So I can't seem to find any way to change the background on my PS4. Is this option there somewhere?

It's just always strange to me when they leave out such basic things that were already and established, and liked part of a previous system. Yea I know some people don't care but it's one of those things that's just come to be expected and I'm surprised they left it out. When a newer model of a phone comes out they don't suddenly drop all the basic features and add them back in over time. Things like this make me feel like they rushed this system out. 

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm basically happy with it. The three games I've played so far have looked and played incredibly well. But I still don't understand why such a major release from a hugh company like Sony comes so stripped down in functionality. There are a number of features that were staples of the PS3 that are suprisingly absent from the PS4.

It's a little ridiculous that there are no custom themes available.... not even more than one default theme??!  But there is sound on the dash now, which gives me hope we'll actually be able to get themes with custom sound/music someday!

It'll happen, be patient. They likely leave out a lot of little things that can be patched in with an update in order to shove it out the door as fast as possible.
