    I'm trying to purchase some Microsoft points from within my 360, and I get the error 'Can't retrieve information from Xbox LIVE. Please try again later. Status code: 80150019'. I can download free stuff though and browse the marketplace. I tried to purchase online through Xbox.com but I get a '500 - Server Error' when I go here http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-GB/

    Anyone else having this problem today? And is there anywhere else where I can buy some points online?

    Well it works now! (The site, anyway).

    EDIT: The Marketplace website is back but you still can't purchase any points (Server is Unavailable).

    EDIT 2: ...and now the homepage has gone again. What is going on..

    i am haveing the exact same problem. i tried to download some points and then it said that te points were added and then i went to download the nazi zombie map on call of duty: world at war and it said that i did not have a balance after it said that the points were added. also before when i tried it said the i would have to try again later and that the status code was 80150019 or something like that. im not sure if i spent the money on the points or not because it said i did but it also said that i didnt have a balance. any help would be greatly aprecciated.

    Xbox Live is currently experiencing issues with it's billing and account management services amongst other possible problems.

    I can say that I simply kept trying and was able to add points and make my CoD5 map purchase after a little bit.

    IMHO, Xbox Live Marketplace has been slow since the day Call of Duty 4 came out. Even Halo 3 wasn't enough to bog it down.
