    Default Lancer and Hammerburst avatar items no longer available on Marketplace on 1/1/2012

    Heads up! Starting on Jan. 1, 2012, the Lancer and Hammerburst avatar items will no longer be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace. If youĺve purchased the items prior to Jan. 1, you will be able to keep them. A new policy goes into effect for all gun-like avatar items on the Marketplace, so get them while theyĺre hot.

    Wow...just wow. Again with the "Positive message" bull. Rather not get into the whole debate on people think for themselves and make their own decisions, not video games debate, its not worth it. Thanks for the heads up though.

    Why couldn't they just make a simple fix like make it so account creators under the age of idk 18 not be able to see others "mature" content?

    That is sad, I am happy I got a lancer while it lasted
    Now I lie awake and scream in a zero gravity and it's starting to weigh down on me. Let's abort this mission now. Can I please come down?
    So tonight I'm calling all astronauts, all the lonely people that the world forgot if you hear my voice come pick me up, are you out there? 'Cause you're all I've got!
    And tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut sending SOS from this tiny box and I lost all signal when I lifted up now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot...Can I please come down!?

    REALLY?!

    That is just stupid. It's stuff like this that causes trouble with people not some silly avatar prop. This "political correctness" and "ethical" stuff is getting out of hand.

    Anyway Glad I got the Lancer and HB a while back now. As for getting to keep them, can you imagine the uproar if we couldn't?! LOL

    glad I snagged the Golden Lancer prop when Gears 3 came out. the real question though is do I want to snag the golden Hammerburst when I buy my Gears 3 theme, flower camo, and Rainbow camo (the last i need to complete my collection) after christmas

    Bad move from mircosoft if u ask me. I think its because they want to be more family-friendly...

    Big thanks to anyone who ever gave me a code for weapon/char skin!

    Mental note: Must rush out and not buy things I don't need, but instead get them for someone for Christmas.

    How many MSP is it? I doubt I'll get it due to my lack of MSP but just curious..
    No... The Forums don't make much sense...

    People complain to use the search bar, and when people actually do they complain about bumping an old thread.
