Loads will be happy now lol
I really realy miss my PlayStation 3 theme!!! (dynamic Killzone 3 theme)
heheh im still using this badass darksoul theme in myps3 hopefully ill be able to transfer it to the ps4 https://www.youtube.com/wat...
@pedro The only way "PS became Xbox" is if Sony produced the technically INFERIOR console, had fewer first-party studios, was last place in sales...again, etc...Fact. FOR THE LAST TIME, enjoy whatever console you want, but stop deluding yourselves.
Heavy Rain theme for me, always loved that one.
Don't care about themes, how bout we get that media functionality?
@Forn The one raining in the dark alley? :D that was my of my fav, that and the White Knight Chronicles dynamics, flower and the fullmetal alchemist brotherhood :P
I really miss themes as well and have wanted them since launch. I'll be quite happy when we start seeing some badass themes again. I'm super happy about this
hopefully we can transfer themes from ps3
Hopefully we can transfer paid avatars too. Have em show up in our ps4/SEN download history so we can change them without a ps3. Miss photo albums too, saving my own custom wallpapers :/
I would like that too, but I don't see how it's going to work. Given both machines work on totally different architecture and os.
All the ps3's default Avatars are already on ps4, so there shouldn't be a tech issue. We know they work, just a matter of flipping the proverbial switch for the paid ones. I imagine they'd have to be made available on the ps4 iteration of the store first. They don't have any paid avatars for sale yet. Perhaps it'd be similar to how they can tell I bought flower on ps3, thus making the ps4 upgrade available for free. Custom backgrounds I imagine will happen eventually, especially since we can already save screenshots, and the ps3 did it with ease. Here's hoping
@ P_Bomb There's a big difference between icons that are stored as .pngs being supported on the PS4 and a dynamic theme designed for the PS3 XMB working on the PS4. I wouldn't expect the PS3 dynamic themes to work on PS4. That's okay though, dynamic themes made for the PS4 will probably look better than the PS3 ones anyway.
@pbomb, Through the PlayStation app on a cell phone you can put any picture on there... I haven't experimented with it too much, but if that avatar saved on your ps3, maybe you could put it on a flash drive? Then xfer to cpu then to phone, then upload? Just a thought as I don't know.
@prime Yeah, that phone app is great for uploading pics to your profile. Love it. Only drawback is only friends that accept 'real name requests' will see it, so the majority of my friend list won't. But I have two PS3s anyways, so I'll just keep changing them on there in the meantime as the paid/ps+ avatars do show up on my ps4 profile that way. @opengl Something tells me you might be right about old ps3 themes not being transferable to ps4. The xmb icons are different for one, as is the layout. Might conflict
I don't want to sound like a troll or anything, but isn't Sony milking these features for future updates? Like themes, mp3 support, pausing downloads, etc...
No mention of a user theme creator so I guess it's all about getting a few more beans out of our pockets.
I never once doubted Kaz & Co!
Never huh? Funny enough this should have been a standard feature from day 1. The PS3 had this for years. The way I see things is if you build something new (PS4), you don't take away good features that the previous version (PS3) had. You got something good that the people like, build on it. I'm glad that we are getting this too but I would have been happier with a audio and video player much more. That is also something the PS3 has and the PS4 should have had from day 1. Maybe I expect too much.....
It's about time. Both the Vita and the PS4 should have had themes at launch.
dynamic theme is f***ing awsome
yes, I want Uncharted theme like I used to have on PS3
Now we just need folders to organise the home page and all will be groovy.
Trust me.... that line on icons lining up is getting ridiculous...... lack of foresight on that aspect. Like you and many others, I hope they fix that soon.
And Music/Video/Image support
Don't lie to me again please! I hope they have a TLOU theme. Also I hope themes come out for X1 soon as well. I'd love to have a Master Chief theme in time for MCC
Finally. The update we've all been waiting for.
Not quite. It's a nice feature but media playback capabilities are more important tbh.
I have a Google Chromecast so media playback and youtube viewing on Tv is not a problem for me. Playstation themes is something i wanted on my Ps4 since day. But i get your point.
@zsquaresoff I have an iphone, mp3 player, ps3, amp, ect. Doesn't defeat the purpose of sony's ps4 not having a media player, but i get your point.
I know it, it is a great feature and I hope to an amazing themes like Infamous SS OR Destiny theme that will be freaking awesome ...
Destiny theme please!
I hope for another Fullmetal Alchemist theme for ps4
