New Xbox Update Leads To Online Problems

Many of you have been anticipating the arrival of the new Xbox 360 dashboard update.  Today, after a delay of the release of the update, users have either 1. got the update and are now enjoying it or 2. you get the update but run into an error message (specifically, error message  3524 0000 0080 0200 8015 1909) that prevents you from playing your games online.

The error has been affecting an alarming amount of people.  Xbox Live’s Director of Programming Larry Hyrb tweeted, ”Some Xbox Live members are getting a connection error when signing in to Live. We are aware of the issue and the team is working it!” Users can also check the current status of all Xbox Live-related services, including Xbox Live itself, here.  (Follow me on Twitter to find out the status)

Some people have found ways to work around this problem.  One solution that seems to work is to sign on to Xbox Live through a different game such as Battlefield and then switch discs.  People have also found that repeatedly trying to find a break in the online traffic eventually works.  Another option is to download the update from Xbox.com to a flashdrive and then install it locally (although many people haven’t found this solution to work as well).
