Virtual pets for your virtual self.
December 2, 2009 - Are you ready for this?
Microsoft has announced that pets will be added to the Avatar Marketplace, as of tomorrow. They don't have fancy names yet. That will be your job, naturally. Everything from several types of dogs and cats all of the way up to a pony will be up for sale at a price of 240 Microsoft points a pop (US $3).
Here's the full list: Large Dog, Pug Dog, Dog in Bag, Cat, Siamese Cat, Long Haired Cat, Goldfish, Guinea Pig, Monkey, Bird, Snake, and Pony.
You can now pay more money for a virtual goldfish than it actually costs to go buy a goldfish. On the flip side, parents can now afford to buy their daughters that pony they always wanted.
