Could Plus members please get more free themes?

11 replies 144 views Edited Feb 10, 2013

We haven't had a single one since the store had it's overhaul. I was hoping for a Christmas one, but nope. Maybe New Years? No again. For the release of Ni No Kuni? Not a chance. I am not holding my breath over getting one for Valentine's Day, either. It is probably not something most people care about but I like changing my themes around for holidays or just for different moods and would like some more to choose from.

I really wish they'd give us a ton more themes and avatars, also. I mean, how hard can it be? Draw up some themes and avatars is pretty darn easy.

Well you can use Gimp to make your icons and there are programs for building PS3 themes, you put your images where you want them and you're done. That's only for static, if you want a dynamic theme you'll need some more resources. Let me know how hard it is.

Trust me, I know all the latest theme building stuff lol I make themes from time to time, I've made a couple dynamic/slidshow too.

 

I loved the exclusive avatars they used to give us, and sadly I missed the halloween ones a couple years back, and I was really hoping they'd drop them again last time for newcomers to download, but NO Smiley Sad I was begging for them on the blog lol

I would be happy if they gave us some of the pay themes that are already made for free, I have been wanting one of the rage face ones but I can't justify to myself spending 2 bucks on it when I have gotten full games for a dollar during sales.

Funny ... except it is not.

 

I'll have to search, but I remember reading that the approval process for avatars was pretty **bleep** long and complex.  Meaning, yes they are easy and cheap to make, but because of Sony's policies, it is not worth the time and effort of most developers.

 

I too would like more themes and avatars.  Nothing to do with PS+ but you would think Sony would offer up themes for the Vita.  I have made my own (talking various wall papers and resizing).

That's why I'm talking about exclusive ones from Sony like we've got in the past, not from devs. I'm sure the approval process for Sony themselves isn't near what it is for devs.
