Create a cool Xbox 360 avatar to represent your individual Xbox 360 gamertag. You can design this avatar, purchase customisations for it and even use it in certain Xbox 360 games such as “Guitar Hero 5” or “Band Hero.” New customisations for your avatar appear over time in the avatar editor. Save your favourite outfits for later if you want to experiment with a new look.
