I am totally unconvinced by the Xbox 360 avatars coming in the NXE however I have it under good authority that they are actually quite cool.
Either way I guess we are going to have to wait for the NXE to be officially released to see what all the fuss is about. However not all of us have had to wait, can anyone recognise the friendly chap on my right here?
Please give a warm welcome to our local Xbox MVP Craig Nicholson, having met Craig a few times in real life I would have to say that this is a decent likeness.
So how did I get that image without Craig’s permission or knowledge? Well it seems like these avatars are not going to be confined to the Xbox 360 and will be available for anyone to view by simply typing in the correct URL.
While I am not sure how useful this is I guess it’s nicer than just putting a gamertag on your website or blog and if it’s available live on the net you could theoretically use it anywhere, I am sure some clever person out there somewhere is already cooking up a use for these little guys.
So who else can you find who has used the NXE yet? Other than the famous Major Nelson that is who I have already found.
And now that you know we can see you are you going to fake your avatar to look like Angelina Jolieâ€¦ I know I will, but then again I do look just like her alreadyâ€¦ or is it Brad Pitt?

You are forgiven. Pretty cool tho. Will change the way forums and forum avatars work.
I like it.

Avatars are cool. Though the options are limited for now. I am sure when it goes live, more items will be added.
Scene it: BOS, though it says it uses avatars, it doesnt seem to use my avatar…It seems to only use generic avatars. But that might change in the released version with an update.

I just want a I killed raam on insane t-shirt.
they need to tie the clothing to achievements – would be so cool to have your Saint row 2 chain, with a gears lancer over your shoulders and etc etc etc.

Well, with micro transactions…with MS love, i am sure that wil happen. So instead of releasing gamer pics, they release a t-shirt. Or if you complete GoW2 on insane…you get a t-shirt…
