Our Xbox Avatars

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in XBOX 360 | Posted on 20-11-2008

The new Xbox Experience launched yesterday.  I got up early in the morning to update the system and play before walking to work.  Overall I like the new experience, it definitely has a more social appeal to it and things are more discoverable.   

Last night, Ellen and I sat down to make our avatars.  This turned out to be tougher than expected because, honestly, there weren’t enough basic options.  For example, there was only one page of noses and only a few mouths.  Ellen and I went through every option on the menus and this is the best we could come up with for me.  My picture is at the top of this blog, so I’ll let you be the judge as to how close we were able to get.

We  then started working on Ellen’s and I think we were able to get a better resemblance with her.  Here is hers.

If you are curious as how to get your full body avatar here is the secret.  You go to this link:

By the way, my Xbox handle is “Z0rka” (that is a zero not an oh) and Ellen’s is “Sonata109”.  Friend up with us if you like.
