    anyone else get the update? Not sure if I got beta or it was released early. I turned it on this afternoon and tahdah, i got the update.

    The avatar shop needs more selections, but that will come. I hope they do a retro/geek were type shop with 80s tees of TF, GI Joe, Ghostbusters, etc. I'd buy them in a heartbeat!

    Did you sign up for the beta? That would explain it, though kinda late since it hits tomorrow.

    Personally, can't wait to get some avatar stuff. Got 240 throw-away points to blow.

    I did sign up for beta, but never got a notice about being picked. I can't wait to unlock the locked stuff.

    Right now there is some generic stuff, halo shirts (no halo suit that I can find), Halo OSD stuff, and Monkey Island stuff. May get the "I found the treasure of Mele Island and all I got was this lousy shirt" t shirt.

    It was definitely fun to see the avatar play with the props. Any idea on unlockable content from games?

    The On Demand service is what i'm looking forward to the most I just have to be even more careful with my purchases as if its shite its not as if I can take it back or trade it.

    'Splosion Man has items for the Marketplace unlockable through the game, though I don't think it's been announced what it is.

    Major Nelson said that the update has been released and over the next few hours should start rolling to the XBox's when you switch on or when you next sign into Live.

    However I can't confirm by switching on my Xbox as I was in the beta and already got the update.

    Actually, I imagine that even those of us with the preview will still get an update as the version will most likely be different than the version we had for the preview.

    Alot of good looking costumes in the marketplace, I gotta say.

    An ODST suit, a clone trooper and Obi-Wan uniform, a COG and Big Daddy suit. All look awesome.

    used my points to pick up a guitar and a Gears skullcap.

    Looks like the new avatar stuff is going over well.

    Dirge is wearing a COG helmet, Gentleman Ghost is wearing a Big Daddy helmet, Eric is a stormtrooper and I'm a steampunk guitarist.

    And the Allards duly did flow in to the coffers of the gentleman Microsoft while his pitiful subjects danced in the streets over the pitiful morsels given them.
