Video Footage of PS4 Test Kit User Interface Leaks Out

"During the live stream of Zombie Studios' Blacklight Retribution, the developers showed off bits of PlayStation 4's user interface. The video was uploaded by YoutTube user MoejoeWins and he notes that this is apparently a very early build and is one of the first kits that came out. However this video lets us hear the sound affects and animation effects that we can expect in the retail version of the PS4." (PS4)

Not much to see really.

Yeah, plus if it's a very early build then it probably looks miles better now. But imo it looks pretty good so far.

I don't make games, but I can appreciate things like this.

How don't people understand that games don't just instantly become made the way they play them when they buy them.

There isn't like step 1, step2 , step 3 , profit.

There are so many things in between I don't even know about.

The comments on pre-alpha videos like this, are kind of weird. Not so much on this one but few other videos like this where people say it's "ugly" or whatever.

That is like looking at a houses foundation of only cement and maybe Main room flooring is in, and call it unfinished and ugly.

Well duh! It's not done yet.

Mansions don't always look beautiful. It takes time.

I always like ps interfaces and bios'

ps3s falloff wave in the xmb
ps2's clock and orbs, and ps1's visualizers, all inspired me to create what I do today.


I make shtuff :D cause I love these visualizations and the one in this test kit looks sweet. kinda like the ps3 one but the shading on the wave is solid like Fresnel as opposed to falloff from ps3 NEAT!

annnnnd..... DISAGREE :D

HammadTheBeast  +   410d ago
Yeah, it seems to be a pre-alpha of both the game and the UI as the dev says.
MWong  +   410d ago
Blacklight Retribution looks pretty damn good so far.
Blaze929  +   410d ago
Sony released a video trailer of the PS4's UI already and it looks similar to this - so I doubt the UI will change much. I may be alone here but really, do people really think that PS4 UI is amazing?

I'll constantly give Sony the benefit of the doubt when it comes to hardware but my gawd dat software!
aceitman  +   410d ago
don't these free to play games count as exclusive games toward sony too. warframes,superfun,planetside 2,Blacklight Retribution.. and dc uninverse.
Jeff257  +   410d ago
No because they can also be played on the PC. Or in the case of DCU it is also on the PS3 and PC. Anytime a game is on a console and PC it is multiplatform. It doesn't matter if it is F2P or a game you have to buy. The whole "Console Exclusive" thing is just stupid.
extermin8or  +   410d ago
Over the xbox-yeah seeing as titles like titanfall apparently count as exclusive to xbox, and various 360 games that were on pc always seemed to count when it suited.
LonDonE  +   409d ago
funny though titan fall is on pc,360 and xbox1, and yet the xbox fanboys call it a exclusive, strange that isn't it? for me they all are exclusives, because when it comes to consoles, you can only play these games on a Playstation platform, be it ps3 or ps4, and its the same with titan fall, you can only play it on xbox platforms so it is exclusive.

But how much you willing to bet titan fall will come to Playstation after 1 year? i would bet my life on it!! this is just a timed exclusive, which is sad for xbots, because allot of their systems exclusives end up on Playstation, but Playstation exclusives HARDLY EVER GO TO XBOX!

so you dont need ps plus to play free to play games online is this right?
awesomeperson  +   410d ago
Correct - free to play games are free to play, not requiring PS+.
avangerironman  +   410d ago
yes that's right sir :D
FamilyGuy  +   410d ago
Correct, but it's actually the developers choice. Not sure why they'd choose to restrict it to PS+ members though, not unless Sony charges them for making it that way or something. Doubt it though s yeah, Free-to-play = FREE-to-play on the PS4.
Spoons  +   410d ago
It crashed twice?
Buzz7S  +   410d ago
Because of the build. It isn't even at an alpha stage and if you ever got to experience the Battlefield 3 beta back in 2011, you'll know that alpha/beta previews tend to be buggy as shit!

