The feature-packed System Software update 2.0 will bring themes to the PlayStation 4.
Finally! Can't wait to customize the background of my PS4's interface
I'll probably be boring and just change it to a purple version of the current theme, lol. Purple ftw!
Nothing wrong with that at all. Personally I prefer Black as my background color. To me it makes everything pop. Looking forward to 2.0 firmware.
Or colors by month. Who remembers that?
I'm just sick of blue... I need some change.
I just hope European PS+ members will now get as much free themes love as the USA gets. The USA gets lots more free avatars and themes than us.
I want the same flowing dynamic theme from the ps3. I would also like to be able to change the system background music.
It's about time! I nearly sold my ps4 because of it! Gawd Damn I needs me customization! Lol
I hope there'll be dynamic ones like on PS3 where it changed the color depending on day and time... can't wait for v2.0!
I like orange :)
Purple is my favourite colour....what a perfect colour. Any news on folders?
I've listened to the podcast at that point three times now and haven't yet heard them talking about themes. Is the time stamp right?
Yeah I'm boring as well, maybe just brown or green
Yesx 1 million good god I'm tired of looking at blueeeee ಠ_ಠ I want a DriveClub or theOrder Dynamic theme
@ Yi-Long We haven't gotten free themes since Sony changed PS Plus to offer more games. It's been over a year I'm sure. I kinda miss the free themes and avatars, but whatever... at least we get more free games now. We also used to get games released on a weekly basis. Now it's all at the same time like the EU. I don't like that. It was cooler getting something every week, and the download wasn't some absurd amount when spread out.
Purple is what I put my Vita backgrounds to. Would love it to match on my PS4 as well.
Damn! So many disagrees lol! Bad sarcastic joke I guess :-p
PS3themes who remembers that website? Yea bring on the update! ;)
Sony continue to make the PS4 better I love them :)
My favorite color is x-ray! (((((((((O)))))))))) ((((((((((O)))))))))) Can't wait to have some dynamic ish if they have it. I miss having that funky roulette Dia Los Muertos theme in my living room during Cinco de Mayo.
I like to have a custom theme with a pic of mine for the background. For instance, my ps3 is the telltale games walking dead theme with a pic of me and my wife at lake Louise in Alberta. Feels like a personal thing that way. I've hated not having the theme option with PS4
I hope they have a pink theme for me. :)
PS4 slowly catching up with PS3 in terms of functionality but not there just yet.
YES LUKAS YES same here!
I would have killed just for the ability to make the background purple, like my ps3. Fantastic! Edit: @Luke Haha hell yeah brother! Purple ftw.
Purple bros FO LYFE. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-k...

Ahh I want to be a purple member. Where do I sign up?
Apparently purple denotes sexual frustration. Which is weird since Prince was as purple as the Jokers balls and he got more ass than a toilet seat.
@Ocsta Lmfao, epic comment. + bubbles.
Purple is also the traditional colour for "royalty"
I'm also applying for membership in the Purple Lovers fan club.....My Forum name is a Prince song....as is my PSN Name: Power-Fantastic (Feel free to add me for Diablo folks). Wait this isn't the Prince fan club thread.....
Your User is a Prince song too I guess...? It's Spelled Like Prince made it for you. Use of capitol U and use of homonyms... Mine is from a Zappa album. Both funky dudes...!

Hopefully some of the theme websites start straight sway, some of the custom themes on the ps3 are very impressive. I fancy a Bloodborne one.
Don't get your hopes up as the link to the blogcast has been removed & this post on GAF seems to confirm that it was a mistake. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... I hope this all just means that they want to do a proper press release for it, instead of just mentioning it on a podcast, Fingers crossed.
it probably has to do with the fact that they where not suppose to reveal that. i listened to the podcast myself this morning, and they where casually talking about it as if its happening. im pretty positive that we are getting more features here than what was announced at TGS, and themes are probably one of them. this is a 2.0 update after all.
