    The Playstation 4 UI should allow you to choose a picture you want for avatar.....

    without having to sign in using facebook? Why can't you plug in your thumb drive and pick a picture from your own file to place on the playstation 4? Will sony update this sometime??

    I just made a dummy facebook account for my PS4. So I can upload pics and videos without cluttering my actual facebook.

    I don't think they will, to avoid all the messiness. Hey if it's good enough for Facebook, it has to be for Sony right? They need the same option for Twitter tho

    Main point why Sony would not do it would be a legal one. Because others can see it Sony would have to by law check the images are withing the PSN terms and normal laws. Its a lot of man power and legal problems and big ones in the EU.

    So just use Facebook, gives the same effect and someone else foots the costs of over seeing it (Facebook).

    There are enough gaping A-holes on the Internet as it is. This is why gamers can't have nice things.

    You could do this with the 360 for a while. Don't know if you still can but the reason I believe is that you never know what people will take a pic of as their avatar. I took an extreme close up of my "little head", not the whole thing just a partial. You couldn't tell what it was unless I told you. Almost looked like a tongue!!! Was funny as hell for a couple of days!!!

    Id like an option to make my facebook picture visible but not my fb name.

    Right now I have synced my fb account, I can see my picture and my name but only locally I think. The other option is to share both.

    Yeah, it's still a mess right now. Hopefully they get it sorted in the coming months.
