PS4 day one update can be downloaded in the background, no custom wallpaper for launch

Woo Twitter! President of Worldwide Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment, Shuhei Yoshida or @yosp on Twitter has confirmed that the day one update that the Playstation 4 requires can be downloaded in the background

That being said, the update is 300mb isn't too taxing on most broadband connections. 

In another tweet, he also confirmed that custom backgrounds will not be available on the system, wether this is just at launch or throughout the console's lifetime is unsure, but Yoshida did mention that users will be able to import their Facebook profile picture to use as their profile picture on the next generation console.

I would assume themes will be available at some point. Entirely depends on how often you're likely to spend at the X-Bar. I get the impression it'll be so easy to hop between apps that you won't close a game, to access the X-Bar, to open the PSN store. You'll literally hop from one to the other.
