Yes, Themes are Really Coming to PS4, Too

ps4 theme 09-01-14-1

Last month, we reported on a bit of a slip from the Playstation Blogcast, confirming that custom themes were coming to the Playstation 4.

They later redacted the statement, and said it was said in error. Now we’ve learned that Sony has gone ahead and confirmed it during their pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference. Custom UI themes will be coming with system software update 2.0, which is set to hit the platform very soon.

A theme showcasing Sony Japan mascot Toro was shown (featured above) during the press conference.

In related news, Sony also confirmed custom themes for the Playstation Vita earlier this morning.

    I hope consumers will be able to created their own theme for PS4 since, I doubt that Sony will have a RWBY theme on the PS Store.

    I’m glad we get themes in the first place. The standard one is really boring.

    I am glad also but, I don’t feel like just getting a theme to get rid of the original

    They should work on getting a RWBY theme though, simply by virtue of how awesome RWBY is.
