As Sony suffers their worst PR disaster for years (and us customers are left reeling with doubts over credit card and ID theft) it looks like Microsoft might be experiencing something too.
There’s a Service Alert for ‘matchmaking’ on the official site, that says users “may experience difficulties” regarding Modern Warfare 2. Apparently there are “potential phishing attempts via title specific messaging” so be aware if you’re playing that game.
“We are aware of the problem and are working to resolve the issue,” say Microsoft. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.”
Everything else on LIVE appears fine.
