    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, have a look at the attached photos below!

    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.

    I can't wait to try the browser based Avatar editor. Just from the screenshot's it looks like it will be a excellent addition to Xbox.com.

    I have to agree with King, the browser based avatar editor looks great. Live gamers who only play on the PC or Windows Phone 7 will be able to have avatars too now.

    Ah I never knew that about Windows Phone 7.

    Its good to see the website is a lot more organised, I honestly got totally lost on the old one at times... especially when trying to find the redeem code box, for some reason I always had trouble with that.

    You should watch this video:
    [video=youtube;k6KRjT24ty4]

    It is cool that you can get 200 Gamerscore points from every Windows Phone 7 XBL game.
    If you download the Zune PC software from zune.net you can see the games released for WP7

    It asks password in many places. I think that it asks pasword for pages that don't exist.

    There will be 1000's of servers powering Xbox.com, the update will have to be pushed out to them all which I guess will take a bit of time.

    You probably randomly hit a server that had been updated.
