You may have been excited if you caught the rumor earlier that the Xbox Live friend list was being expanded to 1,000, up from a paltry 100. That was one of the limitations of the original Xbox Live, and once it went offline earlier in 2010, many thought an expansion would be in the works. A posting on the Xbox Germany Facebook page seemed to have confirmed that earlier today making many people quite happy.
Sadly, good things come to those who wait, and wait we will. Major Nelson quickly dashed everyone’s hopes when he tweeted that won’t be part of the new dash. Those who are in the Dashboard beta knew that, but there was still hope that change could be made when it was all official. That apparently won’t be the case. Those who want even more friend sign-on notifications when online will still have to wait until… whenever apparently.
