Just as you thought it was safe to go onto Xbox Live after the problems with PS3, it looks like there may be a small problem.
Microsoft has issued a service alert for users of Xbox Live. According to the Xbox Live Status page on Xbox.com, “Users may receive potential fishing attempts via title specific messaging while playing Modern Warfare 2.”
“We are aware of the problem and are working to resolve the issue. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.”
Xbox Live, Xbox Live Marketplace and Account systems are all reported on the support site as working normally.
It seems to us that all game companies will be on high alert after the PSN outage.
