Microsoft will continue the assault on our wallets when the avatar marketplace goes live. Below you will find some of the pricing for such things as a Monkey Island: SE Cotton Swab that will set you back 160 Microsoft Points or $2.

So what will spend your money on, accessories to make your avatar stand out from the rest, or will it be an arcade game with it’s pricing that continues to be on an upward climb. I for one will be staying away from accessories for my avatar that require me to pay for them, as long as Microsoft continues to keep some clothes out there for free, my avatar will continue to keep his clothes on.
