September 1, 2009 // 4:10 pm - The new PS3 Firmware 3.0 has changed the way the XMB looks.

One of the new features included is animated themes, but at first glance none are available. Keep looking, as there is already a free Afrika Dynamic PS3 Theme available in the Japanese PSN Store as of right now.

Excluding the free one above, the first regular Dynamic / Animated PS3 Theme costs a premium price of $2.99. Available right now in the PlayStation Store, you can download the LittleBigPlanet animated theme that was shown when PS3 Firmware 3.0 debuted.

Some videos of the new Dynamic / Animated PS3 Themes are below:

Also if someone put it here, you can't install it on your ps3 because the new dynamic themes are in .PKG (not .p3t) and you know that .pkg are encrypted files that cannot be opened or installed in the ps3 (since now)...

so THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE THE AFRIKA'S THEME IS GET IT FROM THE JAP PSN!..

I don't know if there's a way to extract a theme from a PS3 once it's been installed. However, there's tons of guides online about how to make a jp account. And it's free

One of the reasons I submitted the news is that it really sickened me to see people comment that NXE looked better than XMB! Well, back then it was more of a taste/fanboysm thing which one was better, but now with these dynamic themes (let's hope there will be some free - user generated) I think the answer is only one! I'll leave it to you to find out which one for yourself!
