Two major issues here:
1) Since the PS Store update yesterday (11/06/2012), I can no longer select my "purchased" PSN ID avatars, none of them show up, only the default Avi's are shown in the selection menu.
2) There are a large quantity of PSP/PS Vita ID Avatars mixed in now with the PS3 Avatars. I purchased one yesterday on accident as it was mixed in with all the PS3 avatars.
Solved! Go to Solution.
OK, so I called Customer Support. The support agent I spoke to said "sony is aware of the Avatar issue, and everyone is experiencing it right now". I have since discovered that is not accurate. My confidence in the support agent is further lowered by the fact that she didn't seem to understand what a PSN Avatar is and kept calling it "games" even after I corrected her a number of times.
What should my next course of action be?
For those who end up having the "Avatars not showing up" issue, I was able to re-download the one I wanted to have it show up.
It''s pretty rediculous that there isn't a better way to access and review our purchases than to re-look them up if they were neither downloaded at the time of purchase, or in this case, the PS3 somehow lost a portion of downloaded content.
Makes me think that things that are no longer listed in the store, for what ever reason, become wasted money.
