    Greetings fellow Consolers,

    I was scrolling through the Wallpaper offerings on the XBL and PSN the other day an a couple of things occurred to me;

    • Console Wallpapers are getting expensive these days
    • There is no one Wallpaper that "suits me"

    Then a voice in my head (Hmmm, I should see someone about that ... I get quite a few voices in my head :eek:) said "Hey! Wouldn't it rock hard if we had a TOG based wallpaper for the PS3 and XBOX?

    I said to the voice; "You know your right, that would rock hard ... but we have a problem ... I am not the best at doing graphics." :(

    Then the voice said; "Yeah but if you challenge the Console dudes on TOG to come up with their version of a TOG console wallpaper we may end up with many hard rocking versions of a TOG console wallpaper to chose from!"

    I responded to the vice; "Great idea! I will post up the request as soon as I get on my PC!"

    The voice than said; "Excellent ... now go fix us a Scotch and dry!"

    So I did! :D




    ... Oh I almost forgot ...

    Anyone up for the challenge of making up some TOG Console Wallpapers for the XBOX and PS3? :confused:;):D

    I'll take that challenge.

    I've long had it in mind to create a TOG PS3 theme. (complete with icons...)
    And now that we have a "new" defacto TOGcc logo......:D

    ...I'll add it to the list of TTD

    Exellent post....I was wondering what the used area of the picture was, and i was much to lazy to experiment for hours attempting to find the perfect size myself lol, so that is a great Youtube post. Thanks

    Y'know what'd rock even harder than a TOG wallpaper?
    [​IMG]

    TOG PS3 Theme
    (with 7 different wallpapers - 4005Kb)
    edit: the preview above doesn't look like the icons line up properly, but they do on my 1080p display :)
    Below are the 7 wallpapers I used/designed, they will display at random when the PS3 boots:
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I can't (and won't) take credit for the backgrounds used in images 2,3,5 and 6, nor the two images that went together to make wallpaper 4. I found them on the 'net and flipped/stretched/cropped them to suit, before adding the TOG logos and text.
    FWIW, designs 3 and 7 are my favourites.

    Unfortunately, can's speak for XBoxers, by virtue of the fact I don't have one. But PS3 consolers, please feel free to download and make comment.

    Hmm, could be my defective brain, but I'm not getting the wallpaper and half the icons are blank... Is there something else I need to do to install this beyond hitting 'install theme'?

    ---
    Edit: Turns out it was my brain.

    Nothing to see here.

    Move along.

    Beauty job there Cadder! Nice work putting the CC website on there too, my local friends think I'm supercool now. :cool:

    BTW, for those of you who don't know how to get this on your machine, point your PS3 browser to this thread and download Cadder's theme file by pressing triangle and then select file - save target. Then select it from your theme settings and you're good to go! :D
