No More Gun-Like Props for Xbox 360 Avatars in 2012

Starting January 1, 2012 Microsoft will no longer allow “gun-like” props for your Avatar!  In the further pussification of America some a-hole at MS has decided that these types of props shouldn’t be wielded by gamer’s Avatar’s on the XBL service.  This move makes it seem as if MS wants to take the 360 more in the direction of the lame a*s Wii crowd than the hardcore gamers it claims to cater to.  If you have any “gun-like” avatar props you won’t lose them, but just know you’ll never be able to get new ones beginning next year.  I usually don’t let stuff like this annoy me, but I really think this is a ridiculous move by MS, that honestly makes no sense.  They might as well only put out Kinect party titles rather than the violent games that they’ve been whipping since the 360’s inception.  God help us all!  You’ve been let down by the suits of Microsoft…
