Reminder: Last Day to Get You ‘Gun’ Like Props For Your Avatar

December 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

“Xbox Live Marketplace has updated its policies to provide further clarity for third-party publishers submitting content for approval. This includes details about weapons such as firearms. Xbox Live has always reserved the right to reject or expire from the marketplace any type of weapon prop content that is deemed unsuitable for its general audience,”

“Because the Xbox Live Marketplace is accessible to members of all ages, it is important our policies clearly address what content is available to all. This policy provides additional clarity to publishers in advance of the content review process.”
