New Xbox forums get off to rocky start

User indignation at MS typo blunder.

Microsoft's redesigned Xbox forums, which went live earlier today, haven't had the warmest of welcomes, thanks in no small part to a bewildering typo.

A large, impossible-to-miss banner across the revamped site proudly calls upon users to "Join the converation".

Unsurprisingly the blunder has attracted plenty of mockery, but the problems appear to run a little deeper than a spelling error.

A 16 page-long thread details broken RSS feeds, deleted posts, missing features and a raft of general complaints about the new interface.

Microsoft's web team appear to be asleep at their desks – the site has been live for hours now and nobody has popped up to fix the typo or address forum members' concerns.

For posterity, here's a grab of the offending banner.
