It looks like the rumors of a November release for the NXE were correct as Major Nelson has confirmed via his TGS liveblog
that the NXE will be released world wide on November 19th. What this means for the avatar enabled features
of the new Scene It
game are unknown at this time. I'm interested to see how well it's received and how well it stacks up against Sony's Home service which Microsoft seems to have borrowed heavily from.
