PS4 themes download not ready for 2.0 update

Some of you may have seen some comments from Sony within the last few days, seemingly confirming that PS4 themes download for consoles would be coming with the highly anticipated PS4 2.0 update which Sony has already promised will arrive for the 2014 Holiday season.

Unfortunately though, we have an update to bring you on this and it’s not good news. Sony has since clarified that a PS4 themes update has not been confirmed and the people responsible for stating that it was – was made by mistake.

You can see Sony backtrack by recapping the events over at Neogaf here, when Sony initially said that it would be coming in their official PlayStation Blogcast.

It’s no secret that PS4 users would love to customize that home space and given that it was a standard feature on PS3, it has to be one of the pending features that is currently on Sony’s ‘to-do list’.

It doesn’t seem like one of the more ‘demanding’ PS4 features to add, compared to say DLNA so we do understand the frustration from fans on why another simple PS4 feature hasn’t arrived yet.

PS4 update 2.0 is promising very good things for the console though, as Share Play could change the system in a big way. Are you hoping to download PS4 themes very soon? Give us your thoughts on the initial news, followed by the backtrack.

Themes? Who cares?

Totally agree with you Tony. Any features that were already available last gen, should have been ready this gen. I think both consoles were rushed out for release. Probably because technology is improving so quickly now, they would have looked dated if they waited any longer.


The PS4 & XBox One were clearly not ready for public release at the back-end of last year. Both consoles still have major issues, missing features and a severe lack of quality games, not to mention nearly every release title being delayed, quite severely. This all points to the consoles being rushed out ready for the “console war”. The “console war” should have been a huge benefit to gamers, with both development houses pushing and competing to create a superior product, game developers being given plenty of time to perfect their titles and extra features being crammed into the UI.… Read more »


I guess PS4 themes are already there, but Sony holds them back.
In my opinion they try to constantly allocate their updates about a long time, so they can say:
