Feel like you can never accurately let your school spirit loose on Xbox Live? Well, worry no more, as Microsoft and Disruptive Media Publishers, who teamed up to release apparel from 30 top universities for the Dashboard Avatars. Your favorite emblems and colors now adorn various styles of varsity jackets, fitted caps, hooded sweatshirts, shoes, polos, and pretty much any other article of clothing imaginable (at least as far as the underwear-less selection is concerned.) The official list of participating universities can be found after the jump.
“Xbox LIVE Avatar Marketplace has been incredibly popular with our community,” said Christina DeRosa, General Manager, Xbox LIVE. “We know Xbox LIVE members love to represent themselves and their personalities through their Avatars – in fact, people have changed their clothes nearly 150 million times! Now whether you’re a student, alumni or simply a fan, you can wear your university gear with pride, which is truly exciting.”
“Universities have been cautious with regards to the digital personalization space, but we have been impressed with the creativity and capabilities of Disruptive Publishers,” said David Kirkpatrick, Vice President of Non-Apparel Marketing, The Collegiate Licensing Company. “We are excited about Disruptive Publishers’ depth of licensed offerings as well as their plans for collegiate expansion.”
