Cool, didn't really see much. Did I miss something. Cause I didnt catch anything on that page regarding achievements. How does it count towards something? 

#3 Posted by Major (506 posts) -

Where do you see that gamerscore counts towards something?

#4 Posted by napster (52 posts) -

Not in the vid but i heard that gamerscore unlocks clothes and stuff for your avatar or something to that nature. Lol and theres a big post already on this.

It counts to more clothes for avatars? Lol.

Nothing really interesting happens in that video. He goes to settings, tries to change the theme then gets an error message. Woot.

i want to congratulate that guy on installing an update with faulty graphics, unfinished fonts, and not being able to play any more games on it

For having 70,000 gamerscore do I get an HEV suit for my avatar? Along with a styled beard, glasses, and a crowbar?

#13 Posted by Aaron_G (1603 posts) -

To blurry to see much.

#14 Posted by MiamiRedHawks (914 posts) -

I think it looks worse than the current set up...

#15 Posted by FaintDeftone (81 posts) -

Yeah, it seems like the dude just ruined his 360 by installing this unfinished dashboard update.

#16 Posted by brukaoru (5079 posts) -

RIP old dashboard.

What the fuck? Does anyone else here see this? How random, look how someone else replied to my post, then look at how this guy replied to my post. Chill the fuck out you fanboy, I think thats enough.. PS I have been getting virtual couches since 07. :) Beta baby lol.

But am I alone or is this guy always attacking me and causing fanboy fights, seriously sad.

Your original reply came off as fanboyish to me, maybe it wasn't meant to be but I think it could be taken as a fanboy remark.

So getting the thread back on track.... Gordon Freeman avatars. Go.

That's a little pointless IMO, but at least they thought of something to do with the GS. I would prefer converting them into MS points.

Well I was replying to "Where do you see that gamerscore counts towards something?", and I even left an lol, not being a fanboy here... Even Cortana realized it was just a joke. Oh but im sure if someone else (ie doesn't own PS3) had posted the same thing it would be fine. I just think that guy is way too big of a fanboy, I see him in a bunch of threads always causing shit, and its annoying.

That'd be cool I guess... I don't care about avy's really, again still just want to use the features.

I really hate the look of this new dashboard.

why...? It looks shiny and easier to use, like less buttons to press to check friends and form parties, etc.

I think the opposite, I love the multi coloured blades of the current dashboard.I think the check friends and forming parties is easy enough as it is.And besides, the avatar idea sucks my balls.I did'nt buy a Wii, I bought a 360.

I kinda like it.

Some people don't like it because its so plane and bland I guess.

I like it, it's sexy....well as sexy as a dashboard can be without being covered with boobs.

The moment they start doing microtransactions for free sets of Halo underpants for your avators though, is the minute I'll stop liking it.

No they won't be doing that, they'll make a certain achievement unlock halo underpants, not you paying for halo underpants. Just like Home...

Awesome! i can't wait for the new update! i don't understand why the avatars get so much hate i think its a great idea, i love my Mii's but i wish they had more customization choices which this gives us plus home is coming.. i love the sim/avatar type stuff

I just hope there is no master chief helmet or armor because 9/10 people will use it.

I think people 'hate' it because its ripping off a great idea, have you seen them in motion? Not that hot IMO... Like when Home showed its avatars more then a year ago, most people weren;t saying its a great idea, they were saying its a Mii rip off (which makes no sense), and now this comes out and the press is all over it.. :\

Home offers so much customizations to the avatar you would not imagine. Hundreds of times more then Mii's and 360 avatars (im in the beta) its pretty deep. I just dont like companies ripping off ideas and claiming you cant do this anywhere else but here. v_v

So freaking pointless to hack your console. I'll just wait for the update.
