    Hi there,

    I've had a look through the forums and can't find an answer to this - does anyone know how to change an xbox live gamertag with the EG site?

    I've been into my profile, into Aliases and deleted my old gamertag, added in my new one, but the site still thinks I have the old tag. It's not a big problem obviously but would be nice to sort out.

    Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

    Sort of related, does the EG data grabbing system work after you've renamed your tag via XBL? I just looked at my data and it's something like 4 months out of date.

    I'm in the same situation and raised the issue in the bug reporting / feedback thread, but got no reply. Looks like they forgot to build some of the account admin interface for the new design.

    @Psychotext - that's exactly what I did. Forgot my XBL login from my original xbox, and when my first choice gamertag was freed up earlier this year I changed to it.

    As I say, not a big problem but a little annoying as the integration between current games and the EG site would be quite nice.

    Talking about Live, how do I view my xbl profile on EG? It still displays the message "Thanks (Insert gamertag here)! Your Xbox Live data should be ready to view in a minute or two.

    Still havent been able to view it..
