Female Avatars Can Now Sport Team Jerseys

By Michelle Balsan, 4 years ago
While we don't typically cover avatar-related news here at TrueAchievements, a look through past comments on the issue of female avatars not being able to wear sports team jerseys is one that often comes up when the opportunity arises. As a female gamer sporting a female avatar myself, the fact that I couldn't pick up an avatar jersey to show my support for my favorite hockey team was frustrating and really inexplicable.

The folks at Microsoft have apparently been made aware of this issue, and Major Nelson revealed on his blog today that those of us with female avatars can now show our support for our favorite NHL and NFL squads.
