Xbox 360 updating avatar clothes and accessories
One would hope that MS would have resolved this by now.
"At Xbox we're looking for a senior graphics engineer that will work with us to grow the avatar platform across all of our platforms, leveraging the power of Xbox One, the far reach of Windows, and the intimacy of touch on mobile devices." The new engineers will "ensure Avatars are not only gorgeous, but highly performant [sic] across a wide scale of devices" and "work with designers, animators, artists, and other content creators on the implementation of new features".As soon as I make a quick change, save, and exit out of it though - my Avatar shows up with the old features. Doesn't seem to want to change my avatar pic on my TA homepage.Does it usually take awhile or should it update immediately? Xbox Live Status Additional notes: We are seeing indications that we are on the path to recovery with the issue causing problems finding previously-purchased content or purchasing new content and we expect to be back up and running shortly." / There have been 2,013 posts in the last 24 hours.Big or small, can be tall but one issue-it won't let you make it an elder or baby! By the way- love you Microsoft Corporation (creators)! From the job postings, it appears Microsoft is taking a renewed interest in its avatar characters as its moves forward with plans for an unified operating system across all devices.
Windows 10 - due later in 2015 - will be compatible with desktop PCs, netbooks, tablets, phones and to some extent even Xbox One.
But the launch of Xbox One has seen avatars relegated into the background.
They exist on Microsoft's new console solely via a separate app, which lets you snap a photo of them to use as your gamer pic.
We've known for some time that Microsoft has been planning additional clothing and accessories to differentiate (and bizarre-ify) your New Xbox Experience Avatar.
In fact, on Wednesday, MS announced that new Avatar content will be rolled out biweekly for six months.
Today we know that, at least for now, it will be free.
