The lights are on
Fans of My Little Pony can finally proclaim their appreciation for the show on Xbox Live.
Today, Microsoft added a number of My Little Pony avatar items to the Avatar Store including shirts, hoodies, and a Rainbow Dash pet. The items fall in line with the typical pricing of clothing and pets on Xbox Live. You can check out the full list here.

Our TakeAvatar items still feel like one of the biggest wastes of money among all of the offerings on Xbox Live, but we have a big community of My Little Pony fans here on Game Informer. We're big fans of you guys, so we wanted to make sure you knew these were available.

We all saw this coming, none of you can say otherwise...
If you aren't an MLP fan, just move on and don't get the item. I personally have no problem with the show but I don't ever buy avatar items so...eh.
Move on and get over it. This clearly isn't the worst thing Microsoft has done lately.
Only having one of the characters available as a prop item seems kinda half-a**ed, but this is still cool. I'll shamefully admit that I've bought *a couple* of avatar items before, and I would probably buy a Twilight pet if it were for sale.
Between this, plush, and the weird sonic fandom, these are some of the most unsettling things on the internet. At least I'll know who to sort out from my friends list on Xbox Live. Boy I hope there isn't any of this crap on PSN when I make the jump later this year.
Wow one awesome thing i can say about xbox now
Fluttershy is best pony btw
Ordinarily I'd be quite ecstatic about this, but I sold my Xbox 360 off last week to get store credit for the PS4. Ah well.
I don't have an xbox, but its nice that xbox bronies now have the option to buy these. Its a shame there isn't more variety though.
I'll be honest here, I was expecting a lot of hate in the comments when I clicked on this article. I was pleasantly surprised to find it more civilized. The fact that Microsoft did this shows that they at least pay attention to cultural trends, even if they potentially turn away most of their support from fans with unpopular decisions. *cough*alwayson*cough*
If you dont like it, dont get it, its as simple as that
People need to stop with the Brony hate. I'm not one myself, but I have seen some of the episodes, and find it to be a pretty good show. They have just as much right to nerd out about their favorite show just as much as anyone else. *looking at GoT, Doctor Who, Avatar, Firefly, etc. fans*
