Custom Gamerpics are Finally Coming to Xbox

Well, there's a pretty good deal in place over at the Microsoft Store that can land you one of the hottest titles out there for free right now.

As for the second game, your choices will be a bit more limited, but you'll still have a few interesting yet older titles to choose from like Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed Syndicate, and Tom Clancy's The Division. There is something called "Xbox One Arena" where you are able to search for tournaments such as those for World of Tanks and more.

"Starting this month, several fan-inspired feature updates will begin to roll out to select Xbox Insider members", a Microsoft representative told me. From your console, Windows 10 PC, or mobile phone, update your gamerpic with a custom image. Microsoft is also expanding the tools for its Clubs and Looking For Group features that should make it easier to create posts and customize the look of your gamer congregation.


Club owners and admins will be identified and labeled in their text posts to better help them stand out and manage their community. In your Activity Feed, you can hide specific posts, pin posts to the top, and filter by several things (friends, games, or clubs). That's among the changes and new features outlined in a blog post from Major Nelson. Insiders will soon have the ability to filter their game library by platform, including Xbox One and Xbox 360.

While we know that Microsoft have no current plans to offer exclusive games for the Xbox Scorpio, we do know that the console will look to offer upgraded 4K gameplay over the base Xbox One - much like the PS4 Pro. Oh, and you can use Kinect auto-zoom for Twitch, Beam, and Skype.

Do you like these improvements?


In addition to the custom gamerpics, the Xbox One profile and activity feed is getting a "Join broadcast" button.

Xbox One exclusive games for 2017 and beyond Fri, December 2, 2016 Microsoft's next wave of Xbox One exclusives include Sea of Thieves, Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3 and more.
