Say goodbye to the old design; a new one is making its debut tomorrow. The news was announced on Major Nelson’s site along with a list of new features. Most importantly the site will now feature support for new Xbox Live regions, plus there are some other cool tweaks like a browser-based Avatar editor or the ability to play web games with your XBL friends.

It’s nice to see the update getting more than a lick of paint, there are a full list of improvements below.

  • Browser based Avatar editor: Edit your avatar and preview avatar items before purchase
  • Combined views for messages, friend and game requests
  • Improved notification of your account subscription
  • Leverage Family Reports to understand what your family is doing and how they are using LIVE
  • Play web games with your Xbox LIVE friends on the web or on Windows Phone 7
