Is it going to be free for PS Plus subscribers?


+ mastorofpuppetz on January 25th, 2011 at 6:36 am said:

Charging for Avatars? LMAO, they should be free to everyone. Sony, PSn is way behind the times. UPDATE IT. Live has custom avatars, party chat, voice chat, etc………..


+ Saber216 on January 25th, 2011 at 6:41 am said:

No Metal Gear……STILL!!! Still no Tekken. And how about throwin’ in some DC Universe Online Characters!!


+ mastorofpuppetz on January 25th, 2011 at 6:52 am said:

PS: PS3 has been out 4 years, and the official free avatars are still a joke, get with it Sony.


+ mastorofpuppetz on January 25th, 2011 at 7:05 am said:

Paying for plus and they cannot even give you tiny avatar pics for free, PS3 a great system, terrible online service.


+ Kitary on January 25th, 2011 at 7:19 am said:

More NISA or Aksys Games Avatars Please~


+ Jamzz14 on January 25th, 2011 at 7:19 am said:

Im guessing none of these avatars will ever come to the EU store. ever.


+ SmooshyKing on January 25th, 2011 at 7:33 am said:

I could make that whole colletion of avatars in about fifteen minutes. There’s not a single one that isn’t just a cut and paste from some promotional shot we’ve all seen a million times.

But I love that Sony charges for them. If enough suckers buy this kind of junk, then it keeps PSN free for the rest of us.


+ SmooshyKing on January 25th, 2011 at 7:35 am said:


Sony isn’t even bothering to try to compete anymore (on system features). They’ve thrown in the towel.


+ Glacier928 on January 25th, 2011 at 7:50 am said:

Is Quorra the only Tron: Evolution avatar? I want an avatar for Anon! lol

Either way, massive avatar update! Can we get this every week? :)


+ NeoHumpty on January 25th, 2011 at 8:02 am said:

Eh, I’d only pay for an avatar that I created and got approved by Sony.


+ Frejim on January 25th, 2011 at 8:12 am said:

any bundles??
wanna get some AC Brotherhood and RDR ones


+ BigBoss712 on January 25th, 2011 at 8:21 am said:

Those are actually good, MORE plz. ;)


+ djspinal on January 25th, 2011 at 8:43 am said:

Didnt grand theft auto iv come out like 2 yrs ago?


+ SeanScythe on January 25th, 2011 at 8:44 am said:

Can we get some real Anime Avatars? One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, DBZ, etc I mean we have games for these but no avatars. I would love to have a Luffy Avatar, and there was a One Piece game on PS2 so it’s in the PS family. Please see if this can happen down the road.


+ Arcadian_Rebel on January 25th, 2011 at 9:13 am said:

We should be able to create custom avatars as well as have our Home character on our profile!


+ chaosgrid on January 25th, 2011 at 9:29 am said:

still no Demon’s Souls dynamic theme or avatars. buh…


+ ykiki5 on January 25th, 2011 at 9:34 am said:

Still don’t understand why premium avatars can only be used on one account. My kids would love some new avatars, but as a parent, only MY account can actually be used to buy things.

Hence I can’t actually buy avatars for them. Who’s the dunce who thought that one up???


+ Nepraos on January 25th, 2011 at 9:41 am said:

I really like the avatar selections PSN’s got nowadays. My favorite selections come from the Capcom games. I have a couple Darkstalker avatars, Megaman, Street Fighter Alpha (Oh my goodness Mika) and the newly added Rival Schools avatars. I’m currently using the Akira (helmet) avatar…it rocks.

I tend to spend whatever change I have left in my wallet after purchasing whatever game or add-on from the PSN store. Usually, I’d end up with something ranging around the $1.50 mark with change, and would use it to buy 3 avatars. Fifty cents a pop isn’t gonna hurt, so why not switch it up every now and then?


+ Nepraos on January 25th, 2011 at 9:48 am said:


I thought the same thing as my nephew plays on my PS3 sometimes, and he really wanted the Megaman avatar when he saw mine. This is how I found out your same problem, but then I remembered that sells PSN avatars (some, not all).

If you have an Amazon account, then it’s probably your best way you can purchase one for another PSN ID. All you have to do is purchase from Amazon, then they’ll send you a code. You then use that code to redeem on PSN, using the account you want that avatar to be used on. If you choose to go this route, then I highly suggest that you triple check your code when writing it down. One wrong letter or number could render your code invalid.


+ SN00PY746 on January 25th, 2011 at 10:07 am said:

Lol. “Free”. 49 Cents is quite affordable. ^_^


+ Velzorn on January 25th, 2011 at 10:13 am said:

Finally and thank you!!! Please continue to do this, especially for the big title games. I absolutely don’t understand your timing with avatars though. Why not have them available the week of a big game launch or the week after, when gamers are excited about a particular game and would gladly purchase a avatar? Why wait many months later when most have moved to another game hoping for that avatar to be available? I’m not saying people don’t want these ones but I can guarantee more people would have purchased them if they were available to the games launch. Think about it. I’m sure others will agree.

