With PSN update 3.0, the reason why I can barely log on for two days so far, you get a few new things, which people are already arguing about for various reasons, but the thing that really irked me was the sparkling dust/sparkles/glowing dots/fireflies/stars – whatever the hell you want to call them. I may be in touch with my feminine side, but I’m not a girl.
To get rid of them, go to your theme settings and switch to “classic”. You can then tweak your font and other things if you wish to have your ps3 theme looking exactly as it did before.
Apart from the new logo.
