Sony wants to celebrate the golden era of PlayStation when the console just came into being and became a massive gaming platform for decades. A stylish and retro PS2 theme is coming to the PS4 console soon.
The team has confirmed that players will be able to get their hands on the PS2 theme on December 6th which is hardly a week to go. The idea is to commemorate the era and the cool effects, design they had back in those days.
By default, the design didn’t change drastically as Sony wanted to keep things familiar and intuitive for their players. The purple templates gives a brand new look and takes you back in time which is what the developers probably wanted to convey.
It even includes sounds from the past along with the icons and dashboard which was used in the original Playstation 2 console that you can experience on the new generation Playstation 4 platform with all the latest games and functionalities
They have also released a video to show all the design changes and how they work.
