Rare: Games to give out Avatar clothing "like Achievements"

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.

Foxgod3545d ago

Dont you have to pay for items in Home ?

InMyOpinion3545d ago

They already copied achievements so why not copy this idea as well?

GrieverSoul3545d ago

Sony said they were doing this later on but I guess Microsoft got ahead and put ´´the product on the streets first``!

InMyOpinion3545d ago

Sony say the darndest things. Where's the trophy room?

LeShin3545d ago

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

Foxgod3545d ago

What does an achievement have to do with a mii ?
Nintendo doesnt even have achievements.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3545d ago

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.

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 :)

@ Graphics Whore, I am sure Sony will do this as well.
