Premium Avatars Finally Coming

Well, starting today, Premium Avatars will finally be hitting the PlayStation Store. In the US, they are $0.49 each. Apparently, there will also be bundles you can purchase as well (which will range from $0.99 to $1.25). The first set will be LittleBigPlanet-themed ones, 14 in all. They are:

  • Sackboy Avatar
  • Craft Earth Avatar
  • My Moon Avatar
  • Sky Avatar
  • Arrr! Avatar
  • Marvin Avatar
  • Gloria Avatar
  • Great Blue Avatar
  • Frost-E Avatar
  • Hugo Avatar
  • Lily Pad Avatar
  • Christmas Tree Avatar
  • Santa Avatar
  • Giftboy Avatar

As far as why they are called “Premium” remains to be seen, but I suspect that they’d be, at least, animated to some degree (which would actually be pretty cool). The nice thing about this, though, is that we’re finally getting more Avatars to add to our profiles.

    PS Avatars are shit. Why the hell cant we play with our avatars in a game like the 360 and Wii. Yes PS Home is cool but it doesnt do any good if we are limited to just Home. Sony expand your horizon and make ur avatar cool.

    I don’t see why they are trying to juggle between this and items for your character in home. Pick one and go with it.

    OMG its about god damn time they started with this! I dont care if they cost money just offer them..I pay for them on my 360, so paying for them for the system that I enjoy the most dont hurt my feelings.

    Still waiting for custom avatars.

    I’d love custom avatars myself. Hopefully we’ll be able to one day (I think their biggest fear is copyright infringement and porn)
