So be on the lookout for those Booster Packs, and producers from Creat and Tik will be coming atcha soon with more juicy details with some action-packed blog posts.
But in the meantime, as a token of our appreciation for the tremendous response we have received from our recent releases on PSN, and since we are in such a giving mood, I'm happy to announce the release of FREE Themes for your PS3 available tomorrow on the PlayStation Store!
So, instead of starring mindlessly into some wacky swirling color mass on your XMB, why not be the envy of all your family and friends by downloading a FREE Theme from one of your favorite Creat/Tik PSN games?
How can you go wrong? Check out some screenshots for the Themes below, and remember, friends don't let friends have boring XMBs!
262w ago - To quote from Sam Fletcher: Browsing my Hong Kong PSN account today, I noticed that the Dark Mist theme cost money to download. $7.00 HKD, translates to $0.89 USD (or £0.45) but thats still a lot more than downloading the themes for free.
X-Box 360 users already pay a dollar or two for themes, and maybe now Sony are following suit.
Whether this will become a trend followed by the other stores is yet to be seen, but maybe all official themes from now on will come with a price.
Oh well, I'll stick to the classic XMB wave, or failing that, a user made theme. :P
