‘Gun-like’ Avatar Items to be Banned from the Xbox Marketplace

Microsoft will be barring any Avatar proper that resembles a firearm, basically an anti-gun policy. Gotta protect those kids while they’re playing Halo and Gears! Epic Games has declared that the Hammerburst and Lancer Avatar props are going to be removed on January 1, 2012, as part of this policy. If you bought these items already, you will be able to keep them, but there will be no more “gun-like” items on sale in the Avatar Marketplace.

It seems a bit ridiculous to be honest, some of the best things that deal with Avatar’s are the accessories that can be obtained through them. Tnis isn’t Disney, it’s not like there is some reputation  as “cute and cuddly” that they have to uphold.
