So I went online to play some BF3. Got stuck on a loading screen. Exited the game and got disconnected from XBL. Trying to sign back in presents an error. Reboot. Try another game. Same issue. Reboot. Try another. Same thing. Try borrowing a friends old spare HD. Try to recover my gamer profile. Error message. Talked to some other friends over XBL from the home screen and they are also having issues. Anyone else having these issues?

So far have not seen anything on Kotaku.com or TAY.kinja.com about this.
