new Xbox.com about to debut
http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/b/com...tions.aspx

excerpts:

In the coming days, the familiar “My Xbox” section of Xbox.com is going away. Fear not: It’s being replaced with a significant update that will make it even easier to see what your friends are doing on Xbox LIVE. My Xbox is being superceded by the new “Social” section, which not only lets you see at a glance what your friends are up to, but also gives you early access to one of the coolest features coming in the next Xbox 360 dashboard update. That’s right: Xbox.com users will be the very first to try the new Beacons feature, which lets you mark games you want to play with others, making it easier to find friends who want to play the same games.

The Friends Activity column shows you the popular games that your friends have been playing, who is playing those games right now, and who else has played them recently. (More on this in a few.) In the right-hand column, you can see the games and applications you’ve most recently loaded, as well as how many friends are playing them, and below that, you can view a list of your online friends and what they’re currently doing.

Click “Activity” at the top of the screen to view the new Activity page. At the top, in the My Recent Activity section, you’ll see the titles you’ve most recently played and which of your friends are playing them as well, in addition to any titles you’ve set a Beacon for. To set a Beacon for a title that you want to play with others, you’ll just find it in your activity list and click the “Set Beacon” button. You can have up to three Beacons active at a time, and you can optionally add a custom description (such as “From 7-10 pm Pacific” or “Horde Mode!”).

RE: new Xbox.com about to debut
the new Xbox.com is really cool! functionality is really nice. I set 3 beacons (which is the limit) but without the new dash, I don't know if anyone can see the beacons.

I love the new interface.

Yes I can see your 3 beacons, but I have to go on my activity page to see them per game or on your profile to see them all. I thought that we could see them from the Home page.

I can't say much because of NDA, but if you have the new dash, it's very obvious about the beacons on the Xbox. maybe they didn't implement it well enough on the web interface.

They still haven't fixed the sorting in the marketplace on xbox.com, when you sort by release date it's still wrong. Tongue
