It seems the launch of the new experience on Microsoft's Xbox 360 hasn't gone as we might have expected with users reporting a host of glitches with the new software update.

Within 24 hours of NXE going live, internet forums were abuzz with Xboxers reporting connection freezes, lock-ups and a number of other errors.

Worst of all, there are even some reports that the infamous red ring of death is back, with some saying it's limited to modded consoles, while others claiming untampered units are being affected too.

Xbox Live's Major Nelson has admitted there have been "a few issues" with the New Xbox Experience update, but says that they are being worked on.

Writing on his blog, the Major said: "With an update of this magnitude, reaching more than 14 million people around the globe, we are aware some of you may be experiencing a few hiccups along the way".

"The Live team is closely monitoring the Live service and and are aware of a few issues including what's happening with Marketplace. The team is actively working on the issues, so thanks for bearing with us."
