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.

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.

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.

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 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'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?

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

I change the color from time to time.

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

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

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.

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

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.
