The PlayStation Nation is a massively growing group of gamers that encompasses a multitude of gamers with different religious, political, and sexual preferences. Today marked the start of Pride Month and Sony has released a theme to celebrate.
Not to mention just plain hideous.
yeah somebody needs queer eye for their theme design.
I'm pretty sure even gay people think this theme is gay XD
Oh that's pretty cool of them.
What’s wrong It’s just a pride thing, how’s that bad? Some closed minded people on here it’s sad
They are insecure boys
As seeing some of the negative comments here I pretty much agree.
It's sad actually. It means gay people haven't arrived. When you've arrived that means no more special treatment, no more special themes, get in line like everyone else and no more throwing your I'm different card on the playing field.
Hey morgan, people can still be fired in certain states just for being gay. So no, we haven't "arrived". Does that mean no more St. Pat day or Irish parades? I mean have they "arrived" haven't they?
Some people have very delicate masculinity. A colorful theme not aimed at them could arouse them too much LMAO. @Morgan You have alot to learn homie. Arrived!? Why say it like that?
It sure is,a nice gesture.
Here we go with the big "Diversity" nonsense.
I know, you guys sure are offended.
The whole anti diversity nonsense is getting old. There is more to life than social justice and bigotry. Be grounded. Using SJWs to hide your bigotry is really lame at this point. Let's pretend that we all live in a world where we are all exactly the same and get mad whenever someone reminds us that we aren't. So childish and weak.
Yeah, that IS pretty cool of them :) That's all, no horrible people calling it out as "wrong" because they aren't getting any attention - for once
It looks really cool, caught my eyes the moment I saw it. I hope it has a fun theme song. It has a nice retro vibe too.
Same here. It's clean and colorful, free, and it's not related to a movie or game. I'll grab it for sure.
I was hoping the theme song would be YMCA.
Why, then you wouldn't complain? Doubtful...
I'm not complaining. Its a joke. YMCA was practically the gay national anthem when it came out. Persecution syndrome much? I just don't think any group needs special treatment. Being equal means you get treated like everyone else but so many in the gay rights movement actually do not want that. They want all the same rights as anyone else and yet still be elevated. Nope. I'm not buying into that part of the rainbow parade and when that becomes the theme then its time to start running those floats off the road, end the parade and get back to living.
I (male) found this funny, so did my boyfriend.
I won’t be downloading this personally but I have no issues with it and either should you. There are plenty of other sjw/pc shit to hate on, this is fine and if you were a gay gamer you would most likely love to have this theme.
Stop telling others what they shouldn't have issues with. That's gay :)
Whoa! Did you just use "gay" as a pejorative??? I'm triggered!!... ... Is what I would say if I was a sjw. I would also say this new sony theme isn't inclusive enough because I need to be perceptually offended to show everyone how morally superior I am.
I don't like to be brash about things but I'm just getting sick of the BS. People telling me how to think & behave when their own thinking is so sick & twisted. Then, they label me because I don't adhere to their fantasy land bubble view imaginings. ? Really, WTH?
> gay gamer christ, what is up with the labels? Why would I call myself a "gay gamer" lol
Maybe some gay gamers already have a cool theme or find this one ugly. Just because it’s targeted doesn’t mean they have to love it.
Didn't they offer this last year?
They did, but not in North America.
As a designer , white needs to really be very minimal when it comes to backgrounds and ux, can't believe this came from Sony...
Why do this? Why make gaming part of this agenda?
It's not an agenda, it's a life style, this month is pride month, you don't have to be gay to be able to enjoy this theme, the point is that it's for ALL people.
> it's a life style You saying it's a choice? lol
@Chickey when did you decide you like woman and do you ever want people from your same sex? That should answer it.
Atticus, Im gay you fool. Im asking why he thinks it's a choice.
This life style isn't allowed in Heaven though.
Maybe you don't have to make everything part of some agenda.
I'm gay and I don't even know what the agenda is....can you help me understand? What is the end game for the "agenda"?
There agenda is to be welcoming to all peoples. That's all I got.
Simple, you tell me why there isn't a parade for straight people on the city streets, but if you're gay you get mass marches of people holding flags for some sort of pride. It's the 21st Century and i don't think the majority of us care anymore so why push it? The Playstaion theme says For "ALL" the players. When did it happen when gay people weren't allowed to play video games? Because that's literally the only point i'm seeing here. Why create something like this? What's the point in it? I'm not celebrating the fact people are gay because i just don't care and to me when things like this come up it makes me think the homosexual community are trying to push some sort of agenda that the media maintains and now it's ended up on a gaming console.
@ Eonjay "There agenda is to be welcoming to all peoples. That's all I got." Ah yeah, so when did the Playstation ever decide "All peoples " aren't welcome? Because let's be honest, there's no point in this theme other than to jump on a band wagon like every other f*cker.
