It's not the premise of complaining about selection of free items from a free service.  It's the promise that Sony was going to add additional avatars to the network with the implementation of the dynamic themes.  The dynamic theme support has been tepid at best, and there have been 0 avatars added.  I agree with you it's certainly not a deal breaker, and I don't pay for avatars on the other service either, but it's the availability of said items that's being questioned.

I totally agree and what sucks the most is the other service is up to date and current with their avatars sony needs tokeep their world on the dynamice themes and avatar support pretty much.

@jackson32 who wouldn't want a solid snake, big boss, raiden, a metal gear; sack boy/girl, killzone 2, call of duty (soap, price, ghost), uncharted 1 and 2 characters, not just drake, assassin's creed 2, infamous, batman arkham asylum, ... avatars? you get the idea. also like the article mentions, there are avatars that are outdated... like mine, the hellghasts from killzone 2 look much better than the killzone 1 hellghasts. if you don't want new or improved avatars then you are not obligated to change yours, however most of us would. (free service is just an excuse, cause no matter how crappy the avatars of sony's competition are, they can still customize their avatars for free or upgrade them at a cost.) in the end, its safe to say that anyone of us can or could create a single avatar in just a couple of minutes or less... its not hard at all.

who cares, the lack of avatars has never affected my connection to the PSN. As long as my online gaming experince is not affected, i could careless if we have two avatars to choose from.

Ok it's obvious that you don't want them. I get that, I do. But there are many of us who want to put up a sig to show who we are, what our interests are, and are willing to pay for that ability. Our avatars are the only way we can identify each other as individuals, and represent ourselves as members of the online community. To Sony we're just numbers/customers/Money. But to each other were friends/rivals/gamers, right? Would you walk outside your house with toilet paper trailing from your heal? Or wearing green spandex? Would you feel that look properly represented you? How about wearing a bunch of clothes from the salvation army? That's what these avatars are like. And as I said, I'M WILLING TO PAY GOOD MONEY.
