Microsoft execs switch out photos for Xbox avatars

steveballmer_avatar.pngCheck out all of the Microsoft top execs’ Xbox avatars.

Microsoft’s press center has switched out their mugshots for their Xbox Live alter egos in advance of Xbox Kinect’s launch on Nov. 4. Here is where you can see the execs’ avatars.

Kinect is the new motion sensor for the Xbox 360 video game system that lets gamer play without a handheld controller.

If you’ll scroll through the directory, you’ll see that every executive played along — except for Windows division president Steven Sinofsky, who has a Windows logo instead of his Xbox avatar.

That’s Steve Ballmer’s avatar to the right.
