New Kameo contest is calling all designers!

How would you like to design your very own skin for characters in Kameo? Microsoft and Rare are giving gamers a chance to get creative with the Design Your Skin Contest where the artsy type can whip up an original work of art for the elemental warriors or Kameo to be distributed for all the world to enjoy.

This is open to teens and above and involves three things. First, you'll need a unique design. Follow that up with a title like "Roller Ninja Pummelweed" (their example, not mine) and a description of how it all comes together. Eleven winners will be chosen, each corresponding to the elemental warriors and Kameo. Just fire off an e-mail to Kameo_Contest [at] Kameo.com and get that design out there. And be sure to check out the official website for the rest of the rules. Good luck!

1. I guess this is the evolution of the promise that we'd have user designed content.

What MS said: you as the customer can make content and put it on the marketplace to sell with micro transactions

What MS meant: you will compete with others to submit something to us, we'll decide if its marketable, and do with it what we want.

2. #1, keep that in mind when listening to things at this year's E3. Prepare to be lied to.
