Just a quick (and maybe already asked) question.


Has Sony addressed the matter of font colour on the PS3?

I find it quite frustrating and limiting that I can't change the font colour from white.

I really enjoy working with black and white images mostly my own images, but find it so ristricting knowing that the fonts will be almost unseen and hard to read in such a theme. I dont like using coloured bars as it ditracts from the background in many cases.


Any tips???

It'll probably never be customizable. I can see the reason being that as the font color is now it can be read on both light and dark backgrounds.


If you were able to choose font color yourself you could make a theme which hides all menu text and makes navigation pretty much impossible.

I agree that it might never be costumizable... that's the sad truth. But when you change the theme color on the PSP, it changes the font color. (It gives the font a little shade of the color theme you choose, more visable with a background image.) I don't know if the same applies with the PS3 since I harldly notice. (It's hardly noticable on the PSP.) But if so, that tiny shade difference is the most you can get. Surprised

@Obsidian Nara

If your using the default icons,they are slightly transparent,so they don't actually change color.(PS3)
