That could explain the reason for the sporadic performance. Primotech says the reason that the Live service has been so bad recently is due to denial of service attacks. Could this be why we're having trouble downloading movies and hooking up with friends to rock out on Rock Band? If so, maybe this will help Microsoft secure their network a little more so we won't have these issues again.
