Valiant Unveils Cool Themes for Playstation 4

Posted on August 20, 2015 at 7:20 am by Tyler Waterman

Anyone who knows me will tell you I am borderline obsessed with wallpapers. Phones, computers, video game consoles, every device we have gives you some method of creating a cool background for it, and sometimes I feel like I care more about picking those than I do about using the devices themselves! As a big fan of the Playstation 4, I’m constantly searching for the sweetest themes available, but to be honest, most of the offerings are pretty lame.

However, it looks like my search for the coolest themes for PS4 is over, as Valiant has unveiled a killer lineup of cool themes for the PS4, brought to us by The Powell Group. Not only do these themes look cool, and highlight most of the coolest characters around, they actually look like they’re designed to look good around the PS4 menus, which unfortunately isn’t’ the case for many of the other themes available. I’m hoping there will be more on the way as well, as some key characters aren’t represented just yet. (No Ninjak or Eternal Warrior? I need those in my life!)

Check out the themes below… which one will be gracing your console?

Brought back from the dead and infused with cutting-edge nano­technology, Bloodshot’s nanites made him a nearly unstoppable kill­ing machine.

But after defying his programming and escaping his captors, Blood­shot now fights to rediscover to the secret of his true identity – but remains haunted by the past that nearly destroyed him.!/en-us/games/themes/valiant-entertainment-bloodshot-theme-1/cid=UP2176-CUSA01679_00-TPGVEBLOODSHT401
