So the extend of customization is you can pin things?

Lame video and lame customization. I know there has to be more. Also, is that the guy I should yell at for all the awful XB1 ideas you guys throw at the wall and see if it sticks? The faux hawk and glasses are a dead giveaway. You can tell XB1 UI was designed by hipsters and the avatars by metrosexuals.

I know this doesn't sound like it is coming from an XB fan but it is.

You can customize pins,color of tiles , your favorite channels on the "one guide" as well as favorite apps on one guide.its launch my dude simmer down hahah

You sound like a whole new level of butt hurt, there is nothing about the UI that has anything to do with sexuality or styles of fads.

I thought it was a nice, informative little video. Cute girl, to boot.

How much can you customize the PS4 dashboard? Oh yeah, that's right, you can't. I guess Sony couldn't find anyone who knew how to add customization options into the dashboard. /s

There was a lot in that video...

1) Customize pins
2) Resuming games exactly where you left off quickly
3) Digital downloads are available on every console you sign into as soon as they have downloaded enough to be playable
4) I can customize my gameplay and entertainment app experience by snapping other apps to the side
5) Changing the colors of pins
6) Kinect automatically recognizes who you are so when you talk it gives you your custom dashboard

Crap, I don't think you even watched the video.

Sorry, yes that sounded harsh. You have to excuse me, I was a huge fan of the blades and I thought they could have moved in that direction instead of the whole Win 8 metro UI. I still have a grudge against them making my purchased wallpapers worthless when they made the first big graphical change. Yeah, I guess a bit "butt hurt" over that..

The snap stuff, the channel guides all excellent stuff. I should have been more specific in my rant. I will see it all for myself this Friday.

And yes, you are right the PS4 customization as far as color and backgrounds is nothing. But I assume they will both evolve with the next FW updates.

I meant to say "extent" and not "extend" in my original post.

This is painful to watch, like a late-night infomercial...

almost as painful as you wasting my time on this comment.

Im sure it will allow you to do more than allow you to adjust pins.

0:26 - 0:37 hilariously embarrasing situation Microsoft has created for themselves there.

I like the way the UI loads, pretty cool looking.
But I'm not a fan of Windows 8 & Metro design.

It bite them hard,they had to do this & make things clear for their consumers or there will be a very large drop in sales,it's already being said that the PS4 has much more appeal consumer wise.

The UI looks cool.
