    Who is actually going to make an avatar when the new dashboard interface is released? A friend of mine told me that it is optional to use. If the info is true, who is going to use it and make an avatar?

    I might, but I don't really find it useful outside of a few trivia games MS is going to post on Live.

    I'll def be using the new avatar scheme. It looks nice and you know it'll be cool to make an avatar like myself.

    I might use it, hopefully you can customize them more than you can a Mii.

    One question that's been getting on me is: will the avatar take up space on the hardrive? If you want to fully customize it, will that take up more space?

    Out of curiosity, I'm definitely going to check it out...whether I will utilize it, remains to be seen. :D

    I'll be making one if they have my hairstyle (e.g. The Beatles cut). It'll definitely make being in a party with your friends more interactive.

    I'm guessing so since clothing will be downloadable as well.

    I might but they seem a little dull. It depends on what they look like, and the customization options. I'm still showing off my gamerpic that I got for beating Gears on insane, it looks so nice. :P

    Yeah I heard it will be optional. I'm going to make one just because I like the idea. And I like using my 360 to the fullest extent.

    If it's optional, I'll definitely have a play around to see what kind of creation is possible - so far, I've only seen some pretty restricted, cheesy combinations for them on display at the Microsoft conference at this years E3.  Hopefully there'll be plenty more customisation options when it goes live.

    If it IS optional, wonder what the story is if you play games that support them?  I suppose there may be a generic replacement for those that opt out?

    Hopefully there will be, but I keep seeing it as content you'll have to pay for to download.

    While the PS3 is trying to become PS360(just a little).
    And the Wii, I have no clue what they want to be.
