PES 2009 demo causes Xbox Live sign-in problems

Over the last day or so, many of you may have experienced problems when signing into Xbox Live as the console freezes. You may have tried everything including cleaning your cache and may have thought it was to do with Microsoft’s maintenance and downtime during the week. Fortunately, it’s a little bit simpler than that.

The cause of the console’s freezing is the Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 demo, released yesterday. Those of you who downloaded the demo will no doubt have acknowledged the problem of the console freezing whilst it downloaded, and any attempts to sign into Xbox Live after failed. The simple solution to the matter is to boot up your Xbox 360, making sure you are not signed into Xbox Live, and delete the demo from your hard drive. You should then be able to access Xbox Live as normal.
