Bring back Avatar Awards and free Avatar items

I would like to see avatar awards return for arcade games and full games on Xbox One. I would also like to see the return of free avatar items on the dashboard just like on the Xbox 360. I have downloaded so many free costumes, props, and other avatar items on the 360 dashboard.

    Avatars are a hidden feature for Xbox these days. If every new game coming out had avatar awards that were earned by conpleting a certain task, that is incentive for people to buy the game for exlcusive stuff, it's incentive to get cool looking avatars, and this will boost avatar customization by the people, and while people are customizing their avatar don't you think they will be included to buy more stuff for their avatar while searching the store for the items they have unlocked?

    When the NXE came out, Avatars were on full display. People loved showing off their stuff to their friends. And lots of people even purchased digital clothes. This all changed when the Metro design was rolled out. Microsoft shot themself in the foot. At this point, people aren't doing the Avatar stuff simply because Xbox changes their design so we don't really get to show off our stuff. In order for Avatar items to come back, I feel xbox would need an OS redesign that puts the little characters on display. NXE was a very cool update but Metro just ruined it.

    I used to collect so many avatar items and backgrounds from watching ads on the Xbox 360 dashboard, it was great.

    I had completely forgotten about avatar awards since I upgraded to an Xbox One, those were amazing too. Exclusive items only available through playing the game, they pretty much showed how much joy enjoyed a game also. Portal 2 had some great ones.

    This really needs to come back.

    At LEAST give us back our old items from the Xbox360! -.-
    This is like ripping off your gamescore, just because you earned it on the 360, not the Xbox One.
    MS you are the underdog in this console war. You better start getting great! Do things PS4 does not. Be the good guy.
