PlayStation 20th Anniversary Celebrations Include Free SHAREFactory Theme, Vote on Best PlayStation Game Ever

September 9, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

With the 20th anniversary of PlayStation in full swing, Sony has created a free SHAREfactory theme for North America (out later today) and Europe, which includes the original start-up screen and more.

Here’s what the description says:

It’s been 20 years since the launch of the original PlayStation.

Help us celebrate by downloading the PlayStation 20th Anniversary SHAREfactory Theme and relive some of your favorite PlayStation memories of the past.

This SHAREfactory theme includes:

  • 4 intros
  • 4 outros
  • 11 title clips
  • 8 custom transitions
  • 26 stickers
  • 4 background images

As a note: “This SHAREfactory Theme can only be used with the SHAREfactory app for PS4 and is NOT a Theme for your PS4 home screen.”

If you’re looking for an actual console theme, the PlayStation 20th Anniversary static theme from December is still free.

In addition to the big 20th Anniversary Sale happening right now on the North American PS Store, Sony Computer Entertainment America President Shawn Layden talked about some of the other festivities they have planned:

Before I go, I wanted to point out that PlayStation.Blog is celebrating PlayStation’s big 2-0 today and tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled. Look out for a tough-as-nails trivia quiz, a video unboxing of the original PlayStation, and a chance for PlayStation fans to officially name the best PlayStation game of all time.

What PlayStation game will get your vote as the best of all time?
