PlayStation has released a free PS4 theme to celebrate International Women's Day.
I love the idea but not the execution. Why must they look so serious and moody? I dont expect them to be smiling like the Stepford Wives but must they be depicted so miserably? I love Ellie but it seems the portrait is taken from the troubled trailer for TLoU2. To me she's a symbol of innocence and joy from the first game, i wish that were captured instead. The bear, which already looks out of place, is even more jarring because of how happy it is. As is the flowery border. Its more funereal than celebration because of how glum everyone needlessly is. Lovely idea though.
That's pretty much how they look in their respective games.
Not bad. A little too bundled up for my taste.
Truly is sad that ppl here are b*tching about Nadine in the picture. Is it hurting you that much what the woman from Media Molecule did damn smh?
A woman designed it. Also, they don't look miserable at all. They look determined. Women don't always have to be smiling you know.
I love the juxtaposition between the bad azz women and the flower garnish.
My wife likes it, and she's not any of the political things people are bringing up. I like it too. Artistically, there are some things I would change, but I like the idea.
Where is 2B and A2? Where is Kat and Raven? Where is Mono and Agro? Where is Anne? Where is Catherine? Where are the Japanese waifus?
Yeah, they should be depicted like male heroes, looking sunshiney and friendly.
Only if they are standing with their backs to the camera looking over their shoulder.
I really like the overall look, but Ellie actually looks horrid in it compared to the others. It's like a bad photoshop. Don't care if it's the new look for Ellie compared to the original, but it just doesn't mesh well.
I didn't think it was possible to complain so thoroughly about a free theme. You learn something new everyday.
I’m maybe sound cringe. But I will say it anyway. For International Women’s Day and my mother as well, I wish them have a better future.
Apparently,judging by the disagrees, gamers don't want to wish women well
Nah the made up crap holiday is useless. Only important for weak minded people.
I think the weak minded people are the ones who get triggered by it
What make me cringe is people keep saying cringe. It's damn annoying sound like a damn 10 years old.
Would love Capcom to do one with all the RE females.
This would be fantastic!
Why Nadine ? Elena was on uncharted since day 1 , they should have thrown in kat and nariko
@Keese so what if they are from the newest UC that doesn’t mean anything .. they have used two characters from games that arent even out yet even Ellie is from TLOU 2
Who cares, either way? They chose what they chose, better was their decision, not ours 🤷♂️
This theme is using main characters from this generation of PS. Elena has been a part of Uncharted yes, but she was not "the main character" of either U4 or U:TTL. All the characters here represent lead roles for PS4 games. It's really simple.
Great, now just get rid of Nadine and we are sorted. And no its not because she is black, its because she is a ridiculous character.
Well, I do agree with that. But I do think this theme use Nadine because she was in Uncharted 4 and Uncharted Lost Legacy. Yes, I think Elena would be a better choice.
I think I'm the only person who liked Nadine.
I also have no problem with Nadine.
I don't have a problem with her. I wasn't overly impressed with her characterization and development in UC4, but she didn't detract from the plot. She's better in UC:LL, as she seems more human. I also like that Chloe is getting more focus on her character, instead of being the side-kick.
I liked Nadine.
why don't people take UI into account when making themes... Super light backgrounds at the top especially don't work well for the UI on the ps4. I like the idea, but like others have said the execution is lacking for background purposes.
Elena > Nadine
Not available in USA.. so much for being international.
Can you imagine one with PS men? That would look fantastic and powerful. Drake and Kratos in front and spreading out Sully with a cigar, Cole Mcgrath, Joel, MGS4 Snake, Sevchenko and rounding off with the coolness factor Sir Galahad.
It'll never happen. Men aren't allowed to celebrate their masculinity anymore. Didn't you get the memo?? I kid, I kid. 🙈
Na your 100% correct lol
I'm a guy too, but damn, do you guys ever stop playing the victim?
Nicely done. I also love free themes so, yay.
Wasn't there already an international womens day one month ago..?
Lol at all those complaining over a free theme. Don't like, don't download it.
Fab theme, great characters and art, but I just don't see it replacing my The Last of Us theme. I occasionally use my Bloodborne trophy for earning the platinum, but I always come back to my Last of Us theme.
umm wheres Knack?
Its not on the store anymore it was free last month, now we have Bloodborne and Rachet & Clank.
STUNNING AND B R A V E But i like my game women with skimpy clothes
Is this UK/EU only?
did you know that the first week of march is actually womens week and march 8 is womens day and that the entirety of march is womens month? its been this way since the early 1900s? and men have no such honors.....strange.
That's because everyday is Men's Day. We've invented everything of significance in society, so we don't need a damn DAY to remind us of our greatness.
Hahaha well said. I feel better.
I wouldn't care either way. I don't need a day to celebrate or recognize my gender, or contributions to society. I also don't need a special day to appreciate women...or anyone really.
hmm Anybody know if there is one for the US?
I don't see it on the NA store.
Chloe, Nadeem, Aloy, Kara, and Ellie. Who’s the bear? lol
Love it when a major corp jumps on the celebrate woman bandwagon yet only 3 out of the 50 tops jobs at Sony are currently filled by woman. Lets not even get started on pay equality.
Did you ever happen to think that maybe that's all that were qualified. I'm all for equality and all that but do you think we should place people into positions simply because of their gender so we can fill a quota regardless of rather they're qualified for the job or not? People like yourself dont take into account the fact many woman simply dont want to work corporate desk jobs. FYI there are lots of woman in this world that make far more than men do.
And lets hope that continues because I would not want to see this industry crumble just so for the sake of political correctness like what happening at Marvel Comics. The pay gap is also a myth debunk several times over by facts and by women with no one ever able to give substantial evidence to prove otherwise.
Another example of why PlayStation has a leg up on XBOX. Does XBOX even have any AAA protagonists that are girls?
Does Sony have any real woman who are protagonists or do they only have CG ones? Whats worse, Photoshoped images of woman in magazines or fictional woman modeled after models or actresses.
Lolololololol!!!! What?!! 🤣.
Yea they do actually, quite a few of there characters are modeled after real people.
Who cares really.....as long as its not forced in a game.
People ahould be glad that they did this at all. Its not necessary and it's free. Think you can do better? Well great now you can with the recent fw update you can spend some time in Photoshop make your own and use that instead. Ffs people.
Its cool, I wish we had more female icons in it like Nariko. Would be great tp get one for the boys too. Kratos, Nathan Drake, Delsin
A heavenly sword theme would be awesome.
And they all look happy to be here too. Wonder if the guys Sony picks for International Men's Day will be smiling or just as much the life of the party as these gals are?
Well we know Kratos wont be smiling, damn just thinking about him smiling is scary.
Inzo, you bring up an interesting point... but I don't know, a Schwarzenegger's terminator smiling in T2 is hilarious.
Does North America not get to show support?
Meh, would like to see Japan’s version of this ;)
