E3 2017: New Xbox Avatars Due Out This Fall, Focuses On Cultural Diversity
Xbox One Avatars
(Last Updated On: June 19, 2017)

One of the lesser talked about news items that popped up during this past E3 was the new Xbox Avatars due out this fall for Xbox One, Xbox One S and Xbox One X users.

A brief minute long trailer rolled out to briefly take a look at the new Avatar designs and some of the features Microsoft has implemented for the characters. You can check it out below.

The trailer starts by showing an SJW-friendly Tumblrette turned real. She hits every check list except for being a minority. Then again she probably identifies as transracial, so I guess that counts.

Anyway, she has the shaved head, purple hair dye and she’s disabled with a robot prosthetic. Literally if she was just a bit darker skinned and identified as a pansexual otherkin, they would have knocked it out of the park.

It’s not all about Tumblr styles, though.

The trailer does showcase some more normalized apparel and getups, such as a dude in a monkey mask with monkey hands and red polyester suit. Next to him is a fake Frozen-esque character who probably has a bright future on a Pixv casting couch.

Oh, and you can even be a disabled minority in a wheelchair.

Still can’t believe they didn’t roll out the lesbian or bisexual modifier in there somewhere. They were so close to checking off each of the tokens on the totem pole of the progressive stack.

They did also showcase some new skateboard apparel as well, along with leather getups and motorcycles.

Interestingly they include accessories for VR headsets even though the Xbox One or Xbox One X don’t support VR. Weird.

They also outlined more gear for those who are disabled, including a running prosthetic for amputees with missing leg(s).

I think we also finally get a look at the lesbian… an androgynous figure with a red pointy finger, wide hips, a somewhat feminine face and rotund body. It’s impossible to tell if it’s a boy or a girl, but if it’s a girl, I think this trailer may have just hit all the token checkboxes.

Whew. I knew you could do it Microsoft, I was betting on you hitting every single notch on that checklist like a boss. Now the mutant, Rastafarian, space monkey, pirates will be cheering from their refugee housing structures, glad that they can finally be represented on Xbox Live, using Liberal-encouraged welfare checks to pay for all those new customization items.

Once the trailer stops virtue signaling they then get back to just showcasing some more wacky and original Avatar customization apparel, including briefcases with handcuffs, pirate gear, a variety of high-heels and other footwear, astronaut suits, bum gear, even country music-themed gear.

We also get to see some of the more wacky creations, including a rainbow haired unicorn with a girl on top wearing a Mardi Gras mask.

Others took notice of the virtue signaling as well, and the the comment section had a bit of fun with the whole thing.







You can look for the Xbox Avatars to go live this fall for Microsoft’s various gaming platforms.

  • I’m laughing at the “muh options” and “muh diversity” retards in this article’s comments section.

    Have people really pissed their pants so much that their anger is completely blinding them from seeing that the article is mocking the SJW virtue-signaling and NOT the avatar options?

    Very SJW-esque behavior from these people. It’s almost as if they are SJWs pretending to be neutral…

    So giving people options is virtue signaling now? Seriously? It’s like you think that Tumblr invented minorities or something. Honestly, based off of what I just read, you only see people who are not part of the majority as “political objects”, not as normal human beings. Which is (funny enough) exactly how Tumblr sees minorities, not normal human beings, which is why they constantly write blog posts glorifying them.
    What’s next? Are you going to complain about Nintendo giving people the option to give their Miis cornrows or dreadlocks and accuse them of “pandering to blacks”?

      That’s exactly how Microsoft portrayed them in the trailer. Unlike you, I don’t accept corporate virtue-signaling as the status quo, and unlike you I’m not so conditioned to faux progressivism that I’m not going to call out corporatists for their very obvious pandering techniques. Besides, none of the people they’re supposedly pandering to will likely even throw money at the screen for all that stuff.

      You know who will? The majority of people who already own the console and will attempt to make their wheelchair-bound, cyborg Hitler. You’ll see a heck of a lot more of them running around than you will pregnant black ladies with a missing arm.

      • Ms.GammaRay

        Alright, how would you protray “minorities” if you were to direct the commercial without “vitrue signaling”, exactly?

        • First off, you start showing the old Xbox Live Avatars so people know what they used to look like. Then you show them making a frowny face as if they’re not really pleased with how they look, and you say:

          “Change is coming!”

          http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4037/4539020767_4a1d2d6297.jpg

          *Poof*

          The old Xbox Live Avatar changes into the new Xbox Live Avatar.

          https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4202/35269483871_f8e38c0856_z.jpg

          Keep the cheery, motivated music.

