Halo 3 Influx Affecting Xbox Live Performance

Consumers report that Xbox Live is being pushed to the limits, presumably due to the high number of gamers playing Halo 3 online.

Various Xbox Live users have experienced inaccurate game stats, performance slowdown, inability to access friend lists, and an inability to perform system updates.

After experiencing trouble on Tuesday night, one gamer reputedly called Microsoft's help line in which a representative responded by saying that Xbox Live was experiencing network difficulties.

The issue appears to be intermittent, however, as several gamers reported no problems outside of inaccurate stat data such as number of players online.

Hundreds of thousands of Halo 3 owners have flocked to Xbox Live in an effort to play online since the game launched on Tuesday. To read our review of this insanely popular shooter, click here. Or, to view a slideshow and find out what all the fuss is about, click here.
