The Sony PS3 is a consumer video game device that is capable of having alternate themes installed onto it to change its look and feel. If your PS3 does not have access to the PlayStation Network, you can download the PS3 themes from many different websites and save the theme files to a USB stick. Once on the USB stick, the PS3 themes can be installed directly from the flash drive.
