Getting bored of the various free XMB themes available from the PlayStation Store? Have some spare cash lying around? The PlayStation Store now offers premium XMB themes for you to purchase. The PlayStation Network has teamed up with a few partners, including Smobile & Disruptive Media Publishers, to distribute premium themes from PlayStation Network. They have content offerings that range in type from NCAA College licenses to beauties on the beach to original cartoons and anime. These themes were created specifically for the PS3 and have special backgrounds, XMB icons and, in some cases, sounds.
A new "Premium Themes" section under Themes & Wallpapers is now available so you can easily access the paid content. There is also a preview option available so you can see the theme before downloading it. Sony plan to upload between six to ten new themes a month with the first helping out in todays PlayStation Store update.
