What PS3 theme do you use?

#1 Edited by AcidBrandon18 (824 posts) -

I recently read an article about the top ten most ridiculous themes and was wondering what the GB community has as their PS3 theme.

I'm also starting this thread because of this.

Fireplace dynamic theme.

That corn one is pretty dumb/good too.

Currently I'm using the Yu Narukami theme from this thread, but I'm thinking about switching it to the theme that randomizes which one pops up every time you come back to the XMB.

#4 Posted by awesomeusername (4278 posts) -

I switch between dark colored themes because bright ones make the text harder to read. I had a Skyrim one but I switched it to a picture of Gravity Rush. Sony needs to make a theme of that.

Double Dragon Neon

Still using the Infamous Festival of Blood Dynamic theme, but after seeing that corn theme i think i need be ridiculous and make the switch.

I have corn love but I'm using the Walking Dead one now.

Default because I barely use my PS3 enough to care what theme is on.

I cycle through them. Currently the Little Big Planet one is being used but the last one I used was a black and white theme with two samurai fighting each other. Looking for a good Christmas one to use though.

I'm currently using the Dark Souls theme....but I had the MGS4 one for the longest time.

#11 Posted by Ubersmake (754 posts) -

I use the default theme with the white color scheme.

Somewhat related, is there a way to get a default black theme? Or is that only available during some time of day/month of the year?

I'm currently using FEAR 2 theme.

#13 Posted by Hosstile17 (772 posts) -

I use the stock one without sparkles.

I've been using the LBP dynamic theme forever now. I think it was one of the first dynamic ones to come out? Anyways I just saw the theme article on Kotaku and I think I've seen the bear one on the psn store before but man this is the first time I've noticed the beauty of it. Who wouldn't want a majestic fuckin bear as their theme?

Corn Love after Rocco from Mega64 recommended it on their podcast.

Pasted from my comment on the kotaku article that inspired this thread -

My current theme is the dynamic theme that was released alongside Malicious. Its Erica (the female avatar from Malicious) sitting in a chair swinging her legs back and forth while a bunch of lil shadow guys frolic around. I couldn't find a video of it, much less any images of it. There's like ZERO images for Malicious. That game is barely even known and its one of my favorite games of this year. Looks fantastic too!

Just the default one. I used the Batman Arkham Asylum one for a while, but the Joker laughing every time I did anything got on my nerves.

#18 Posted by Ducksworth (662 posts) -

I find most of the videogame related themes end up looking tacky. The classic/default theme is the one I've stuck with, usually using yellow for the color. That corn theme blew my mind though, I think i'm going to download it tonight (assuming free) just for a quick laugh.

Currently using a Tekken 6 Theme from way back in 2010... LOL!

#20 Posted by spankingaddict (2771 posts) -

I was using the Walking Dead theme , and it was awesome . Now , I'm using the Last of Us theme. I wonder if there's a DMC one...

#21 Posted by mosespippy (4675 posts) -

I rotate through the Valkyria Chronicles one, the Flower one and one of the Pixel Junk Eden ones. They all have beautiful artwork.

#22 Posted by jonnyboy (2920 posts) -

I used the classic for 2 years. Now I used the Uncharted 3 one I got free with the Uncharted double pack.

I use the coo-coo clock dynamic theme because it's suuuuuuuuper dumb.

#25 Posted by SeanCoughing (274 posts) -

Yea there are a bunch of DUMB dynamic themes on the store. I use a dynamic theme of some volcanic activity, 2.99 well spent (kinda).

#26 Posted by Hunter5024 (6161 posts) -

Classic, cause I'm fucking hardcore.

#27 Posted by DumlaoX (21 posts) -

None at the moment, though I haven't looked at the unofficial stuff created by the community yet.

#28 Posted by Sterling (2872 posts) -

Graffiti, been using it since I got my PS3 in 2009.

I consider myself a bit of a dynamic theme connoisseur.  I was actually thinking about making a post specifically to recommend good ones, since most of them are garbage and not worth $3. Here are a few quality ones.
Killzone 3 ISA/HGH Sky Theme: This is actually two separate themes.  Sorry for the shitty music.

 Afrika Theme: Zebra: It's like a window into the African savannah.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution Dynamic Theme: This one was my favorite for a long time.  It's really well executed, with crisp imagery, and stylish animation.
PixelJunk Monsters 3D: My new favorite!  The Tiki man runs around on screen through waving grass, occasionally popping out from the side or below to wave at you.  It's too damn adorable to resist.

The Ico one that came with the hd collection.

#32 Posted by smitty86 (696 posts) -

I cycle between the 2 from the Ico/SotC collection and the greatest of themes, the Heavy Rain theme. Damn, I love watching some rain fall.

#33 Posted by Stete (748 posts) -

I use the Flower theme because wind sounds are awesome.

#34 Posted by ProfessorEss (7585 posts) -


I change the color from time to time.

It's red now, to match the Christmas decorations.

#35 Posted by RustySanderke (115 posts) -

The default theme. It's pretty, the brightness depends on the time of day, and the colour changes every two weeks. Never gets old.

I switch between the PlayStation Plus dynamic theme and this one:

#37 Posted by thedj93 (1237 posts) -

i have this weird one with cartoon birds that i downloaded back when playstation plus was free for a while

#38 Posted by crusader8463 (14441 posts) -

Just the ones that come on the system. I keep trying the free ones that come on PS+ but I dislike the all so far. The animation is always dumb, or the colours of the background wash out the text so you can never read it. I used to make my own. Wonder if they took out that feature or if you still can do it.

#39 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1501 posts) -

The Pixeljunk Eden one purely because it changes the scrolling noise to something more pleasant.

#40 Posted by RobotHamster (4179 posts) -

Shadow of the Colossus the came with the HD collection.

@Spoonman671: Great idea! Get on to making that thread! (:

#43 Posted by Dixego (389 posts) -

Dark Souls dynamic theme. I love Dark Souls.

#44 Posted by JOURN3Y (230 posts) -

I always stick with the Afrika theme. I love me some zebra ass.

#45 Posted by living4theday258 (678 posts) -

Apocalypse theme

#46 Posted by csx009 (48 posts) -

i rotate the demons and dark souls themes.

#47 Posted by Phatmac (5731 posts) -

The Lsst of Us regular theme.

#48 Posted by EVO (3946 posts) -

I change mine every couple weeks or so. At the moment it's that dynamic paint swirl one PS+ users got.

#49 Posted by Tackchevy (270 posts) -

Fish Tank 4 Life

#50 Posted by RecSpec (4146 posts) -

I usually don't use one because it gets removed when the PS3 updates and I forget to put it on. 
I've been using the Sonic CD one for the past year, before that it was the Heavy Rain crime scene one.
