I see on the posts that people have lots of different gamer pictures i have never seen before. I knowthat their are free ones but most of u have decent ones. Where do u get um and can u upload em on to the 360 and use ur own pictures?

Most gamerpics you have to buy from the marketplace using points, but if you have a live camera you can use custom pics.

Ok cool, do u think they r worth buying then?

Yeah man, i have so many of them but if you didn't want to spend a lot on them the GRAW 2 pics are all good. There's 20 of them for 200pts which is a better deal then most of the other stuff out there.

Im not a GRAW fan to be honest mate, i will probably invest into the cam though.

You have to buy most gamer pics from the Xbox Live Marketplace, using microsoft points. I know, its dumb. But hey.

US xbox live has a lot more content for gamerpics than other regions, so just because you can see other people with a cool pic, doesn't mean you can get it if you aren't on US Live.

You CAN use a Livecam for taking your own gamerpics, but they will only be visible to people on your friends list. You will have to pick a standard gamerpic for the rest of the world to see.

Some games give you gamerpics when you play them, others when you achieve certain things in the game more unlock, but not all games do this. Some just like to charge you point on marketplace.

There are some gamer picture that you get free from games and some demos.

Others you buy or download for free.

There are even some you are awarded when you do something in a game.

Ex: Get the 10,000 kill achievement on Gears of War and you get an awesome gamer picture.

Now they've introduced the avatar's, you can take pics of your avatar! and also, if you buy the XBOX360 Official Magazine, It Comes With a Demo Disc, and that always has 5 free exclusivelimited edition gamer pictures with it

Cool. Didn't know OXM did that. Never bought one before. Didn't know about the Live cam either, that's cool. I thought they didn't let you set photos as your gamerpic because lots of people would have pictures of their willys and such which kids would be able to see. Makes sense though that only people on your friends list can see it then.
