Just as they did last year, Sony has offered up a free theme and wallpaper design for the PS4 featuring everyone from Aloy to Ellie.
Female representation in video games has always been a problem in the industry, but if there’s one company that can be justifiably proud of their track record it’s Sony.
It would be impossible for Microsoft or Nintendo to try and match a line-up such as this, featuring so many lead characters from big name games, and that’s entirely to Sony’s credit.
The women are, from left to right: Freya from God Of War, Chloe and Nadine from Uncharted, Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn, Atoi from Teraway, Lady Maria from Bloodborne, Ellie from The Last Of Us, Kara from Detroit: Become Human, and Kat from Gravity Rush.
There’s also Sackgirl from LittleBigPlanet on the far right and we think the various fairy-like creatures are from Dreams, also by Media Molecule.
The image has been created by Guerrilla Games concept artist Choro Choi, who worked on Horizon Zero Dawn.
Although you can’t help but notice that a lot of the characters are drawn considerably younger than they actually appear in their respective games.
Chloe and Nadine are grown women in Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy, not the teenagers they appear here, and we almost didn’t recognise Freya at all.
Still, it’s a nice gesture and can be downloaded for free via the PlayStation Store or by using this link.
