heads: the promised Gears of War 3
Avatar items are now available
on Xbox Live Marketplace. So far there are eight items in the collection, including T-shirts, sleeveless COG armor, a hat, and, sweetest of all, a Ticker Avatar pet. The items range in price from 80
($1) to 320
($4). Granted, it's not the same as actually playing Gears of War 3
-- which you won't be doing until next year
-- but at least you can pretend, right?
