    Shack PSA: Xbox Live Going Down Next Tuesday - Shacknews - PC Games, PlayStation, Xbox 360 and Wii video game news, previews and downloads

    "Organizing a table-top gaming session? Next Tuesday might be the day for it, as Microsoft has announced it will be shutting down Xbox Live for maintenance starting that morning.

    The tune-up will begin on June 16th at 12:01am PST, and could last up to 24 hours.

    While the maintenance is related to upcoming Xbox Live features--such as the announced avatar marketplace, Xbox 360 digital download store, and Last.fm music streaming, plus Facebook and Twitter integration--users should expect no new functionality to immediately follow the down-time."

    A good day to actually play something other than TF2 on the Orange Box, then.

    Avatar marketplace? They're not gonna try and actually start charging for clothes options are they? That'd be incredibly lame.

    I doubt it. Regular clothing is easy to upload. Probably avatar-exclusive games and more complex clothing like if they made Spartan armor or COG armor.

    That kind of clothing option, yeah I can understand charging for. But there's no way people are gonna spend their points on regular clothes or shoes, etc. As it is the Avatars are pretty much useless. It's only just now we're finally getting a use for them at all, thanks to 1vs100. Sure, A Kingdom for Keflings has been out for awhile, but that's hardly anything huge for Avatars.

    If they do something Like Halo Armor I might get some of those. Be fun to do that.. if it is just clothes, then it would have to be a lot of clothing options I really want and it be really cheap.

    Anyway I might do a bunch of offline gaming. May get Ghostbusters and play the solo of that till Live is back on.
