Guitar Hero 5 will support Xbox Live Avatars

Could this be one of the first really interesting use of Xbox Live's avatar system?  Activision has announced that Guitar Hero 5 will allows rockers to import their avatar into the game.  Co-Op just got a whole lot more personal as your mini-me will shred virtual metal next to the rest of your friends and their avatars.

Thus: New Orleans, and better for it.
