first off.

i DO NOT HAVE DLC 4, i read up on that, its not that.

the only downloads for the game i have are the updates and the 2 free maps.

when i boot the game from the xbox dashboard, the screen goes black, then nothing. just sits there.

and i can click the gem key and hear the menu come up, but nothing.

now when i did research on this i found a few things, tried a few things, and only one thing worked.

i turned on my xbox, DID NOT LOG MYSELF IN, then booted the game. the game loaded fine, got to the screens, loaded multiplayer THEN i logged into the game and it didnt black screen.

i tried it a few times. with and without logging in befor launching the game, always loaded when i wasnt logged in, never loaded when i did. also tried on 3 different profiles. same thing.

heres the 2nd problem. even though i got it to load multiplayer, and log in, it freezes when i try to play.

so, any ideas guys?

It seems to be a problem with XBL. Many people are filing tickets on the official forums. It's happening with all games (it seems). I can't player Battlefield, COD, Fifa, or GTA. Guess we all just have to be patient.

I'm having the same issue, TC. I played 2v2 yesterday and it was working fine. Booted it up to play a few minutes ago and went into multiplayer and was introduced to a black screen.
Ladies, children, sheep... Some people call me a terrorist. I consider myself a teacher. Lesson number one: Heroes, there is no such thing.
Oh thank goodness it's not only me then. I was having this problem today in the morning and currently now and was hoping it wasn't just me. It worked fine last night like everyone said but damn...at least I'm not the only one...I hope this gets fixed soon then.

I'm having the same issue. I freaking hate it when one minute something's working, next it isn't for no apparent reason. At least it's not my 360 with the issue.

Same thing with me. Halo 4 didn't work either... got stuck on the "Checking for DLC" screen.

Black Ops II worked though.
I think, therefore I game.
