    Good stuff, this reminds me of a NHL game EA had years ago. It allowed you to import a picture of your face and it would overlay it? on a players face. It had no dimension though as it was a flat face with no facial features. I would love to play my fps shooters online on my pc, and be able to shoot avatars that look like my friends. Or better? yet people I don't like :D
