Another year has passed, and there are still no PS5 themes, much to the chagrin of fans who remember the PS4 days – those pretty dynamic themes, often accompanied by beautiful music. Sony has never explained why it removed a major UI customization option, but that hasn’t stopped fans from requesting its return.
Sony is notoriously unpredictable, so while it may appear unlikely that dynamic themes will be introduced two years into the PS5’s life cycle, never say never.
Players are demanding answers for the lack of themes in online forums and social media threads discussing PS5 features and wish lists for future additions.
“Allow themes or, at the very least, custom backgrounds,” one Reddit user suggested over the weekend in a popular thread. “I miss my PS4 theme of a small creek bed,” another user wrote. A third user recalled a relaxing cherry blossom theme with a real day/night cycle and seasonal cycle that allowed players to see the tree grow, bloom, and fall depending on the time of year. “No background of any game will restore my peace,” they wrote.
