Please explain the purpose of multiple avatars.

31 replies 483 views Edited May 14, 2013

Okay, if you are one who wants to get the most out of home, I understand about having both a male and female avatar.  Its the ones that create avatar, after avatar, all with their own accounts.  That it what I am having a difficult time understanding.

 

In my opinion I would get confused.

Are you referring to the use of alternate accounts rather than avatars tied to one account that are strikingly difference in appearance?

Maybe what you're referring to is like what I do, when I make a couple different avatars to go with certian outfits. It's just for the sake of creativity,I'm sure. Variaty and such, so you're not stuck with the same avatar all the time. You can switch out who you'll use for the next few weeks, then switch again. Nothing to get confused over, if you're not planning to keep one set avatar all the time.

I enjoy using multiple accounts and logging onto Home with them at the same time. I do a lot of my photo shoots with two avatars.

My Jill account also has no friends. It's nice to log on at times and simply roam around. :smileyhappy:

Many Home users enjoy doing photo shoots or creating video with the LOOT camera. Multiple accounts allow a user to do this without outside help. One Avatar/aaount runs the camera. The others act as the model/actors. Check out PSTalent.com. Obviously it requires multiple PS3s running at the same time.
