Change Windows Live ID for Xbox Account

image At last! With the December update to the Xbox 360 dashboard, Microsoft introduced a feature that a good number of gamers (me included) have been clamouring for.

It is now possible to change the Windows Live ID attached to your Xbox Live account. This means that I can stop using the obsolete hdurdle@hotmail.com address and move the account – and all my Gamer Points – across to my main email address. Thus laying to rest the last service that had anything attached to my old Passport account. If you’re a 360 gamer, I’m “The BOfH” – note the space and the capitalisation.

Oh yes, and Microsoft also introduced Divx/Xvid support to the in-dash media player. W00t!
