Neat.
Lwhit6  +   254d ago
Trophies are grouped in terms of rarity! Now that's neat!

@macethedon check out gameovergreggys's twitter he's throwing out useful information left and right.

Here's what he said: PSN trophy rarity goes: Common, Rare, Very Rare and Ultra Rare

Where'd you see that?
RedHawk02  +   254d ago
What exactly do you mean by that?? I'd appreciate if you comment it here because I don't have a twitter.
kidhero99  +   253d ago
psnprofiles type of shit and other similar sites been doing it longer though.
Blaze929  +   254d ago
most of those points have nothing to do with the UI though. I don't get it.

"The PS4 is shaped like a parallelogram." "You can watch Netflix without a PlayStation Plus subscription. "

wut?
RedHawk02  +   254d ago
Yeah, it shouldn't have the "Interface" in the title but the author of it put that as the title so it was kept like that.

"Okay, so this isn't a fun fact
about the UI, and really, we already knew this
would be the case, but it's pretty damn cool that
Sony isn't locking this stuff behind a paywall. On
Xbox One, just like on the 360, you'll need Xbox
Live Gold to use Netflix and other media
services."

He literally explained that it was just cool so he felt like mentioning it -_- .

LOL but Blaze why mention that when the editor himself said that the last 3 things weren't about the UI?

more things to complain about... -__-

I believe Kotaku forgot just ONE more cool fact about the PS4's Interface.

10)The UI is CUSTOMISABLE
DivineAssault  +   254d ago
good to know everyone seems happy with it so far.. I refuse to watch video of the UI cuz im going to experience all that right here @ home on my tv.. This type of experience only comes around every 6+ yrs & i plan to have it at home as much as i wanna see it in action.. Damn it, 4 days is going to feel so damn long
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   254d ago
the two friends list thing is an absolute killer. id never want to put my real information out there to online friends, but the fact that i could treat my true friends list as if it were something of a social network is phenomenal.
tethered  +   254d ago
That is a great feature!
fpshooter2  +   254d ago
I love the multitasking features. Only double tap the ps button to pull up recently veiwed apps..now thats clean and simple
GTgamer  +   254d ago
Can we do that with Netflix because im going to be one happy camper finish a episode of my tavorite show then boom hop back into KZSF multiplayer now thats Next gen
Lwhit6  +   254d ago
Why wouldn't you be able to? :D
GTgamer  +   254d ago
Idk :D
RedHawk02  +   254d ago
I know. That's so amazing. It's really convenient for the average person.
osamede1  +   254d ago
Two groups of friends is my fav out of that list. I can't describe how annoying it was trying to figure out who is who on xblive after ppl change names 283848383883times a day. Especially after taking a break and retuning after a few months
cyclindk  +   254d ago
Well he is right about it being a parallelogram.

IDK wtf the Xbox One is... some sorta effing hexapod son-bidge..

Parallelogram FTW!

And on a side note, I heard Penello describe the Xbox One's game recording function as "games DVR," so unless the recording process is fundamentally different, or there is some licensing issue I don't understand why they didn't work this into the TV functionality, allow it to record your television shows?

I, as someone who neither watches television, or found enough other reason to be seriously interested in the Xbox One as a purchase WOULD find this attribute alluring... maybe they will update it somehow.

I really want to see how exactly the video editing feature will work. The XBox One Video editing was detailed in a video, and I really hope the PS4 has similar features. Not just trim and upload.
cyclindk  +   254d ago
Agree there, haven't seen much on the PS4 camera functions (system-based or game-wise), video sharing/editing. They seem more focused on Vita remote play compatibility and the UI in general.
Fiestabrian  +   254d ago
First good read in a while
KwietStorm  +   254d ago
All I want to know is if that shot you see for like a second in the video gamespot posted months ago is real. The one with the guy in his garage.. It looked like he had a custom group subset in his friends list. With the 2000 friend limit, I can finally have my clans from different games all on my list without worrying about space. Would be brilliant.
