A video of how the ps3 dashboard will look and how the guide menu will work.
I saw it on ign and it looked boring and plain. Very last gen in my opinion.
Agreed. It looks very boring.
IGN said that the 360 vision camera was far more cool than the PS3's interface in their episode.
Boring as hell actually. PSP rippoff, it seems as if they did more rushjobs then the console itself alone.
Man it's just a PSP with a larger case around it
it makes more sence why it`s lookin more like a psp interface becuause we know the psp would act like a remote or something else with it to control the console
It's getting a more and more expensive project by the minute
For what use actually? See the rear mirror in GT on the PSP? For real. The dashboard and guide menu have a originality and innovativity of 0,0. Just plain dull
PS3 for 600 dollars, PSP for 250 dollars, total 850 dollars for a PSP rippoff system. No extra controllers, no games bought yet.
The PSP will act as a remote controller :D You can control your PS3 from anywhere in the world with it's wi-fi feature. So you can pretty much play any ps3 game when you're not at home. Of course you won't see anything. You'll have a nice display of your scores on the psp but nothing else.
Looks very plain and boring. Nothing new!
Problem that I can see happening with that menu ingame, is that when you bring it up against a white background, you won't beable to see what is going on, because the menu blends in with the game graphics (watch the video and see if you can see anything in that white bloch in the middle!
At least with the 360 dashboard it bring in a slide that overlaps the game, therefore easy viewing each time.
MS 360 dashboard might not be the easiest thing to navigate, but it sure is pretty, and all that swoooshing.....I just love it!
Lastly, Sony rip MS again!! "Press the little PS icon to bring up the menu" fockers!
thats all i'm gonna say!!!
The 360 dashboard is alot and alot better than this bullsshhiiitt.
yea and i`ll be playing devil may cry not the dashboard
go to youtube and u can see a different interface there, and t looks better so search there and u will see.
We are not talking about games, we are talking about the PS3 dashboard how crap it looks.
And ive got a psp and it looks the same as what weve seen in the video.
yeah man here is the link to the retailversion UI of the PS3:
Source: E3 2006.
I like the smoke background in that, and it does look better with actual content.
That earlier video, they had no background, and no content to show. Oh, and they were boring. So that sucked.
The video you posted has sold me. I did not see the swirly silver graphic or the black background option in the IGN video. These make all the difference!!
Sony needs to go back to drawing board. That dash looks like french fried a$$.
That vid was cluttered. So much on the screen. Where’s the simplicity?
no problem and by the way i love this interface too. look at it, its very ituitiv, and u've got a good overview. and that's what it's meant to be. and, its nice to look at.
I'll be honest, I still like the Live interface better. I'm not getting a community feel from that setup. And the internet browsing feature freaks me out, what with viruses, cookies, pop ups....Sony is trying to do too much with a system I would want as a game console.
Yes, we at fony have managed to copy the industry leaders in the attempt to create a good gri---- console. We stole the GUIDE button from XBOX, we stole tilt sensing from NINTENDO, and we stole the interface from OURSELVES. Yes, the POSP interface looked so good that we had to make it teh entire interface for our POS3. Buy my GRI- Console!!!!!!!
I like the way it's setup, but it seems so small, and with the problems with text in some games lately I hope it works out.
I play on a monitor, so I won't have a problem, but on a huge HDTV I wonder if it will work out.
the simple things are easy to use fast and nice..well it`s true for a system like ps3 we hope to see innovative never been seen dashboards but still, like i said it works with the psp interface in communication .so much change is not needed.
It's like a bad copy of the PSP guide, Sony did it again. It's not just a 360 copy, it's a dowgraded one. That's what they get for copying the 360 controller.
Hum... is it just me or when I fire up my 360 and get the wonderful LIVE Dashboard.... it looks more like a $600 console than this boring looking so called next gen background.
Sorry but I am spoiled... the 360 is beautiful even without a game on with plenty of info right at your fingertips... I am blown away at how easy Sony makes it for us to rip them.... have fun with your PS3 dashboard.. so much to see and do lol
UIs are meant to be functional not to look good.
If the PS3 UI is like the PSP which it looks like it is then we'll be able to change backgrounds and other stuff.
Get a damn life. A game console is for playing games on not to look at pretty UIs all day.
You got it in one xbox360 fanboys are spoiled brats. its gimme gimme gimme. you're like "its gotta look good cos im shallow and i wont touch anything that is simple to use but looks like crap."
You lot give the xbox360 a bad reputation. I mean what sane person would actually wanna login to Live and play with u guys online. Not me thats for sure.
Btw they cant rip off something that they created. Sony owns PSP so they are allowed to use anything from PSP that they want. If it works why change it?
now that's innovative! No wait it's not. If rumble works why change it? Where did sony get the guide button idea? right...
So let me just get this straight... First Sony decides to delay their console for an entire year so that they can include a useless Blue Ray drive, eventhough every other component was not only finalized but practically ready to go in relatively short order. Then after having an entire year more than Microsoft come out with this dogs breakfast.
I just can't believe how incredibly bad it is compared to the 360's and if this is any indication as to how competent they are at creating an online component that will compete with Xbox Live - then Sony is in big, big trouble and it had better be free, just like garbage is free.
It's time to face the music Sony and it is becomming more and more obvious that the best day the 360 will ever have is the day the PS3 actually launches because Sony fans will no longer be able to rely on the past and Sony's arrogant "buy-in" marketing strategy. Microsoft was right when they said that: "the proof will be in the pudding".
360 fanboy are stupid thats a dev kit interface not the final Ps3 you guyz are dumbloser
go play your xbot 1.5
click the link:
That clip makes the PS3 UI look far, far better than the IGN crap...
The only problem is that everything there is also on XBL...as long as Sony keeps the entire service free and maintains good servers, that will be great. I am waiting to se it actually happen, but anything that forces competition (ie. XBL) to compete with FREE is a good thing long term...
C'mon Sony, delvier a knockout free online servie so that ALL next-gen has to adopt a free model...
"but still, like i said it works with the psp interface in communication .so much change is not needed."
And you call yourself a "next-Gen" gamer or even this copycat "menusystem from a failing product."
Isn't this suppose to be innovative? like New? different? hmmmm can you say booooooooooring..
