Sony has taken a step towards its users who support the Black Lives Matter movement against color discrimination racism. Sony has released a static theme that all PS4 owners adopting the movement will use for free.
Black Lives Matter movement themed by Sony
Sony has provided a new way for PS4 consoles users to support the Black Lives Matter movement. The company served a static theme with the same name as the move on PlayStation Store. When users activate the theme, they will encounter a black punch rising up into the air marked by the yellow lines associated with the movement at the bottom right of the PS4’s user interface. The theme, which uses a black color as the background, has the #BLM tag at the top of the user interface.
In the last few months, many companies have undertaken similar studies to show their support for the protests. In June, Activision updated the opening screen of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to support the movement. Destiny 2 developer Bungie did not neglect to include many movement-related items in his game. In addition, big companies such as Microsoft, EA, Blizzard and Bethesda had expressed their attitudes on the subject without hesitation.
The events started after a black citizen named George Floyd was killed by the police using disproportionate force on May 25, 2020 in Minneapolis, USA and soon spread to the whole country. The events soon received support from almost all of the world.
