With the release of firmware 2.0 the PS4 added five dynamic themes to the PlayStation Store, but recently another has been published. Named “AR Bots,” it’s themed after The Playroom.
Its actually 5.7 mb.
Yep, fixed. That would have been a rather big theme lol.
I have to admit, I was like damn that's huge. Thanks for posting though. Love the theme.
I literally just checked 1 hour ago for new themes. I cannot believe it was added between then and now. lol
I've had the AR bots theme for several days already.
They gotta put these in LBP3, I mean the actual bots, not just the costume. Matter that would be a idea for a New type of DLC for LBP, characters or costumes that actually have special affects related to the game it comes from, AR Bots, would have some sort of AR attack or animation, Drake costume throws Barrels and shoots them, Col it would be like a Super Smash Bros type of affect, with more widespread uses. SOOOONY?!! Why not do this?
This was added to last Wednesday's store update in uk. Wonder why U.S. just got it
was on uk last week but we still waiting on the destiny and advanced warfare ones. i wants TLOS and GOW
Don't using dynamic themes use up more system resources? I always found games on the ps3 drop a few fps when using them
No. Not true at all.
If its running in the background, then yes it does.
The dynamic theme doesn't run whilst you're playing a game, except the icons stay changed though (which shouldn't use any more resources than normal) :)
That seems highly unlikely.
It has been MY personal experience...that Dynamic Themes on the PS3, running in the background...do absolutely nothing to the game you are playing. Including dropping the frame rate.
Dynamic themes on the PS3 only ran when no other game/app was running. That's why when you pressed the PS button to bring up the in-game XMB, you only saw a translucent background with XMB icons. Ergo, the dynamic theme wasn't running and so was not using up any of the resources that may affect gameplay.
Games and OS have memory pre-allocated. Neither feed from the other.
Yep. Also, I'm pretty sure any animations are paused once outside the XMB/Main Menu meaning no processing power is being used on an animation you are not seeing. Edit: Just installed it...It's borderline creepy.
I would also like to point out the stock theme on ps4 is dynamic, so the point is invalid for a PS4 and like what other people have said dynamic themes don't run during a game on ps3. So no you are completely wrong.
Dynamic themes don't work on the PS3 when using the in game XBM, the background goes clear. The theme only shows when not playing a game.
Late N4G it was released last week.
yeah was gonna say, had this theme for a while.
I still would prefer using my custom wallpapers and fonts
That. Custom wallpaper would be absolutely lovely. Not to mention that the default theme looks better than the extra ones so far.
Ha that's true. I was all "oh custom themes I'll go choose one" and ended up with the default. Didn't even change the colour. Oh well, I don't have time to look at the dashboard anyways
The blocks are pretty cool. That destiny one is horrible.
the extras are ok , but i have issues with some , espectially the one named "rectangular" . I dont understand the idea behind white fonts on a mostly white theme ... even if its not exactly the same color . it should at least feature color choices like a few other themes
Yeah I want my custom Wallpaper too
Does the UK have five themes? I'll have to check as last time I looked there were just two: the white rectangular theme (which I'm currently using) and the red spiral one (the background music did my head in). The AR bot one looks like a nice addition, and hopefully soon we'll start getting themes based on games :)
Six dynamic ones, plus the default in different colors.
Nice. As I said above I'll check them out when I get a chance :) The default / colours can just go away now xD
Would love to have a Drive Club Theme
Just disconnect from wi-fi, you'll probably get similar errors ;)
I heard Halo MCC gave a similar error when looking for themes as well ;)
Too right. Let's have a dig at Warlords of Draenor as well so PC users can feel involved. Though it was quite obviously a joke. I'm sure a driveclub theme would look perty and car-like.
This theme is dope!
why is it taking me 5 minutes to download a 5mb file with a 80MBit connection only psn edit: nice theme. the best one so far. the one with the boat was too kiddy, and white one was annoying so this is what ill be using now
Oh look, one more Microsoft fanboy pretending they own a ps4, how cute.
Because the connection speed in your mind where you made up that scenario is too low.
This theme has been available for couple of weeks now. Surprised no one picked up on it sooner lol
Yep I saw it a while ago Im also surprised its mentioned only now.. I really like the spiral one though
Haha, I like this theme. I would love to see custom themes at some point. I don't see why we can't get them eventually. We already have custom avatars.
Still don't have cod or destiny themes here :(
Just make a US account
Won't work if trying to apply theme from a US account onto a UK account. Region restricion. Tried it myself when they got released.
I would love it if Sony let third parties publish them like on the PS3.
Sony already said they will.
Maybe this sound stupid, but I notice you can pause download now lol
still waiting for ratchet and clank Theme
Cool I'll check it out later, can't wait for a BloodBorne and The Order themes.
Cool, but Why is this an 800 degree 'top story'?
