    As in, not one of the ones selectable from the menu but your own custom image?

    As far as I know its not possible.

    The best you can do is take a pic with the vision cam, but even that has restricitions in that only your friends on live will see it and they'll only see it through the xbox, no one will see it on the internet.

    Quite a simple thing that M$ have seemed to not implemented but maybe it'll change some time, im sure there's a valid reason why they decided against it though.

    Hmm, why then can other places, like this forum for instance, allow you to use a pic you can choose yourself?

    Not saying you're wrong, just wondering - dont really know about copyright laws etc

    For all the hormone enraged teenagers on XBL I'd say the above is the key reason :rotfl:

    AVF allows Avatars of most descriptions the same way most forums do by having Moderators keep an eye out for ones which are unsavoury etc....

    copyright isnt really much of a problem as most companies would see it as free advertising and it isnt gaining us anything so they dont feel like they've made a loss......

    MS doesnt allow custom avatars mainly because of the fact most would end up like sprays on CS:S.....namely pr0n.......problem for MS is they are in control of the connecting servers, which means they are responsible for the content......i think most of evangelical america would be beating a path to silicon valley to run giant electromagnets over bill gates behind if their little Tod and Rod were able to view a woman being humped by a goat on a X-Box 360 :D

    but also yes, the profit side comes in to, why let people have what they want when you can sell them stuff to put there ;)

    altho the cam thing is confusing there.....does it show up on any 360 thing...or perhaps just to people on certain Zones? (wondering if perhaps its restricted on Zones more likely to be populated by kids etc)

    Microsoft also allow you to change your pic on MSN Messanger too.

    And also add custom emoticons.

    So to not allow you to change your Gamercard pic is a bit odd.

    But your MSN pic isn't public and published in public forums is it? (Well not any I've been to anyway!) The Live gamerpic can turn up in all kinds of places where it shouldn't and cause offense I'd guess...

    Oh I didn't know that. Yeah I guess your MSN pic is only seen by people on your list. I haven't used Xbox Live yet so I didn't know it can be seen by all and sundry :)

    Well, the custom Live gamerpic is only visible to your friends list and thats a good way to do it IMHO. :smashin:

    So all the non-default pics I see on here are just photoshopped?

    All the gamerpics you see here are bought from the Marketplace on Live.

    Oh ok. Didn't think that many people actually spent money on those.
