PS4 Won’t Have Dynamic Themes for Purchase & You Can’t Change Your Background, Says Shuhei Yoshida

Continuing our journey through Shuhei Yoshida’s hundreds of tweets over the past few days, he gave out both some good news and bad news when it comes to themes and avatars on the PlayStation 4.

In bad news, the PS4 won’t support user customized themes, you can’t use any picture as your wallpaper, and there won’t be dynamic themes for purchase. Similarly, you can’t change your PS4 backgrounds and there won’t be an alternate OS that looks like the XMB. Since it seems odd that there at least won’t be dynamic themes for purchase, we’ll let you know if any of these points change in the future.

In good news though, you will be able to import a photo from Facebook for your avatar on PS4, and old PS3 owners will keep their PSN avatars.

What do you think of all this bad news? Let us know in the comments below.
