Xbox Dot Com Relaunches with Avatar Maker and Windows Phone 7 Games

by admin | October 19, 2010 4:09 pm

[1]The website of Xbox[2] Live (Xbox.com) will be relaunched in a few hours from now with a bunch of new features, which will include an avatar editor (much like the Miis[3] in Nintendo Wii, only less silly-looking), a new message viewer, and an updated Marketplace browser.

But what makes the relaunch more exciting is that members can now play Web-based games with their Xbox Live friends whether on the web or using a Windows Phone 7[4] device.

Just take note that all while Xbox.com is down today for the facelift and in subsequent days for maintenance, the Xbox Live service remains uninterrupted.