          Start swapping the character parts while the Avatar shows excitement for the changes.

          New hair, new skin colors, new accessories, new clothes.

          Show this same avatar changing through a variety of options; put them in a wheelchair, put them on a horse, show their robot arm but make it look cool by putting them in an awesome outfit like Adam Jensen or the cyborg ninja getup from Metal Gear.

          Make people see the differences and diversity as noteworthy and exciting, not that they’re being pandered to as a special sad case of society’s refuse or as if they’re some sort of dejected aspect of humanity.

          The whole point of the Avatar system was so people could express themselves in cool ways, not represent how oppressed they are, since the whole point of gaming is about progression not regression.

    I wouldn’t mind the missing limbs and wheelchair items if they were just added by updates unannounced. But this video feels like Microsoft is just trying to get brownie points by putting as many “unrepresented minorities” as possible, instead of coming off as thoughtful they come off as self-righteous douchebags that will use this video as a way to protect themselves from criticism.

    They just made being an amputees a joke.
    Being pregnant isn’t Fun.
    Fat people will still lie to themselves about their weight.

    Microsoft really didn’t have to make a spectacle about it, the happy-go-lucky and the “inspirational” titles just comes off as too strong.

  • Daisy C

    Can you imagine being this fragile and sensitive over representing people who actually exist lmao

  • MONAD

    This is pure and absolute virtue signaling of the most disgusting order. With Microsoft disabling all the comments on their “___ of Gaming” GDC videos because so many people called them on their bullshit, I was half expecting this. Look, I’m permanently disabled due to a born physical condition in my ankles and legs. I don’t need MY VIRTUAL FUCKING AVATAR TO REFLECT THAT. I WANT MY AVATAR TO BE BETTER THAN WHAT I AM IRL, GODDAMNIT. I am so fucking sick of people thinking you need to coddle and protect the feefees of the disabled. On behalf of myself, fuck YOU, Microsoft.

    I’m well capable of fighting for myself. I don’t need anyone speaking on my behalf.

    • GodBowser

      You reminded me of Subaru from .hack//Sign because in real world she was wheel chair bound and in the virtual world she was able to do the things that able bodied people can

      Any ways you made me wonder how harmful virtue signaling could be and about your avatar being better then what you are is like how my role play characters are normally tall and muscular since the real me is over weight and a bit below average height but seriously if someone uses a wheel chair bound avatar would they run the risk of being discriminated against online because of it

      And I’m sorry if this comment might come off as being insulting

      • MONAD

        Nah, my dude. It wasn’t insulting at all. In fact, yeah, that does kinda sound like something I’d do in a game. I play games with customizable characters because I want to see what I can create. I don’t want to be myself in a virtual space, what would be the point if you set the same limitations as your virtual self that you have as your physical self? It’s fucking dumb is what it is.

    • Tyler

      … so just make an avatar that’s better than you, it’s not like you have to use these new options. Why does giving the ability for other disabled individuals (with which you seem to have no solidarity) the ability to accurately represent themselves impact you? And if it does, why is that negative impact greater than the potential freedom given to millions of others to create an avatar they want?

      • MONAD

        Because it’s fucking stupid and infantalizing. I’m an individual. I’m not a group, you dumb shit. I have no problem shitting on these other people that want the government to do EVERY goddamn thing for them. I’d KILL to be able to get off of disability and put the work in like everyone else. I don’t WANT to feel like an invalid relying on others. Stop assuming you know me.

        Also, because the real world doesn’t work like that. Just because you have so many options, doesn’t mean any of those options will be recognized by others. Stop being a twat.

        • Tyler

          dude what are you yelling about the government for
          I also really think Microsoft should remove/hide options from millions who might benefit from them because of One Angry Nerd’s insecurities and bitterness in a comment forum, that’d be fucking dope

        • Tyler

          Anyways, beyond just being inflammatory, here’s the kicker: I like to accurately portray myself in avatars, and I know that giving my otherwise disabled and non-typical friends and colleagues to ability to accurately portray themselves in avatars does them a great service. Still speaking for myself, but echoing their concerns. The great thing is, you already know that you’ll be able to portray yourself as “better than you,” or able-bodied, or however you see fit, because that’s the default for most avatars. Others prefer not to hide their true selves, and in most avatar creation services, that’s not an option for the disabled community because customization options are typically limited to “normal guys” like white dudes in red suits with monkey costumes, as the author already made the case for in this piece. At least you acknowledge that you’re only speaking for yourself, and that you’re basically void of empathy and deaf to the desires of others. So at least you’ve got solidarity with the other halfwit Gamergate refugees on this site. lol this place is bunk, enjoyed the short visit though

          • Holy crap dude, could you virtue signal any harder?

