According to Director of Program Management, Jason Ronald, the higher resolution dashboard will not take any memory away from games, allowing all titles to run as usual.
Can’t believe a next gen console was built around a 1080p SDR interface to begin with.
It’s not that serious my guy
I don't have a PS5, but I can say I 100% prefer the Xbox UI over my PS4'S. Also my TV upscale 1080p images to 4K, so the Xbox UI has always looked crystal clear to me.
Its next gen. One of the biggest leaps from the PS4 to the PS5 is the UI. It doesnt take time for nothing, like the ps4 does... in some cases it was an eternity. With the PS5 its lightning fast and very easy to use. The integration of the PS Stores works like never before. This was a point where Microsoft version was better.
@darkrider is that why so many ps5 owners including myself hate the home button and how it doesn't go to turn off the power when you hold it down anymore? That was a stupid change.
Realistically it was probably by choice. They're trying to manage system resources and Noe that the sdk's have matured enough they're Abel to implement the 4k dashboard with out potentially taking away any resources from the games. In all honesty that was my biggest concern for me by far. I bet you wouldn't be saying that when Sony finally implements Quick Resume to PS5 in the future.
Course not, then Quick Resume would be the most innovative, greatest feature this gen, and they will lay claim it is "not the same" as Xbox's quick resume, and Sony developed it from the ground up in collaboration with Naughty Dog, the best developers on the planet. /s
“Course not, then Quick Resume would be the most innovative, greatest feature this gen” When it works it’s great. The problem is that it’s inconsistent and not every game supports the feature such as Hades for example.
will they? I have major doubts. loading games are super fast. This feature last gen would be great, where games could take 1, 1.30, 2 minutes or more, but now is seconds, you dont have almost loading times and we are still in the start of the gen. They will get even faster.
whats the point when games take less than 3 seconds to load on PS5.
I'm still waiting for VRR on PS5, which is a bigger feature than a 4k dashboard in my opinion. VRR actually affects the games!
I can't believe you didn't believe it, even with last gen only having a 720p dashboard.
@jin_sakai Hades does support quick resume, it just didn’t the first few hours it was available. A lot of titles launch without it and get it added soon after but obviously not all.
made by a software company.
Of course it's good for the Xbox Series X to get a 4K UI. What is so silly about the whole format wars thing is that people argue to defend their preferred console and criticise the other preferred console just because of brand loyalty even when it doesn't make sense. When Digital Foundry's John Linneman pointed out that the Series X would only have 1080p UI there were people all over social media attacking him, he got proper abuse - but that's his job! And some people were saying play 'games not UI'! But don't shout down good features just because your favourite platform doesn't have it because they will eventually come. This is a good update.
It is just the startup environment. Glad their focus was on everything else before this. Literally, I am not going to boot my XB and say, "Wow, this changes my whole gaming experience". Personally, to me, this is a wasted effort that could've been put to other things. But, nonetheless I am glad they probably did some other optimizations that makes it so this doesn't take more resources from games. That was the most important thing to me.
VRR is the bigger feature that the competition is missing
Exactly, apart from say what, 15 seconds on boot up, and 15 seconds on shutdown, I am never on the UI dashboard
It doesn't matter about the games, if the system can't handle it then it's going to crash along with the games lol
Why do people keep calling it 4k?
The same reason that when you buy a 2x4 it isn't 2x4, and when you buy a hard drive its gigabytes and megabytes are measured by 1000's and not 1024's.
Nah that's cap, ms hasn't once said it's a 4k dashboard update, just higher resolution in places...no hdr support either🤷♂️
@iRetrouk Not sure why everyone is disagreeing with you. You only stated facts.
I think my comment came over a bit more rude than intended, that and maybe cause I'm more of a playstation user, its all good, If I had of posted something similar in a ps thread Ida got the same, fair play for the shoutout though, respect👊
Will be much cleaner looking ui when they release it. Don't know about any of you but my monitor makes an annoying click noise when it jumps to 4k and back. There's another annoyance although minor on some of the menu options when you click it the font seems to bleed in anyone else notice that?
I hate the UI for Xbox, I hope it gets a serious overhaul. Does anybody remember the blades UI from when the 360 launched? I thought the was great and easy to navigate. I think as it stands the PS4 XMB is the best of the bunch.
it gets the job done, i like some aspects of it, but i'd like a minimal option with icons along the top or bottom so i could see my background/wallpaper more clearly. Other than some of the lack of functionality with the ps4 xmb, visually i like its home screen the best.
Yea that is another thing with the Xbox UI. There’s just so much going on. I remember that Xbox started the whole background/wallpaper feature and then as they evolved that got screwed into backgrounds for your Avatars. I think making it simple is really the better way to go instead of constant ads and information everywhere.
Personally preference, but I will say the my xbox ui is way faster than my ps4 pro and i even upgraded the pro with a Samsung evo ssd. I have to say though that I really liked the 360 blades!
I agree that there’s some serious lag when you go in the PSN store on a PS4 Pro that kind of ganks everything after that. At least that’s been my experience.
World's most pointless update
It is funny, I get down votes, from people who don't even play on Xbox, and clearly have 0 idea how the Xbox UI looks, and works. Again, I will take Xbox UI over Playstation 4, and add Nintendo Switch into the mix, all day long. It is easier to Navigate. It is also much more efficient than both of those consoles UI.
