An example of an Xbox Avatar.

Xbox Avatars are virtual figures that normally represent real life people. Xbox LIVE users can make their own avatars on their consoles. Avatars do not necessarily represent the actual user themselves, gamers have the ability to dress up and change the features of their avatar as many times as they like.

When users edit their avatar to their liking they have the option to take a picture of their avatar and set it as their gamer picture however this is optional. Avatars were released to Xbox LIVE when Xbox 360 was released in November 2008.
