Thanks for the awesome update but I think you made a mistake on the first set of pictures that feature the
Konami-Anime Outfits. You have the picture that features the Martial Artist outfit twice.
The Kawaii Witch picture is M.I.A.

I might be the only person who is asking for this but i think it would be cool..if when we start our ps3 – for the short time we have left with it – PS HOME would start automatically..then using our avatars..we can go to our tvs or phones and play games or watch movies ..or chat on our phones..with a split screen as the camera..and also have a way where we can see our friends AVATAR..whats the point of customizing our avatars if we cant show them off..am i right?.(new idea for the PS4 i guess :p) anyway..these updates look pretty cool..sucks that i already bought a regular bike with no bunny hop tricks..but i did just figured that i can do a wheelie by holding down the box button..so I’m pretty happy with that..lol
