NaughtyDog Announces Uncharted 2: Among Thieves PSN Avatars
Today NaughtyDog has announced that new Uncharted 2: Among Thieves PSN Avatars will be released on the US PlayStation Store tomorrow for $0.49 each or $1.49 for five.
Pricing for other stores have not yet been announced, however, it is expected to be similar.
To quote: "Not too long ago we submitted a set of PSN Avatars to supplement the few existing UNCHARTED ones that have been available for quite some time.
We've just gotten word that the first of hopefully several sets of PSN Avatars has been approved for deployment on the PSN Store on Tuesday, May 25.
The PSN Avatars were created from renders we made from UNCHARTED 2 and include Nathan Drake, Elena Fisher, Victor Sullivan, Chloe Frazer, Jeff, Tenzin, Karl Schafer, Zoran Lazarevic, Harry Flynn, and an image of the Phurba dagger.
The Avatars will be available for $0.49 each or in two bundles of 5 Avatars for $1.49 per bundle. The bundle options that the PSN Team has created turns out to be a pretty good deal, adding up to a savings of nearly $1 compared to purchasing 5 avatars separately.
I only have US pricing at the moment, but the pricing in other regions will be similar to that of existing Avatars already available on the PSN Store."
Why the hell do they just come out with one pack of avatars every once in a while? They should put a ton online. It's ridiculous that when they release new ones, that everyone all of a sudden ends up with the same avatars. They could make some serious money off of avatars but, instead they delay, and release only a few every once in a while.
What have we got? MAG, Heavy Rain, and now Uncharted 2 to choose from?
I guess I'll be sticking with my 'Spade' avatar for a while.
i see what you're saying if they were to just release 100 or so "avatars" (overpriced pictures IMHO) a week for 3 months there would be a lot of ps3 avatars that people would pay for and sony would make money...
i think i'm going to be passing on this round of avatars uncharted just isn't my style for avatars...
you know i was just thinking about it and sony could make a lot of money by expanding there avatar system with playstation home virtual items for your avatar they could make even more money, bundling your pic avatar with items for the costume for your virtual avatar...
