    New Gamercards with avatars?
    Will these replace gamerpics or go alongside them?

    Now you'll be able to pay money for new clothes for your avatar. Aren't you excited about that? You know you should be, because it's Microsoft.

    In other news, I just farted in my edit bay, and the other editor comes in in less than 15 minutes.

    So they are copying all of the Wii features that I don't use and could care less about?

    Did he say that or the original Banjo (which is what I thought he said) cause that'd be interesting.

    Still thus far it seems like Miis, the Eye-Toy, crappy tv game shows?! Man Mircosoft, so far the only thing I've seen that I really care about in RE5 (which will also be on PS3).

    Looks like I'm sticking with Japan again this year and ignoring the 360 :(

    Apparently the press conference is going over very poorly with the attending audience.

    I don't like the dashboard redesign. Better be a way to use the classic one. I love my G1 Decepticons background. I paid money for it, better be able to use it still.

    I'll be pissed if my downloaded themes and gamerpics become completely unusable.

    What the hell Microsoft?

    Yeah, there's the obligitory smattering of applause here and there, but it's been pretty dead overall.

    Oh yeah, and this:

    Cause the reason people bought a 360 is to dance with their mom. :p

    There is no way they'd have the thick face to actually shut off purchased MS Points content like gamerpics. No way.

    (I hope)

    *edit*

    Though, I could see it happening -with- a full MS Points refund applied. Who knows, though.

    No... that's EyeToy...

    hmmm... Sony's Trophy achievements... At the Movies... does it seem like the big two are just ripping off each other's ideas now?
