Xbox.com is back up with a new addition, your avatar. Avatars have now been added to your Xbox Live Gamer Profiles, so not only can you look at the likeness of yourself on your console with the NXE but on Xbox.com as well.
Have got some Cute Avatars to Dress up and Play With !! AHAHAHAHAHAHA What a load of Crap !!!
ahhhh what u so mad u can't play home ahhhhh
Now you can show everyone the kind of virtual dork you are
& when Home comes out everyone that uses it can show people that they have no real life
And when NXE comes out, people like you can show off where the fire started that burned your house down.
I wanna go Homemmmmmeeee....
JUST GOT EVEN BETTER. CAnt wait till 2morrow!!! way better den the other interface.
That looks really cool. You deserve a bubble for having such a cool avater.
So there is no escaping the avatars? I was hoping to avoid seeing these as much as possible. I'm not keen.
Looks Great ! I wonder if Sony are gunna give us some gamercards, it seems like they have all the infrastructure set up, but nothings happening.
been wondering the same thing. and oh yeah i cant till all my friends get this update being the only one and no one to experience it with got boring quickly.
Oh the horror..i'll never turn on my 360 again :O
Can you change the way your avatar's pose? Would be weird if everyone's avatar was standing like that >_>
..Here's my handle, here's my spout... Yeah they need to be able to change the pose.
Lol...yeah you can't, you can change their position on your gamertag picture though. I made mine with a side profile (it's in my N4G profile)
Seriously if you think this is original, I guess your a moron.
why would u go to ps3 over something like this, who cares if u have to have an avatar the xbox games are still freaking good
These avatars are shameful. The new dashboard is a welcome change but these things are just a blatant rip-off of Mii's, just like Home is of Second Life. Whats next the Mii60 plaza? Or SecondHome apartments?
they do look GAY..but i am a gamer and that doesnt influence my gaming.
Games - great. NXE - slick. Mii Too's - really really gay. I really hope there is a way to not have these on your gamer card, as I personally think they look embarressing... and this is giant step backwards. I know some of you kids will like this tat, but come on, we should be able to not have this, surely?? Its like they've given me a sweetie, but filled it with something sour... :)
im guessing mine isnt updated because i havnt bothered to download NXE yet?
Perhaps the more mature gamer doesnt like the 'avatar' thing whereas the younger ones do like the idea? Perhaps some feedback on this ^^^^ so we can work out where everyone sits - just an idea!
Am thinking the exact same thing.
Well can tell you that most of my friends are around 30ish and they like the avatars. No one is really jumping up and down with joy over them. They are just kind of a neat idea
I'm a 30 something gamer too and my gripe is not the cute aspect of the new avatars, its the taking another console's idea without any innovation. Lets face it, all companies borrow from one another but MS isnt even trying to cover it up. Sony is barely trying for that matter. I think if you are going to "steal or imitate" an idea at least make it better than the source material. (For the record I own and like all 3 systems) These new avatars and the rumored motion controller MS is doing is just coming off as copying the competition and not besting them.
They're here, they're queer, get used to it.
I just find it funny how they're forcing us to create one. Looks like all my themes are going to look like crap as well. I really hope the the new interface wins me over in this update....I really do. I'm not feeling the avatars because they're not serving any purpose for me at all. Besides looking at them and saying "whoa that looks cool!", what the hell are they here for?
