Xbox Live Avatar revamp focuses on diversity, customization

Kudos to Microsoft: the company’s upcoming overhaul of its avatar system for Xbox opens up a ton of new customization options to ensure that you can really reflect yourself in your avatar. That means adding options like wheelchairs, prosthetics, and gender-neutral clothing.

Also in the mix are new body types, a ton of new clothing options, and even more props. Basically, it seems like if you can imagine it, you can make it happen.
