That was actually cool.Hope we see more avatar implementation in future titles.

Alcon Caper3278d ago

This is so funny. And it looks well done too!

StanLatMarveldotCom3278d ago

It's pretty freaking cool but it's still hilarious and awkward for some reason.

Alcon Caper3278d ago

We'll be able to rock out with our avatars in real time with Natal!

Omg, this is gonna be awesome.

Home was a good rough concept, but I guarantee developers will work with MS more to just simply allow avatar models to be loaded in a game, versus making an entire set that does nothing interesting.

This is a great idea. You don't need a virtual world to walk around, just one relative to gaming. XBL is already social so the world doesn't have to work as 1 part socializer and 1 part gaming.

These types of non-story related type games are perfect for Avatars.

That actually looks really good. Now we just need avatar support in Halo 3: ODST.

Everytime Nelson M posts hate, give him negative bubbles. TIA!

Nelson, this isn't an anti-PS3 article. You will not get the bubbles you oh-so-desire here. Since it's obvious you never play your PS3 since you're always on N4G (I've seen you make a post at least once every hour. Do you SLEEP???), you should honestly get a life.

Enjoy your lifeless HOME avatar.

Ninji3278d ago

You mean like those lifeless avatars that sit next to your ads and do nothing but look around & wave at you?

Salvadore3279d ago

Dude, this looks sweet!!!

Kushan3278d ago (Edited 3278d ago )

I wonder if you'll be able to keep your customisations outside of the game?

Also, I have to give it to Harmonix, if you look at Rock band, all of the characters on stage actually sync up with the music. If you miss a note, so do they. That doesn't happen in guitar hero, where all the animation seems to be pre-defined. Hopefully now that they're using Avatars in GH, Neversoft will fix it.
