Xbox Avatars getting Gears of War armour

360 News | Finally a chance to look like Marcus Fenix.
Epic Games has announced from this year’s Comic-Con, that Xbox Live Avatars will be getting Gears of War armour add-ons available for download.

Coming in two distinct styles – the traditional COG solider armour or a locust themed helmet/vest combination, Epic’s Cliff Bleszinsky said they would be added upon the next dashboard update which is said to be hitting soon.

For now, there was no mention of cost, but it’s almost certain there will be Microsoft Points attached to the new costumes which can be viewed below.

They don't look like Fenix? Nice to see some cool game related stuff for avatars though.

Hrm. I'd prefer this sort of thing tied to the game itself. Like, complete Gears 3 on easy to get the regular armour, medium for Dom's armour, hard for Fenix.

Give me something good to do with my avatar, and then we'll talk about some premium threads, k Microsoft?

If this were for a Mii however...

I think they look a little too comical for me. i guess there is only so much you can do with an animated little avatar.

I just don't understand how people can justify paying for virtual clothing!? I don't care how good it looks.....it's virtual clothing.
