If you’re not into the beta test of PS4 firmware udate 3.00 “Kenshin,” but you want to check it out, more and more of its elements are starting to be leaked online in form of screenshots and videos.
Looking good! But I want more features, folders, a stronger media player with extended functionality (able to read more formats plus subs). Custom themes made like on the ps3.
We really need the ability to make our own themes like PS3 because these overpriced trash themes are ridiculous. Also when Sony adds new permanent icons to the somewhat clunky interface they lack custom icons like the older icons themes customized and they look completely out of place with the theme.
That stuff wasn't added to PS3 till like year 4 or 5 we'll get it just not yet
While themes can be a nice feature it should not detract from what is primary the most important part of a gaming machine and that is games. Lets be honest here how long do you look at a theme compared to playing games?
cloud backup while consoel is on and not just in sleep mode would be a good start. im in the dash beta and nothing is new thats noticable and nothing that makes me think"thanks i wanted that"
I would love to know when my friends sign in rather than when they join a party. Some people get so bad with party jumping I have to turn off the notification. It's annoying. I'd love to see more custom folders too. The PS4 is amazing already but the software could be a bit better. I understand though, these things take time. I wish they expanded more on the Google search bar from PS3 and let Google help design software for the PS4, could you imagine approved Android apps on PS4? Chrome would be nice too! Regardless, any feature from here on out is excellent because its an add on to an already amazing consoleconsole and its free, gotta love technology!
I totally agree the ps4 interface is already crowded with games, and apps. I do miss the custom themes. Hopefully one day we will get what we asked for the ps4.
yeah definitely, custom themes and folders should be next.
I want the option to mix and match custom bullet logos and wallpaper backgrounds on the main screen like ps3 had.
Community's are really great but it only shows you 80 to 90 and theres no search bar.
The feature does need some flashing out, but it has potential, especially for games with poor community features (Destiny, I'm looking at you).
can we get an option to "delete all" in the notifications menu?
Out of all the things people asked for. This is what we all truly need. Go email them buddy, do it for all of us.
Mark all as read is an option.
Mark all as read...
Notifications cannot be deleted... (the "Notifications" with an "I" next to it) although "NEW" ones can, with the "mark all as read" function, but alas it is nowhere to be found in the "notifications" section.
Delete all uploads is what I need...
the ability to watch my friends play will help me better help my friends online when their lost in games so that's the best feature to me.
The interface seems even smoother.
It always seems to be smoother after an update. Then back to normal.
Also PNG support, and the ability for the PS4 to speak your spectators comments.
The new 3.0 update supports PNG. There is an option in the share settings menu to switch between JPG and PNG.
Yes both these are features.
How about keep all the good stuff about the PS3 and make the PS4 do more.... better. Simple but effective.
It will, PS3 didn't get that 'good' stuff till years after launch, PS4 will get it eventually just not yet. Themes, better media playback ect all will come slowly
it shouldn't take so long though. they're not reinventing it. they made it sound like the media player waa going to be unique. the only great thing about it is you cam play mkv files... with the right audio codec.
Is that custom wallpapers in the video, or just a theme? I really want to just put an image as my wallpaper like on the PS3.
Still no word on increasing download speeds? My ps4 downloads patches and games off PSN at about 1/4 the speed that Steam grabs stuff and the PS4 is hard wired to the same router.
go to downloads tab. pause,unpause and wait a few seconds pause and unpause then wait a few seconds pause and wait about 5 seconds then unpause. do this a few times and within 30 seconds you should have max speed. has never failed me yet.i downloaded destiny last night (26gigs) in 19 mins
Looks great - love the groups and communities!
I want the ability to turn off the image capture everytime I get a trophy deleting all those images gets stupid after a while
There already is an option to do so in the share menu settings.
Aren't the people who sign up for this under NDA? Not wise posting footage of this, if that is the case. Especially with your name/profile visible in the video.
How about the ability to change your username. Instead of creating a brand new one. Long over due!
It would be pretty cool if they let us change our psn names I think that's long over due
