Modern Warfare 3 Matchmaking Problems On LIVE?

Unsupported LIVE Regions Afflicted

If you're looking to play Modern Warfare 3 in countries where Xbox LIVE's extensive reach doesn't... well, reach, then you might find the Activision shooter's matchmaking won't work. Xbox Support took to Twitter to alert fans in unsupported regions that Modern Warfare 3 won't be accessible online. "COD: MW3 multiplayer online is only accessible if you're in an eligible Xbox Live region," they told followers, with Croatia one of the countries affected.

Don't surrender all hope just yet, though; as Infinity Ward's community chief, Rob Bowling, told followers the two MW3 teams are "actively discussing" the issue and "talking to users affected". However, he admits to no "ETA at this point", with the likes of Malaysia, Norway, Portugal, Greece, Cyprus and Finland reporting such issues. We'll have more for you on this as it develops.

Am I missing something, or is this basically saying that XBox Live isn't available in countries that don't support XBox Live?

and is this really news when we live in the UK - which IS in a 'Live' region.

Unless we are just going for schadenfreude, in which case homeless people wont have Live this christmas either.
