    Sorry, I'm trying to figure out what your issue is? It sounds like you were disconnected from Xbox Live or something. Can you not play right now or something? Were you able to sign right back in and play afterwards?

    If so, likely a network disconnect...

    Cheers

    Entire day? How bout saving for months with todays economy to buy the Retro Lancer + GoW3 Slim Xbox360 and then finding out you get screwed by microsoft on the content transfer from a data corruption from the beta save to the new harddrive.

    Epic didn't think this out at all. Very disappointing, just like every other company - cutting corners to save money, when honestly they make more money then anyone needs.

    I think the OP is talking about people being locked out of Gears because their gamertag is corrupted. Hapened to alot of people who split screened Gears 2. Basicall causing the effected gamertag to freeze the game when the Updating Network screen arrives. You could still playother games online without issue and only effected Gears. To fix it you had to load the training missions with an active account and then sign out and into the corrupted profile. To avoid this make sure to always sign in to your profiles at the dashboard, prior to starting the game.

    Yeah, I need you to be very descriptive on what is happening to your gamertag, when did it start happening, and what were you doing leading up to this happening?

    i am just giving a heads up so they can tweek this before it's a calamity, this same thing happened big time in the weeks leading up to gears 3 on gears 2 discs

    when you try to sign in it locks up the 360, almost always you can sign in offline or with another gt but the "corrupted" gt freezes the xbox 360 and you have to do a hard shutdown.
    it was all over the gears 2 forum especially the last weeks leading to gears 3???!!!!???

    I guess I will say actually something that I have noticed an increase of in Gears 3 is dashboard freeze-ups when clicking the guide button while Gears 3 is running - whether it's after receiving a message, opening a gamer profile, or just pushing it in general. Sometimes I'll have to wait up to a minute for it to unfreeze if I don't turn the console off, sometimes it just freezes up and a shut down is needed.

    I'm not sure if that's related to your issue or not, but you reminded me of it so I thought I'd post. It doesn't happen all the time, and it can happen in other games too, but I've definitely noticed it more since getting Gears 3.

    Xbox 360 Slim.

    Cheers

    Alright everyone, this has just become top priority for me. Everyone recount what the last things you were doing before your profile broke. What gametype were you playing? Were you in a party? Ranked or Public? Splitscreen? When did you leave the game? What was your rank? DETAILS!

    Awesome, thanks for actively helping out.

    I haven't personally experienced what the OP is talking about, but when I open the Guide occasionally (seems to always be after receiving a game invite or party invite) it freezes up for a long period of time, sometimes forcing a restart. This has happened to me at the main menu as well as in games (public Team Deathmatch). It's not often, but occasional. It has happened at various ranks for me.

    It maybe be completely unrelated and could just be a dashboard problem, but thought I'd post it nonetheless.

    Cheers!

    There is a number of threads on here about this problem:

    All with the same problem and most caused by a split screen glitch that resets player 1's rank and freezes player 2's account from doing anything.
