Here are some rough concepts i made up, with the direction I think sony are going to take with the unpopular grey friend cards, integrating them as 'Premium Avatars'
I figured it would seem a bit of a rip off to just pay for new small pictures, thus I think that they will incorporate the entire card instead of just a small picture.
This would be a great way to market upcomming games and further integrate the IP's into the userbase.
I left in the current grey boring design in as a direct comparison.
Bear in mind these were just made for fun.
Feedback appreciated thanks!