I hope we get the choice to use that wonderful watchdogs background. http://i7.minus.com/ibk8dmy...
bubble me up if you will put boobs and booty on your bacground
Would be nice to able to use the dynamic ps3 themes I already paid for and hopefully NOT have to repay for them. Also would be nice if the let us use our own background images. Imagine if we could use HD Gif files as dynamic themes! Or make our own moving image/dynamic themes from games using the share button...
You're joking right? You want Sony to rewrite the code for each the thousands of themes to work on ps4. And on top of that u want it to be free? Be reasonable
i've already paid for themes on PS3 so why should I buy them again ?
It doesn't make sense because the theme was made for a totally different operating system.
@SpaceDelete And? You bought them to work on ps3... They work Sony doesn't owe u anything
You paid for PS3 themes, not PS4 themes. Get real.
"Be reasonable"? I am talking about any themes that already ARE planned to be re-released on ps4 (from ps3). If for example, Sony re-releases the LBP2 sackboy theme for ps4 (re-engineered or not) than it would be nice if it were cross-buy. Why would I be opposed to getting it free? And if it isn't free, than I won't cry about it, I just won't buy it again. Like I said, I'd prefer an ability to make our own dynamic themes using video clips from gameshare, or .gif files. Why is it that fanboys like you assume that people who have preferences (such as me) are somehow overdemanding by simply stating a scenario that they think is optimal to them? Me paying for old themes is not in my rational best interest. So I would rather be able to use old ones if it isn't too much of a hassle for Sony. If it is, than i'll concede and accept the ability to make my own themes via share button, background images or download gifs from browser. Perhaps you're overreacting. IF its not a hassle for Sony than i'd like to be able to use my ps3 themes. If it IS a hassle, I am more than "reasonable" by asking that we be able to use our own pictures (like a windows PC would let us do). I'm not making demands, i'm simply stating what I am hoping they will do by default. Fanboys like you need to be relax bro. Either way i'm happy as Sony has been excellent 4 generations in a row. No need to be defensive. Consider sunlight once in a while and staying away from n4g all day. Seems to make you very antsy.
You make a fair case don don but that doesn't mean people who believe you were being entitled are fanboys.....
You wouldnt have to do that.
I bought several themes from Sony last generation with the mind set that these themes are not going to be ps4 compatible, I knew Sony was going to make the Ui appear basically everywhere and at anytime so I knew that a ps3 dynamic theme that is constantly running in the background waiting for you to press the home button makes no particle sense on ps4, however I hope they come out with some bad ass ps4 dynamic themes
@spacedelete my nes cartridges wont work in my wii u, nintendo better give me free downloads and hd remakes cuz i already bought them.
What about my comment qualifies me as a fanboy? How did I overreact? Did I insult you? Or type in caps? Or use exclamation marks? I just pointed out that it would unreasonable for anyone to think a purchase made for an older device, would grant you access to it on a newer device. I didn't say anything about custom themes, so im not sure why you brought that up
The best defense is an even better offense. You tell 'm.
I agree "It would be nice". And holy crap these guys replying are sensitive lol
It keeps getting better and better.
To be fair it's something we should've had from release ... But still, glad themes are finally on their way.
Not bad at all. But i need folder option also. To many squares. Does anybody heard anything about themes on 1:16:00 in that interview?
I'm surprised we still don't have folder support.
We didn't know about themes being part of firmware 2.0 until now, so it's a good chance folders might be included as well.
agreed. When we get themes it surely must mean that Sony have finalized and figured out how the OS is going to be. Hopefully it will be some sort of ps4 optimized XMB. The Ps3 xmb is really good just sayin, Ps4 speed with an updated full fledged XMB = awesome. Doesnt have to be, but I hope it will be rich and intuitive nonetheless.
YES! YES! YES!
yessssss!(again) absolutely awesome...gonna be some sick one's on ps4, buzzing.
Sweet!!!! That's great even if its not dynamic themes its ok I'm tired of staring at the blue one even doe blue is my favorite color.
