Rumour: MS to allow XNA devs to use avatars for free

A source has told VG247 that Microsoft will allow XNA developers to use Xbox Live’s now-rumoured Mii-cloning Avatars for free.

We’ve also been told that Avatars will have ready-to-use animations in place such as run, walk, jump, and “break-it-down”, the last one being a bit of a shame.

In case you’ve only just got out of bed, research firm Intellisponse had its site “opened up” last night, leading to a torrent of rumours about titles such as Forza 3 and a new Singstar clone called Lips.
