Looks like spending Microsoft Points for your Avatars is not going to be enough, because you’re going to be sharing the love with Avatar Pets.
The first shipment is arriving today, and it comprises of Large Dog, Pug Dog, Dog in Bag, Cat, Siamese Cat, Long Haired Cat, Goldfish, Guinea Pig, Monkey, Bird, Snake and a Pony. It is expected that there will be subsequent shipment and I’m sure one day, Avatar Pets will have their own accessories and clothes.
Thing is, if you’re already spending money on Premium Themes, Avatar clothes and props, would you want to spend more on Pets?
Only time will tell.
Had a sample of Avatar Pets yesterday evening. Basically Avatar Pets are an extension of the props you can buy for your Avatar. This batch of pets did not interest me much so I wasn’t able to test whether it’s possbile to equip your Avatar with a prop and a pet at the same time. My guess is no.
The animations with each pet is fairly longer and varied, but like your props, they disappear after a while. It’s funny to see your Avatar flicking his fingers to make the pet vanish like magic. For 240 MS points or about S$4.95, I’d rather spend on Avatar clothes and props.
