Title: XBL matchmaking probs
Post by: GreyMouser on 12:59 PM - 04/07/13
Been trying to take a break from Bioshock Inf. [Aside, love my new PC vid card!]

Since Friday, I thought I was console banned bec. I can't stay connected with B02 for even one match. Plus, no one on these forums was mentioning problems with XBL.

Went to the XBL website and saw that matchmaking is having problems.

Anyone else having similar troubles with XBL as me?

Thanks. Tried that but no help. Apparently it's a 'bad luck' thing. Some people are getting hit (like me) while some are not (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=5685699).

Yes. I always have been. I truly have 'first world problems': a job where I have the $ to buy all the consoles -- but no time to play them, LOL.

I have IRL fanboy friends on both systems. None of them wants to switch over to another console. So I bought both...The costs you pay to stay in touch, LOL.

I actually prefer the 360 over PS3 for most games. I just don't advertise my XBL gt here bec. my previous one got hacked. Never could figure out why, to this day. My pswd was actually kind of complicated, LOL.

I just played PS3 for our twitch channel bec. it seems no one else was able to do so. Trying to be a 'good citizen' for this community. There are times where the PS3 sits in the corner gathering dust for awhile -- esp. since my main IRL buddy's wife just popped out a kid. I don't think he'll be on for awhile.

I have BO2 for both systems, LOL. Again, the price I pay for trying to stay in touch with my buddies.

I too have similar issues. I have both systems and buy a lot of the AAA titles. Most times actually preorder them with the intent of making time to sit and play. As most of us know life gets in the way. Since I got my xim I make a point to get away for an hour or two. Still trying to get my ideal settings but have come to the realization perhaps I just suck. As for xbox live, I had trouble off and on all weekend playing Halo 4. Sometimes with serious lag or even getting booted out of matches all together. I'm sure it wasn't just my connection cause over chat everybody else was complaining as well. I haven't tried today but, I hope they've fixed the server issues.
