What sony needs to do is allow us to upload our own avatars. The way they go about dsoing this is simple. They just add a report feature for offensive pictures. If its reported a certain amount of times (Lets say 5) then it gets checked and if it isn't offensive nothing happens.
Custom avater would not work the reason being is
1. to many people would put up offence pictures and or aduit content
2. copy right some people will try to upload gamer charadear's as avater such as games from Tomb Raider or uncharted, GT5 and more
3. kids use the ps3 as will so they might try to upload something inmature
this is why many site wont let you upload your own avater to there site
it's Sony's punishment for bad grammer and spelling.
and overuse of question marks and exclamation points.Message Edited by KYColtsFan on 11-22-2008 02:33 PM
Before criticizing others for their spelling, check yours first.
It's grammar, not grammer.
Yes, we need a gate keeper for avatar content. I mean you allow that kind of thing, who knows next people will be saying whatever offensive things they want in an online game... oh wait..
As long as the threat of boobies and other birds like it exist. I doubt Sony will allow us to use them...
But truth be told, I haven't really seen anyone else's icons unless I go to the friend's list...I don't even pay most any attention because it's usually either Kratos, a smiley, an elvish chick with blue hair, or some bizarre logo.
