Typing on the crappy mobile site so forgive me for not linking and using n4g. Anyone is welcome to give revised links. But my God, it's about time we got an in depth look like this.

Hope it's better then that video i saw like a month ago. I will be back! EDIT~ answer no

~ FIRST OFF MUTE THE SHIT!

~sticking with the classic PlayStation UI, = don't like But that's an opinion thing. Dislike how everything is sorta in folders IMO

SUM up the garbage video

  1. user profile
  2. homescreen
  3. web browser

@XxR3m1xInHDn3D: Looks way better than X1s dull,cluttered, all black interface. Try again.

So far the UI is my least favorite thing regarding the PS4, but I'll probably get used to it eventually.

Yet another child friendly console UI

1: black interface? Surely that can be changed just like sony blue everywhere...

2: dull? sorry that has far more life in it that ps4

3: MS has said it's customizable so make i less cluttered has much as you like

@k2theswiss: Even if the black was changed, what's the point. Nothing will really show where's as on PS4 you'll see more of the Wallpaper. PS4 UI has just the right amount of "life". X1 is too cluttered and blocky by nature. PS4 has elegance to it.

X1's looks way better and faster

#11 Posted by NineTailedGoku (1927 posts) -

@mems_1224: In your opinion, no X1 doesn't look faster. Sorry Mems.

@k2theswiss: You picked the clearest PS4 UI pic you could find?Why would you do that?

is that the store screenshot in link?

You are right whats the point? who gives a damn about the background. They are only there to fill in the gaps, ease the eye and make things pop.

Sorry but there is nothing cluttered on there IMO but hey that's your opinion if you like simple ui that looks like clicking the bookmark bar

HUH? you the one posted the garbage quality video... I guess Microsoft is the only one who has the balls to post a official good quality video? Really only video i have seen of the ps4 ui is off screen projectors

and if you don't like the picture then why don't you pick one you like.

Nah, he's right. The X1's UI looks tons better than the PS4's. Tiles work for consoles, not PC's Microsoft.

#17 Posted by NineTailedGoku (1927 posts) -

@k2theswiss: No, that's the main UI. The part that launches games. Sony showed that months ago, have you not seen it? Anyways, this place is dead. The old system wars would have at least 40-60 posts for a topic like this by now. The new site turned away that many people?

So you only make threads to get the biggest possible reaction instead of having meaningful discussions? LOL

Well yes som people have left, they might come back once the website smooths out, BUT it's also 2 am EST on a weekday...

NOW yes i do recall them showing a few pictures, it's been a while but anyways here you go

1: heres your file format... I can't tell what they hell they showing due to the quality

2:notifications

3: Soon cas you click on something from home screen it goes to this

@k2theswiss: Yes, I posted the video for Intel, not for its screen grabs to be compared to HD shots of another UI.

How is this http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/19/198671/2535906-1200018176-xbox-.jpg

Better than this?

Unless it's a battle for most cluttered, PS4 UI wins this.

ya That looks far better then what was shown on that video. IDK really where that is placed on that ui though you said it's the "my games" section Similer to what the 360 has in a way. Sure isn't the home screen, so really comparing isn't good . With the MS pic it's under "my pins" Where you can pretty much move what you want, which in the end on that picture looks cluttered.

#24 Posted by kingoflife9 (1987 posts) -

looks like a confusing and boring mess. makes gaming less fun.

#25 Posted by k2theswiss (16598 posts) -

looks like SW is losing the cow fanboys on this one

#26 Posted by Alucard_Prime (2739 posts) -

Lol.....ok I know games is what counts but this is horrible, you 'd have to pay me to spend time in that blue mess......I guess I'll hold judgement until i try the thing myself.

#27 Posted by XxR3m1xInHDn3D (1967 posts) -

Many cow tears have been shed in this thread.

#28 Posted by Mozelleple112 (6626 posts) -

@k2theswiss: It still looks vastly superior to the garbage X1 layout though.

PS4's UI reminds me a lot of PS3s, which was absolutely brilliant. 360's was cluttered garbage.

#29 Posted by kipsta77 (938 posts) -

Doesn't look like anything special, but as long as it's functional, I guess that's all that matters.

LOL Nice rationalization...elegance? Even in that link the UI looks like sh*t..

#31 Edited by CyberLips (1815 posts) -

It looks good, obviously we'll have the option to change the color from blue. I love how people hate on the interface of both consoles. What did you expect? You navigate with your controller, it's not going to be like a PC....

Was this designed by the same person who did the new Gamespot layout?

#34 Edited by lockjaw333 (1741 posts) -

Looks similar to the PS3 XMB, which I really didn't like. Found it boring and needlessly convoluted. This looks similar in that regard.

#35 Posted by finalstar2007 (24947 posts) -

Not going to watch, i need to surprise myself when i try it out myself next month :P

#36 Posted by GTSaiyanjin2 (5809 posts) -

I like it, it reminds me of the PS3 UI, which I liked over the mess that was the ever changing 360 slow UI.

@Mozelleple112: You thought the PS3's UI was brilliant????

Wow....just wow...

#38 Posted by danabo (2474 posts) -

The PS4 UI looks like a poor clone of the 360 dashboard, it's a mess compared to the Xbox One previews I've seen - to the point it's quite off-putting (as was the XMB). Sigh. As long as there's a boot to disc option, all's well.

#39 Posted by k2theswiss (16598 posts) -

it's a garbage video and There's not much too it... it's just looks just like ps3's with little more features

#40 Posted by fusionhunter (2009 posts) -

Despite the low quality it's still noticeable how much faster the UI responds. It's clean and simple so putting your own wallpaper on there would look pretty slick.

Only looks dull as it seems they've got next to nothing loaded on it, don't have a profile signed in, most of the stuff is in offline mode, they seem to spend most of their time in the settings and web browser and the video's in about 360p. Imagine looking at the new Xbox's UI without any of the online stuff loaded in and the same circumstances and you'd think that were dull too. Personally i'll be happy slapping a nice wallpaper down on there and it looks quicker than the Xbox's which is the main thing for me.

Looks fairly even on the UI front to me. Only real difference outside of the aesthetics is that the PS4's is a bit quicker.

#44 Edited by megaspiderweb09 (3686 posts) -

Some people need to go outside more often if all they can bitch about is the look of a UI they have yet to use

#45 Posted by 2mrw (4957 posts) -

those 2 guys made me hate it although it looks perfect.

#46 Edited by Bazooka_4ME (2536 posts) -

Lets wait til we see some customized themes for it.

Oh I'm sorry, there must be some unwritten rule that Xbox is the only likable UI in gaming. Didn't know that, carry on.

It's simple and effective without using the whole screen. If PS4 UI is anything like PS3's, it's a win.
