Reminder: Last Day to Get You ‘Gun’ Like Props For Your AvatarDecember 31, 2011 No Comments
It looks like ‘Gun” like avatar props will be stripped off the marketplace starting January 1st 2012. The only weapons we know for sure that are on their way out are Gears of war props because they actually came out and let everyone know in their forums. Not sure exactly what other weapons will be banned but if you had your eyes on a certain prop that in its basic function shoots anything that looks like a bullet, you are better off just making sure you purchase that certain weapon today before the ball drops.
Official Statement from Microsoft
