I've payed for a cool 8-bit ATHF picture packs & 2 Iron-Man picture packs. I don't like wasting my money on things like that but I do think it's nice to be semi-individual. What do you guys think?

Naw, I'm saving my money for other things.

I paid for Gears of War picture pack and Assassin's Creed picture pack. I find it a waste, so I don't do that anymore.

I bought one of the Hitman: Blood Money picture packs.  My current free one is way cooler though.

#5 Posted by Subway (982 posts) -

Yeah, I bought some titans, pistons, Bioshock, and splinter cell ones.

#6 Posted by WickedCobra03 (2219 posts) -

Yeah, I think the Halo 3, Fifa and Hitman, I think that was it otherwise, I don't really like spending my money on that stupid crap...

Once in a while I have some extra points left over with nothing I really want to buy in the near future so i'll download a gamer pic or a show or movie with the extra points. The one I did buy was the ATHF movie icons and the Disney Villains icon and picture pack.

Only if I have extra points which I don't.

Don't think I've ever bought any of the picture packs to be honest.

#10 Posted by mastergiani (29 posts) -

No. I don't know why anyone would.

I guess because they want a different image, and the only way to get one is to buy it, so...........

Nope, the free gamerpics out there are good enough.

#16 Posted by HazBazz (1924 posts) -

I payed 80 points for the ScrewAttack picture pack

#17 Posted by MsCortana (445 posts) -

Only if I have an odd number of points leftover.

#18 Posted by Met2609 (635 posts) -

They should be free, so I'm not going to give in and pay for any of them.

#19 Posted by Conner (94 posts) -

I've bought a few packs like the Aqua Tenn Hunger Force pack and the Gangsters pack.

#20 Posted by Manks (862 posts) -

I have bought some many picture packs in the past, but I know I just get free ones.  I hope they implement gamer pics into the new avatar system.

#21 Posted by heretrix (85 posts) -

I will never spend a dime on a picture pack. I get the free ones though.

#22 Posted by Lombax (117 posts) -

nah the free ones seem cool enough 

#23 Posted by Shocker (2324 posts) -

I only get the free ones. I would never pay for pictures.

#24 Posted by dogbox (547 posts) -

Sadly, yes. I was way psyched for Bioshock to come out, as I recall, and I bought a Picture Pack for the game. I think I used one of the pictures for about 3 days. I stick to the free ones now.

#25 Posted by ROWD (196 posts) -

i got a 5000pt card for a halo tourney win, and didn't know what to do with it...i bought a lot of pics and themes. most are embarrassing, but the highlights of dumb buying are:
-rainbow six vegas 2: deluxe pics
-any cod4, i bought two
-bioshock, great game dumb pic choices
-ninja gaiden2 (i'm so ashamed)

but i stand behind my choice for the action chow yun phat pics from stranglehold!!

#29 Posted by Schizoid (1121 posts) -

I got a couple when I had some points left over, can't remember what ones though.

NCAA 07 Big East Picture Pack, that is about it.

...oh and, and I think Giants Madden 07 picture pack...it sucked. I think I downloaded that one. But the NCAA 07 one was good.

I have used the Rutgers logo from the day I bought it, back in June of 07. Every single day.

#32 Posted by mad4it89 (123 posts) -

I bought the Family guy picture pack a while back but didn't like any of them so needless to say I haven't wasted anymore money on em. I'm currently rocking the free Slurpee gamer picture :-)

#33 Posted by Joker19 (62 posts) -

I've only ever paid for the Bully and Fallout 3 picture packs

but what annoys me is The Dark Knight pack that is free in the U.S!! I'd gladly pay for that if we got it here
