So PS4 will let you create you own avatar?

11 replies 7094 views Edited Nov 12, 2013

I have read you can import your picture from facebook to use on the PS4.  Being you can use any picture as your avatar on facebook is this a way to create your own avatar now?

That would make perfect sense. We know you can use your FaceBook pic, so whatever that is would be used. So, yes! Also, you can use your PlayStation Camera to take pic's for your profile pic.

If you link your Facebook account you can use a custom photo.Also you can use your real name and set who can view your profile like friend,everyone or no one.

Nope, it's been confirmed only way to use your real pic is to import it from facebook, can't take a picture with the ps4 camera to use as a avatar.

Is it only Facebook? I'd rather link it to Twitter.
