Use trophy icons as avatars!

57 replies 73 views Edited Jun 30, 2010

in my opinion, this would be a great idea and it would add A LOT of different avatars to the PSN.

there is a suggestion of this already on the Playstation Blog share site.

http://share.blog.us.playstation.com/ideas/2010/03/18/use-trophys-as-avatars-for-psn-id/

I already voted for this, and I was wondering what everyone else thought.

I don't think it would be any good. It would give some avatars certain desirability over others. This would make people choose an avatar based on how hard the associated trophy was to get rather than what they like based on their personality. I don't like the idea. The system that we have in place now is just fine.

i think its a good ideal,something needs to be added to the avatar system for the people that dont want to pay just to have a good picture by there name aside from the same old boring ones,maybe they could even make it so you could use pictures from your ps3 as an avatar

You don't have to pay to have a nice avatar. There are plenty of free ones that are preloaded in the software that look great. Granted, I did buy my avatar, but only because I love geometry and Heavy Rain is one of the most mature games I've played.

I certainly agree! It is certainly time to add to the old and dusty avatars! There still isn't truly one out there yet that pops out to me and fits my gaming persona.

 

 

This is a great post!

krcm0209 how could you be against the ideal,some of the avatars you can buy are more desirable then the free ones but theres no way im spending my hard earned money on a tiny picture.this would even give people more of a reason to keep playing games and go for the trophys.how could that be a bad ideal,it would just be adding to the avatar/trophy system

Is a nice idea,  specially for games that only got 1 or 2 avatar image,  a few extra avatar don't hurt anyone

Man that''s got to be the dumbest defense to why we shouldn't have trophies as avatars. Why wouldn't you choose a trophy that took you a long time to achieve. That's why it's called a trophy. I'd love to show off some of those hard SOCOM trophies that took me a while to get. Plus some games have some really nice trophy pictures.
