Xbox Live Matchmaking Gets Service Alert

In other Xbox Live news, Microsoft has issued a service alert for XBL matchmaking in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The XBL status site shows that all other systems are “up and running,” but in the case of Modern Warfare 2 matchmaking specifically, there’s a big red exclamation point accompanied by a message that reads:

Users may receive potential phishing attempts via title specific messaging while playing Modern Warfare 2.

We are aware of the problem and are working to resolve the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.

While that’s not nearly as bad as Sony’s debacle, the amount of scamming, fraud, and downright ne’er-do-welling in my gaming life is making me think I shouldn’t have turned down that extreme backgammon scholarship after all.

  1. It seems that now i’m going to have to find a way to remove my credit card info from xbox live too. This is getting really really bad. How much can we continue to put up with as a consumer and gamer. On the bright side this may find a way to break the DLC stupidity that is going on with some publishers but only time will tell.

  2. @dissapointed u dont have to remove ur credit card just dont give ur information to anyone trying phish, people are under the impresstion that xbox was hacked and its not its just a bunch of stupid fake hackers who are sending msgs to people asking for their information dont be fooled and youll be ok

  3. “we apoligize for inconvenience”

    thank you sir , i feel alot better now.

  4. This occasionally happens to me once in a blue moon, just don’t reply and block communications; a simple solution to a simple problem.

  5. Ahh, at least i have a pc

  6. 7/26/14,I just finished playing a game online live (warface then Saints Row)and then started having Sign in issues of Xbox live not being able too go back on. “What is the BIG DEAL anyway’s (This time last year: I WAS SHORTED BY 1.5 TO 2 MONTHS GOLD SERVICE’S THAT I PAID IN FULL FOR MY 12 MONTH GOLD CARD)”For Me Money does’nt Grow on Tree’s and I sure was not Born with a SILVER spoon in my mouth…..LOL :)
