PlayStation 4 is still taking a while to launch. There is one more month of wait and then the wait of getting it on launch unless you have already pre-ordered it. We have gotten a new video which details the UI and Interface of PlayStation 4.
My dream just came through
looks more glassy and simple then xbone UI -i hate the win8 metro style-
same here i really hate everything about Windows 8 this look and feel much better look very simple and easy to use and very fast as well sony is hitting every single right note with ps4 EDIT: thanks to @Riderz1337 we can watch a better video than this one http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I can't watch a vid like that. My ears will bleed. Who the eff puts music or commentary like that on these things?
I can't watch a vid like that. My ears will bleed. Who the eff puts music or commentary like that on these things? It would be nice to get a proper inroduction vid on the UI though.
You dont like menus in menus in menus?
so true black! gamer fun fact for all!!!!... the ps4 will launch in a month sounds long ....unless u think about how it was revealed 8 months ago! to me it feels like yesterday, nov 15 is inches away from being in our livingrooms...great time to be a gamer! that goes for xbox fans too we will all enjoy next gen goodness, skipping thanksgiving altogether telling our wives to "shuddup and put my plate in the microwave, ill eat it after this match is over!"...spending time with loved ones is awsome...family too, just not on launch week.
Goto @16:20 Did you see how fast the got back to the menu? That was crazy fast!
Nope. Not to me. Xbox one UI is much classier and sleek.
this time around Sony has really listened to consumers, everything is better than it used to be. Greatness awaits!
It's funny how some people began pretending to love Metro after it was announced to be on the XBO.
@black0o I don't believe your opinion makes any difference, LOL! You don't like ANYTHING Microsoft. "Looks more glassy and simple." That's all you needed to post.
^^ waOooaW! do u own MS or MS products are exclusive just for YOU .. if i don't like a product i'm entitled to say so
I guess they cut out the part where it crashes http://www.fileswap.com/dl/... hehehehehehehhe jks lol rofl
What is simple about it? It looks like menus burried under other menus. Seems like the furthest thing from 'intuitive design' to me.
came through? so...you didn't had the chance to experience it? ot, looks nice and I love the way how the XMB is still pretty much there.
Everyone who watches this should do themselves the favor of muting the video -.-.
what's with all those stupid a** sub menus? Haven't seen such shi**y design since windows 98 sub menus that lead to more sub menus *smh*
When there is sub section, you can't leave it out. there always going to be files inside files
Clearly the early build we saw awhile back well at least its still snappy and i finally see the web browser in action and it fast yay and once again it has a dynamic background awesome because I'm getting tired of all that blue.
Looks great, Easy intuitive and Most importantly, responsive and fast.
Yeah, except the guy talking is fucking retard.
2 to 4 gigs of fast memory goes to this. Im serously disappointed in my opinion. Wow just wow.
Simple yet elegant and blazing fast.
Dammmmmmmmmm! that's what i call friendly UI
That commentator at the beginning was horrible and the music sucked lol. Here is the full one hour demo of the UI (It's French). http://www.youtube.com/watc... Sony - Flawless Victory
@Riderzz1337 you sir are awesome
Lol wow @Riderz thanks for that.
[email protected] A COMMENT *SHAKES RIDERZ HAND*
Thank you! That guys commentary was insufferable.
Do you got any other links? That video went private.
Man, the blue is just blah. I can't wait to slap my custom themes all over it.
I love my themes on my PS3. Fireplace theme FTW.
boom chicka wah wah..
I have Joel and Ellie from TLOU as my theme. I wonder if there is a Killzone, Infamous : Second Son or The Order : 1886 theme for the PS4. Static ones are alright but I like the ones that move or have multiple screens so every time you get on it's different.
kind of upset that they stuck to that bland type look. Looks alot like PS3, and that is what i honestly find to be a turn off.
What you find bland, I find simplistic. I don't want my UI to look amazing at the expense of being difficult to navigate. Also, what is so bland about it? You can change the background to your liking and this is still not even the final UI that will be in the retail version of the PS4.
throw the themes on it then :) Got the Green bay packers theme going right now. Go pack
I think thats the point-to leave it simple for customization. At least there no ads.
i guess when you're used to ads plastered all over your UI, anything looks "bland".
What UI has ads posted "all over it"? If you’re talking about Live, having one ad in one window, that makes no sound unless you highlight it is hardly "ads posted all over it".
@ JamieL It's a shame then that it's only going to get worse for the Xbox One dashboard then. You still can't really justify ads on a paid service. http://www.sticktwiddlers.c...
No YOU can't, I to be honest, could not care one little drop less. When you get a sec PM me I need to know a few things, since you can so very clearly see the future.
I don't really care what the UI looks like as long as it's effective as doing what it was designed to do. After all, how often and long are we really going to be looking at the UI when using the PS4?
