Featured offers for PlayStation Plus subscribers will be coming down on April 5th, so you have until then to take advantage of what has been offered.
Sonic the Hedgehog will be returning to $4.99, so grab it if you already have not.
Wakeboarding HD is going to be $9.99 unless you grab it at its current price of $3.99. The game is fun and is a solid purchase in my eyes.
Swarm is heading on up to $14.99, so if you aren’t sold yet from our numerous articles on it, you should be; currently at $11.99.
Mini Squadron PlayStation minis is $1 until the 5th, so grab it and add it to your collection (unless you plan on spending an extra dollar to get it later at $1.99).
Mega Man 3 is at $3.00, and can be found under the PS1 Imports section; it will be returning to $5.99.
Check after the jump to see what’s coming next month!
For those who watch the Discovery Channel, Shark Week officially kicked off last night. It’s probably one of the most celebrated weeks in all of documentary television. Given that, I thought to myself how cool it would be if there was a dynamic theme to go along with it. To my surprise, that’s what I came across.
I decided to browse SCEA’s Viddler profile, because, occasionally, they would post videos before they put a story on the blog, or not post them at all. Such was the case with this video, which shows off an underwater look at hammerheads swimming by above, with the water rippling on the surface. Pretty awesome, and will probably be the first dynamic theme I would have bought. It apparently became available on last week’s update :P.
After purchasing the theme, I have noticed that the lighting in the background is adjusted based on the system clock. Really cool!
According to the official EU PSBlog, a new Heavy Rain Dynamic theme, as well as 14 avatars will be available today on the PS Store.
I know a whole bunch of you are interested in and/or big fans of Demon’s Souls. Looks like its popularity in Japan was enough for Sony to make a Dynamic Theme available for purchase. The theme itself costs 200 yen ($2.25 US).
From the looks of it, the theme randomly loads up different views of the “Nexus”, kind of like the way regular themes with multiple wallpapers do. It’s far from flashy and doesn’t have too much movement, but at least it’s not static images! Given the popularity of the franchise in western territories, do you think it would, or should, make its way here? And if so, would you purchase it? In my opinion, it’s always nice to see more and more dynamic themes available on the PSN.
