Dear EA: can we kindly after 3 years get the chance to buy this Mirrors edge pre-order theme? [UPDATE: EA delivers, now available for free!]

There's a couple of pre-order themes that I'd love to get.

This one for Mirror's Edge is great, I'd totally buy it.

I love those kinds of themes but got ME on pc and had no idea about it til after it was out.

I really wish you could just buy pre order themes or wish they'd at least offer them like 6 months down the road or so, I mean it seems rather reasonable to me and it's literally just leaving money on the table when they could be making more.

As an avid collector of PS4 themes, I would absolutely buy that at $2.99. Really beautiful.

The trend of Themes as locked pre-order bonuses has been really disheartening this generation. And a missed opportunity, too. I feel like publishers could give their game a chance to shine again on their one-year anniversary if they put out a tweet with fun concept art, a developer interview article/vid, and announced that all previously-locked extras like pre-order themes and in-game retailer exclusives were now available for purchase. (And if the game sold well, a chance to thank fans for purchasing X millions of copies.)
Please listen to this person. Would totally buy that Mirrors Edge theme too.

Talking of Mirrors Edge pre order bonuses, I got an awesome t shirt with my 360 copy back in the day.

You just have to create a japanese account, download it and use it on your main account.
If you don't know how to navigate in the japanese store you can scroll down on the PS4 menu when P5 is highlighted and see all the DLCs.
Download what? I have a jp account. I dont think we are talking about the same themes.

I actually thought of this theme the other day and how much I wished I could have bought it!! Huge ME fan and I'd really love to put a few dollars down for it (Aus region pls).

Same for Wipeout themes locked on preorder:


I'd be so disappointed if I missed out on the WipEout ones. Just yesterday changed mine back to the cool dynamic one. Seriously would be great to have some standardisation over theme publication.

I also dislike themes only bundled with digital versions of games. Like, I bought your game on disc, let me give you more money for the theme?

I'll poke a few people and see if anything can be done. No promises though, but will at least ask.
Thanks so much for looking into this.

It's weird to say, but it would mean a lot to be able to get this theme. I like to count Mirror's Edge as one of my all-time favorite series but missed out on this because a friend of mine bought Catalyst for my birthday. When I saw this thread, it brought a huge smile to my face (which I needed, just returning from the ER for kidney stones lol).

Just popping this thread back up to say it's not been ignored. We've had some discussions within the team and will shortly be requesting our friends at Sony push it live. All going well you should see it in 1-2 weeks.

Well I'll be damned, thats fucking awesome. I've wanted these theme forever but pre-ordering was just never in the cards. This really makes my day. Thank you and all the folks you had to poke to make it happen.

Holy shit, I didn't see this thread at first but this is amazing. ERA members are the best, thanks for trying even if nothing comes from this.

That’s awesome to hear! I’m a big ME fan, especially of Catalyst, so I’ll definitely be picking this up.

Incredible work!

But I won't feel special if someone else has the theme so I've taken the liberty of buying EA to stop this theme from getting out

Awesome! Thanks for doing that.

Thanks to you and everyone behind the scenes at DICE/EA who made this happen. It's silly to say, but stuff like this just warms my heart.

Can't wait!

This is my feel good moment of the week, and I don’t even care about themes.

Wow that is gorgeous, I'm currently still on the classic Playstation theme because of the nice background song but I would definitely switch to this if it came out for purchase. Thanks for at least trying F8RGE!

We need more themes with peaceful background songs.

Woah, bought!

Anyone else have chill theme recommendations?

Freaking awesome that this is happening.

Hopefully other publishers follow suit... I'm talking Sony in particular. So many themes locked to pre-orders that its ridiculous or timed events on PlayStation Live website with no love for EU members. I am salty about that God of War: A New Beginning theme.

Just make every theme available after three months or six months, please!