Well that's as straight forward as it gets. Glad they kept the XMB. Updated obviously. I hope I can still setup folders for games. I have my games in PS1,PS2, action, racing, arcade, and so on folders. Super fast Interface also. Can't wait to put it through its paces during gameplay. See if the speed continues. It should, with the special chip inside JUST FOR background work. First time i've ever wanted to understand French and damn that music was annoying.
I like that they kept the XMB look and feel, and then enhanced it within each of the sub-menus. Looks really clean and fast, can't wait to use it!
LETS GO!! SO BEAUTIFUL
Right now I feel like a fat kid running on a treadmill while someone in front of me eats cake, right now all I can do is watch. November 15th is when I can get my grubby little hands on it.
Very fast and i love that they didn't sacrifice options for simplicity. SO glad to see the web browser works that well, gotta laugh at the people complaining how horrible the UI is, What is there to complain about?
I think that may be an old firmware version, judging by the number of things that he got a error for. I hope that once it hits retail and is all updated, they don't clutter the screen with adds and pictures of stuff. That's my only Xbox complaint. The entire screen is cluttered to the max with shit that was unrelated to games. I was glad when avatars came out so at least the screen had a little breathing room. Hopefully that will be fixed on XB1. If not, screw it. I can deal.
might have more to do with the fact that PSN isn't fully functioning for the Ps4
As long as i can keep my Asa akira theme i'm all good ;).
Hahaha. I don't think you'll be able to use existing PS3 themes as those were made specifically for PS3, but as long as Asa Akira has a dedicated fanbase of Sony gamers, you won't be waiting long for a PS4 theme to appear.
Not going to spoil it for myself, I think I'll just wait for Sony to post up an official vid.
Trust me, it was a very crap video.
seems like everything sony should have done with the ps3's ui. simple enough that it keeps its elegance, but has a ton of navigational purpose. i only wish that they were a little more adventurous with what they have going in relativity to color and icon choices. i think that both the xboner and the ps4's ui look great in terms of functionality, but a bit more color and pop on the ps4s side would have been fantastic. not necessarily to the obnoxious level of the 360s original "blades' system (for example), but just a little more vibrancy might have been nice. but again, glad to see that overall the UI keeps the look of maturity and elegance over any other look. would be happy with either next gen consoles ui. i mean even though windows 8 on pc is trash.
you can download, customize, and possibly create your own themes
I was just thinking that. I hope that you can customize the whole thing. Like Favorites/layers for quick access ( shortcuts ) and stuff like that.
"Simple and clean"- Hikaru Utada
Ahhhhhh i see what u did there.
i quite of like XBM style of PS3 (a little dispaoint that they don't use this on vita like psp) so i think sony did quite a good job to improve it in PS4 man, i wish they just release PS4 UI demo app so i can try it out on my own PS: oops, almost forget that, i want my dynamic theme have sound this time sony, make it happen and you will get all of my money
this guy narrating sounds like a complete moron. He makes us Americans look very bad.
The guy commentating.. ugh really do you need to swear every other word? I couldn't make it 30 seconds in and I want to see it. Oh well 30 days and I'll be experiencing it for myself.
wait wait... wtf. I dont know what the hell half the people are looking at.. i see people saying "beautiful". The one good thing i do see is that its snappy but thats to be expected. Its 2013 for goodness sakes. Hopefully we can them the bland blue screen out. But what the "F" we're they thinking with all those sub menu's. All of the modern operating systems have moved away from that. Its like a blast from the past which is why they really havent put it out like that. Something a little bit more dynamic and innovative to pair with that powerful hardware. Come on sony you can do better than this.... maybe this will evolve overtime. Not that big of a deal. Edit: Windows 8 is trash tho lmfaoooo. I can dig windows 7 tho.
I agree I'm actually disappointed with the UI. It looked so promising when they showed that vid that you can watch your friends game. But they ended up going with the same ole sub menu crap. The one thing I don't like about my PS3 is the UI. And Win8 can die. I'm sticking with Win 7 until I see what Win 9 has to offer.
You still can watch your friends game...
This isn't really appealing at all. It looks very bare bones, and aesthetically, very bland. I'm all for minimalistic approaches in menus/UI's, but I also want something pleasing to look at it. This reminded me of like a debug mode for developers.
I never understood peoples need to see something pretty on a UI. I mena i understadn the want to see "NEW" btu how often are you using the UI or showing it off or looking at it as some form of happiness while playign the system? Real question BTW. I don't get peoples problems with either UI. It's just a UI
This. I'm using the console to play games. I don't care about the aesthetic value of the console itself and its UI as long as both are effective at what they are designed to do. Besides, do anyone really think there won't customization options for this?
This guy hasn't heard of themes or customization, it appears.
