    I was out running errands tonight and the wife and kids were playing Kinect.
    When I got home they said they saw me log in and I stayed logged in for a few minutes.

    I checked my status and sure enough it showed I had logged in and that I was playing 'Unknown'.
    Has anyone had anything like this happen to them.
    I have no idea what it could be.
    Even if I have used Spark on my phone it doesn't show me as logging into Live.

    Sorry, that was me. I needed an alias so I could insult various mob gangs who beat me in Halo over XBL without fear of reprimand. (PS, if Vince "The Sodomizer" Delgado sends you a threatening message, I suggest moving to Europe where they sell those kevlar underpants with the locks)

    You don't have a Zune or use the Zune software on your PC, do you?

    I don't know.
    That's the problem with buying Unknown.
    You never know what you're playing or if you had fun or not.

    Now I read this.
    I should not have accepted the friend request.
    But, I saw 'SodomizeU wants to be your friend' and I thought 'Hey neat!'.

    Neither of those things.
    I use Spark on my phone, but that has never shown a log in before -and I wasn't using it.

    The lag on multiplayer brings it down a notch, though. :D

    Smasher others have been shown to be playing an unknown game a lot recently according xbox.com, supposedly the latest update has been causing spats on people's profiles - actually making them appear logged in when not.

    I'm not up on current Marvel lore, but the Taskmaster looks cool there.
    Nicely updated design.

    this happened to friends of mine over the weekend too, they showed up as playing lara croft for 72 hours straight.
    this turned out to be a lie.

    Sweet. If I show up playing DOAX2 or Rumble Roses, its a glitch.
