Default MS' answer to Mii's/PS Home?

This is one of those things that isn't really important to some, but very appealing to others. I for one like anything that will differentiate me from someone else. I like being able to customize my 'appearance'. In other words, I like being different. With Mii characters being popular and Home (supposedly) releasing someday, MS looks like they might be trying to compete.

Rumor has it that MS will be losing the GamerPics and having "3d like avatars". Here is the Joystiq article (rumor):

very cool.

I wonder how customizable this will be? or what kind of 3D rendering background we will need.


or if it is as simple as building Lego.

I think it will be like building a Lego. Basically just like customizing any character in a game, or even like building your EASportsWorld avatar. As long as it doesn't involve a lot of micro-transactions, I'll like it.

I'm hoping it's very customizable. Like I said, I want to be as unique as possible

I like the idea, for the same reason as jujimum.