            The options are there; if you want to use them starting this fall, you can. No one is saying options are bad. I took the piss out of Microsoft for virtue signaling because it’s cringy as f**k. Why on Earth are you in here defending such a low-ball corporate move to pander to people who don’t even play video games or care about Xbox Live Avatars?

            Are you going to chuck out $9.99 for a wheelchair? Will you toss your $4.99 dosh into Microsoft’s money dump for a prosthetic leg? Do you even care about paying for rainbow colored hair?

            The whole trailer was designed to get people like you defending their virtue signaling on the grounds of racking up high-horse progressive capital to talk down to plebs as if you’re some kind of digital avatar savant.

            You do know that normal people are laughing at you from behind the screen, right?

            besides, “virtue signaling,” the only accusation anyone on this entire thread is making, is a made up issue meant to protect the insecurities of internet nerds who would rather corporations pander to them with hordes of cookie cutter action games chock full of buff angry dudes than attempt to show any sort of gratitude to the diverse communities that make up their customer base. like yeah, genuinely fuck Microsoft because they are a shitty corporation, but please don’t “virtue signal” your heroic anti-corporate resistance to excuse your clearly anti-diversity position. you know you wouldn’t make a peep if Microsoft filled this trailer with white neckbeards in monkey masks. you threw the exact same fit about Beyond Good and Evil 2, which you can apply none of the same anti-Microsoft sentiments toward.

            Wow… just wow. The projection here is so strong that you could run a successful drive-in theater without a power grid.

            Who here has said anything about the glistening, shiny muscles on buffed, chiseled men with rock-hard six-pack abs and bouncing pecs? The only person who brought that up is you.

            genuinely fuck Microsoft because they are a shitty corporation

            Good.

            but please don’t “virtue signal” your heroic anti-corporate resistance to excuse your clearly anti-diversity position.

            And how, pray tell, did you come to the conclusion that this site or myself or its users maintain an anti-diversity position?

            you know you wouldn’t make a peep if Microsoft filled this trailer with white neckbeards in monkey masks.

            How would we know they’re white with neckbeards if they’re wearing monkey masks? Come on, man.

            you threw the exact same fit about Beyond Good and Evil 2, which you can apply none of the same anti-Microsoft sentiments toward.

            So you’re okay with blacks being represented as jive-talking Rasta monkeys? That’s diversity to you, eh? Pfft, who’s the racist one now, ace?

            please see above
            also, how can you be anti-seeing/showing diversity without being anti-diversity? “I have no problem with diverse character types, but I write an angry article about every game I see that doesn’t have Kratos or William Blazkowicz as a lead”

            So you’re okay with blacks being represented as jive-talking Rasta monkeys? That’s diversity to you, eh? Pfft, who’s the racist one now, ace?

            you used the antiquated epithet “blacks,” not me! also, there’s literally a human black woman on the motorcycle with him for half the trailer, in case you didn’t watch far enough before going online to pander about SJW’s and their spooky ~diversity~

          • this entire point just boils down to “you’re gay.” lame and lazy, you’ve shown snappier rhetorical skills than that

            These kind of articles, the so-called “angry” articles, are the only articles projected into your social justice circles to fuel outrage culture. These following articles will never see the light of day in your regressive convent:

          • Tyler

            Cool articles! Kind of, I think 4 or 5 of them still included cheap swipes directed at feminists, Tumblr-users, and SJW’s, rather than celebrating the games as they come and letting them rest on their own-merits. I underestimated your general openness, but showing a handful of LGBTQ-friendly and woman-protagonist-friendly articles (despite quips about androgynous lesbians in this article) doesn’t exactly show your cred when it comes to issues of race and disabilities. Rampant racism in the gay community has been a longstanding issue.

            Do you actually care or are you just using this as a “gotcha!”? Because I actually don’t see any complaints about it from any black gaming journalists. They have a white-sounding pig in the trailer, it really is a non-issue as far as I’ve seen.

            I take swipes at everyone. Especially the perpetually offended because you can always count on them to dive into a comment section to ignorantly virtue signal.

            Really dude? Anyone who regularly follows the site knows we cover a lot of content that spans every race, creed, religion, orientation and gender. This is the thing about SJWs, though, it’s always never enough even when it’s more than enough. Now I don’t have to prove you wrong, but boy oh boy do I get a hard-on by proving people wrong with facts. So this is just for you:

            In the mind of SJWs if you’re not constantly virtue signaling then obviously you aren’t on the right side of history, and must be a alt-Right, racist, Trump supporter.

