Welp our friends at Microsoft are doing some major improvements to the Xbox dashboard interface, which is due out on Nov 19th! Learn more about that here:

Two things That both Hearts and Spades have been updated to support is 1) the new 3d Avatar system and 2) the Party system.

With the New Avatars, both games have an option to allow you to use your new custom avatar right in the game as your player. The bots are now 3d as well and that allows not only for some cool customization, but also for them to move and react to game events like being pelted with a fireball Foom, or getting a bad card.

And the Party system rocks. It allows you to hook up with your pals and go play our games as a group. No more waiting for random strangers to fill a seat, play with folks ya know!

We also hope to have our new Hardwood Spades theme up for the update launch too, if it's not there then, it should be soon to follow, so keep a lookout. It's got a cool wood and card game motive!

Anyhow, be sure to check out the new Xbox update on the 19th, and the updated Hardwood Hearts and Hardwood Spades game and theme.

Here's the link to the official press release:
