All-Console Avatar Showdown

360: We said Chuck Norris - not Danny Bonaduce.

Wii: A full beard, hard stare, the age lines Chuck’s had since birth - everything checks out here. And you can’t see from the screenshot, but he’s wearing two deceased ninja warriors as Birkenstocks.

PS3: The Texas Ranger hat can’t hide the fact that there’s no possibility of a damned beard, nor the legendary “other fist” it hides from view.

Winner: Wii

360: That kickass fade is gonna be tough to beat.

Wii: A stunning likeness.

PS3: Black folks should be quick to inform Home that their community boasts more than two or three hairstyles. Again, the lack of a goatee cannot be made up for by an impromptu dance, Mr. West.

Winner: 360



360: The fact that he looks as if he just lost the Neverland Ranch is quite topical.

Wii: The Skele-Pop caricature we are all familiar with.

PS3: If the Freddy Krueger shirt appears strange it’s because, as with the 360 avatar, we had to build him as a woman! Don’t stop the indignity ‘till you get enough!

Winner: PS3

360: Well, it’s unappealing, so that lends some authenticity. But while we can appreciate that Mrs. Hilton is misshapen, that doesn’t excuse the wax nose. Morons have feelings, too!

Wii: It’s kind of an insult to blondes everywhere - slapping on a paint bucket of makeup does not a Paris make. And how dare you make us defend blonde women?! Mii Fail.

PS3: Objects in the Home creator may appear cuter than they are. Such is the case with our P.Hil. You wouldn’t believe how many idiots were tripping over themselves to be rejected by a female character piloted by a slovenly GamesRadar editor:

Dudes come running for the great taste of fake girl!

Winner: PS3

360: Passable, only in that it’s African American with dreadlocks.

Wii: Instantly recognizable. The dress retains most of The Whoop’s androgynist wiles, and makes it even harder to mistake for Doug E. Fresh.

PS3: Just sad. With no dreadlocks, not only impossible to make a decent Whoopi, it also omits any suitable Bob Marley and/or Predator. And since we were essentially dealing with a fat Niobe here, we saw those Bootsy Collins glasses and said, “Why not?”

Winner: Wii

    on a site that is obviously owned by microsoft, i'm surprised the obvious winner wasn't 360. but still it was close behind. i disagree. wii kicked everyone's ass. no one else came as close as wii's miis did. home lost b/c it is more serious with its avatars and isn't focusing on having idiots dick around with them to make them look like fictional characters or unique celebrities.

    Eh who really gives a f**k about avatars or dictators anyway they both suck
  • Nintengeek750 - December 11, 2008 12:59 a.m.

    I'm sorry but the wii hitler is just plain scary
  • mrandydixon - December 11, 2008 12:48 a.m.

    Is it just me, or does the Home Hitler look like Matt Dillon?
  • fuzzattck - December 10, 2008 10:24 p.m.

    wow Home needs more features and clothes if its gonna be any good
  • stuzimuzipuzi - December 10, 2008 8:15 p.m.

    i fink the miis win most of them the hitler 1 lol

    The 360 avatars would be the best if you could just change the colors of the clothing. If they had half the clothing options with the ability to change the colors, it'd be perfect. As it is, there's always some article of clothing that would work... if only it were black or blue or any other color than the one it's stuck as.
  • RROD - December 10, 2008 10:04 a.m.

    What a terrible comparison! Who even made the the PS3 ones looks like they didnt even try. Also, funny that all the 360 ones are made by the SAME person... a xbox writer!!!!LOL
  • CARLINNIT - December 10, 2008 8:38 a.m.

    I'm suprised how good some of the wii's were. I think that once Home is up and running on the PS3, you'll be able to create anything and everything, so i'd like to see this in a few months (or years, knowing sony)
  • Sebastian16 - December 10, 2008 6:55 a.m.

  • Ramen_Soup - December 10, 2008 6:50 a.m.

    Poor PS3 Home Mario...
  • TrIp13G - December 10, 2008 4:44 a.m.

    Whoa. Gahmah, calm down. We're all friends here.
  • HungryBeaver - December 10, 2008 3:40 a.m.

    WTF?! Michael Jackson on PS3 looks like s**t! How the hell does it win? I'd vote for the Wii 1st and the 360 one 2nd. All of the others were fine except for maybe Hank Hill...
  • Moosebomber - December 10, 2008 3:28 a.m.

    360 ftw. i made an exact replica of my emo neighbor. tried on my wii and he looked...well...lets not mention it. plus. that dick thing made me laugh.
  • LionheartAce - December 10, 2008 1:57 a.m.

    LOL, great feature.
  • octagons - December 10, 2008 1:55 a.m.

    the xbox avatars stance makes all the men look like a queer not that there is anything wrong with that
  • evildevil2 - December 10, 2008 1:41 a.m.

    Dick P. McJohnson.........XDDDDDDDDDDDDD, MII hitler? XXDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD, Joker, why so serious :(, >:) XDDDD
  • Hurricrane - December 10, 2008 12:28 a.m.

    rofls, the emo Xbox hitler had me laughing for 3 min XD
  • Gahmah - December 10, 2008 12:04 a.m.

    Hank Hill's ain't a Hillbilly you yuppie leftist pinko westerners. I guess Steven Jobs and Ryan Seacrest are good types for y'all?
