    Apparently there's new winter-themed clothes up for avatars.

    edit: Snowboarding Jacket, Snowboarding Boots, Ski Gloves, Flame Beanie. All new items will have an orange star.

    I figured there would be a bit wider of a selection of things...

    But no.

    I'm peeved that you can't even customize the colors of things. Kinda sucks.

    Seriously, color editing can't be so hard to implement.

    I was upset at the lack of a full-zip cardigan. :X

    Still better than the Wii's choice of... no clothes and 6 (or 8) colors. :P

    I really can't believe that no one in the testing process asked for color changes. MS was probably like "Change the colors of the clothes? That's cute, but no."

    I didn't see any of the new clothes available when I tried editing my Avatar a bit ago. Despite the Spotlight practically screaming at me that there were winter hats available.

    Hey, wasn't someone in here going to transplant their own larger hard drive into the 360 case a week or so ago?

    Did we ever find out how that went?

    I think he got Livebanned, arrested, shipped to Gitmo, then hung drawn and quartered.

    And they didn't even refund him the rest of his year subscription.

    Well, I guess the refund would have been sort of silly after the hanging.

    Xbox gamers are too hardcore to want that kind of customization. That's best left to the Bravo watching Wii crowd.

    Yeah. It's the same thing in WoW. It bothers me that you can't dye your armor or anything like that.

    Ughhh the HDMI no-audio-with-NXE thing sucks so much. How have they not patched this yet? Having to take my HDD out and put it back in every time I turn on the console sucks ass.

    I have HDMI and it works fine.
    Edit: I had not heard of this problem. I googled and see it is an issue. Guess I am just lucky.

    1. I love the HDD install feature. It makes Prince of Persia run awesome.

    2. I think my optical drive is dieing. Prince of Persia gave me three DREs, each before even getting into the game, and I had to install it to the HDD to make it run.

    As do I, and I haven't noticed this.

    maybe you shouldn't have modded your HDD ;p

    i actually just switched to HDMI from component, and i'm not sure the picture is 'clearer' as it is 'bluer'.
    edges are sharper and colors look better, though, and games like halo 3 and left 4 dead look that much better to me now (only on 720p, should say).

    99% of the games are 720 or less anyway.

    The whole Avatar idea is too Mii-esque. They're not even trying to hide it.

    This is something I would also like to know. I had auto sign-in enabled, and starting last night I had to sign in anyway, because it wouldn't sign my profile in when I turned my console on. I gave up and disabled it for now (if it's not going to work and I have to sign in anyway, what's the point of leaving it enabled?).

    Toggle it on and off?

    The only time it doesn't work for me is if my HDD is on another console.

    I tried that, still no dice. It only stopped working... well I haven't played it in about 4 days, and the console is used by others, but I checked all their profiles and there doesn't seem to be any conflicting auto sign-in options.

    Apparently the issue is not isolated, as I've read reports (but no solutions, sadly) on other forums, before NXE, too.

    Argh, pisses me off when something that used to work now doesn't :x

    Well they aren't required too, halo 3 runs at 640p and apperantly so does perfect dark
