New Avatars

Idea 213 | Posted in , by | March 17, 2010

Add more avatars or enable additional selections based on Trophy level.

We have released a total of 315 premium avatars and 17 avatar bundles since they first appeared on the PlayStation Store on December 22, 2009.

I would much prefer custom avatars


Neobara  |  March 17th, 2010 at 1:41 pm

Trophy levels need some sort of reward in general. Needs to be suggested by someone. They need to take the RPG “level-up” concept for the Trophies a step further.


DriftDevil  |  March 17th, 2010 at 1:43 pm

i agree with idlehacker; custom avatars would be nice


Butters360  |  March 17th, 2010 at 1:44 pm

I would like to see trophies start unlocking avatars. Like Uncharted 2 and Demon’s Souls.


Keyo321  |  March 17th, 2010 at 1:45 pm

custom avatars would be nice, but not going to be practical due to moderation involvement.


unworthyBOZO  |  March 17th, 2010 at 1:52 pm

I really want custom avatars.


KatanaStrikes  |  March 17th, 2010 at 1:58 pm

Gosh yes, this is one of the most embarrassing things we still haven’t got. Speed this up will ya. Jees!


xX_SolRac_Xx  |  March 17th, 2010 at 1:59 pm

Totally agreed. We need more avatars.


giobbs  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:00 pm

i really want more free avatars ๐Ÿ˜€


Zoryu_of_Setsuna  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:00 pm

I agree, we need more variety and selection of avatars.


Daemius  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:09 pm

Much as I like my monkey I’d rather see some other avatars based on exclusive PS games like Heavy Rain, FF pre XIII, MGS, Xenosaga/Xenogears, etc.


Microshock  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:50 pm

Well this is going to happen regardless.


supafuzz  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:52 pm

I would like to be able to use my trophies as avatars. I also would like to see unlockable avatars similar to the emblems in COD:MW2.


explosive78  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:59 pm

There should be SOME new free avatars. I mean we have waited this long I think we deserve it.


erojas388  |  March 17th, 2010 at 2:59 pm

letting users use our own pictures as avatars would be good


ADR143  |  March 17th, 2010 at 3:35 pm

we need free avatars also.

custom ones are the best idea


Muyy  |  March 17th, 2010 at 3:37 pm

I’d like some new avatars, mostly free ones




NoobianGod  |  March 17th, 2010 at 3:48 pm

I felt totally cheated by the avatars that were new…and at a charge to obtain? Come on!

Foul! Free avatars for the win Sony!

It IS free advertising! Your fanbase that chooses the avatar can speak the games praises over their friends PSN list when asked about it.

This just makes good business sense. I’m very surprised this has taken so long despite other focuses.


yoghost  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:23 pm

Guys check out my idea use playstation home avatars as psn avatars i believe its better because you can customize your playstation home avatar


ZamagnaxD  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:28 pm

Lots of avatars or custom avatars, that would be awesome


Jumplion  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:31 pm

I like the idea of Trophy-tied in avatars, gives us a bigger reason to go after that platinum trophy.


Bowdz  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:35 pm

This really should have happened years ago. Avatars should be updated weekly (or at the latest monthly).


ursinhomalvado  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:39 pm

“I would much prefer custom avatars”

I agree!


nino1911  |  March 17th, 2010 at 4:55 pm

oh god yes free ones please i want a peace sign



tuko  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:04 pm

I had complained about this in the Forums a long time ago… and they actually have started adding more avatars like MAG and LBP on the PSN.

But I think there should be more generic avatars being added along with game related ones. The Home avatar idea is good too.


Sizzle060  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:09 pm

I really would like a more diverse selection of avatars..we have been asking for new avatars since launch and we’ve only got a couple *Premium* avatars,where are the free ones? Custom avatars will more than likely never happen everyone, so please stop suggesting it. =/


ski_bumm  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:12 pm

No avatars for your biggest franchiess? Big fail, Sony. And you shouldn’t be charging for Sackboy’s face to appear in peoples’ profiles. It’s FREE ADVERTISING and marketing for your games!

