When it launched in 2005, the Xbox 360 was, certain issues aside, a successful product. But it was also drab. Lifeless. Until, in 2008, along came the avatars.
The addition of the Rare-designed Avatars in the New Xbox Experience hasn’t amounted to much beyond an increasingly expanding virtual wardrobe. But Microsoft may have grander plans for the little guys.
For all their promise, the 360’s avatars look a little… drab. This isn’t 1998, Microsoft, nor the set of Frasier. Thankfully, Capcom are on the case, and with Crecente in mind will be releasing pirate costumes.
