Has it now been confirmed that avatars are going to take the place of gamerpics and that gamerpics will no longer be useable with the new dashboard?
M$ are still putting new gamerpic downloads, etc on XBox Live... but why bother if they are only useable for a few more months at most?

I think there is going to be a choice whether to use the gamerpics or your avatar but I'm not too sure.

I am pretty sure you will be able to choose between a gamerpic or an avatar

I was worried about this as well, all though they haven't confirmed it it seems a wise choice. Otherwise if you have brought a lot of gamerpics off of XBLM you would have wasted your money, and MS would get a lot of angry letters, and I'm sure would be boycotted or forced by cyber gun point to refund people.

That's very true! I wonder if the different regions will be able to get different avatars like they can gamer pics.

Major Nelson confirmed that themes and GPs are going no where and will still be fully functional

I would be glad if you have the choice. I would have only wasted a few MS points on such things, but I'm sure there are a few people that have spent more on those and would be annoyed at not being able to use them.

Not sure if I want an avatar or not. It might distract me from gaming, choosing what my avatar wants to wear that day :p

Ive spent about 80 Points on my Gamerpics and about 200 on themes. Not bothered about themes since I use one that someone on here made. But I love my Vault boy Gamerpicture =/. But as someone already mentioned they will still work.
