Yes you read that right, a much needed update to the PSN avatar selection is indeed coming soon. Our inside sources have told us that we can expect new avatars for many SCEA titles in the coming months.
In response to Don Pinguino (comment #27) on the PS.Blog, requesting some Sackboy avatars, Mark Valledor writes:
LOL…we’re actually working on that as we speak.
Our source also tells us we can expect some avatars for Resistance 2, Killzone 2, as well as other SCEA titles.
The PlayStation Network has been past due for some new avatars for over a year now, but ever since us.playstation.com and the PS.Bloghad the PSN portable ID’s implemented, the necessity of a larger variety of avatars has become much more apparent. I for one am happy to know that there is a chance in the near future, that I might not see 1/4th of my friends list have the same avatar that I use.
