Xbox 360 Avatars make the jump to the Xbox One

As part of IGN's "Ask Microsoft Anything" interview, gamers got to pepper Xbox Chief Product Officer Mark Whitten with questions ranging from DVR capture to Xbox 360 Avatars. Whitten took the opportunity to confirm that Xbox 360 Avatars will indeed make the jump over to the Xbox 360, but with some enhancements.

"Your avatar will be on the [Xbox One] system at launch and in fact, you’ll have some new options, including the ability to do full-body HD gamerpics," Whitten said.

"We should actually talk more about gamerpics too", he added. "We’ve moved from the 64x64 gamerpics on Xbox 360 to a full 1080p. They are beautiful, and you are going to see some really cool hero moments, like when you login to see personalized views of your games and other content."

We're refraining from making comment on full-body gamerpics.
