This PS2-style theme for PS4 will make you feel extremely nostalgic


If you find yourself yearning for the glory days of the PlayStation 2, you’re not alone. The theme designers at Truant Pixel feel the same way, and they have a cure for your ills.

This “Legacy Dashboard Dynamic Theme” for the PlayStation 4 mimics the sights and sounds of the original PS2 dashboard theme nearly identically, and is a true nostalgia trip.

“After multiple prototypes over the last two years, each of which were designed to mimic functional aspects of the PS2 Dashboard, we have been given the opportunity to combine multiple disparate elements into a single piece of theme software which mimics the sights, sounds, and functionality of the PlayStation 2 Dashboard,” said Truant Pixel in the video’s description.

When you start up your PS4 using this theme, you’ll hear that familiar PS2 booting sound, as well as the “whoosh” noise that accompanied the PlayStation 2 logo. Long-time PlayStation gamers will feel right at home.

The theme has been designed for 1080p, 4K/UHD, and OLED displays, and will go on sale on Dec. 6 in the US and EU for just $2.99.
