Xbox Avatar Halloween Costumes

Well, Microsoft is giving us a little treat for Halloween this year.  While it’s not too much of a treat to dress up our avatars in Halloween costumes for 240ms points(some costumes don’t come complete with hat/mask, if you want that it’s 80 extra MS points!!).  Avatar costumes range from Werewolfs, Vampies, Mummies, to Witches.  While I’m not sure how many people will actually indulge in these, they are available on the marketplace for anyone who wants them.  I wonder if on Halloween Microsoft will find a way to let our avatars go trick or treating and how many MS points will that cost.

    Still not a fan of buying clothes when avatars are already so rarely used.

    When they first announced Avatars and how you can change clothes and stuff, I was sure they were going to charge. They can out and had free stuff and even added more free stuff, so I was like ok good they aren’t charging.

    Avatar Marketplace is a complete waste of money, IMO.

    They’ll do everything for every holidays. Extra money is extra money, thank you, MS.
