Decorate Your Console Dashboard With Resonance Of Fate

By Spencer . February 23, 2010 . 10:20am

Sega released custom Resonance of Fate themes for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, one of which is 100% Leanne.


Let’s look at the Xbox 360 dashboard first. Get this for 250 Microsoft Points ($3.13) to visit various Resonance of Fate locations while cycling through menus.

There are two themes available for PlayStation 3. Type A cycles through characters like Subject #20 and Vashyron. Type B is all about Reanbelle, better known as Leanne in North America. Sega just loves Leanne, she made a cameo in Phantasy Star Portable 2 and gave fans virtual chocolate for Valentine’s Day. Now you can return the favor by purchasing her PS3 theme (or the character montage) for 300 yen ($3.30).

    I want to buy the PS3 one.. but i dunt want to randomly buy it when i dunno japanese words

    • nyobzoo

      it’s actually pretty easy to navigate through the Japanese PSN store, new releases are always on the big column on the right

      • pacanug

        Yeah, but you would need either a Japanese credit card or buy a prepaid Japanese PSN card.

        I don’t see why Sega wouldn’t release these in other regions to coincide with the games launch.

    I’ve been eyeing on the Reanbell theme debating if I should buy it, so it’s only ONE wallpaper w/ the piggies? 300 yen seems a little steep and I only have 400 yen in my acct, should’ve saved 800 yen for the Misato news broadcast thing… and I don’t feel like getting a new card at the moment. The light background always makes the XMB hard to read too..

    The Resonance of Fate 360 premium theme is okay, I like characters better than locales, usually I sample videos on youtube first to decide to buy or not. I think I’ll wait for the Espgaluda one on Jpn Live.

  • Vino (Tim N)

    Are these dynamic themes? I’m interested, but I spent quite a bit of money buying a Japanese PSN card off the internet for the Demon’s Souls dynamic theme. (I don’t regret it at all) Don’t want to go through all the trouble again so soon.

    • Aoshi00

      That’s the thing, I don’t think it’s dynamic, just seems like a static wallpaper that usually go for 100 or 200 yen (and they are many good WP/themes that are free). I mean the 360 premium theme at least has several and other background behind your friends’ avatars

      I actually want the Heavy Rain dynamic one but it’s just raining in a back alley…

      I like the piggy shirt on Reanbell, she was wearing it during Valentine’s Day :)

      • thebanditking

        I must agree Reanbell in the piggy shirt is very nice.

      • MisterNiwa

        I just love the Heavy Rain Dynamic Theme~ ^D
        Its really awesome looking, unlike others you can clearly read the text.

        • Aoshi00

          I would get that at your recommendation. I’m actually a big rain guy, people say I should live in London :) I’ve been longing for a rain screensaver but I don’t think I’ve ever come across any. can’t wait for the game…

          • MisterNiwa

            I would gladly share my account with you, but its too valueable for giving it away. ;_;

          • Aoshi00

            thanks man, but I just chk’ed this out on Youtube, no sound for the raindrop? WTH?!


            I want to listen to the rain if I’m paying $3 :(…

          • MisterNiwa

            Oh well, i didnt knew that Dynamic Theme couldve sounds like that, lol.

            Do you own Assassins Creed II or Borderlands? :I

          • Aoshi00

            I didn’t know, I just assume they have some background noise. Chk out what this guy did, he added the sound of rain himself! Now that’s more like it.. good thing I do some research on these things..


            Haven’t gotten Borderlands yet, almost done w/ AC2, why?

          • MisterNiwa

            Oh well, i made this PSN Account where i bought the DLC for Borderlands and Assassins Creed 2, and with the spare money i bought the Heavy Rain Dynamic Theme.. :I

            Thats the one account ive been talking about.

            Im struggling if i mind give it to you. 8D

          • Aoshi00

            Oh, that’s what you meant.. it’s okay man, don’t worry about it, and I got AC2 on 360 actually. But really thanks for the thought! You should check out the Borderlands parody videos later w/ claptrap the director cursing behind the scenes, hilarious (he was like Christian Bale going nuts, “freaking amateurs”), right now they’re on Jpn Live, I guess they would be available later on PSN.

          • MisterNiwa

            U know what i ask myself, after beating the game, there is this ultra suspicious cutscene where an alien ninja virus takes over claptrap, but i havent seen that claptrap yet. :(

            Oh yeah.. Christian Bale, he sure is a great actor, but i dont know much of his true personality, from what i herd he is an real asshole, is that right?

            .. Wait, didnt this all started with End of Eternity? How did we end up here!?

        • thebanditking

          Eveyone knows that you can adjust the background image brightness for the PS3 themes right? Really helps if a background makes the text hard to read.

          • MisterNiwa

            Well.. Im not everyone.. Hahaha..ha… ha…


          • Aoshi00

            I actually didn’t know about it either, but the disclaimer of the Reanbell theme mentioned adjusting brightness, I guess this picture would make things hard to read.

    • Eddie

      where’d ya buy that!!! ^_^

  • thebanditking

    Hopefully we get these over here (seems like a no brainer), as I don’t feel like buying a JP PSN card. Especially with how weak the US dollar is to the Yen right now. Im going to wait this out as the last time I jumped the gun, and bought a JP PSN card for Crystal Defenders and two days later it showed up on the US store.

    Also I hope the other PS3 theme does not have sound effects. As personally I prefer the standard click sounds and given all the guns I would hate it if everytime you move to a new icon if a gunshot sound played (Lost Planet has a PS3 theme like that very annoying!)

    • malek86

      Your bitter tears are my favorite food.

      (eg. with the weak dollar, I’m able to buy stuff for much lower than here in Europe)

      • thebanditking

        I understand your position but a quick look at my local importer shows me that a $30.00 JP PSN card would cost almost $50. Which is a bit too much for my tastes. Though you dont need to tell me about the Euro, I know its rough.

    • Aoshi00

      Yeah, those sound effects always kill the themes for me, like SFIV’s punching, or Ratchet’s high pitched noise, the Lost Planet gunshots were annoying (maybe Reanbell’s pigs would oink?), but I think the $3 Dynamic Heavy Rain theme has no sound for the rain, doesn’t that defeat the whole point of a rain theme?

      Yeah, a 5000yen card goes for $75 now, crazy.. I’m 400 yen short from renting the Misato news thing for a month, I want to listen to her talk about the Toyota fiasco and get the trophies lol..

      I had it worse last time I bought the Mushihime-sama Black Label DLC on the Jpn marketplace w/o realizing it was also available on US Live, so 1200 pt was like $20, I could’ve gotten it for ~$10 w/ my US points… we really need to be extra careful and only get it on Jpn server only when it’s absolutely necessary, so I’m also waiting to see the Reanbell theme would turn up here later, for maybe like $2.
