Another nice cool feature of the PS3 is the ability to customise the look os the user interface with theming.

However, the annoyting part is that downloading these themes from either the PS3 Store or other websites can take quite sometime as a lot of them are in the region of 70MBs or more. It doesn’t allow the option of downloading these themes in the backgroud.

So what can you do you ask?

Well if you have an external usb HDD, you could install them from here.

Firstly go to your favourtie PS3 theme websites and download them to your hard drive. Here are a few to get started:

www.ps3-themes.com
www.allps3themes.com
www.psu.com

In order for your PS3 to recognise these files when you have connected your hard drive, you will need to set up a particular directory structure on your external hard drive. Here’s what you need to do.

Create a folder called “PS3”, within this folder create another called “THEME”. Copy your downloaded files to these folders and connect your drive to your playstation.

From within the playstation3, go to System Settings and choose Theme Settings from the menu. In here, choose install. You should see your connected USB hard drive. Choose the theme you want to install and voila!
