PlayStation Marks International Women’s Day 2019 With Gorgeous New PS4 Theme
Sony PlayStation has marked this year's International Women's Day by releasing a new, free desktop theme that celebrates some of its most prominent female gaming characters.
As reported by PlayStation-focused site Push Square, the theme (available here!) is created by Guerrilla Games concept artist Choro Choi, and - as you can see from the picture above - features a wealth of recognisable characters.
There's Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn, Kat from Gravity Rush, Freya from God of War, Ellie from The Last of Us, Atoi from Tearaway, Lady Maria from Bloodborne (brilliant), and more. These are PlayStation-exclusive characters, of course - you'll have to Photoshop in your own Lara Crofts, 2Bs and Cortanas.
You can see the theme installed, via a YouTube video uploaded by user RenkaWong, below.
Sony has also published a video looking at some of the talents women behind so many of your favourite games. Which is even cooler than the theme, to be honest. The more visibility of diversity our industry benefits from, the better it is for everyone involved (and the greater that diversity can become).
