PS4 Update 2.0 Will Bring Themes to the Console

Not to be outdone by the PS Vita’s theme feature announcement, the PS4 also gets in on the action.

PlayStation fans looking to bring themes to their PS4, can now look forward to the upcoming 2.0 update. Towards the tail end of the SCEJA Press Conference 2014, Sony officially announced its plans for themes to make their way to the PlayStation 4.

Like on the PS3, users will be able to customize the look and feel of their PlayStation 4 user interface which will include themes inspired by games available on the platform.

The PlayStation 4 2.0 software update is expected to arrive sometime in September.

Update: below you can check out an animated GIF of the themes showcased at the conference, courtesy of Reddit user TiberiusAbadon

    Yup, they let this slip during their blogcast after Gamescom. Glad to hear it’s official. Definitely looking forward to spicing up my PS4 with sick themes 🙂

    I just want MP3 playback really 🙁 Just want to play my music at the background for some games.
    Hope that is in the next update and not pointless things like this :-/ That top pick does look cool tho 😀

    Groovy just groovy.

    Sorry if im oblivious to these features but, why are these just coming out on ps4? The mp3 play too if it ever will. Didnt ps3 already have these features? We could’ve been able to port themes or wallpapers.

    I am guessing the answer is that it is not as simple as I think?

  • That is so awesome!!!! I want a The Walking Dead, The Last of Us, Bloodborne, and a MGS: Phantom Pain theme!

  • Ciaran

    oh thank god the blue default theme is slowly driving me insane!

  • jacksjus

    Best announcement of 2.0 so far.

  • RaGing_Wild

    Well, it looks like they’re slowly implementing what we’re asking for. Thank goodness they listen to their customers’ ideas.

    Hmm, it actually looks better than i expected, nice! Now if they could only get rid of the stuttering you get when scrolling fast through your games. Also, Sony, you’re being awful slow on these fw updates, so you better have everything else everybody has been asking for in there.

      more like end of October to the middle of November
