Xbox Live down for maintenance tomorrow

In case you’ve forgotten, Xbox Live is down for maintenance tomorrow (Tuesday 16th June 2009) which means Xbox LIVE and the ‘My Xbox’ section of will be unavailable. It also means the Xbox forums will be in read-only mode and therefore you won’t be able to post.

The online service will be taken down at 8am and normal service is expected to resume about 24 hours later, just in time for Wednesday’s Xbox Live Arcade releases. Major Nelson has informed us that the service maintenance is to “prepare for some of the recently announced features” such as the Avatar Marketplace and Games on Demand.

No new features will be available when the service resumes. What will you be doing while Xbox Live is down? Leave us a comment with your thoughts.
