Gets More Social and Windows Phone 7 Features


Gamers will notice a radically revamped experience Wednesday morning. Microsoft is adding a new design and several social features, including an avatar creator, Windows Phone 7 integration and even playable web games.

Though many of the core features will be the same, the social experience will improve with the addition of a unified inbox for messages, friend requests and game requests. You’ll be able to customize your avatar (with previews of new clothing purchases) at the website, and the Marketplace search engine will get new filters and browsing options.
