The PlayStation Store will allow gamers to purchase new avatars for use on the PlayStation 4 starting next week, adding in a feature from the PS3 era that’s been absent since the console’s launch.
This information comes to us from a tweet posted to the PlayStation Twitter earlier today:
Update x2! Avatars are coming to PlayStation Store on PS4 starting next week. Your PS3 avatars will still carry over. 😁

Fans of the more retro avatars will be happy to hear that PS3 avatars will be carried over.
Sony released a tweet earlier in the day claiming that the avatars were currently live on the store, but this was quickly corrected by a Sony representative. The first tweet was an error and the second update is the proper information.
Thousands of the already available avatar options can be viewed on the PlayStation Store’s website.