            This is why I always take potshots at SJWs, and this is why most of them get torn to shreds defending their asinine ideology once they step foot in the comment section on this site.

    • Accipiter

      lol, it is pretty ridiculous
      Are we going to reach a technological level where we participate in games and are required to have a virtual avatar that reflects our physical bodies?
      Why would I want to be a dude with no legs?

  • Bad Dad

    I like options. Customization options are always a good thing in my book. Dont think its a crime against humanity for a wheelchair bound gamer to make a wheelchair bound avatar just for their enjoyment.

    • MONAD

      No, but Microsoft did it in the most cringy way possible. They had to virtue signal to social justice.

    Oh you bet MS is gonna milk the suckers for all they have for this Avatar shit. 1$ here and 5 $ there

    • Shay Wilson

      I’m with you on this one. Deep customization works for me. I see the point about virtue signaling, but I feel this preview walks that line well and without a follow up press release telling us how great Microsoft is for finally (it is the current year after all) having the first disabled avatars, I’m good.

    • It’s not. I’m just taking the piss out of Microsoft for the virtue-signaling way the trailer was put together. Usually customization trailers are done like Everybody’s Golf, where you see the avatars, the items you can use and the accessories you can add to the characters. It’s about the function not the form.

    • No-one’s against the options or representations of the avatars.

      People are against the absolutely cringe-worthy SJW virtue-signaling.

      Did you forget the “LGBT/Blacks/latinos/women in gaming” trailers from microsoft. The virtue-signaling was pretty strong during E3

  • GodBowser

    If this did not reek of political correctness I’d be fine with that prosthetic arm because I could create a nice cyber punk theme avatar

    With the new color options I bet the bronys and pegasisters will be thrilled because they’ll get to have humanoid pony avatars that actually look the part

    I wonder if the My Little Pony fan base has been infiltrated by SJW’s yet

    Those are some very うんち looking avatars. This kind of thing reeks of the end of human society. Why does the yellow T-shirt VR headset guy look like his left leg is heavily dislocated to his left?

    This is bait, they are just waiting for someone to get triggered about avatar discrimination and 1984 will fall on the community

    Wheels chairs, rainbow colored hair and other accessories of being oppressed coming to Xbox near you soon™.

  • Honestly, wouldn’t this just show that the customization is really deep? What’s wrong with having options?

    • Options are good. They just made sure that they showed off those options in the most virtue signaling way imaginable.

      • mikebrand83

        Which would make it extra ironic, if the UN has its way and force them to remove at least half of the options over “cultural appropriation”.

        • That would be funny. I know it would be absolutely awful if that mandate passed, but part of me really wants to see just how screwed over all of our entertainment media would become because of that.

            Oh yes that be funny as fuck the avatars indeed fall foul of “cultural appropiation” Never mind UN better luck next time.

            Because im sure SJW M$ Will fight it tooth and Nail.

          The UN is not going to make Cultural Appropriation illegal. How the fuck would you even enforce that shit without looking like a tyrant?

      • DizzyGear

        Honestly they do look kinda good and look well animated compared to the old ones or those godawfull Mii’s Nintendo insists on shoving down your throat.

        But did anyone ask for this or even used the avatar’s on the 360?

        • Not sure if anyone asked for it. I assume it’s just part of Microsoft’s diversity agenda. It’s certainly not bad and it would be neat to use in games that allowed for Avatars (they’re extremely rare, though, which is odd given that Miis look freaky but are used frequently in Nintendo games).

          The way the trailer was put together was cringy enough for me to take the piss out of them. But there’s absolutely nothing wrong with more stuff.

          • DizzyGear

            Knowing MS Prolly more part of their mirco transaction agenda for clothing options etc and this trailer was just a cold calculated thing shat out by their marketing team.

            From what i recall only a handful of XBLA and kinect games used the old avatars on the 360 and pretty much noone gave a rats ass about them so it just surprised me they are trying again.

            I wonder if Sony will hop on the bandwagon with Home 2.0 with a similar trailer except with character models that are from even deeper depths of the uncanny valley then their PS3 version.

    • Disqusted

      Now’s our chance to virtue signal by posting videos of appealing SJW characters in every game with customizable characters, then watch the diverse advertiser revenue and multicultural donations roll in.

      Assuming that stuff is even remotely as profitable and popular as the mainstream keeps treating it.

    Oh man, I love this. It’s like an ad for a Bernie rally in Berkeley.

      I actually did see a dude in a wheelchair play DDR with his hands once. He was drunk though and bruised his hand since the pads were made of steel.
