Sony's PlayStation 3 system creates an account for each separate user. The user can specify a handle, or username, and an avatar. The PlayStation 3 comes with default user pictures, but they are limited to a few designs and video game characters. If you have a USB stick and access to a computer, you can easily upload your own picture to use as an account avatar.
