The Xbox Live update has been delivered and one of the things I’m interested in is the ability to win prizes for my Avatar by playing games. Microsoft didn’t give any details on whether old games will net you some goods or not, so I contacted Aaron Greenberg to get the details on avatar prizes. Here’s what he had to say:
I confirmed that the functionality for winning avatar items in-games shipped with
our LIVE update on August 11. One of the first games to ship with in-game awards
will be Splosion Man, which was the lead XBLA title for Summer of Arcade. More to
come on this in the future….
