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.

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.

thekhurg3125d ago

I literally just checked 1 hour ago for new themes. I cannot believe it was added between then and now. lol

FriedGoat3125d ago

I've had the AR bots theme for several days already.

telekineticmantis3125d ago

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?

Don't using dynamic themes use up more system resources? I always found games on the ps3 drop a few fps when using them

digger183125d ago

If its running in the background, then yes it does.

Dark_Overlord3125d ago

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)


Abriael3125d ago

That seems highly unlikely.

Shad0wRunner3125d ago

It has been MY personal experience...that Dynamic Themes on the PS3, running in the absolutely nothing to the game you are playing.

Including dropping the frame rate.

sourav933125d ago

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.

BitbyDeath3125d ago

Games and OS have memory pre-allocated.
Neither feed from the other.

GameSpawn3125d ago (Edited 3125d ago )

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.

clewis943125d ago (Edited 3125d ago )

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.

KyRo3125d ago

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.

FriedGoat3125d ago

yeah was gonna say, had this theme for a while.

Baka-akaB3125d ago

I still would prefer using my custom wallpapers and fonts

Viryu3125d ago

That. Custom wallpaper would be absolutely lovely. Not to mention that the default theme looks better than the extra ones so far.

Volkama3125d ago

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

Sharingan_no_Kakashi3125d ago

The blocks are pretty cool. That destiny one is horrible.

Baka-akaB3125d ago

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

RedDevils3125d ago

Yeah I want my custom Wallpaper too

Kurisu3125d ago

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 :)

Abriael3125d ago (Edited 3125d ago )

Six dynamic ones, plus the default in different colors.

Kurisu3125d ago

Nice. As I said above I'll check them out when I get a chance :)

The default / colours can just go away now xD
