    (About Avatars) Is it safe to say...?

    Is it safe to say we will be able to do something similar to what you can do on steam, and post relatively any picture you want as your profile picture/avatar?

    Attachment 5142

    Considering i believe i heard you can link your facebook profile (or something like that) to your ps4 and therefore put that picture there, is it safe to say we can create a profile, put any picture we want, and then transfer that to our ps4 so that we can put any picture we want, or am i missing something here?

    I would hope so. There certainly shouldn't be any hardware constraints user side, so if anything yes.

    I'd assume so as long as it's not deemed offensive. I'm sure there will be a report abuse items on there, so no pictures of you giving your girlfriend a Dirty Sanchez or anything.

    I'd be surprised if you couldn't. Then again, I was thinking the same thing about the PS3 so who knows..

    In their demos and stuff, whenever it showed a friend's avatar pop up, they were usually using their actual pics. So, I'd say they are allowing custom avatars. I hope I can finally use my Piccolo avatar.

    I just hope they don't force you to use Facebook or such to be able to add your own pictures as avatars. It should be as simple as adding the picture directly from your PS4 HDD, IMO.

    Or from your media server, how you can stream or upload stuff from your PC to your PS3 now.

    They would be dropping out the Avatars out of the PSN Store, so I'm not so confident they'll do it but I hope they do let us put up our own pictures.

    Well i'd imagine they would add that. I mean, if we can link a fb profile why couldn't we put the damn picture the way we want it without linking one ya know? That being said, like taz mentioned Im sure they'll let us do what we want, but there will be some censorship against dirty pics names etc.

    Might be like how names and PSN-ID's work on PS4. You get a library to choose from that goes together with you're PSN-ID and then you can choose whatever you to show towards IRL/face friends.

    Wishlist: inFAMOUS, SotC 2, Jade Cocoon Reboot, Oni Reboot, the next JRPG, Wasteland 2, next Obsidian Fallout, Fallout 4, Project Eternity, ND's PS4 game

    I believe each psn id will actually have two avatars. The main being similar to how it is today, and the other is a personal pic. I have to remember where I got that info though...

    PS4 Launch Edition
    PS3 60GB (Upgraded to 500GB)
    Phenom II X4 955, HD 7770 1GB, 6GB RAM

    If you add my PSN say you're from PSU or I might delete it!

    Custom avatars would be great but it would likely get out of hand with the offensive material. Not to mention if you have custom avatars you are putting yourself at a disadvantage because you likely will not sell any avatars. Why would someone pay for something when they can make it themselves.

    I haven't payed for avatars this gen, and I really don't think I will next gen either. I use the free ones or the ones I get when buying a game. Right now I have Joel (The Last of Us) as my avatar, which I got when I preordered the game.

    The Design Corner would probably get flooded with user requests (me included)!

    I know not many people do. I brought one. But it does take away some revenue regardless of how small it is. I would love to see them but Sony would only lose by doing this. They would have to police the images for obscene material and they are taking a small hit by doing it. Just wouldn't make any sense from a business standpoint since they already charge for some avatars.
