PSU.com provides a guide to users on how to create, upload, view, download, and install custom PlayStation 3 themes. If you are new to all of this, this guide will help you get started and on your way.
join the forum and post three times (i suggest posting in the lobby) and gain access to thier extensive themes database! i currently have about 35 different themes installed on my ps3. the final fantasy ones are especially cool!
Yeah I saw that site...pretty good. I signed up and saw a few I liked. I got the Calvin and Hobbes one dled on my PS3. Btw, PSU.com has a theme section too, with over 100 themes already and more constantly coming in. It's user driven so it's pretty much updated every time a new theme comes out.
is it possible to download themes off the ps3's browser? and if so how do you install them?
i know off the PS store they come with the installer bundled in the file, or do i have to download them on my pc and transfer them via USB key or memory stick?
well if you want to download them from the ps3 web browswer, I think you have to have a storage device, whether it be a memory stick or external hdd connected to the ps3. Now as far as installing them from the the storage device.. you got me there.
DL them str8 to your HDD and it will automatically show up on the theme selection!
Str8 from your browser ;)
This is by far the COOLest thing they have given us yet! I love it!
i'll check those out.. thanks guys
www.ps3theme.net allows theme downloading straight from ps3 web browser to PS3 HDD.
They dont have that many themes there yet though.
Look in your settings part of your XMB , you will see theme settings. In Theme settings you will see an Install option and all the themes you have on your ps3. Install and then apply the one you want to use.
i've got a problem with the wallpapers in the themes, some of them just won't show up, like in GOW or COD4 themes, i copied and installed them 3 times and still no wallpaper, just the icons... does anybody else has the same problem? i already tried switching from 1080p to 720p but still the same problem :(
maybe no HD wallpaper?
You can just make or find a wallpaper related to the theme and use it with the theme. Which is cool cause sometimes theres pretty good themes w/not so great wallpapers.
In CoD4's case there is wallpapers available on psn store. So you can use the Cod4 theme off www.psu.com. Then use 1 of the wp's off psn store with it.
i thought about that, i just wanted to have it all in one pack, but thx. also d3l33t could be right, that the wallpapers could be in a lower resolution than 720p... thx for the help
To download the theme to your PS3. You need a "memory card/HDD/USB thumbstick"
Is that something you need to buy seperate?
HDD is your Hard Drive inside the ps3
http://www.allps3themes.com... a good site I heard you can download themes w/PS3 Web Browser as well.
Havnt tried myself yet but I did see a pretty sweet looking Half Life 2 Theme etc.
@PS3 Limps on and on If your speaking of a device to copy themes from pc and then plug into ps3 to upload yah they sold separately. ie. external USB HDD.
There are sites like the ones I listed though that you can download themes directly to ps3's internal HDD using the PS3 web Browser.
