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

And I am talking about this beauty!

Pretty please?

In general publishers should make any pre-order theme available to buy after 1-2 years.

FUCKING... YES...

Pre-order exclusive themes are a cancer that needs to be eradicated. It's not rocket science. Give the theme out for free to people who pre-order and let everyone else buy the theme separately. You still have your shitty pre-order incentive and people who can't afford to pre-order your game can still support you down the line. So fucking annoying. This theme and the Before the Storm pre-order themes are fantastic. But yeah, don't take my money I guess.

Back on PS3 "dynamic theme" used to mean it was actually dynamic, with cool animations and shit. Now it's just some background images that change. Where are the cool 3D themes?

I'll poke a few people and see if anything can be done. No promises though, but will at least ask.
While you're at it, you could try and get them to greenlight a third Mirror's Edge game :p. (Kidding, of course, but, however unlikely it may be, I really hope it's gonna happen at some point. There's just nothing else like it out there.)

Omg this is so great that you’ve even acknowledged it, I remember having an issue with my card bouncing on my preorder back in the day and I lost the preorder theme. Would be great to grab it again.
I think EA has forgotten about ME.
One of my favourite if not my favourite series, I actually loved Catalyst as well. Really wish it had an X patch.

Wasn't it GameStop-Exclusive?
Anyway,it is a shame... pre ordered the Collectorbox and there wasn't a theme for me. I believe it was also US-exclusive.

I get annoyed by this stuff too.
I ended up buying the KH3 console theme from ebay for a.. significant amount of money, (Which I also bought the console, but didn't realise the EU verison didn't come with the theme or the pre-order keyblade both things that tipped buying it over the figure edition..)
Annoyed the keyblade isn't available for purchase in EU yet either.

But yeah there have been a lot of themes, pre-order/retailer exclusive content that kept exclusive forever and sad most publishers don't release it for purchase sometime later, seems a no brainer to me.

They still kept the original Mirror's Edge DLC Origin exclusive on PC. I don't think they'll revisit this any time soon.

Exclusive themes suck.

I am almost never going to buy full price digital to get them, so they might as well not exist. There was a really cool Persona 5 one I wanted that I think came with the digital special edition...oh well.

Pre-order themes on PS4 are the worst. I wish everyone would start selling them a year later or so. It’s basically free money after all.

Kudos to the EA person here though.

I still check US PSN every so often for the JP amazon-only exclusive FF12 Zodiac Age pre-order theme :(

It is an incredible theme.

Incredible.

And I have it because I pre-ordered the game, as I am a TRUE FAN SO NONE OF YOU CAN HAVE IT

Music makes this one. Really good.

Can we get Pro/X enhancement patches as well? It's a fucking crime to have this game stuck at 900p on both machines...

EA?... You there? You still have some good games...

I'll poke a few people and see if anything can be done. No promises though, but will at least ask.
Can you also mention Pro/X enhancement updates please? :'(

Should be doable since it's the same engine that was used in games that have X/Pro modes available.

My favourite dynamic theme will always remain "Running Sackboy" on PS3 which animated according to internal clock, good times...

And send the message that you can just wait for a sale instead of preordering? Preposterous!

Mirror’s Edge might be in the bargain bin nowadays, but they don’t wanna send the message that you can just wait for Dragon Age 4 to do the same and still get all the goodies.

Yeah, being locked out of pre-order themes sucks. Thankfully, a few become available after the game releases. The Tetris Effect pre-order theme was available to purchase shortly after launch.

I didn't know about Before the storm one. Now I'm sad.

I agree 100% with you.
