During Microsoft’s Xbox One reveal, the company made no mention of the console utilizing Rare’s Avatar creation, which became a large part of the Xbox 360 interface in 2008. But according to the corporate vice president of interactive business at Microsoft, Ben Killgore, Avatars are here to stay, though he believes that users are more likely to opt for using ‘real life’ images instead.
“Avatars are still around,” Kilgore said. “Identity is a big thing for us. We believe on Xbox One, people will start to use more real images of themselves as well, but we still support Avatars.”
So there you have it. If you had concerns about Xbox One not continuing to embrace the creation of Avatars, then there’s no reason to fret. For more information regarding Xbox One, visit this post.
