Xbox Avatars Get Summer Threads


Continuing the roll out of season items, Microsoft has unlocked several more summer-themed clothing options for Xbox 360 avatars.

At last, male avatars finally have some swim trunks and a "white vest" (seen left) to go along with their flippy floppies. You'll be the envy of everyone in 1 vs. 100, or you would be, if that pesky desk wasn't blocking your lower half. Still, if you happen to be The One...

As with past clothing updates, you simply need to sign into Xbox Live to obtain the free additions. Just remember that the time of charity is soon coming to an end, as Microsoft is preparing to roll out a virtual marketplace to sell premium-priced avatar items.

    Are they still planning to do the whole “achievement-unlockable” avatar clothing, or was that just a rumor?

    Also, I propose that any player seen with “premium” avatar clothing be shunned or ridiculed.

      Hadn't heard about the achievement unlock clothing, but that's actually not a terrible idea. There are far too few games where getting the achievements nets you the grand sum of nothing.

      Yeah, games will start to implement unlockable items later this year, alongside the new store.
