All-Console Avatar Showdown

360: Ronald McDonald - We wondered why the hell that ugly fast food shirt was included. Now you know.

Wii: Dick P. McJohnson - Call it juvenile, but it took lots creativity and plenty of balls to sneak that schlong past Nintendo.

PS3: Rick Astley - You think those acid washed jeans and hairstyle were included by accident? Home is determined not to run around, nor desert you. Click here to read all about Home’s commitment to the user experience (sorry, had to.)

Winner: Wii

WE HAVE A WINRAR! With a two year head start and some creative twists of eyes and mustache the Mii somehow retains dominance as the Ultimate Avatar! But the 360 wasn’t close behind. And considering they released a trickle of new seasonal gear two weeks after it launched it could easily surpass the Mii should we ever do this again. (We won’t)

The same could be said for the PS3 and Home, and in defense of their dismal avatar performance, at least they have a higher purpose other than just looking cute. But the fact that apparel is downloaded through the PlayStation Store hints at a horrifying future of never-ending micro transactions where you’ll get nickel-and-dimed to death by in-game Metal Gear hats and Naruto sweatpants. Oh well, we’ll find out soon enough, allegedly before the end of this year. Until then, let’s all try to become a little more comfortable with ourselves.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    HAHAHAHAHAH! YESSSSSS! I DEMAND MORE! I CRAVE IT!!

  • 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.
