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!]

Massive thanks and props to the people from EA here and there for making this happen. I bought this on disc at release hoping this theme would make it public.

Also, I still have hope for a new game in the series one day. ;)

Ooooooh, this MIGHT make me change the theme I've had for 2 years now... MIGHT.


(at a minute 30 he stops talking)

You simply cannot beat this. The click tone, is very satisfying and soft, the music/sound is just the sound of wind and its a dark background that is dynamic so it doesnt take too much precedent.

I cannot switch it out!

I'm still bummed I will probably never get the Uncharted 4 Mountain Vista theme you got for pre-ordering. It's so pretty.

I just stick with the free themes, some of them are pretty good. The Dark Souls 3 free theme and the Horizon Zero Dawn 1 year anniversary themes are especially cool.
Any theme without music, or that just uses the default ambient PS4 music sucks

Can we make our own themes like on PS3? I don't just mean a wallpaper, but on PS3 you could make your own icons, sounds and theme that cycled Wallpapers itself.

Nop. Some of the standart themes have some costumization options but nothing that deep. You can also select any pic u have in ur PS4 to make it ur theme, but the icons and music will be the deafult ones.

I dont even knew you could do that on PS3 :P

It wasn't a feature on PS3 itself, but Sony released tools for use on PC, you just copied to PS3 via USB memory or whatever once made.

Wish we could get a version without the logo

Also the game itself was super underrated and just as good if not better than the first one

I like chill themes. Meanwhile i found this yesterday:


Definitely will be checking out the Mirrors Edge theme too.
Nice. I'll probably buy that one. Thumbs up for the fittingly calm menu sounds as well, which seem to be an oversight with some other themes.

Any recommendations for a theme like this...


...which would have similarly dark and foreboding ambient sound, but with a more fitting image, like the one you linked, and muted menu sounds. I don't really like characters or logos in themes.

I don't get why these things aren't just for sale separate from any preorder bonus outta the gate.

Now if only we could get other pre order themes available :(

There have been a few other good ones too locked behind pre orders of other games I wanted but didn't want to get said game digital.

Amazing work by everyone involved in this thread from EA and of course OP. That's incredible community support.

Now who can fix the Skate 2 PS3 network here? :P

^ Thanks, found the EU version, too bad themes are oddly region locked.

It's a fantastic theme, kudos EA reps.
