Xbox Live Gamerscores Resetting? Here’s How to Fix It

by Ryan SmithMarch 13, 2012

It seems as though a lot of Xbox LIVE users are experiencing a problem in which their gamerscores are resetting to a whopping 0, and not because they’ve been cheating. Early word suggests that it’s a problem with the recent update allowing Xbox LIVE Arcade games to have a higher gamerscore limit.

Microsoft has made not of the problem, and on the Xbox Live Support page, a yellow banner appears with the message, “If you are experiencing issues with zero Achievements and Gamerscore, please logout and login again.”

Some users are reporting the logout-login fix isn’t working, and some are saying that deleting your profile and re-downloading it (importing) corrects the issue.

Other users have said that avatar items and props have disappeared, but none of that’s been confirmed at this point.

Have you experienced this problem? Did one of the solutions work? Let us know in the comment.

At the age of 3, Ryan received an NES from a relative and the rest is history. Sneaking up past his bed time to play Ninja Gaiden or Super Mario Bros was a common practice for him, and often caught too. Wasting his youth away on the SNES or Genesis, slamming controllers, and wishing death upon his video game foes. Many a nights Ryan stayed awake to defeat that final boss. There was nothing more rewarding. As the PlayStation and N64 came around, his love for video games increased until it inevitably became one of his passions. Now days, much of his free time is consumed by playing on Xbox Live with friends. Here on The Game Fanatics as the Reviews Editor, Ryan gets to share his passion of videos games with all of you! There's nothing more rewarding than that. /win