Huh? It crashes once, the second time he closes the game before it loads properly.
pixelsword  +   410d ago
It's not a finished game, so yeah; unfinished games tend to do that.
bub16  +   410d ago
the GAME crashed not PS4, thats down to the game makers to fix, he even explains in the video lol

This is free?

awesome. I guess I will be playing this also lol
feraldrgn  +   410d ago
Although it's an early kit, if it ends up looking similar to that, I'll be pleased.

It's much tidier looking than the facebook type UI we've seen.

Would be even nicer if we could switch between those 2 themes, so it's something for everyone.
My_Outer_Heaven  +   410d ago
Kinda resembles the XMB which I thought became the dynamic menu.
Mookie  +   410d ago
Well its confirmed that ps4 has a web browser
as you see in the video thats all I wanted to know
worldstar videos on the big screen :D

Godmars290  +   410d ago
Doesn't this being the early build of a dev kit make it a less than worthless gauge for what the final UI will look like?
FullMetalTech  +   410d ago
It looks more or less like the foundation on what its based on though. So any other changes would be just cosmetic like more icons or themes,colors and so forth. I like it alot so far cuz it reminds me of an updated XMB. Im just hoping they dont clutter the background with ads.
cell989  +   410d ago
no space for ads in that interface
HugoDrax  +   410d ago
They will be there, I can't think of one device where ads don't exist hahaha! Advertising dollars at work.
edgeofsins  +   410d ago
Lets not pretend it is a fact unless it is so.
PS3 did not have advertisements for years and now that far more people will pay for subscription they will probably do away with them or only have small little messages for advertisements, and at least they advertise more relevant things.
JunioRS101  +   410d ago
Well. Didn't learn anything new or reliable.

Izzy408  +   410d ago
Didn't the PS4 crash a few times at E3 also? Hmmm...

Uhh i believe it was only assassins creed black flag that crashed due to it being a work in progress.... XB1 also had problems with battlefield 4
Izzy408  +   410d ago
Yeah, but the sound problem wasn't with the xbox, it was with the stage sound components. Big difference.

dontbhatin  +   410d ago
And you know that? and even so. who the hell cares? It is to be expected when a game Isnt complete. Thats why nobody had a issue about it. i thought journalists were going to pick it apart and make it out to be horrible, but it was as if it didnt even happen. Especially with ubisofts track record on a few of their franchises having performance issues on consoles.

But hey if you want to talk about how the XB1 is so much better cause one game froze on the ps4, then go spread the word, see how far that gets you.
Kryptix  +   410d ago
Everything at pre-alpha/beta stage will have technical issues. Weren't there technical issues also at Microsoft's E3 with Battlefield 4?


Wait till everything fully releases then you can talk about what's crashing and what's not.
Izzy408  +   410d ago
Wait til release? These are problems we should be talking about NOW, not after the product is released. I swear, people can't put their fanboyism to the side to think logically for one minute.
Kryptix  +   410d ago
That's why there's a beta phase to sort out the problems. Betas come out before full release and didn't you watch the video? "We will definitely crash, we're still optimizing it. It's nowhere near alpha, let alone beta." Either you have the attention span of a goldfish or you're an Xbot. lol Wait till the games release then you can talk so the developers can see what they forgot or need to fix.
dontbhatin  +   410d ago
He is thinking logically izzy. you are the one not putting your fanboyism aside making it out like the ps4 games are flawed like a game in progress should run flawlessly all the time.....

Looks terrible...maybe they need some ads to make this mess look better
XboxFun  +   410d ago
Wow, I hope that's not it. Too bland and uninspiring.

Says Xboxfun would u like a touch of Ads to help bury the games so it could be inspiring smh.

Naw, I would rather be buried in social goodness of what my friends are, was and is doing instead of the actual content I want to see.

Xsilvermist  +   409d ago
Actually thats located in the whats new feed its ur option to go their sonny boy but those ads are everywhere so argument is invalid once again an uneducated xbox gamer trying their best to put down Ps4 enjoy ur ads:).
