Seriously its about freaking time. We've been stuck with the same avatars for about a year now. The last time they were updated was when Haze came out which is just ludicrous.
Yup. Totally agree.
Yep about time, especially when you think about how easy this is, to add some more avatars.. Looking forward to this.
Why doesn't Sony just allow us to upload custom avatars from our hard drives along with some sort of approval process so that people who try putting up pictures of penises get banned? I have some paintings I'd like to use >:l
In all fairness we dont really know how easy it is to add more avatars, but the fact we havent had any new ones in a year is unacceptable. Avatars should be personal. I have about 4 people on my list all with the same avatars which is annoying. They should be downloadable on the PS Store in packs, some free and some paid for. Just like themes.
old news, we already new they were working on Avatars. And ye, its REEALLLYY about time, if they just let us use our own avatars, they wouldnt need to update more since everyone would have like a diff avatar anyway. Really, it cant be that hard, like a really small-low res pic and if they are worried about "adult pics", well isnt that the same as lisening to someone mouth off on a mic in an online game? or sending you pics in a message? really there is no diff, if people accept terms and conditions for online and accept friend invites then whats the problem !! EDIT: lol so they are adding like 1 new avatar for Killzone, 1 for infamous, couple for LBP ? i thought they were going to add loads more, this just means everyone will be using these now, which just doesnt fix the problem of everyone using the same avatars! i have like 10 people on my friends list with the same avatar as me.
whatever lol i've been rocking the KZ2 avatar since it hit the network. i have no problem sporting an avatar for a game that rocks. and i won't change it until a better one comes out.
About time I changed my blue Smiley face avatar. Smileys are forever but with new avatars, hmmm..
y do people complain so much?? its not like they are charging you for online.....
yes, totally it is about time, but it is a free service
if we didnt complain, we wouldnt have DivX support, be able to add 100 friends, send larger files to eachother, still have the awful old store interface, no enhancements to the web browser, no in-game Xmb, no trophies, no ability to sort files into folders, no text chat room, no added avatars, no new power features like turning controls off after 10 min or turn console off after an hour etc, no themes/wallpapers, no playlists. All of these things are a result of us demanding more from the service, if you were given a ps3 with the origonal FW, i would like to see you still say "stop complaining, your not paying for it".
Just let the developers provide PSN Avatars in their game discs. Why would developers do that? To promote their games, obviously. If I want a Raiden Avatar, I would have to buy MGS5. If I want a Nissan Skyline Avatar, I would have to buy GT5. Etc. If I had an Avatar of Sackboy, I would basically be promoting LBP to all my friends. If I had an Avatar of Big Daddy, I would basically be promoting Bioshock to all my friends. Of course, this also means developers should offer the best looking Avatars to compete with other developers. If your Avatars don't stand out enough, then people on the friends list won't really notice or care. The better the Avatars, the better the promotion. Etc. Developers give us free Avatars along with their games, we give them free promotion! Win-win situation for everyone! ^_^ But of course, Sony will still be providing their own selections of Avatars on the PSN... but at the same sloooow pace that they have been providing for the last couple years. -_-"
I cant believe i lost a bubble for that...What a load of crap...
I don't care about avatars, I want party chat in-game and the ability to join a friend from anywhere.
Lol finally! I've been using that close up of Nathan Drake's face for almost two years now.
I think we'll be able to use pictures of our HOME Avatars soon too.
Great, my girlfriend says my Home Avatar looks like a pedophile.
omg i wish you could see my avatar it looks like a fat grey haired old child molester it's horrendous. even though i wont see that badboy for a while. being as i refuse to go to home until they bring back voice chat. HOME WITH NO VOICE CHAT IS LAME.
How about they just put custom avatars in. Either that or a representation of your Home character in the XMB.
Custom avatars has been discussed as far as I know, but your home character face as an option could be very sweet!
I been wishing this since a long time... photoshop make some cool things ^^
really. I'm still confused about allowing the internet browser to ask a user every time a plug-in is required. And why they ship a PS3 with composite cables out of the box. Nobody in the board room thought hey let's make a bundle featuring a HDMI cable/official BT headset?
what the hell is that message doing when it asked to run plug-ins? my god thats annoying when i'm trying to rock some lezbo porn. i have to push x every 2.5 minutes. can somebody explain to me why this happens. and why it can't be prevented.
YAY! I was looking for a new one the other day and got so annoyed by the same images I picked the Red mad pissed off smiley. This is good, overdue news.
Funny you mention that...I saw it the other day, and I said to myself, "I wonder why he picked the Red mad pissed off smiley." Well, now I know. Bit of a paradox though, since you actually managed find an avatar which accurately depicts your difficulty with finding an avatar. ;) This is good, long-overdue news; I've been having Kratos' intimidating eyes haunting my nightmares since launch back in 2006. Meh...who am I kidding...I'm a bit of a traditionalist (read: BORING). Odds are that I'd be hard-pressed to change him up unless something really cool comes along.
