Bit of a slow news weekend, but here's something PlayStation savvy fans might want to keep an eye out for. According to Amazon's online PlayStation Network shop, a series of Mega Man-themed PlayStation ID avatars are set to release on Augusts 31 for $0.49 a pop. Three avatars are in the works: Roll, Doctor Light and Neo Metool.
Amazon are offering online game codes for each avatar, meaning you buy a code from Amazon that's redeemed on PlayStation Network to receive the avatar. Codes won't be distributed until the 31st, mind you.
Capcom's made a trend as of late to offer up character based PSN avatars with batches of avatars being made available on weekly PlayStation Store updates each Tuesday. Previous incarnations included characters from Street Fighter III and Darkstalkers. Looks like Mega Man is up next! I'll update the post with images as soon as they are revealed.
