SEGA’s RubyEclipse has revealed that a Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 Dynamic Theme will soon be available on the PlayStation Store for PS3 owners thanks to a joint effort from SEGA and Sony. This theme is based on the game’s first stage Splash Hill Zone and features Sonic running and spin-dashing around, with an appearance from Dr. Eggman every now and then. Another cool feature is the ring sound effect we’ve all grown to know and love that will trigger when toggling around the XMB.

This Dynamic Theme will be a part of this coming Tuesday’s PlayStation Store update in the U.S. and will be released shortly after in Europe, so maybe Wednesday’s European PlayStation Store update, if we’re lucky? The theme will cost $2.99 in the U.S. and for a limited time will be available free to all PlayStation Plus members. No European prices were given.

If you missed the announcement, SEGA added exclusive Sonic 4 Avatar items to the Xbox Live Marketplace for Xbox 360 owners in December.

  1. That actually sounds pretty sick.
    But I have an xbox 360.

    I got it, i will record a video of this theme and play it back on my xbox.
    Its the perfect scheme.

  2. I think I might do, always wanted to have a dynamic theme and this one should look pretty good on a huge HDTV.

  3. I’m… Genuinely interested.

    I’ve always wanted a dynamic theme, but honestly, none of the ones on offer really interest me (Heavy Rain has one I think but seeing that every time I turned it on would be depressing).

    So yeah, I might actually get this. Depends how much it’ll cost me, really.

    I know how you feel. 🙁

    Hey Sega, how about some Sonic love for us PSP owners, huh?

  5. O man. I would love this, but I already got a theme that i wont ever change, if it came out earlier, i would’ve def got it

  6. I got the PS3 theme of Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing, but I don’t own it for PS3 just Wii and DS, but one day I’m going to get it for PS3. Well, I got Sonic 4 Episode 1 for the Wii, but that not stopping me getting the PS3 theme of it. Also, knowing me I might even download Sonic 4 for PS3 for the trophies, because I’m a big Sonic fan.
