Apparently unbeknownst to me, Avatar Pets were in demand. Well as from today (Thursday 3rd December) you will be able to adopt your very own Pet for your Avatar. The initial offerings will be:
Large Dog, Pug Dog, Dog in Bag, Cat, Siamese Cat, Long Haired Cat, Goldfish, Guinea Pig, Pony, Monkey, Bird, Snake.
Also if you’re a Final Fantasy fan, for a limited time only you may be able to get your hands on your very own Chocobo pet for your Avatar, visit Xbox.com/FFXIII page for more information.
Pets for your Avatar will cost 240 Microsoft Points.
