Which Year Was XBL Basically Broken from Xmas to Feb?

I am trying to remember which year XBL was basically not working from Xmas through the end of January?

Was it the year CoD:WaW came out?

Xmas 2007 I think. They gave away Undertow for free in January, which I already owned. Anyway, Live wasn't busted for Xmas-Feb. My recollection is the week around Xmas-New Years was awful, other than that maybe minor outages here and there.

I think it was '07 to '08, but I can't remember. It has issues every year, but I know what you mean, it was practically unusable for a while.

XBL never goes down just ask the 360 board

OK, thanks. I think you are right 07-08 holiday season.

It was "running" after the end of the first week in January, but still very spotty and unstable until the end of the month.

I remember it being spotty for a week, not down just spotty.

Are you talking about PSN? XBL was never down from xmas-Feb. The only online service that went down for a period of that length was PSN and that wasn't even the right months

XBL was never down and out shut down like PSN, but it was working so poorly over X-mas 07 through the first week in Jan. 08 that in all effect, you could not play online.

I recall the problems persisted through the end of January, though were less frequent. Others seem to be remembering it all being fixed by early January.

That's all how I remember it, except for the part about problems persisting to the end of January. I mean you may be right, I just don't recall either way.
