    PS4 custom backgrounds

    A question was relayed to Shuhei Yoshida about custom backgrounds for the Playstation 4. His response was a solid no. What do you guys think about it? Naturally, I am a little disappointed considering that the Playstation 3 had this feature. However, I am hoping that they will provide a future firmware update to enable this feature.

    It took over half a year to get that feature onto PS3. Sony seems to be listening to people so count on it being in a update in less than a year. Oh and the news doesnt bother me at all.


    RIP Oculus Rift

    Most likely it will be added in the future.

    Yeah 7 yrs of having the option for custom backgrounds and I have just left the default. It's a safe bet that I don't give a crap

    I remember from my early years as a lurker, this site had an awesome bank of ps3 custom themes. Are they still here?

    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    As long as they provide some nice backgrounds, I'm not caring about custom ones.

    I used a custom background when the PS3 when I first got my hands on the console, but then I noticed I started using the dynamic themes even more. I can go either way with this but the officially made dynamic themes are really good.

    Still using the infamous 2 dynamic background and wallpaper on my other name. I'll ask him if dynamic wallpapers will make it in later down the road.

    People need to remember how barebone the ps3 os was on release. We just need to keep asking them

    I use both themes and custom backgrounds, so I think it would be quite boring if that wasn't available on the PS4. It's not a big deal, but a bit boring.

    I'm sure they were either joking or they will definitely enable it at some point, that's like saying here's your new Windows 9 but hey you can't put any background pictures of your own.

    Still trying themes on my PS3 this day, even made one or two in the past, so I am upset at this. I just hope when they do (if they do) they release an official theme builder that they will keep up to date with all the different icons and selection they will no doubt add to the PS4 and it's UI. I remember as they added things to the XMB you had to venture the web like a madman to find a few of the icons if you couldn't make them yourself. (that darned chat icon gave me quite the trouble back then, iirc )

    I switched back to the default background/theme about 3 years ago, realised it was probably the best one available anyway. So not too bothered, and as has been mentioned the PS4 UI looks quite busy anyway, not much room for wallpaper.

    That's too bad. I really liked the custom backgrounds and themes on the PS3. My current one is the Calvin & Hobbes Gold Theme.

    Kinda ?? as to why it's not in. But it will most likely be in with a patch.

    No biggie.

    As long as they let me change all that blue into black and I'm good until they can set up custom backgrounds.

    If we can't have custom backgrounds, can we at least change the color?
