Video detailing the creation of the avatar system and its expandability in the future...
Would the 360 fans have missed out on Avatars? This is how competition raises the bar for 360 owners.
rip off !!! Its exactly like the Mii..lmao.. Nintendo better call them out..
Stop HATING cuz the 360 will have Avaters WAY before you guys can even think about having HOME. And so what if they got the idea from Nintendo...it won't make us enjoy them anyless! LOL And before you start throwing rocks at MS look at Sony themselves. Copying MS, idea for idea on there LIVE system. Trophies??? Hmm, I wonder where I seen that before??
You do know avatars already exist in PSN since launch right? in PSN instead of gamerpics they are called avatars so MS copied Nintendo and Sony.
RIGHT.....!!! LOL You keep telling yourself that buddy.
Why haven't they banned you from the gamer zone? Your posts are only backed from 360 "supporters" too silent to spread the "love" for the 360 period. As for avatars, it's not a copy, it's a cut & paste. Home after avatars? Gladly taken, considering Home will have much more advanced features than some silly 2 inch 3D bobbling turd.
LOL xhairs9, talking about fanboys, go and see a mirror
Cant compete with HOME.
I really hate all the LIES this company spreads along with their BABOONS who help them spread it....AHAHAHAHHAHHA
Where that dumb looking guy said: "WHERE ELSE CAN YOU FIND SOMETHING LIKE AVATARS..." Holy shiat, they blatantly ripped off Nintendo and tried to copy the HOME concept and they had the guts to ask WHERE ELSE. I couldnt stop laughing! It looked so frikkin stupid, are those baboons really thinking they captured the hearts of people and the 360 community? ROFL.
there it is. Now u can see with your own eyes. I expect only blinded, bias comments of people in denial. Forced to like it & find a silver lining. heres my comment: G A Y!
You know even though its basically a rip off I really wanna get my hands on it and see how in depth you can go with the customization I love things that let you have tons and tons of things to mess with and if what they say in the video is true they could end up have 100's upon 100's of outfits and options available. They should do that from the start seeing as there are so many people on xbox live if it wasn't deep enough there would be far to many look alikes which is very annoying. I do agree Home is the thing to beat as it seems to be far more integrated and detailed but we don't know when we will be getting our hands on that.
HOME is a total Ripoff of Second Life except it's on consoles. Not that I hate. Sony didn't invent "3-D virtual World with Living Environment with customizations" that it is is nothing new here... Every time I hear this Avatar copy stuff, it's pointless when you look at what's been copied or imitated.
I'm pretty sure Neopets takes the cake from Avatars if you put it that way.
Home did NOT copy second life... Theres enough innovative features in Home to be able to consider it a copy... You saying Home is a copy of second life because they are social worlds is like saying Halo is a copy of Doom because they are both FPS... stfu gtfo plz roflmaoamgwtfpwnedrofflecakesb bq
gametimeuk: and xbox 360 avatar are exactly like mii's?, there isn't any innovation or new feautures??
this is what the xbots have become? to the install base, please form a line in a orderly fashion. please no pushing! There's plenty of playststion3 on the premesis! LOL! its a fire sale of hardcore gamers!
I personally like the idea of the avatars and strongly believe that when the new dashboard is released with games like 1v100, people will better appreciate the avatars. I am sure that games like fable 2 and GeOW2 will have custom outfits that you can only unlock when you complete the game or get a certain achievement.Even a spartan outfit for Halo wars would be cool.
i think they don't realistic enough
nice to see MS pushing their tech. it's not that far behind HOME if you can ignore the lower resolution, simpler characters, lack of any meaningful locations and the short development time... what was it, a week?
They look like they were created the last minute to compete with SONY and Nintendo and release them sooner than Home..... oh wait
What last minute ? It took sony nearly 2 years to add in game xmb. It took less than a year for MS to completely redesign the Dashboard. Thats why sony will always be behind MS. Sony does not have the software talent thats needed to make everything work and work right away not 2 years from launch.
lol I'm talking about those Mii rip-offs that look like they were made in a week. Yeah MS does things fast alright...
@8.1 Right...redesigning the dashboard is like moving furniture around. Adding in-game XMB is like building an addition to your house. Or in other words, tell an interior decorator to build you a deck and see how it works out. @8.2 So fast it breaks 33% of the time...
