The video above shows off the massive number of customisations available with the upcoming Xbox 360 Avatars. Height, weight, clothing, accessories, the list goes on. Graphically the avatars look amazing and there’s just no contest between the Xbox 360’s Avatars and Nintendo’s Mii characters, the Avatars win hands down, and that’s before we’ve even gotten hands-on.
I was impressed when the hat was added on top of the rock star hair, the hat reacted normally, covering the hair rather than un-naturally poking through the hat. The emotions are a nice touch, however the burping is really a pretty lame 2 second, use once gag. Let’s hope the emotions carry though into Avatar-enabled games.
Overall Avatars look impressive and make up only part of a major overhaul of the Xbox 360 UI, an update that can’t come soon enough.
