    I'm trying to re-download my old games and some DLC but I'm greeted with this message:

    "There's a problem with Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Please try again later.

    Status code: 800700E8
    "

    When I try to download something, it says "Can't download [insert download here]" and I just checked now that when I go to download history, all items are named "Content not available". Is it also down for you? I'm in Europe and I wanna make sure if this is a global problem or something.

    I've also tried port forwarding, using static IP, using normal ones, connecting with no ports opened, resetting my router, cleared my cache, everything!

    EDIT: All clear!

    Haha, hope this'll stop all the Xbox fan boys mocking Sony so much.

    Agreed. But I hope it'll be fixed ASAP since I wanna download my bonus LA Noire case, and some DLC.

    You do realize this problem will actually be fixed in under 24 hours or less, right? Unlike Sony who takes 3-4 weeks to fix something which will just end up breaking again.

    It doesn't even sound like a serious problem. It's not like they got hacked and everybody's information got stolen. And since people get what they pay for, it shouldn't take 3-4 weeks to fix this marketplace issue.

    Either way, everything gets fucked at one point or another whether it takes 4 weeks or 4 hours. Shit happens, hopefully this will be resolved soon, as it's JUST the marketplace.
