So I made this Mass Effect 3 PS3 theme...

...and I thought what would be a better place to ask for some feedback than the GB forums. The theme contains 4 backgrounds, 3 of them are based on the fanart made by Patryk Garrett and for the one in the preview picture I used screenshots from the Mass Effect 3 trailer. Of course there is also a new XMB design and a specific sound. Hope you like it.

Edit (18.07.11):
Big update: I completely remade the backgrounds, they now concentrate on one specific character (or two in one case) in a more fitting environment. The theme now contains 8 backgrounds instead of 4. I uploaded those and also a new XMB preview so you can take a look.

Nice, but those icons are pretty scary. The ones with the characters heads by them. That's the only issue I have with it :)

Yeah I think maybe just don't use the heads and it is actually really good.

Looks pretty good, but as stated above me, those heads are kinda out of place. I would have either taken them out or done something to them, I dunno what but hey.

Okay, I also uploaded the theme without the heads and you can see another background.

I like icon style 2 with background 1.

Other than that, nice work.

@ajamafalous: The backgrounds are both in both versions of the theme. Like I said, the theme contains 4 backgrounds.

Put it on a USB stick in the folder PS3/THEME. Then you go to theme settings and choose install. Now you should be able to install the theme from your USB stick.
 
@Mr Skeleton: This is the old version of the theme. Those character heads are no longer in it. Here is the preview that shows how it looks now.
