Dynamic Themes - No Preview Anymore???

[ Edited ]

Why would they remove the option to watch a trailer of the dynamic themes?  Who is going to purchase a theme for $3 without being able to see what it is or what it does?  I guess I won't be buying many themes anymore.

 I don't know why Sony removed the previews for Dynamic Themes. I guess that after Sony removed "Keyboard Support" from the Playstation Store and removed "Recommendations" where you could send a link to a store item to a friend in a PSN message, Sony said "What else can we remove from the Playstation Store to make it worse"?

 

I certainly don't understand how removing useful options from the Playstation Store, makes the Playstation Store "Better". But then again, what do I know?

I've been wondering this myself here lately. For about a month now there have not been any trailers for dynamic themes and it pisses me off! I made a thread and no one from Sony responded. Can't get Ask Playstation to respond on twitter either. I refuse to buy a theme if I can't preview it.

Um probably because they noticed a decline in theme purchases since they added the trailers? It's all about the bottom line, they don't care if you end up buying something you don't like, that you weren't able to preview

You can YouTube the themes and see them on there before purchase. 

I hope people haven't forgotten that.

Hah, I recently saw a preview of the "Lost At Sea Dynamic Theme", and there was such massive lag with the waves....Which is probably why it had a crappy rating.....Of course you wouldn't buy it after seeing that.....

 

Shadoefax, I used Youtube to do this before they added the tailer/preview feature, it's just a bit of a hassel. Youtube and Twitch, etc are what we have to use mostly to get ian idea  of the games before we buy. Oh yeah, I think a video store is opening up here actually. I haven't rented any games or movies since Roger's screwed us all over(I actually like going out to the Movie/Game rental stores.

The reason why they do not have previews for most dynamic themes is because most of them are junk that a little kid could make on their computer.  The really good ones have previews.  So far I have only seen about 4 or 5 dynamic themes that are actually any good.
