Avatar Shopping Could Change Future of Online Shopping

We all knew it was coming... especially Luke Plunkett, a Kotaku, who started the buzz back in June... Microsoft's New Xbox experience will be allowing avatars to purchase products from the Avatar Shop.

I know gaming isn't really my subject matter, but could you imagine the possibilities if the fashion industry started to think like this? Could you imagine walking into a virtual store and spinning around in a 360 view and picking up things off of shelves? Could you imagine actually trying on clothes virtually with an avatar that has your exact measurements? Could you imagine walking up to a virtual clerk and purchasing online? Could you imagine a week later you get a package on your front door?

The possibilities are endless.
