    PlayStation 4 is Finally Getting Theme Support

    From IGN:

    Are you bored looking at your PlayStation 4's blue background? Well, you're in luck. When firmware 2.0 launches for PlayStation 4, you'll be able to download and utilize custom themes on your machine.

    This news was revealed at Sony's pre-TGS press conference, and interestingly, similar news was also revealed for Vita, which will also be getting custom themes once Vita firmare 3.30 launches. Custom themes for both PS4 and Vita are largely modeled after the theme system that has been in use on PlayStation 3 for years. Themes let you alter your background image, as well as the appearance of various icons.
    Think I remember hearing this was quite a requested feature so nice to see that once again Sony are listening to their consumers!!

    The Vita get's an update? I'm not even mad, that's amazing!

    Curious what it'll be like.

    Hopefully they look better and are better realised than the PS3 themes. I always just went back to the original PS3 theme because it always looks like the best one. I'll be happy if they just let us keep the PS4 default theme but change the colour.
    Trophy-licious!

    PS4 Update 2.0 Will Bring Themes to the Console

    by Joel Taveras (7 hours ago) 17 @joelRtaveras
    PS4News


    Not to be outdone by the PS Vita’s theme feature announcement, the PS4 also gets in on the action.
    PlayStation fans looking to bring themes to their PS4, can now look forward to the upcoming 2.0 update. Towards the tail end of the SCEJA Press Conference 2014, Sony officially announced its plans for themes to make their way to the PlayStation 4.
    Like on the PS3, users will be able to customize the look and feel of their PlayStation 4 user interface which will include themes inspired by games available on the platform.
    The PlayStation 4 2.0 software update is expected to arrive sometime in September.
    Update: below you can check out an animated GIF of the themes showcased at the conference, courtesy of Reddit user TiberiusAbadon

    My life is now complete! I love making and downloading new themes on PS3.

    Hopefully this means themes can be user-created.

    If you have the PlayStation app, you can upload a custom avatar via that app. Then you go to your PS4 settings and choose to use the same avatar as on your PlayStation app

    Theme support is great, but what we really need are folders...

    Nice to have, but I'd rather them implement a 'Pin to Fav's' or maybe a 'Favorites' box that's one of the first thing on the list, that you can add your favorite games/apps to.

    I like the idea of changing and customising the home page, I just hope we get some decent themes

    Yes, finally. I can get rid of that freaking playstation blue. I still love the hue of the blue when it's in a form of a light but that blue background is just too much for me. I'm switching to all black or some form of brown.

    Yes and if they can be user created then we should be able to upload our own images to use, and if we can upload our own images then we should have an image store on the PS4 and if we have an image store then we should also get video and music stores along with it.

    PS4 2.00 could be it. PS3 2.00 was also huge I believe.

    It's about time. The only thing the PS4 is missing right now is themes and folders.

    Will Sony charge for themes as MS did in Xbox 360?

    Probably like the PS3. Dynamic themes are either paid for, complementary or free with ps+. 3rd party properties will not be free.

    Wishlist: Jade Cocoon Reboot, Oni Reboot, the next JRPG, Wasteland 2 [coming soon!]
    SotC 2, Fallout 4, next Obsidian Fallout, Project Eternity, Uncharted 4, Divinity [NEW!]
    ...

    The coolest thing about user created themes is that the PS4 can save pics and videos direct from games. Imagine making a cool animated theme chopped from a cool video you recorded, same for images you capture that flip through.

    Good news that they are bringing themes back. I hope they do allow for custom work or at least in a little while the gifted folks find a way to make custom themes, haha. Now bring my MP3 support so I can listen and murder folks while playing fighting games. You right there, Sony. You are right there!

    Will be interesting what the theme will actually change. Will we be allowed our own pics/screenshots as backgrounds?
