It was back in October that we really got a first good look at how the new Friends App on Xbox One will look. This is the place on your Xbox that you’ll be able to browse the profiles of all your friends on Xbox Live. You can view their stats, achievements, current activity, Gamerpic, and more. Speaking of their gamer pic, those are now in full HD and look gorgeous with the new UI on Xbox One. You can become part of history and design a Gamerpic for Xbox One today. Details below.
Microsoft is now running a contest where users will submit art that will be used for an Xbox Live members Gamerpic. Those images will play an important role in the Xbox Live community, like they always have. The Xbox team will select 100 images to add to the Gamerpic gallery, so other users can set them as their own Gamerpic. Winners will also get an Xbox One controller.
Images need to be 1080 x 1080, 96dpi, and saved as a PNG file. Those images must also be original art that you’ve created. They can also be either photographic, illustrations, or graphic designs with no text in them. Winners will be determined by both the Xbox Community in a voting round and then further vouched by the Xbox team.
