[X360] Avatars - Recent Updates: What do you think?
« on: August 27, 2009, 03:15:59 PM »
 :)

Microsofts most recent update was a little surprising.
We can now earn new equipment for our avatars by playing games. This includes lightsabers, basketball, Bioshock helmets, Puma sportswear, etc. I was hoping they would do something with the gamerpoints but only due time will tell.



I dont have any of the equipment yet but this is mine. I glad they added the green xbox shirt, I was using red for the longest time even thought greens my favorite color.

To show your avatar replace the "gamertag" part with yours. (Paste in the address box for picture view)

I think the avatar marketplace is just another way for Microsoft to get more money out of people. It's cool and all but now if you want to do anything with your Xbox it seems to cost you money. ::) I know some stuff is "free" but all the good stuff will be for sale. watch and see.

I see what your saying. I think that its still a good way to do it though. for those people that want those items but don't have those games to unlock them.

My biggest disappointment is the lack of selection and innovation from game companies.
More people should take advantage of game addons and not just to fix bugs.

Also no update for Backward Compatibility. I think they gave up and havent said so.

Yeah it may be good for those who don't have the games and don't mind wasting money on things that should be free IMO but hey I guess in this economy MS is suffering too. LOL. They didn't make 5 billion maybe they only made 4.5 billion. I think the lack of selection right now is because no ones really on board right now cause its so new. I'm sure MS is charging something to the companies for hosting brand type material and giving them some kind of royalty for each DL and I think no one feels its worth the investment right now unless they see some kind of demand. As far as BC goes I think they don't really care unless people nag them on specific titles then maybe they will update the BC. Its all about time and money, if they ain't making money then they really don't want to put the time in it is kind of how it seems they look at things. Uckfing Asturdbays.

Yeah! Well I think the stock for Microsoft has been going down too. They were taking to a sony dude on cnbc asking what are they gonna do cause the price of the ps3 was still too high. Well both are gonna cut the price regardless.

I actually nagged them more than once about the BC. Also games that are listed as working are not working.

Im POed about the PS3 BC too. They do have a lot of working titles but don't sell the system anymore cause of the failure rate and because some of the older titles don't actually work.

Im out of luck when it comes to getting one. Sucks cause I just found the Memory Card Converter for my friend too.

Hardest PS3 accessory to find.  ;D

I haven't been on lately YD. Have you been able to fix your avatar?
