Call of Duty 4: Variety Map Pack is held up by Xbox Live

Xbox LiveImage from WikipediaWell the Call of Duty 4: Variety Map Pack may well be out, but at the moment that’s about as much use to me as a tampon.

I don’t know whether the map pack has caused a sudden rush onto Xbox Live or whether it’s just a coincidence, but for whatever reason I’m getting all sorts of errors trying to download the map pack. 8015000a – very descriptive error message, thanks Microsoft.

The Xbox Live status page says the following, so I guess it’s not just me:

Xbox LIVE users may experience issues with purchasing marketplace items, account recovery and account management.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

I guess Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 won’t start gathering dust tonight after all.
