I want to buy a gamer picture but is there much point seeing as avatar's are coming soon?

And does anyone know when this update is coming out?

The update comes out sometime in either October or November... And no one really knows if avatars will REPLACE gamer pictures.

Well most people know that gamerpics are here to stay, Major Nelson confirmed this months ago

i remember reading that you could be represented by your avatar OR a gamer pic...only cool thing with the avatar i've seen is that it will actually be in some games....way too wii-esque for me though.

you HAVE to have a gamer pic. both the public and friends gamerpic will still be there. the gamerpics are still required for the few hundered games that require them and don't support avatars.

When you make your avatar you can replace your gamerpic with a picture or your avatar or you can go into your profile settings and place gamerpics that you've bought/downloaded.

Additionally any gamerpic you have can be used as an image on your avatars t-shirt.

Very unlikely they are still programming it, at PAX they confirmed they had not finished it, and the build they showed off was far from finished iirc

True, I expect it will hit us in around December. Same as last years winter update. :)

Your talking about the new 360's after the update is released will ship with the new xbox experience there is no special new SKUs for this update, it is the same thing that happens with every update, for example if you go buy a new 360 it has the current 360 dash not the one from launch.

Yeah I like how you can get them in social matches. That makes it so much easier to boost :D

god i hope not. i do not want to wait till winter for a fall update.

personally i want it by the end of october at the latest.

last year was BS, oh it's the fall update but wait until christmas. thats not fall anymore. even in florida thats still considered winter (or just a slightly colder summer but still)

When did this happen?!?!?! I haven't touched halo in forever, now I might actually be able to get 1k in it:woop:.

Back on topic, I'm glad to have learned that gamerpics will not be gone. Although, I'm still not really looking forward to the new dashboard, I like mine how it is, plain and unexciting...:p
