Honestly I actually like it. The old version was just too outdated, they needed to put a newer version up. I'm not in "LOVE" with it so to speak, there are some bugs and problems with it but I like it over the last version. Also most people say they hate it but most of them, not all, will eventually come around to liking it. Of course this is just my little bitty opinion on it. Everyone will have different opinions on the matter.

@ NameTaken69 - Just hit refresh and it should start working fine. That's what I had to do.

I don't like it.

The easy functionality for me is gone and I'd much prefer to have the old design back. I'm not saying that a new design is bad I just think they have done to many things wrong in matters of placing and accessibility. The worst thing for me is the placing of compare games, I only found it if I hover over the persons gamertile on the friendlist.

Pond cat
06-17-2009, 08:27 AM
I think it looks way better than the previous version!

And I found I can compare friends by hovering over the friends profile that comes up when you click on your own gamertag.

Evil Demon55
06-17-2009, 08:28 AM
Under achievements, it shows your achievements for that game, not theirs... wtf! And they messed it up, it says "This player has not earned any achievements yet." Even though it should say "You have not earned any achievements for this game yet.".

The only way I found to compare games with a random person is to first compare games with one of your friends, and then change the gamertag on the address bar.

Um... no you don't. It takes just as long to get to your messages as the last one. Click the drop-down box and then click messages. Simple.

I like this new Xbox.com anyway and I don't care about comparing with other people, because I honestly couldn't give a shit about what games people I don't know have played.

i dont think they've heard of the saying if it aint broke dont fix it.

06-17-2009, 09:28 AM
I hope they give us the option to revert back to the old layout, which is completely unlikely. I find this new layout awkward to use, and that could be because it is new, but the placement of some things are just unessecary. Also I assume where it shows friends avatars for those who are online it can only show three people wereas the previous layout howed five or six.

wait how the eff did you guys get on, mine still says its up for matinence

If the people who want to compare with Recent players and they are complaining it loads to slow and you would rather send messages on Live well while your on Live compare with them and what's the point of comparing with some one random? If you want to so badly right after the game go over their Gamertag and Compare or add them to your Friends List.

I don't see how it can be too slow, but that's me.

|oneyedNewb|
06-17-2009, 10:15 AM
I don't like it at all...The other one was pretty much simplistic if not a tad boring but I liked that, I don't see why they have to muck around with the website everytime we go under matience.

I don't see how it can be too slow, but that's me.

There are several reasons why I would like to compare to randoms:

To see if they have unlocked a certain achievement before me or if I need help for it.

To see if they have the games I'm playing so I can see if there is reason to add them in the first place.

I like to browse other peoples tags to see what they have completed and what they have not.

I'm generally a lousy stalker with too much spare time :drunk

If you click on a friend it comes up with all the things you can do with them like compare games etc. I like it.

but on a whole, it suits the NXE more and IMO looks more professional.

DarKnight80
06-17-2009, 11:43 AM
It is different... I'll give it that. It will just take some getting use to is all. I don't mind it.

I do like comparing games with my friends. I was upset when I thought we could not do that anymore, but once it was figured out, it's cool.

Xedoss
06-17-2009, 12:00 PM
I don't really like it. The grey is too dark and I don't really need to see my friends avatars all in the same boring position. They could've filled that up with actually usefull information.

basically go to your 'friends' list, put the mouse pointer or highlight someone's avatar and it should give you opitions of 'send msg/go to profile' etc- compare games is in the listing.

06-17-2009, 12:39 PM
style over substance. let me guess, the open space on the right is going to be all ads.

dakisbac
06-17-2009, 12:52 PM
I just got home but I'm liking it so far.

Major issue: The card that pops up when you hover over someone's name blocks out the other people's cards. They should have used all the space on the right as the location for the card to pop up.

Minor issues: They need to change the color on the friends list page that indicates who's online (you can barely tell the difference) and the color of the "your message has been sent" text

It really doesn't like my version of IE, takes forever to load, and when it does, half the shit is missing

I assume you're using IE because you prefer it to Firefox, in which case you should get Firefox anyway and install the IE Tab add-on. Browse like you're on IE, in Firefox.

No search a for a player anymore... lame!

Also, they took us off our Xbox 360 for am xbox.com update??? WTF the point of that?

The player search button is still where it always was, under the Community tab (which is unchanged). Even if it were gone, you could always just type the profile you're looking for into the URL.

There should be a 50/50 option on the poll. That's how I feel... I liked the simplicity of the old version, but aesthetically, the new version is better. And much like a few others, I'm big on comparing games with friends and it sucks there's no easy way to get access to that.

As i'm at work I can only go on the site and the changes don't seem too different to me.

That might be because the UK homepage has NOT been changed. The other pages such as the friends pages HAVE changed. The US homepage has changed too I think, I don't normally go on the US homepage, but it looks different so I assume that is also what people are talking about.

Im having second thoughts now.

How do I compare games with someone on my friends list who doesnt appear on the 3 highlighted friends? I click on friends then who I want to compare with and I cant.

Cant find how to other then highlighted friends who you click on for a quick link.

Tarvu
06-17-2009, 05:21 PM
What the fuck? How can people like it? it is so poorly designed it makes me want to break the internet.

Your own avatar takes up half the screen, you now need to scroll down to see your friends. You don't even see a list, it now has their Avatars and an image of the game they are playing. It is sacrificing functionality for this shitty NXE look that is slowly infecting everything to do with Xbox.

I don't go on 'My Xbox' because I'm worried my Avatar has spontaneously changed, I use it to keep track of who is online and shoot messages to people.

Over a third of the fucking page is now dedicated to advertisement of things to do with xbox.

Fuck this nonsense.

I really like it, the avatar features are great and it looks a lot more modern! :)

Though, it is still needs a lot of tweaking, as certain things are not displayed properly for me, and my friends have no achievements in any games...

EDIT: How do you compare games with friends now?

Jollyrodger16
06-17-2009, 08:20 PM
I like it when they change it, sense they haven't done one that struck me at "Perfect". Until they do, I don't really care what they change it to. However; I'm using Firefox also, and it's definitely much slower for me then it use to be. Otherwise I'm okay with it.

I wasn't aware xbox.com had been closed down for maintenance but from what I saw today I have to say that it's an improvment.
It may not be that big of an improvement but it makes browsing through your achievements and friends much easier.
I also enjoy the new color scheme as opposed to the plain white one.

This was something I noticed. I might have missed where we can do this but I'm lost. I don't see why they need to spend time tweaking things like the layout. There was nothing wrong with the way profiles looked. The new layout will take some time to get used to but I prefer the old one.

For one, if I was to click on your gamertag right now (through x360a) there is no way for us to compare games and see who has which achievements and so forth, which is makes it harder to find the proper people to boost with.

The only way you can compare games, is that they must be on your friends list (maybe recent message too) and you need to scroll over there gamer picture and select compare games.

I like it. It's very clean looking. I like the viewing friends and seeing what they're doing part. Now finding things? Pfft, terrible.

I like how you can now actually set things to private, like your profile and set videos and viewing your friends for friends only. I like that. I don't like creeps sending me nasty video requests and spying on my profile o_o

Other than that 8/10.

Anyone figure out how to search for gamertags? It used to be right at the bottom but it isn't there anymore.

I cannot stand the updated site. I think it is seriously broken. I can currently compare games with 3 friends who show up in avatar form on my page, but I cannot compare from their profile. The site takes forever to load and when it does half of the page is missing, the layout is all wrong. So what i'm trying to say is, it's horrible.
