so.... tell me again how to get a WP7 for my Avatar?
I got the xBox and the Kinect, so I have Fable III, Halo something, Gunstringer, Fruit Ninja, Kinect Adventures, and the wife bought me Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3.
so far I have only played the Kinect adventures, and it was pretty amazing.
I'm 32 years old, and I haven't been into video games since I got tired of my Super NES. The kids have a Wii, but I never liked that thing. All I have done thus far is set up the xBox, and I cannot wait to get home to play the games.

So glad you're enjoying your new XBox mike.mike. :)
Unfortunately the WP avatar prop seems to have been a limited time offer on the US dashboard.
(It wasn't even released in Europe)
It used to be an advert on the dashboard telling you about Windows Phone and your avatar jumped into the advert. It was very cool.
Don't think you can get it any more though. :(
There was also another code that you could get with the WP Beards & Beaks game, alas I think it's long gone too.
Here's a video showing how to get the prop at the time. (Contains Swearing)
Here's the Birds & Beaks Avatar Prop

At 56, I sort of missed the gaming generation. But I had to get an XBox/Kinect earlier this month anyway for t better understand how things work. Have played the Adventurers games with Kinect and they are amazing. Kinect leaves a little to be desired for basic navigation, but it will get there.
Some of the available apps are really sweet. Already signed up for Netflix and the new YouTube app is very nice. XBox is not just for gaming anymore.
