Sony just released all-new PS4 dynamic themes, and they are currently available in PS4’s North American stores. New graphics add personality to the PS4 interface, and allow users to express themselves. The themes also pay tribute to two of Playstation’s best titles.
The themes were released in two batches, the first containing 18, the second 15. Batch 1 included “Astronaut,” a special anniversary theme for God of War, plus 16 teams for MLB 15: The Show. Batch 2 included more MLB 15: The Show teams and nothing else.
God of War Theme Celebrates a Special Anniversary
The God of War theme is being offered at an introductory price of $1.00 until March 31, $1.99 thereafter. Aaron Kaufman, a strategist at the Sony Santa Monica Community, told DualShockers.com that European gamers will get the God of War theme on March 25 at the lower price. In case you’re wondering, its file size is 27.3MB.
In celebration of the game’s decade anniversary, God of War 3 Remastered will be released for PS4 some time this year. The anniversary is the likely reason why the dynamic theme is being offered at a discount for a short time.
“The Astronaut” Theme
The “Astronaut” theme is described by the Playstation Store as follows: “An astronaut waits patiently for rescue. In this fully 3D-modeled theme, rock and debris slowly orbit around a huge binary star system.” The file size is 13.6MB, and the cost is $2.49.
MLB 15: The Show Team Themes
Baseball fans will glom onto these, and there’s a theme for everyone. One theme is a general game theme, meaning it does not feature a major league team. The theme file sizes vary depending on the team, but they fall in the mid-20MB range.
Nearly all the new themes were developed by Sony, with the exception of “The Astronaut,” which was developed and published by Tikipod. Sony allows neither custom themes nor third-party and user created themes.
