If You Want to Buy a $100 PSN Avatar, It Exists

Why Though?

What's the most expensive PSN Avatar you've seen? Most run in the 99 cents range, maybe $1.99 if they're classy. It turns out there's one available for a full $100.

Discovered by Twitter user Wario64, the Golden Prince Avatar, it's on sale for the rather steep price of $99.99. The avatar is attached to the game State of Anarchy: Master of Mayhem, a really weird top-down twin-stick shooter that is populated by stick figures and cartoony drawings. The game is developed by Lapovich Team, and the console version is published by Sometimes You. However, the real star of the show appears to be this avatar. Featuring a golden Arabic prince, it sure is... something.

 

Hilariously, State of Anarchy offers up several other avatars, all of which sell for either $.99 or $1.99. The game itself? It costs $7.99 on the Ps4, with another $2.99 for the soundtrack. If you combine the price of all the items besides the super expensive avatar it comes up to about $45 dollars, which isn't even half of what the Golden Prince Avatar costs. You can buy every single item here twice, then still have $10 leftover to buy a couple of months for Apple Arcade or Xbox Game Pass and get access to tons of better games. Or you can buy the Golden Prince Avatar. If that's what you want to do.

If you really want this Avatar and have the money to drop, it's still available on PSN. The game it's tied to, State of Anarchy: Master of Mayhem, is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

How do you feel about this weird avatar? Do you think you're going to buy it? Is it a gimmick by the developers to get people to talk about their game when they wouldn't otherwise? Does this mean it worked? Let us know in the comments below!
