[UPDATE] A selection of PS3 Themes for your enjoyment

So, you've got firmware 2.00 now - right?

And you've played around with the XMB customisation, yeah?

So by now you're already sick of just flipping between the original and Air Paint themes, aren't you?

PS3 Attitude comes to the rescue with these three official themes from the land of the rising sun. You can download them and put them on a USB stick, Memory Stick or other external media in a folder called PS3-->THEME and then Install them from the Themes menu.

Or you can browse PS3 Attitude on your PS3 and click on the theme of your choice below. This route is simpler as it will Install the new PS3 themes for you.

Just click the preview picture of the theme you'd like and off you go!

More themes will follow soon...

If you're more adventurous and want to create your own theme, PlayStation Australia now have the Theme Compiler with English instructions.

[UPDATE] Some people are experiencing an issue when trying to download these via the PS3 browser. If you have a problem, hope over to the Japanese PlayStation website and try there instead whilst I fix things here...

On all the websites i have tried, the p3tcompiler comes up for less than a second, then closes. This has happened with more than just me.

It would be really great if someone could make a tutorial detailing exactly what to do to create your own themes for people like me that need things spelled out when it comes to scripting. I know that it will be a while before someone does, as this was just released, but it will be great when they do. At the very least, some examples would be nice.

Jesus... Anyway, thanks for the themes Dolph. Starting to make my own now. I was wondering if you own a US PS3 since the Uncharted demo is region-locked. I was telling a few other friends to download it NOW, but they couldn't. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come. I've got four other accounts and I'd miss some of their content.

After you have access the p3tcompiler's file, click on the sample file and browse through until you found sample.xml file and right click the mouse and choose open with p3complier program. ENJOY!

here's an OS/X based theme i created, hope all the f--ktards above learn to read, it's not that hard to figure out how to make them, i used notepad and paintshop, then rewrote the .xml file to suit my design and compiled it.

I can't get the compiler to work. The compiler opens for a second and then shut. Help!!!

Remember, the compiler is not a Windows Application with a nice user interface - it is a 'command line' application. Launching it by itself won't do anything but open a screen for about 1 second.

Read through the instructions again but if you want a better experience, try the Theme Compiler software which you'll find hosted at PS3-Themes - a link to their site is in our left sidebar.
