Microsoft Removing Avatar Guns from Xbox Live

According to Epic Games community manager Will Kinsler Microsoft will start removing Avatar guns from Xbox Live on January 1st. The Xbox owes its popularity to a game that is solely about shooting things with guns. We’re talking about Halo of course. So it may seem a bit ironic to disallow guns from Xbox Live avatars, but it actually does make a lot of sense. There may be a lot of Xbox games that use guns and have a lot of violence, but the Avatar is the face of every player. Every player is not old enough to play Halo, but every player has an Avatar. Kudos to Microsoft for protecting the younger Xbox users.
