Just downloaded this app - don't know if it is up globally and it might be that I am in the NXE update beta testers that this is available for me, can someone check/confirm...

First thing I noticed is the Avatar awards that you will get, I was awarded -

Halo Waypoint Monitor
ODST Shirt
ODST Hoodie
ODST Armor
ODST Helmet

...so people might want to check with that before purchasing any Avatar goods from the marketplace(if these items are available there that is)

Lots of fan photos and also backstory on the Halo universe.

EDIT-

The application appears in the 'My Community' section that will appear when the new NXE update is rolled out. This has Facebook/Twitter etc sections as well. The download is 139.90MB. You can also access this app by going into your 'My Xbox' and through the Game Library tab.

Once the app is launched you have a couple of options presented -

Intel - for latest Halo news and media
Career - for achievements and career milestones, waypoint awards and achievements

This will be compelling for any Halo fans for sure....heh my friends list is harrasing me right now about it :)

Heh - some of the fan made Halo armor pics a quite funny. There is one with a detached turret that I had to double take.

It looks to be for the beta testers for now as none of my mates at home(Australia) have access to it for the time being.

I have it as well...

It takes all of your stats from all Halo games and puts them in one convenient place.

It also seems that there are Waypoint Achievements... more on this when I get time. Or did I see it wrong? It looked like there are achievements for getting certain levels in the games...

I just installed way point. The monitor is pretty cool. I just got a Helmet and a t-shirt and the monitor.
