Not gonna lie, if they offer the theme as a pre-order incentive for digital 2.8 in other regions as well, I'm such a fanboy that I might pre-order the game again through PSN just for the goddamn theme. I hate how you can only get most themes nowadays by buying games digitally. But for KH, I'd be tempted to make an exception.

Unfortunately the theme doesn't contain any KH music, it's just what we've seen in the previews. A bit of a disappointment.

That is quite disappointing. Does make me reconsider, but still. The KH themes you get from 1.5 and 2.5 on PS3 are great and there aren't any for PS4 at all. Although, now that they're porting the collections over, maybe they'll rework the themes for PS4? That'd be sweet, and make me less likely to spend an additional $60 just to get a fracking PS4 theme.

The lack of any music is definitely a turn off for me. I absolutely hate PS4 themes that have no sound. I like a little music and sound on my menus instead of dead silence.

I want this, I don't care if it doesn't have any music. I can get myself Spotify or something and activate a KH Theme. I want this.

Welp, looks like other regions are getting the theme as well. But, after thinking on it a bit, I'm not gonna go for it. Despite it being a KH theme, it's a bit too boring for my tastes. No music and it's just some symbols on a plain-ish background. If it were the 2.8 boxart or had some music, then I'd be more tempted, but otherwise, I'll pass. Hopefully there's a theme pre-order bonus for 1.5+2.5 that looks way cooler.

I'm desperate for a KH PS4 theme, but this one is certainly a bit disappointing. I'm glad there is something out there for sure, and even as someone who loves buying games digitally, I think I'll have to hold off on my physical preorder for the time being. I love the Firewatch theme that I'm running now, and nothing out there quite comes close to how great that theme truly is. Crossing my fingers we get a rad theme when the Remix collection drops.
