    "By now you should have downloaded the Next Xbox Experience and probably created a bland looking avatar. Just for fun I tried making Link and Cloud as avatars, but both of them look like hipsters instead of heroes. The avatar system is flexible, but is intentionally gimped. Why? Microsoft already has plans to release avatar theme packs.

    Microsoft and third party publishers are going to cash in further by packaging avatar parts with NXE custom themes. From Software is testing this strategy by selling four Ninja Blade wallpapers and five ninja avatar parts into a premium bundle for 250 Microsoft Points ($3.12). Previously Xbox themes were priced at 150 Microsoft Points ($1.87), but those old themes don’t mesh with the revised dashboard well."

    Can you use NXE without a avatar?

    When you update and all that, then sign in, it automatically throws you into a Avatar creator.

    Who cares?
    But you can shut it off, and just ignore it's repeated attempts to make you make an avatar [​IMG].

    It's fun to make a avatar thought, so it doesn't matter.
    Just saying: If you bought those old XBL themes before the NXE, they look bad on NXE.

    The night time or w/e theme is nice though. xD
    And that Tokyo theme looks nice too (OP ^)

    Yep, and paying $3.12 for what is essentially useless is nice too.
