Interestingly, the “premium” Golden Prince Avatar doesn’t seem on the product web page alongside State of Anarchy: Master of Mayhem’s 26 other Avatars, most of which price $1. Rather, it appears you need to manually seek for the Golden Prince Avatar, utilizing PSN’s search perform to sort within the product’s title. This begs the query of why it’s even on the storefront. Never thoughts the truth that its price is egregious at finest.
In wanting on the PSN’s Avatars page usually, it seems the Golden Prince represents the costliest. The second-highest priced Avatar—the “Luxurious Life” Avatar—prices $19.99. It is actually a picture of a shiny diamond. An picture of a shiny diamond prices $20 on the US PlayStation Network, and it has been out there to buy since September 2016. Since this is identical storefront that sells PSN Avatar, you needn’t spend $100. In truth, you shouldn’t need to spend any cash in any respect. The PlayStation Store affords loads of free Avatars, lots of which come from big-name titles similar to Batman: Arkham Knight, Disgaea, Final Fantasy, and Fortnite.
