Why Can I Only Have 100 Friends?

100 friend limit?

Okay this has bugged me for a while now, why won’t Microsoft increase the friends limit from the 100 maximum that they released with?

Well  Aaron Greenberg has been speaking to 1UP and this same question was raised. While say that they want to do this he also mentions that it is a lot more complicated than anyone ever realised. One of the biggest problems would be the following.

There’s some interdependences. Some things like original Xbox games have friends lists hard coded in, so there’s things we gotta work through, but we’ll get it figured out, it’s something we want to do

And since Microsoft are now pushing the downloadable original Xbox games this becomes more of an issue.

I know my list is currently sitting at 98 and since the community has gotten so big all of those people play regularly. So regularly infact that I delete anyone who hasn’t played in 7 days 😉

    Yes it would be very nice to have more than 100 Friends
    on a list, what i have found with the new friends of friends
    feature, if you know which of your friends have lot of players you also play with that you don’t have space for on your list, is you can with 3 button clicks get over and browse it, yes a little bit of a hasle but at least doable.

    Unless they are like me and have activated the privacy option….

    I don’t like facebook and I don’t like people browsing my friends list 😉

    I’ve only enabled friends, which I think is fine. Creating a Silver account is actually a great way of making an improvised “clan list”.

    I really don’t care about the size of the list, but I constantly hover in the high nineties. A few of the names on my list I can’t even remember playing with.

    I wish that they change the system to friends groups that place friends in games groups.