@Max Thats the thing, there isn't a valid answer anyone could ever give. But most people these days are to afraid to be honest.
@Krypto..there are plenty of parades organized & ran by us straight folks here in NYC .The St Patrick's Day parade & they didn't allow gay organizations to march in the parade for years.Brooklyn's Caribbean Day Parade definitely is for straight folks,they wouldn't think of having any gay organizations marching in their parade.The German-American Day parade,Columbus Day parade,NYC Veteran's Day parade & numerous Hispanic & other culture related parades which are predominantly straight parades.
@ Elda Every event you've just labelled is not aimed at straight people. St Patrick's day can be celebrated all around the world by many different kinds of people. As I said this is the 21st Century so anytime someone tells me they "used" to, forget it because we are looking at now. Nothing you have mentioned is prominently aimed at straight people at all, rather an assumption you've just made. There is no one singular event celebrated around the globe aimed at people who are not homosexual. St Patrick's day is cultural and religious celebration, Labor Day is an annual celebration in America almost equal to the Rio Carnival, funnily enough the prominence of that are mainly gay communities and drag Queens. And veterans day has nothing to do with sexuality, in fact every single one you've mentioned has nothing to do with sexuality, where as Gay pride...
I don't like the way it looks so I won't be downloading it. But it's nice that Sony made this theme.
I downloaded this in support of Pride month & a few close friends that are gay that I love dearly.Gay,Puerto Rican & Israel Pride are being celebrated right here in NYC this month with their fabulous parades!
I'm downloading too because colors really pop on my TV. And also because Im not a bigot.
I hear you,it's for everyone it states..."For all the players"
Imagine being gay and a goth. That Rainow is gonna clash massively
Well, I am bi and while the theme looks cool it gets old instantly. I would have liked it better if it was a rainbow variant of the flow or particle themes.
WOW! You can have the best of both. Fun in double. I kind of got jealous.
I hate when companies inject social politics into their products, it comes off as so disingenuous and self serving.
Yes! If you have a PS4 you are gay now.
I don't understand what harm it does. Like it, download it. Don't like it, don't. If this article wasn't here you probably would not even know about it. It's not like they are pushing it on everyone's dashboard.
My best friend is gay and I'm straight. Guess what? Neither of us give 2 f**** about about companies pushing their agendas on us. Specially not when said companies belong to the gaming industry. Pride Month is just about the dumbest thing ever. I mean, Where's earthling month? where's mammal month? Where's homosapiens month? You are who you are, you choose who you lay in bed with, and nobody cares that you do.
You seem to be very upset for who don't give a f***.
>, you choose who you lay in bed with You don't choose who you are attracted to. I think you're doing your friend a disservice.
That's your opinion and what you've been taught to believe by society. It's a choice, plain and simple.
Oh yeah? I guess we are raped when we choose to take someone to bed. Good to know. Don’t twist my words if you know exactly what I meant. Also, my friend was beside me as I wrote that comment, and he agrees, thank you very much. My point all along was: he’s gay, i’m straight, we’re both still humans. We stop being equal when we give special treatment to somebody just for being who he/she is. So, if you think I’m disservicing my friend for thinking him my equal, you’re very sad indeed. Have a good day.
@madmax if i had the choice i wouldn't make life difficult. You ignorant twat.
Pride month has nothing to do with whom someone lays with,it so much bigger then that.These individuals were looked down upon for being who they are & wanted to be.They were beaten harassed didn't have rights but now things are changing for them & they're proud of that.This Pride month is for celebrating being free,equality & who you are especially here in NYC not only are the Gays celebrating with a parade & festivals but folks here from Israel & Puerto Rico are as well.Why wouldn't anyone want to be proud of who they are & their accomplishments including knocking down barriers & obstacles & shouting it with exuberance to the world by celebrating with people from all walks of life from around the world,sounds like a beautiful thing no matter who you are,gender or culture! People are people & if everyone could RESPECT that this world would be in a better place.
Well there is a reason for Pride parades/month and your gay friend should look up the history. It's not like the parade was just some dudes saying we should throw a fabulous parade. It was a movement for equality. Your friend should thank the drag queens and misfits of society that allow him to be your gay best friend instead of a depressed friend in the closet. Stonewall riots are the reason for Pride month and a remembrance of the past.
I said you're doing him a disservice because you are insinuating it's a choice. It's not my fault your gay friend is ignorant on the topic. Your comment about rape makes no sense. What does choosing who you sleep with have to do with not choosing your sexuality? Your initial comment has no bearing on the topic at hand. The only sad person here is you pretending you understand wtf you're talking about.
