Xbox 360 Avatars Get $4 NFL Jerseys

30
In an expansion bound to please fanatical football fans, a selection of virtual NFL jerseys are now available for Xbox 360 Avatars.

The offerings encompass all thirty-two teams of the National Football League, with each jersey selling for 320 Microsoft Points ($4).

In other words, expect to see the men and women of Xbox Live endorsing their favorite teams, especially as Avatars become more and more common in-game. Remember when you thought you were safe from sports by playing Uno?

    $4? That's seriously fucking insane for a single piece of clothing.

          Official NFL Jerseys are like $80, and there are plenty of people who buy those.

          Sure not that many people will end up buying these relative to the total Xbox LIVE population, but they'll probably still make plenty of money off all those Madden-only 360 gamers who absolutely worship "their" team.

            I thought they were more like $200+?

            Never bought any myself.

              Official NHL Jerseys run from $270-350+ - I can only imagine that NFL ones are the same if not more expensive.

              I think MLS jerseys are the only 'official' jerseys you can get for under $100 these days.

              Yeah my bad. I was looking at the "replica" Jerseys, not the "authentic" ones.

              Point still stands though...someone who's dropping that kind of money on a single shirt would have little problem spending $4 on a virtual jersey for their avatar.

      Seriously. $4 should get you the entire pack of jerseys.

      I was thinking the same thing. I can get a REAL T-Shirt for $4 (not NFL, but still).
      I guess MS gotta pay the NFL for the license though.

      A 12 oz. bottle of water will last you a few hours and cost $1.50. This virtual jersey is forever! It's only $4! $4 won't feed a starving child in Africa more than a week or two! Personally I think the price is a steal! A STEAL!
