Changes coming to Xbox.com

 

 

Tomorrow, Xbox.com will be getting a massive facelift and I want to give you a preview of what you can expect.  In addition to support for the 9 new Xbox LIVE regions that will happen next month, Xbox.com will get a brand new look as well as some new features.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

Browser based Avatar editor: Edit your avatar and preview avatar items before purchase

Combined views for messages, friend and game requests

Improved notification of your account subscription

Leverage Family Reports to understand what your family is doing and how they are using LIVE

Play web games with your Xbox LIVE friends on the web or on Windows Phone 7

Marketplace: More powerful search and more intuitive ways to browse and filter

 

Those are just a few of the changes, starting tomorrow you’ll be able to explore the entire thing yourself. Until then, I’ve uploaded a few screen shots to get hold you over until then.

 

Note:

In order to prepare for these changes, starting at 0500 ET/0200 PT/0900 GMT on October 20th (tomorrow) Xbox.com and the Xbox forums will be offline and unavailable for a short period of time. When it returns, you’ll see the new site.

 

The Xbox LIVE service is not affected by this upgrade and will remain available during this time.

 

Update: The upgrade is in progress. Until it is complete, you may see some slowness, error pages (and maybe more) on Xbox.com. Thanks for your patience while the team finishes the upgrade.

 

Edit: Once the update is complete, drop by the Xbox.com forums and let us know what you think

    @metallicorphan It must have just gotten fixed shortly before the update because last week I unlocked 2 of them on the puppet thing. Then went back two days ago and the site no longer worked.

    Almost there… youve almost got the game achievements pages fixed. They now dont show secret achievement pictures, and the unlocked ones are in the order of latest achieved first… Now just get rid of that alphabetical sorting and go back to the group sorting you had before and im all set. See Star Wars Force Unleashed 1 achievements for what i mean. DLC is mixed in with the regular and similar achievements are all out of order due to alphabetical sorting.
