The Best Thing About The New Vita Themes Is The Menu Music

For more than two-and-a-half years we've been dealing with the same PlayStation Vita menu music. The last thing I wanted from the PlayStation TV was that same damn piece playing on my television set. Thanks to the recently released Vita themes, I don't have to hear it anymore.

It seems like such a small thing, but when you play a system regularly over the course of a couple years, the tune that plays every time you're on the menu becomes part of the experience. Switching to one of the three new free themes — Four Seasons, Crystal or Stitching — is a transformative experience. The icons are different. The music is different. It feels new, certainly less tired.

If you've got an old Vita or a new PlayStation TV, hit up the PlayStation Store and snag all three of these. Now if they could just change the Store music...


    Or just turn the music off. Why would you want music in your system UI anyway?

    One of the first things I did was turn off the menu music. Besides, I don't spend nearly enough time on the menu for music to be meaningful. It's like those games with random encounters that are too short for the music to hit its stride so you just hear the same first few bars over and over again.

    Ugh, it's like playing Gran Turismo..... Why the crap would you want annoying japanese orchestral menu music for your main menu?

    First thing I do with gaming systems is disable menu music and menu clicks.

    If only they'd update the UI so it doesn't look so childish!
    I'd love a sleek PS4-style home screen!