That's like me, I've had daxter for 2 and a half years now
there will be some KZ2 ones
2 years on and still using the default icon.
lol same here man. Yeah it's about time for some new ones though
I don't know why the haze avatar one is still on their. The PS3 was disgraced by Haze coming to existence :( I'd love to see some new Killzone and uncharted ones though.
When infamous gets released everyone will have the Cole avatars.
Infamous avatars please! XD
Yay I want inFamous ones :D
Xbox Sucks Avatar Please !!
How is life as a virgin? Must suck.
Hey I like my little sailboat.
They should allow PS3 owners to make avatars with their own pictures stored on the HDD.
no because then there's be all kinds of penises on my friend lists!
i just want custom avatars
and he would like to ask you some questions.
its been so dam long...i was expecting this to be an update to create custom avatars cus i really want one. I hate having the same thing as others...especially when it comes to gaming.
i dont want new avatars , i want custom ones
too many kids with d!ck avatars i'm afraid
I'm sure it's more dangerous with a wallpaper or those , or us sending them . I think they mostly just got so much to do or care so little about that detail they didnt bother yet . It's one of those odds xmb quirks , like behind able to copy multiple files , except in the save section
I want custom avatars ! The whole porn issue is stupid, at the end of the day the PS3 isnt a kiddies console, and I and all my freinds are over 18 anyway, and even though I wouldnt be using any dodgy avatars, I wouldnt be offended by anyone else's. Ive also had some people randomly send me images of porn in a messgage who have found me on the players met page, so this stuff happens anyway. And if you are offended just delete the person...Simple as that. Another suggestion would be that all sub accounts could have the ability to disable avatars. This would stop kids seeing it. This should be implented, as anyone who is under 18 and has created a PS3 Master login is breaking the rules anyway.
is totally moot. 360 has had it since day one and i hope people remember the articles about how 360 users names were getting banned just for having sexual names. there obviously is not a problem with sexual pics being used for avatars on 360 or else i guarantee we would be seeing articles on n4g about it. ps3 is alot more lenient, a friend of mines name is "ihaveaids" (not the exact name but close, he doesnt need friend requests randomly from n4g) and he isnt getting banned. either it wouldnt be a problem at all, or sony makes a way to monitor the pics being used, simple as that.
i'm fine with my Tekken one... but what they should REALLY do is allow you to use your Home avatar as your PSN avatar
Avatars we should have had by now: LBP, MGS4, Killzone 2, Call of Duty 4/World at War, Warhawk(?), God of War, more Socom ones. The point is that it's been neglected.
LOL now that the PS3 has avatars those Playstation fans that talked thrash when the 360 got em, now have to defend em. It's funny when tables turn. Why does the PS3 allways get everything late?
Why do you always say things that are completely unnecessary? The avatars for the PS3 are different from the ones for the 360.
These are what Xbox calls Gamerpics and yes the 360 has like 10:1 when it comes to selection (some for $$) not to mention you can use your avatar as a picture or if you have the Vision camera you can make your own custom picture that can be only viewed by your friends list. But I digress.. These are not Avatars like the 360 has.
Yessss, let's even turn an innocuous topic about PS3 avatars into a "my console is bestest ever" spaz-chat.
wow, Jason... way to fail epicly PSN avatars have been around since PS3 launch, they're just like Gamerpics on XBL but erm.. you wouldn't know that.. since you seem to have slipped into complete retardation as of late
Does every comment section have to be turned into 360 vs. PS3? SMH. Anyway, it's about time they updated the avatars. Like ROME said, we should get custom avatars
Please lay off the whisky .. now
This is Bull, give us custom Avatars OR Drop like 250 of them on us to give us a lot more choices, this stuff now is just plain lame a$$
LOL i have a green turd for my avatar ^_^
I'd like the feature to make my own avatar, but I guess there'd have to be some sort of 'approval system' otherwise god knows what some people would be posting pictures of! Nice to hear about some more choices coming soon though - It isn't exactly high on my list of priorities, but a touch of individuality is always welcome.
I want metal gear solid avatars!!!!!!!!!!!
That picture bears a striking resemblance to a user created image on the official PlayStation forums. http://boardsus.playstation...

i like my hippo but thanks anyway lol
we can upload our own avatars. still good news though
What is so hard about letting us pick a .jpg pic or using the EYE TOY to make a custom avatar. yeah sure they are giving us new avatars but it still doesn't allow us to be more unique. All thats going to happen is your going to see the rest of the world with new avatars cuz they're new. i've been rocking the Helgan avatar since i got my PS3 which was shortly after launch. oh i guess we still gotta wait for custom ones.
f**k dat we want custom ones or a facepic of our HOME avaters.
10 whole new avatars! Amazing! Good job Sony! Whatever. I've had the same Kratos avatar since the first day I booted up my PS3. PSN really needs an upgrade, far more than avatars.
finaly ffs they should just let us upload our own ones would be alot better
ITS ABOUT GODDAMN TIME JESUS!?
Well nobody would be complaining if they allow custom avatars!!!