We need trophies for Uncharted 2, Infamous, more Kratos/God of War, FFXIII, etc etc.! Be creative guys, it’s not hard to put together a 68×68 icon.


ski_bumm  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:13 pm

By trophies I mean avatars. See, you got me so mad I’m dyslexic.


zKAPOWz  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:23 pm

AND MAKE THEM FREE! god knows you owe use for making us use the [DELETED] avatars we’ve been stuck with for years now.


queen_valentine  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:28 pm

I would like custom avatars. Or at least a MUCH wider selection of free avatars! ๐Ÿ™‚


pixel_geist  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:35 pm

MORE AVATARS. Be they premium, or included w/ game upon purchase.


luvsanimals07  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:36 pm

custom avatars and free avatars ๐Ÿ™‚


ppbobby  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:41 pm

You guys really think youll get custom avatars? Be realistic here, were NOT getting custom ones.

For many reasons, mainly sony can make money selling avatars


MrBeatdown  |  March 17th, 2010 at 5:52 pm

Sony could make money selling us the ability to have a custom avatar. Just about every forum on the planet has the ability. I don’t see why Sony couldn’t do it.


Rofldood  |  March 17th, 2010 at 6:04 pm

What happened to this? In one of their firmware videos they said there was going to be hundreds of avatars flooding in, and yet there has only been 23 since. That was in the video that introduced dynamic themes


FaSeCeX  |  March 17th, 2010 at 6:27 pm

they should do weekly or monthly contests with the 3 best user submitted avatars being used..some of the avatars sony comes up with are just flat out LAME sometimes/most-times


Shredfan777  |  March 17th, 2010 at 6:39 pm

Custom avatars would be great, or more game related avatars to promote well, games! perhaps simple avatars for free, and custom for a price? I really can’t believe how small the number has remained for avatars since release, the most bland, not sony, game, playstation related things in my life! Who honestly wants to represent themselves as an electrical outlet, honestly?


GameAngry  |  March 17th, 2010 at 7:14 pm

Not at the top of my list but the idea of unlocking them with trophies is interesting.

Then I couldn’t be angry about trophies being completely worthless.


Dodgerblue42  |  March 17th, 2010 at 8:04 pm

if you have custom avatars you’ll end up seeing a bunch of low res pictures. great idea but it doesn’t work.


Lil_Mermaid_Girl  |  March 17th, 2010 at 8:30 pm

Every trophy image that you have unlocked should be usable as an avatr, plain and simple. Then Sony can still sell avatars on the store that are cool looking.


TKO236  |  March 17th, 2010 at 8:49 pm

Rather than just new free avatars contact some Game Developers to create some avatars for the PSN Store like I want a Bioshock Avatar ohhhh soo badly ๐Ÿ˜


FrozoneUSMC  |  March 17th, 2010 at 8:57 pm

We need a lot more avatars than we have right now. This is kinda embarrassing with Playstation Home getting a lot of attention, but we can’t get a better graphic to chose from people actually see all the time.


extreme_punisher  |  March 17th, 2010 at 9:27 pm

Is it possible to make it like Xbox has there Avatars? Profile with Avatar.


Neoness39  |  March 17th, 2010 at 9:28 pm

I think we should be able to take a picture of ourselves or anything else to make a avatar. Not just the ones provided.


jimmyfoxhound  |  March 17th, 2010 at 9:33 pm

It’s mind boggling that a stupid thing like Yahoo chat has a billion ways to customize an avatar and a major videogame player like Sony limits the 30+ million users of the PSN to an embarrassing small number of pathetic looking avatars.. a pine cone?? a duck? A TOOTHBRUSH?? So incredibly lame!! What is the hold up here?


mew_frenger  |  March 17th, 2010 at 10:01 pm

yees! y dont they bring it out?! ppl is waiting in line to buy…


Mr_Evo  |  March 17th, 2010 at 10:17 pm

Well apart from the “FEW” that are on the PSN store, the avatars are embarrassing. This should be at the top of Sony’s list. We have a great system that we can theme with wallpapers and icons, but are way behind others systems when it comes to avatars. I mean i have family and friends who have other systems, and when we talk about games and hardware i hide my head in shame when the subject comes to avatars lol lol. So for the love of God Sony, sort this out please.
