Should Sony introduce Sackboys as an equivalent to Nintendo's 'Mii's and Microsoft's Avatars

Although I am not a huge fan of avatars or 'Mii's it seems to add a sense of personality or a way to express oneself without having to make people read your about me section. Now Sony does have the Home Avatars, but they personally I find them to realistic and rigid. They look a lot like the mannequins you find at clothing stores. They seem to be missing the charm Mii's and Avatars have and maybe even Sackboy's have...?

I think from here on, Sony should totally use the Sackboy as more than just LittleBigPlanet (I believe, it has appeared in Hot Shots Golf??..)
Not only would the customizable Sackboy be a good avatar for PSN users, but it would also add personality to a lot of the Move games that are out currently, which in my opinion lack a certain level of personality.

Don't get me wrong, I think Sports Champions is great, i am not a huge fan of the stereotypical characters which you play as.

So what do you guys think? Should Sony use the Sackboy to compete with Nintendo's Mii and Microsoft's Avatars? And should they introduce them in games that are more than just LittleBigPlanet?

hmm, IDK, Sackboy wouldn't fit right with some games (like Sports Champions). I, personally, would love to see a more open avatar creation (even in Home) that is similar to superstar creation in the Smackdown games (TONS of options). As it stands, nothing really allows for me to make fat bodies like my own except for that one. You can also exaggerate some of the appearance as well so it's not too, well, realistic. Home avatars would be great if they were more like that.

Between Crash Bandicoot and Sackboy !!

Sackboy wins.

but I think someone or something else would fit the bill better than those two.

I would say Chuck Norris :P

I like the sackboy idea it would be fun to personalize the little guy. But i also like the idea of maybe something like the playstation home avatar. But Chuck Norris would also be awesome. What about Mr. T

No stupid avatars, please. I've always appreciated that Sony has some class and doesn't put bubblegum colors and silly balloon characters all over the UI.

I love Sackboy as a character but I do have to agree there are some situations he probably wouldn't fit into. It'd be cool to have a more open editor like what Jay mentioned that might allow us to create a Sackboy Avatar or something like what ModNation has.


Overall I don't really mind the avatars, they're a bit of a novelty but it's cool to unlock things in games for them to use.