I think microsoft are trying to cover all their bases. Theyve got the hardcore crowd sorted with games like Gears2,Red alert3 etc Nintendo - and Sony to a lesser extent - are still percieved as more family friendly thus they are tapping into the mainstream crowd to boost sales. Titles like Banjo3 and Viva Pinata are slightly appealing to the masses but stick a cute avatar on a dashboard and people will love it.
They just should have come up with something better. The avatars are a really lame why of covering the casual gamer. I was really hoping those were just a rumors, but as we all know, they weren't. I like that Microsoft is trying to cover all their bases, I just wish they'd do it better.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA seriously? Like this isnt a joke? They are really gonna go through with this.. Just like the "Miis", There really isnt a point.. Its just there.. At least in Home you make your "Person" and you can interact, play games, watch videos, go to Video Game rooms, Someones Space or a Apartment to see their content (pics/Movies/Music).. Home actually has a function.. Its not just some thing you create that just stands there... Also I wouldnt be surprised, with the announcement of Nike.. That eventually Home could turn into a virtual Mall.. 360 is a joke, and this video shows why they are running scared.. Cause that was just pathetic
You can also watch movies together on 360 and chat in groups of up to 8. One can also say that HOME is a rip-off of some Second Life ideas with homes and being able to buy furniture and what-not. So don't even start on the ripping-off sh!t
What are you gay? No offense but seriously.. Just what I want to do.. Is watch a sub dvd quality movie streaming from netflix.. While im on the mic with 8 guys.. Ya that sounds awesome.. Sorry bro Ill stick to watching movies with my GF (See avatar).. Everyone is ripping everyone off.. Your "avatars" are "Miis" soo you copied nintendo.. Your an idiot and prolly a [email protected], Have fun watching movies with your BFs you H0M0.. Also PS3 can Video chat with up to 6 people.. Im pretty sure you cant even do 3 people.. IDIOT
He must be [email protected] He is finding a way to defend those avatars and 360
Fanboys on N4G just reached a new low. Say hello to homophobia. Next up, racial slurs!
Hair = 500 Microsoft Points Toe Nails = 200 Microsoft Points Hat = 400 Microsoft Points
OMG if they did that there would be soooo much hate mail... i wouldn't put it past them though.
LevDog is preaching in the Open Zone... I think he said it best.. Do you think MS will make you pay for the extra clothes and stuff?
No,, they wouldnt do that,,hahaha
Thing about Avatars is that MS can release more and more customization options as time goes on. With Wii, you get the same stupid choices. Furthermore, you can customize clothing styles and they'll be in HD :) Miis aren't an original Nintendo idea, either.
The lag will be really bad, and the quality is going to suck also. streaming movies just doesn't work well.
Apple Iphone = Samsung, HTC, LG, Blackberry Touchscreen phones Netflix Online DVD Renting = Blockbuster Online DVD Renting Xbox Online Movie Rentals = Playstation Online Movie Rentals Microsoft Live = PSN-Sign On Intergration Nintendo Mii's = Xbox Avatars Playstation Home = The Sims Online Whatever innovative idea or concept a company has, others will follow to make that idea better (or slightly different). So why is everybody have their panties in a bunch stating that "This company copied that company". That's how innovation works. For example MS Live service. MS points can be used for buying content from Xbox Live or Zune market place. I can read messages sent from Xbox Live while on Zune marketplace. That's one of the features I like about Live. Now, do I call Sony a "copycat"?! No!! I'm glad they have a intergraded service like Live. That's how business & technology works. So all of you need to just give it up with this "Copycat" finger pointing.
hey wait a sec this isnt Home...your a PHONY http://www.youtube.com/watc...
i hope they took time to make this perfect instead of wanting to be the first out the gate like they did with there console
i cant wait for the new look. yes its just like the Mii's crap. but who cares, xbox is gaming and we have the ultimate online experince. soon you ps3 ladies will rip it off too. compition hurts baby.
Xiitards are speaking. Home is way cooler than avatars. Xbox360 is suppose to be about hardcore stuff not Nintendo Mii bull. M$ doesn't love its gamers at all. GOW2 will probably help a bit but common even us PS3 guys don't want to chat with dudes watching Netflix movies we do that at the cinema with our girls by our side. Plusyou have to pay to be a netflix member or already be to access their crapy line up of movies plus it aint worth renting dvds these days when the blu-ray versions look better and go for the same membership price @ $16 for three out at a time.
hahah what in the geigh
