Avatar And Dash Improvements Coming To Xbox

Avatar And Dash Improvements Coming To Xbox
Published by wes213 on Tuesday, June 02, 2009
Tagged: Gaming, Live Marketplace, Xbox 360, Xbox Live,
While it may not be the biggest news coming out of E3 this year it is certainly some good news that lets us know there is a dash update heading to the 360 some time this summer so check this out and keep your eyes open for more info as soon as we get it.

The Microsoft event yesterday mentioned loads of stuff coming to Xbox Live, and we touched on that briefly here. However, we have been handed more details this morning.

  • "Avatar Marketplace. Since the launch of NXE, millions of Avatars have been created on Xbox LIVE, giving our members a whole new way to express themselves online, in games, and in their social experiences. Starting this summer, you will see some great new ways to make your Avatar truly your own. First, we heard loud and clear from you that you wanted to get new avatar items as awards when playing games, and I'm happy to announce support for in-game Avatar Awardables. Second, you're going to see some great new options with animated Props and full costumes to add to your Avatar. Finally, we're continuing that spirit of customization and self-expression with a virtual closet full of premium clothing and interactive props to download and purchase for your Avatar. Whether its game-inspired gear or the latest fashion trends, there will be creative options for everyone to enjoy. You'll also be able to easily access the new Avatar Marketplace directly through the Avatar editor.

  • "User Ratings. We're adding a five star rating system that lets you easily rate any content in the Games Marketplace. Now you'll be able to show your support for your favorite games and Game Add-ons on Xbox LIVE and also quickly organize by user rating to find the community's favorite content. This has been one of your most-requested features, and we're very happy to bring it to you this summer.

  • "Performance Updates. We know that the details also matter. That's why we're making a series of updates based on your feedback. First and foremost, the entire Xbox LIVE service is being upgraded for improved performance including better guide and friends access. Some other things we've done based on your feedback include revamping the friends sorting list, Achievement views and improving our matchmaking support.

    Expect all three improvements to land sometime this summer.
