NXE Avatars need more variety

Neoseeker writes:

"Most Xbox 360 gamers appear to have taken to the NXE, or New Xbox Experience, for those who aren't in the know. Hey, don't laugh. There are gamers out there who just don't know their acronyms.

When Microsoft first launched NXE, I was plenty excited, like many of you. The new look was disorienting but aesthetically pleasing, a sleek improvement over the previous version if only in a visual sense. While some poked fun at the Avatars for looking like more attractive Miis from the Nintendo Wii, most of us were able to look past the vague resemblance, diving right into customising our little digital representations."

One simple setting. Allow users to change the primary color of the clothing. Thats it! It will add alot more possibilities.

NXE Avatars need more "Variety"

haha aren't we clever here at MS?

...they barely need to exist. It was just as easy to see what friends were on before the update by simply looking at your *gasp* friends list.

However, for those obsessed with personalizing their 3D, online personas, yes, more variety would be welcome so as to more easily tell your friends apart at a glance... I guess...

clothing color change would be welcome but other than that i see no real reason...right now avatars don't do much until they are actually implemented on a large scale basis the customization they have now is fine

i have a feeling that when the primetime channel comes in the spring that a few more avatar options may be available

I find it a little cluttered myself (my eyesight is getting sloppy with age)but where do I find the option to change it?

I just hit the big X button and it brings up the old menu of tasks.
You can do all you need to do friends, msgs....
MS should have took all the development money for the new interface and just lowered the price of live

And by "the x button," I know you mean the guide button. Not to be confused with, you know, the actual "x" button on the controller. Just to avoid confusion for 3.1. No flaming here.

Actually, it would be better if they just didn't look so damn stupid.

As long as we don't have to pay for the variety...I'd like some.
