Earlier today we asked our readers whether they were experiencing problems with the new Xbox 360 dashboard, most of the problems were download-related and are the result of huge demand on Microsoft’s servers, however some people’s friends lists were seemingly wiped, which was obviously very annoying.
I thought I would contact Xbox Support regarding the issue, to be honest I didn’t expect a reply, however they replied within 15 minutes, and it is good news.
You can see the reply below, as you can see it is probably the result of a huge amount of traffic and will repopulate itself over time, so if your list is blank it will probably be sorted pretty soon.
I had a little search around and it seems as if people are reporting that their friends lists have now reappeared a few hours after installing the update, has yours?
