Rare has told VG247 that games will soon give players items of clothing and accessories for their 360 Avatars in the same way they hand out Gamer Points.
Sony should do this. Perfectly ties into home.
Dont you have to pay for items in Home ?
They already copied achievements so why not copy this idea as well?
Sony said they were doing this later on but I guess Microsoft got ahead and put ´´the product on the streets first``!
Sony say the darndest things. Where's the trophy room?
LOL you gotta be kidding me lol I can't believe that comment about "copying achievements" came out of you! Nintendo Mii's say "Hi" lol
What does an achievement have to do with a mii ? Nintendo doesnt even have achievements.
Mii's arn't achievements, how did you come up with that?
Actualy Sony has already implemented this to Home, it has been there from the day Home launched. Theres just not many games that support this, not to mention the only game at the momemnt to support this was only available in japanese store so I dont blame any1 from missing it. But Namco museum arcade(Beta) awarded players with clothing, accessories and items for home. Betas and demos dont unlock trophies but the game had its own system (that probably will directly relate to trophies) So nope, sony can't copy something that they have already implemented. source: http://www.joystiq.com/2008... Not to mention that they have talked about trophy rewards way back last year.
Yeah sony already copied miis and achievements. So why not this too. This was actually announced by MS months ago. They had sent out tools for devs to use to tie achievements and avatars together. I'm hoping that the next star wars games lets you unlock vaders outfit
I have to say I am quite surprised at how this has been handled so far. I was sure they'd start charging for this kind of thing almost immediately. I guess we can enjoy the spoils for now. They probably will at some point, but until then stuff like this is pretty awesome.
resident evil 5 and street fighter will have home launching and the ability to win outfits for your avatar :)
this will be cool
I want a werehog costume (from Sonic Unleashed) now :(
.....hope that lots of games support this. @ Graphics Whore, I am sure Sony will do this as well.
cool idea but i dont like the avaters even thought i still created one ;P you just have to ;)
Thats a great idea, items are always better than numbers Master Chief and Gears armor FTW
Gears armor would be EPIC!
Cool, i was worried we would have to buy for it, micro transactions suck. Thankfully they are a little extra that come with the game. They also give the player and extra drive to perform those hard achievements.
Definitely a good idea, but I can't really see many games coming out where an avatar is really important. Even games like Uno they just live up to their name and sit in the corner. Scene It?! is the same, they just jump around a bit. I'd like to see more games where your Avatar really is the main character that you control. Stupid platform games, Karting games and the like.
Is it only for games that incorporate the avatars? If so, why not have it in games that don't have the avatars as well?
I've been hoping for this since the inception of NXE. I think I've mentioned it in some comments as well. Now give me the gimp mask!
That's nice... Now give me possibility of getting rid of my avatar...
Sony does it with Home, is it still stupid now? Give me a break.
Why not let developers included XBL prizes for achievements?
Great idea, i want clothes from FIFA like Real madrid jersey
What about SF4 costumes...I would love my avatar to look like Akuma.
i wish we could get some cooler stuff, like helmets and armor. it would be pretty cool to be able to dress the avatar to look like a COG soldier.
If you offer to give me Serious Sam's shirt with the grinning bomb on it, once completing SS3 on 360 (when it comes out), then we have a deal.
What the hell happened to Sony this generation ? They are sleeping at the wheel.
Some games unlock free clothes to use on your avatar. Sony has already implemented this. We even get arcade machines to put in our home space.
I've not had that happen to me yet, but I remember it was an important part of the concept of Home.
The only game supporting this was available in japanese store, and was still in beta. But still managed to get myself a digdug cap, Pacman t-shirst and digdug enemy statue and those arcade machines. Resident evil and Street fighter seem to also support this feature.
