Re: Themes Now Expire?

Aug 11, 2010

I think Sony wants it to expire, however doesn't have the ability to kill it if it's already installed (unless they have a hidden 'kill" content switch built in to the PS3 OS). I think they will probably remove it from your download list after it's expired.

Games PS1 (100+), PS2 (140+), PS3 (100+), PSP (34+)

Is that the expiration date that it would be removed from your system or the expiration date that Sony will no longer allow that for downloads? IE Wipeout HD is no longer available as it was a first month only deal, same with themes, ps1 classics etc from that month. Maybe thats how they'll prevent shared content or content being downloaded after its available?

Actually now that I type that it doesn't make sense lol. There shouldn't be an expiration date at all considering they said themes were free to keep and you've downloaded it already. Bleh, I give up

well, they could do it like game and just have the theme stop working and if you are using it it would go back to the default theme. However I think it may be a mistake, sony already stated Avatars and Themes are yours to keep forever, I don't think they would go back on their word, it wouldn't look good for them.

I have to hope you're being sarcastic and not simply blind to truth.  Let's review a little:

 

 

  • DualShock is impossible to combine with Sixaxis
  • Full Backwards compatibility is important in a console
  • OtherOS will not be removed from older model "phat" PS3s

 

 

And these are just the three big ones that everyone can think of.

Do you remember the ApocalyPS3?  The PS3 has more than just one clock.  Changing that one clock only changes what you see.  The PS3 still knows what date and time it really is.  Well except for on December 31st, 1999.  Smiley Tongue

This is confusing... How can Themes expire exactly? I thought they were free to keep!

As horrible as that theme is, I wish it would have expired five minutes before I checked it out. It's a mistake though, because they'd announce changes like that. Like they did with the whole DLC thing.
