What PS3 theme do you use?

Being in the Festive Christmas mood, I've had the Fireplace theme since Thanksgiving that was free a while back.

Journey Dynamic Theme I got from PSN+

#53 Posted by Redbullet685 (6178 posts) -

I use the Sound Shapes theme because its looks awesome.

#54 Posted by Burrich (8 posts) -

I use the Prince of Persia Trilogy Dynamic Theme. Has the Sands of Time loading icon spinning in an area reminiscent of the time portals in Warrior Within. Very cool, not too active or busy to be distracting. And all the icons are easily visible. I never use any theme that makes the XMB icons at all difficult to see.

The Ico one that came with the HD collection.

I use the Skyrim Dynamic Theme, even though I only play Elder Scrolls games on PC

#57 Posted by DarthOrange (4089 posts) -

Currently using the Need For Speed: Most Wanted Pre-Order Theme with this as the background image 

#58 Posted by mlarrabee (3185 posts) -

The default.

When it comes to themes and avatar icons available for download, XBL puts PSN to shame. Unfathomable depths of shame.

I have both systems and I wish the aforementioned disparity didn't exist.

The Giant Bomb theme, duh!

#60 Posted by Ducksworth (670 posts) -

I want that Corn theme, but I can't find it. So far I've used the default theme and alternate colors every once in a while.

I am currently using the flower one that came with the Journey Collection.

oddly enough there arent a lot of dynamic themes on the ps store where i live. and most of the ones that are there are shitty as hell. but im using the heavy rain one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNBNiIMsFd8

i like it its dark enough and nothing crazy happens.

I have a sweet ZX Spectrum theme I got off some website. Do I care about the Spectrum? Nope. But it does look really cool as my XMB theme.

#64 Posted by Demoskinos (16114 posts) -

The theme I unlocked via FFXIII-2

#65 Posted by Fluttercry (226 posts) -

I have a London theme. Can't remember the exact name

#66 Posted by Demyx (3240 posts) -

I'm using one that has mac themed icons. Its my favorite.

#67 Posted by BombKareshi (1042 posts) -

I'm using a Digger HD one.
My girlfriend (and owner of the console) uses one from Final Fantasy XIII-2.

#68 Posted by Stradimus (78 posts) -

I have been rocking the same free one I got for being a PSPlus member. I still kind of like it even if it isn't that special.

#69 Posted by Fredchuckdave (6749 posts) -

Double Dragon Neon

#70 Posted by GeneralZod37 (293 posts) -

Underwater Disco. Didn't even know I had it until I went browsing through my themes. It is glorious.

#71 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2351 posts) -

Using the Journey dynamic theme that I think comes free with either the game or just in the PSN store.

Wartime pin-up girls. Wife is into pin-up things.

Still in season with the Yule log screen.

#76 Edited by ztran (3 posts) -

I like the nature themes

#77 Posted by nikito_be (5 posts) -

Fish Tank 4 Life

Indeed. :D I've recently gone back to that one.

I've used the Heavy Rain raindrop one, and the Journey theme for a long time. Also, a seasonal theme during Christmas time, always.

#79 Posted by MonkeyKing1969 (3486 posts) -

I don't use any of the dynamic ones...most seem trashy. I just use the standard icons alonmg with a wallpaper that I change from time to time. I hope Sony totally reworks how and who makes themes for PS4. Most of the PS3 themes seem to be made by idiost who couldn't draw worth a damn.

#80 Edited by casper_ (914 posts) -

i use this one called fantasy mountain. its like little cardboard/construction paper animated mountains/rivers/clouds its pretty cool.

#81 Edited by Nictel (2651 posts) -

Default at this moment. I'm still looking for a nice theme, kind of done with the ones I have.

#82 Posted by Blu3V3nom07 (4183 posts) -

I switch between Assassin's Creed III, and Far Cry 3. They're the free ones I got with the game, so Meh!

#83 Edited by btsjigs (30 posts) -

I switch between Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia and Arkham Asylum.. But like the guy said earlier, the noises on that can be quite annoying.

#84 Edited by Kaiserreich (793 posts) -

Darkstalker Kaathe theme. First thing I downloaded from PSN.

#85 Edited by GrantHeaslip (1746 posts) -

I use the default. Whenever I’ve poked around the themes menu, all of the ones I’ve accumulated look cheesy or just plain awful. A lot of themes have big contrast issues with menu text as well.

It also helps that the PS3 always shows the default theme while it’s booting. Leaving it on default makes the boot process look way smoother since it’s not jarringly changing themes.

#86 Edited by EightBitShik (1447 posts) -

I really couldn't find a theme I liked, wish I could have a Persona 4 theme. I was able to find a weird Japanese girl theme with a sword and some floating petals. I've never screwed around with the Dash on my Ps3 before can you put your own images in the background?

#87 Posted by cclemon36 (183 posts) -

@eightbitshik: Yes, you can have your choice of image as a background. The picture has to be on the ps3's hard drive, go to where it is and there should be an option to set as background, by pressing triangle, I think.

Also, there's this thread.

#88 Posted by Rokkaku (247 posts) -

The Neon Graffiti one. Before that I had the Dragon dynamic theme, which was pretty good.

#89 Edited by Slag (5364 posts) -

FF 13-2's, cause it's about the only one I have beyond the standard ones. And I don't care enough to search others out.

#90 Posted by sjswhite (6 posts) -

I use the fireplace theme they released a couple Christmases ago. It makes sure I stay classy.

#91 Posted by MightyDuck (1610 posts) -

Currently using the dynamic fish tank theme that was free from when PSN was down.

#92 Posted by FistGrenade (9 posts) -

I've had the Shadow of the Colossus dynamic theme for what seems like an eternity. It's so peaceful and soothing

#93 Posted by bobafettjm (1680 posts) -

I am using the Double Dragon Neon one that I got for free.

#94 Posted by FesteringNeon (2223 posts) -

Wow, alot of Double Dragon Neon's. Weird. I usually switch the icon set to match the wallpaper I use in the background. Currently I'm using a Bioshock Infinite wallpaper, but if I do dynamic I use a nature one or any of there 1239123012 other themes I seemed to have collected over the years.

#95 Posted by 49th (2979 posts) -

The free ones from "the studio" on PS+ are nice. Right now it's an abstract art kind of thing with spinning shape bits or something like that.

#96 Posted by snake911 (211 posts) -

I've been using the Neo Geo Station theme. I like how it shows a different background depending on the time of day.

Pretty neat that they included SNK of Japan's old mascot, G-Mantle in a few of the wallpapers.

#97 Posted by EnvyTheJealous (5 posts) -

I've been using the Shadow of the Colossus dynamic theme that came with my copy ever since.. well, release.

Until this moment I was unaware PS3s had themes. So I use the default, apparently.
