Maybe you’ve got a new PS4 for Christmas, or maybe you’re in the market for a whole new look now that we’ve (finally) stepped over the threshold and arrived in 2020.
Either way, we’ve got some good news for you: Sony has a slew of free themes you can download and use for your PlayStation 4 console that let you show your tastes to anyone that happens to see your Home Screen.
Save your money for all the games you want to buy on PSN, and nab a selection of themes for your console absolutely for free instead.
They won’t always be available, so if you see one you like, download it so you don’t miss out.
Better still, there’s plenty to choose from and a quick check of the UK PSN store shows there’s over 300 free themes to choose from.
However, we’re not going to take you through all 300, we’ll leave that to you.
But to get you started, here’s 10 we do think are well worth adorning your PS4 home screen, starting with a very naughty goose.
1. Untitled Goose Theme
As of December, you can get a lovely gift on your PlayStation 4 console featuring a horrible goose.
The amazing theme captures the feeling of the game adeptly – it features the eponymous Goose sitting on top of a pile of stolen items, as birds chirp in the background.
To nab this free theme, you simply need to download it to your console from the PlayStation Store – you can do that by navigating to it on your console, or by clicking here .
2. Oddworld: New’n’Tasty Theme
“Hello. Follow Me. Wait!” you may say to yourself as you download this theme that pays homage to the Oddworld games that became cult hits on the PlayStation back in the PS1 days.
The series is still going strong, too, with a remake of the original games in the shape of ‘New’n’Tasty’ making waves when it launched back in 2013.
3. Tetris Effect Metamorphosis Dynamic Theme
Fancy a slight, disorientating trip every time you turn your console on? Well then we’ve got some good news for you – the Tetris Effect Metamorphosis theme is for you.
The game – which features a shapeshifting geometric whale – has all the zen of the game distilled into one reactive theme.
You can download it here .
4. Happy Holidays 2020 Theme
PlayStation 4 users in Europe and North America received an email in 2020 that contained a code which will unlock a dynamic ‘Happy Holidays Theme 2020’ when entered into the PlayStation Store.
Once you’ve received a code in your emails, you simply need to enter the string of numbers and letters in the ‘Redeem Code’ section of the PlayStation Store.
The dynamic theme contains some nice, relaxed Christmas music and some pretty lovely visuals to boot. Even if you’re late to finding the code in your inbox (check your Spam folder!), you should download this ready for Christmas 2020.
If we live to see Christmas 2020, that is.
5. Ghost of Tsushima Theme
The new samurai game from Sucker Punch Productions – who you might recall as the famed developer behind the likes of the inFAMOUS and Sly Cooper series – are planning to get fans excited by offering a theme based on their upcoming game.
Simply enter one of the codes below in the ‘Redeem Code’ field on PSN to nab this theme for yourself.

6. Sekiro Shadows Die Twice Theme
In late December , Sony started sending out yet another free gift for players – and this one celebrates a title that was recognised as Games of the Year at The Game Awards 2020.
To nab this free theme, you simply need to download it to your console from the PlayStation Store – you can do that by navigating to it on your console, or by clicking here.
Enter your date of birth, fill out the fields that are required, and if your browser is synced up to your console, you’ll be able to download the theme from the site.
7. Disgaea 4 Complete+ Prinny Hot Potato Theme
If you don’t know what a Prinny is, we’re going to remedy that immediately. The lil’ creatures originate from the Disgaea series, and are unquestionably some of the best critters in gaming.
“A prinny is a small, usually blue, pouch-wearing penguin-like creature with disproportionately small bat wings, two peg legs where feet would normally be, and stitches at the top of the chest,” it’s official explanation states.
But, most importantly: “When thrown, they explode on impact.”
Celebrate this newly-acquired knowledge with the Disgaea 4 Complete+ Prinny Hot Potato Theme, which can be downloaded here .
8. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – Going Dark Launch Theme
The latest Call of Duty game has proved to be the most popular of recent years, and fans’ hunger for more updates on the title seems to never be sated.
If you’re patiently waiting for your next Modern Warfare update, why not download the nice, minimal ‘Going Dark’ theme for your PS4.
Get in the mood to jump into one of the HUD-less, night-vision heavy modes by downloading the theme here .
9. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled – The Race Is On Theme
Celebrate the return of everyone’s favourite orange marsupial (yes, really) with a dynamic theme that shows him trundling along a racetrack in the background as you flick between all the games you own before just booting up Netflix like you always do.
Support Crash and his Bandicoot friends by downloading this theme here .
10. Cyberpunk 2077 — “Mercenary of the Dark Future” Theme
Transform your PlayStation 4 home screen into a netrunner’s terminal with this official Cyberpunk 2077 theme, featuring backgrounds, icons, sounds and music inspired by CD PROJEKT RED’s open-world, action-adventure story of the dark future.
If you want to get in the mood for this year’s most anticipated title, you could do worse than downloading this theme right now.
