PlayThree report that three of the new PlayStation 3 themes have added sound effects.
The official Heavenly Sword, Ratchet & Clank, and Mesmerise themes have customised sounds which can be heard when navigating the XMB.
Im downloading this,,,, for show
confirmed, im doing it right now, its kinda cool
FREE official themes, thats awesome!!!
I will download them later...
Ya i have the ratchet and clank theme, and when i heard it I was like cool :)
I don't see Heavenly Sword or Mesmerize ones in the store but the Ratchet one is pretty sweet.
i only saw uncharted and ratchet. wtf?
ya WTH? I don't see a HS theme. I hope they do make one.
EU store guys.
If you havent already done so, create a UK user account. Im sure it be much easier for you than when I tried to make a Japanese account...
The themes are
- Mesmerise Theme
- Tori Emaki Theme
- Heavenly Sword Theme
- Motorstorm Theme
- Snakeball Theme
- Lemmings Theme
- Killzone 2 Theme
- SingStar Theme
They're all free. I really like the Snakeball, and Singstar theme.
Dope, thanks Andronix forgot I made a EU account a few weeks back on the PC store.
does this mean the user generated themes can also have sound now
The option seems to be available in the 2.0 fw, but the kit Sony released to make themes doesn't support sounds right now.
They will probably release an upgraded version of the software to support it.
Thats hot.......I will download it right now and see whats up...
I wonder if you could make each icon move, everytime you go on it?
free unlike microsoft who keep on charging for everything
keep up the good work sony!
man I am loving these themes man
How freaking nice would it be if they add background sound to theme
Imagine a DBZ themes with the japanese DBZ soundtrack in the background
Oh my god
I didn't realize the ratchet theme had customized sound until i really listened to it.
It was neat. I wonder what other neat little features were added to the them though ;O
what kind of noises do they make? like, just sound effects from the game?
im just curious what kind of songs is gonna make.
sound effects. =)
paying for xbox live seems less and less attractive with each update...
the r&c sound effects are way cool
i never even thought of themes having sound............this is awesome
X360 owners can thank us later - even the extreme haters. The PS3 XMB is fast becoming the most elegant, capable gaming OS ever. Go ahead and rag if you must, but this is getting harder to deny each day.
And when the competition is forced to stop nickel-n-diming for stuff like themes, and to allow user-generated content when pressured by UT3 & LittleBigPlanet, and perhaps stop charging for online completely when pressured by Home, thanks will be due. Everybody wins with a little competition.
Don't you mean the PSX XMB? That's where it started.
with IK+ sound effects, im sure it would sell........Douh, Damn you Sony for making these things free, *sarc*
This will/should also have music :)
a Theme with moving background! Imagine if that heavenly sword theme had a wind effect on her hair OMG
wow, i'm gonna download tonight.
I found this out yesterday, saw the bowling game for sale, and themes were updated. Like stated above only two new themes are there, Rachet and clank, aswell as Uncharted. Only R&C has the the the ring sound.
The Heavenly Sword them also has theme sound.
ratchet is the best but i'm using Windows Vista PLaystation edition. Some dude just did a nice job on that theme.
Oh, I love this new Heavenly Sword theme. And the sound effects just complete the experience.
with he Menu sounds when accessing the options menu, when you move the cursor and select a function?
That would be sweet, I'll never forget them sounds.