Wish list:

Mass Effect 2 – We need avatars of these great characters, N7, Cerebus ect.

Dead Space (2) – Isaac, Suits, Markers, Necromorphs, ect.

Killzone (2, 3) – Helghast, ISA, all the classes ect.

Marvel vs Capcom 3 – I require a Deadpool avatar lol.


+ FormerPSfan on January 25th, 2011 at 10:32 am said:

poorly designed avatar from mostly tired old games, quorra is the only one from a game less than 3 months old aside from whatever new characters in ACB. I agree with the majority of the comments here with the exception of the obvious sony staff trolls posting their marketing hype n attacking the paying customers. I’m tired of pointing out whats blindingly obvious for the world to see, namely Sony & SCE specifically has massively failed to live up to its own hype. but instead of trying to fixe the myriad of problems they lazily resort to more lame tripe.

but enough of that, back to the avatars. What is abundantly clear but so far unstated is these are nothing more than a cash grab. Just as poorly done, late and badly implented as all the others. Its designed to soak up the loose change from overpriced DLC & home virtual items. Its sloppy seconds that sony tossess out occasionally in a lame attempt to fool us that they’re actually “doing something”


+ megamixer on January 25th, 2011 at 10:37 am said:

Paying money, no matter how little, to turn yourself into an advertisement for somebody elses product is never affordable. Back in the day real games would use that $0.50 to get a couple credits out of an arcade game, not on a cheap cut & paste image from a game in some vague attempt to “stand out” on the internets.


+ tbon3man on January 25th, 2011 at 10:52 am said:

Yeah I think it’s time for Sony to step their game up and have fun avatars like xbox live they are way cooler and more interactive.imagine a custom made kratos or nathan drake costomizable to our own liking.Off the chain!!!!!


+ AcesZERO-RAZGRIZ on January 25th, 2011 at 11:02 am said:

why not let us use our trophies as avatars?
you wouldnt even have to put them in the account management section
just have us hit triangle on a trophy we’ve unlocked and have a “Use as Avatar?” button there

some american football trophies would be great
(or maybe just the Steelers? lol)


+ iTofuMan on January 25th, 2011 at 11:18 am said:

You know if they were smart, why not put PSN Avatars in the game itself as unlockables along side of buying them on the psn? that way most games should have them when released, and people who dont like buying them can earn them.


+ Egarth on January 25th, 2011 at 11:54 am said:

Awesome! I have been waiting for an Ezio avatar. I hope there is a Brotherhood bundle, I can’t pick just one or two! I will have my new avatar on by tomorrow.


+ Ethereal on January 25th, 2011 at 11:56 am said:

Keep em coming! Thanks!


+ BlueBl1zzard on January 25th, 2011 at 12:38 pm said:

Sweet! Definitely getting the Assassin’s Creed doctor avatar!


+ mikedo2007 on January 25th, 2011 at 12:56 pm said:

More Avatars, more choice for me. :)


+ destroyergx on January 25th, 2011 at 1:22 pm said:

+ xCaliberr on January 25th, 2011 at 2:40 pm said:



+ halowars7 on January 25th, 2011 at 2:54 pm said:

the AC Brotherhood ones all look sooo good!


+ footballrule on January 25th, 2011 at 3:17 pm said:

Wish they were free. I honestly see no point on buying avatars, lol. Cool to see GTA4 avatars, though very late.


+ AceBeeDee on January 25th, 2011 at 4:11 pm said:

i cant wait until i can get an avatar that is a pic of a Bee or a letter D. these are nice additions but, there should be MORE. and i mean THOUSANDS.


+ digsy on January 25th, 2011 at 5:08 pm said:

what about the pro avatars……. like the kratos pro avatar how do we get the pro ones?


+ Lasani on January 25th, 2011 at 7:01 pm said:

These avatars are not available in MY PSN yet…. *sob*


+ GARSTER on January 26th, 2011 at 12:26 am said:

They look great ! , Really hope they are free with playstation plus .


+ MCoelho1997 on January 27th, 2011 at 5:43 am said:

What about Europe?
We don’t get new avatara options for like YEARS.


+ The_Grey__Warden on January 27th, 2011 at 11:47 am said:

Dragon age avatars please


+ dirtyd89 on January 27th, 2011 at 12:48 pm said:

These are pretty cool.

I want to see some avatars for the following games someday.

Metal Gear Solid, Tekken, Killzone 3, Resistance 2 & 3, 3D Dot Game Heroes, God of War 1-3, FFXIII, Marvel VS Capcom 3, Mass Effect 2 & 3, etc.
(Don’t know how the whole licensing thing works but make it happen.)

Seriously at this point just put avatars for every game when it’s released the more variety and options the better.

Still I’m happy with my Uncharted avatar has you can see by my icon.



+ fah_q139 on January 27th, 2011 at 1:44 pm said:

I’m totally on board with the Kevin Butler avatar idea.
