Yeah, after just listening to THIS at the 24:20 mark, you can hear an interview with seth killian.

He says that there are character themes that you unlock for the more that you use a certain character.

 

So this one is the Jak and Daxter theme which is orange, features J&D on the main screen, and flying cars going across the screen, and he also said that for the Nathan Drake one, the background is of a sandstorm (like the Uncharted 3 main menu).

 

So it's all customizable depending on your tastes which is nice to hear. So if you don't like orange, you don't have to have orange.

haha, sorry, I only ever played Jak and Daxter 1. And that was quite some time ago.

I really should pick up the HD collection. So then I would be able to know this kind of stuff.

Orange is my favorite color, so I'm cool with it. Can't wait to see the rest of the character's menu themes, although, I wish they had more design-oriented and intricate menus, it looks too simple. This is coming from a graphic designer.

I like the menu. The font is slick, the interface is minimal and also slick. No complaints if you ask me. The different character theme thing is awesome too.

Maybe it's like in Mario Party, where the main menu theme was based on the last victor. It would also be cool if it was like the XMB, changing every month or so.

I think in 'Customize' you choose which character to appear on the main menu (in this case it's Jak), the theme (in this case it's Radec's theme), and the color (in this case it's orange).

I assume you'll get to customize your unlockables too (Intros, Outros, Minions, Belts, and others).

the theme is Jak... those are hellcat cruisers broskie.
