Once xbox.com comes back, we'll be able to preview and buy avatar items in a browser instead of having to log into the editor on the 360. :)

Each to their own. Where others don't care for things like avatar items, others do. Does it bother you?

I didn't realise the beta testers had got their avatar items back until reading this thread, so thanks for reminding me to check! :p

I don't see what the negativity is all about with paying to customise avatars, it's hardly expensive. I need to pick up the microphone prop and then my guy's sorted for the next couple years, I can't see anything more awesome than the punk rock outfit coming out haha.

Yes i have really strong views when it comes to things like this, I hate people trying to sell me something i know is a complete waste of money and tbh it is just a legitimate con ... i also hate seeing others being pulled in to things like this also. It could be because i have been conned by people in the past and am very aware of them now adays whether it comes to things like this or a company saying your going to get something for some money and you dont get it but its legal cos of some loop hole.

So yes it does bother me ALOT .. i would like to see people that have not realised exactly how much they have spent on a pair of glasses or a t-shirt they will never wear lol sit down count it all up and think about how much games they could of bought instead ....

I will never be pulled in to things like this and thats coming from someone that loves to spend money and has a big problem of when they get cash they just have to spend it .. so thats saying something ;)

i only buy stuff with left over points it seems i always have some floating around that i can't do anything else with.

the editing our avatars on the web now though sounds pretty cool to me though navigating it on the 360 is mildly annoying

According to Major Nelson you can preview them before buying on the site.

One arcade game, at most two? Don't let money rule your life mate, if we're going with that line of reasoning you could say why spend your money on games at all- if you like the avatar clothes enough to buy them then it's worth the money to you, if you like a game enough to buy it then it's worth the money to you.

It costs like 15 minimum to go out to a pub, and that only lasts a night. Might as well give all our money to charity and the less fortunate instead, no?

Add up all them left over points you had to any new points you buy, i bet you would of been able to get a few games lol

Or go to a computer and use a competent browser. Cant speak for the PS3 but the Wii browser is a complete waste of existence.
