Xbox LIVE Avatars Get Violent

It’s no secret that Microsoft Studios has placed firm restrictions on what can be down with their Xbox LIVE Avatars since launch. While developers have been encouraged to incorporate them into their videogames, playable as racing drivers in F1 Race Stars and playing based in Kinect Sports for example, there’s been strict rules about them performing or incurring violent acts. These rules will be broken this week however, with the upcoming launch of Zombies!!!. (Culture, Mobile, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, Zombies!!!)

I always thought the Avatar restrictions were kind of silly, yes they are an evolution of the Nintendo Mii avatars, but since they are outfitted by SO many M rated titles things like more realistic weapons seemed like a given.

Meh, the board game will always be better than some stupid Windows 8 game.
