Ever since Sony first announced the availability of dynamic themes on the PlayStation Network, I’ve been overflowing with anticipation of a theme: one which truly sweeps me from my feet and smacks me back down to earth with its sheer complexity, style, and originality.
You can imagine my jubilation when Sony then announced partnerships with third party companies, providing both dynamic and static premium themes for just a few dollars, while leaving creativity in the hands of innovative minds! The actual partnerships at the time were with two companies, Smobile Inc and Disruptive Publishers LLC.
After some investigation, it becomes apparent that Disruptive Publishers LLC actually just contracts artists from across the net (from communities like DeviantArt) and gives them 5% of gross sales for their original background. Disruptive then applies a vaguely related set of icons and submits the theme to Sony for inclusion on the PlayStation Network.
