My avatar doesn't shows up in the XMB, I just get the square smiley face avatar, but when I click on my profile it does show my avatar. And it's not only my avatar that I don't see, a few of my friends avatar's don't show up either, but are shown when I click on their profile. Kinda weird, this has been going on for quite a while now, not sure why though, anyone else have the same issue? It has worked before from when I first got my PS3 until whenever this issue started occuring. Changing avatars does not help.
