Microsoft’s new Xbox Live Avatars are heading to Windows 10 for PC gamers to pick a diverse character
not for me but im also not the audience. always have to remind myself how much has changed in 20 years and how much would be blowing my mind if i went back 20. gotta keep the kiddos engaged. thats microsoft's metric these days..
I mean, they have been doing avatars since Xbox 360. But they mostly went away now and I wasn't aware anybody cared haha
I wish Microsoft wouldn't waste their time and resources with this crap.
Cool? I don't know in my opinion
Well interesting I suppose. but it's good nevertheless.
I like the new models
Seems like a waste of time lol. I can’t imagine any pc gamers using this.
would be cool if they integrated it more into the OS and more features like watching movies & tv and Netflix w/ a group of people and you could see their avatars like before, or a game like 1 VS 100 which was awesome. Avatars have alot of potential, MS just needs to use it right.
Yeah, cause what everyone wants is to see avatars pop in on the screen while they are watching movies. 🙄 But it is cool.
lol well not the whole movie, but you could toggle the theatre on and off.
There were a few cool games that incorporated them into gameplay but they were largely useless. If I could go into a game with my avatar wearing gears armor that I got from unlocking an achievement? Sounds cool. That’s not what these things are though lol. It’s just a little extra aesthetic. I can see how it would appeal to the identity politics crowd. Create your own unique, diverse individual to go with your fragile, collective mob mindset. Remember “home” on PlayStation? Lmao.. they need more distractions like these so developers get a break.
These were mostly used by the XNA community back on 360. It's a shame MS shut that down, but maybe these can be as easily implemented for games that make it to [email protected]
Well, they could be used in games like golf, cart or cinematic. It is up to MS to promote them.
Awesome, Already checking it out on the Xbox through the preview program and they look awesome 🤟🏻🤘 27995;
These new avatars are horrible IMO. Any male you try to make comes out looking extremely feminine. No matter what combos I chose there is no way to make an actual man.
