Weirdest thing: Cannot Invite friends to party, join parties or message people.

I wanted to invite my friend to a party but When I clicked the "X" button on my controller (I invited him via Xbox Button > Friends), the message that says "Party invite sent" did not show up. Next, I sent him a message. Once I clicked send, Xbox notified me that the message could not be sent. I was never banned from anything because I was playing alone on "NBA 2K13", so I could not of had any violations, and I have never had any. Every time I try joining a party, it says that I cannot connect due to network issues. My Xbox Live GOLD expired recently, but I renewed it. However, My friend was also not able to invite anyone to parties, and he told me that the notification "Party invite sent" did not appear. So I tried what any Xbox LIVE guy would do. I tested my connection to XBOX LIVE and it worked perfectly. What is going on

Xbox Live has acknowledged that, oh yes, they have a problem.  

(they screwed up.. the end) no, just kidding.

I'm very sorry that you're having this problem too.  There were a large number of Xbox Live subscribers who were unable to connect this afternoon.  As of 11:30 CST, there is still a service alert on the main support page that addresses your issue in more detail (as well as other problems that the XBL staff are working on as quickly as possible).  In addition to not being able to send and receive messages, some users are still temporarily unable to access their friends list.

This is a very upsetting issue to many, I am sure, especially if you play on XBL often, and play team-based games with people you know (Call of Duty, Halo, Rock Band, Battlefield, Gears).  The good folks at XBox tech support have assured us that they are working on this issue and hope to have it resolved soon.  I was unable to get on Xbox live for about three hours earlier, and still can't access saved data in a couple of games.  Yes, I used a lot of inappropriate language while figuring out that they still haven't worked the bugs out, but.... yeah, it's xbox. What did you expect? Perfection? (giggling)

For more information, visit the following link:

support.xbox.com/.../xbox-live-status

If there are any issues outstanding, they are described in more detail there (instead of just getting an error message and code when you try to fix it on your console.

You're not alone.  I think there are many unhappy XBL subscribers who pay good money for this service, and they shouldn't have to pay for problems.  I'll be alongside you, praying that they fix this like, NOW.

Best of luck,

Envy

Captain Dyno,

Thank you so much for making the issue more clearly for me!

It's great to know that others have the problem, I thought there was only a problem based around my internet. I am a very XBL type of gamer, so it's unfortunate that the issue happened. Even with the fact that I pay some big bucks on this game to enhance my experience, XBOX LIVE is forgiven. They can't keep a perfect system going on forever, even PS3 had a big problem running the system for a day or so. No big deal. Anyways, thanks again!
