    Ugh? Trollface on PSN???

    My actual avatar picture is of Nathan Drake, just logged on about 10mins ago to see this.
    Has this happened to anybody else? It just seems really odd.

    Hacking attempt I would say. Some one who can access the avatar settings modified the image, or maybe its the image that is supposed to show up when the real avy fails to load (highly unlikely sony will pick a troll face)

    This was my initial thought aswell, there's been a few times where my avatar profile picture hasn't loaded up but this is the first time I've seen a trollface appear.

    Best solution I can think is to contact Sony.

    They should make the trollface an avatar

    Yeah I suggest you contact Sony too. But the thing i'm wondering about is: How did they manage to get a custom image (the troll face) onto the PS3 to become a avatar? Well almost anyways. It's definitely signs of hacking.

    That's messed up. Someone must be hacking you or something.

    What Sony should show us is When we last logged in on the account and from what IP.
    Some online things show that sort of details nowadays.

    That is actually pretty funny. Shame the entire avatar is not the trollface. Would be fun to have it.

    I rang up but they told me I had to report this online, but they did check themselves to see if my account has been logged in by anywhere else using the PS3's they couldn't give me any information on IP addresses, though.
    The only explanation the guy could give me was it might of been the server having errors, I don't think thats it because having an image of a trollface is way to specific.

    Even though it's a big problem for you and some, I say you leave it for now and enjoy your games. Maybe even play a joke to your friends if they can see it
    Sony's clearly useless when it comes to this situation, so just look at the bright side.

    But if it indeed was hacked, as it looks like, and his CC info is on there, then it's no laughing matter.
    Thanks to THUGGEDOUT for the sig, The Black Wolf for the av.

    Sony's customer service is pretty terrible, had to deal with them before.

    Hey neoxthexone -- any update on this? Has Sony provided further comment? Has it happened to you again?
