RUMOR: PS4 UI Overhaul, Images Included (EDIT: Fake)

Authenticity is still in question, but pretty decent fake if so. If true we'll likely hear more at Gamescom.

Also, Sony actually altering their console UI? Color me suspicious.

Just saw this on N4G. Folders are just what I've been wanting to fix that mess of an interface.

Scrolling boxes! NOICE.

Looks pretty sweet, can't wait.

Do want

Fake, it has Killzone Shadowfall in the "My favorite games" tab

#8 Posted by PinkiePirate (2086 posts) -

Wow, looks much cleaner. Excited for this.

#9 Posted by R3FURBISHED (10501 posts) -

Looks exactly the same to me.... though I thought the PS4 UI was nearly identical to the PS3s

#10 Posted by remiks00 (1810 posts) -

Seems legit

#11 Posted by Mr_Huggles_dog (1000 posts) -

That doesn't look too bad.

I was worried at first as I think the UI is just fine...but, nope....that looks cool.

#12 Posted by _Matt_ (8908 posts) -

I hope this is real. The ui needs something like this, and I like the idea of expandable notifications even in game

Good catch and debunked!

#14 Posted by FastRobby (1497 posts) -

Looks much better, what is that "snap mode" like image, has this always been like this when you get invited to play a game?

#15 Posted by iambatman7986 (408 posts) -

I'm liking it. Hope it's real.

Topkek.

#17 Edited by Desmonic (13768 posts) -

I'm 90% sure it's fake at this point in time.

Notice how in the first image you posted, you can see the "RP" symbol in the Killzone:SF square. It's a "mistake" Sony wouldn't make nor have any need of making, since they have full access to PR material of each of their games. Plus there is one from Rogue Legacy with the trophy about beating a Boss, yet not Boss in sight. Though of course that could just be regular "trophy lag".

Still, I'd say to not put many hopes into this. Looks nice and all, but seems far more like a UI template someone made at this point.

@R3FURBISHED: do u even have a ps3? The ui are vastly different

I more used to seeing notifications coming from the right side.

#21 Posted by RR360DD (11802 posts) -

Hope its real, the current PS4 UI is garbage.

#22 Edited by GamersJustGame (307 posts) -

Looks good. I hate the current UI. Love the invite notification.

#23 Posted by scottpsfan14 (4761 posts) -

I like it. And change that fucking depressing music. I prefer the music when you log out to change users. More PlayStationy in my opinion.

#24 Posted by coasterguy65 (5927 posts) -

Looks good...pretty much anything would be an improvement. Hopefully they add the ability to use themes again.

Is that Bush in the TLOU from the PS2?

EDIT: That cannot be the re-mastered version? Is that shit real?

Defensive? That is a 50 dollar PS4 Naughty Dog game? The graphics masters? That bush screams.... WTF am I even here.

Continue please. Let me know how you really feel.

I will do..

TLOU Remastered looks great as a whole. And it's still using the same assets as the PS3 version. So that shows just how good ND were with graphics since a simple resolution and texture upgrade made it look great.

Forza 5 was built for more powerful hardware in mind. PS2 trees should not be used in a full next gen game. But yeah, Forza 5 looks great as a whole too. But you would just expect the fine details to be better on a next gen game that has no last gen roots.

And you are the defensive one tbh. You get all attacky when I'm only joking about. It's just games lol. I amactually really looking forward to what Xbox brings in the future. I guess people can only take a joke so far with you before they get attacked and cussed.

#29 Posted by Nengo_Flow (9656 posts) -

Im still shocked that you cant customize it like the PS3 UI.

Why?

If all they included were folders, I'd be happy. The rest of the stuff looks pretty good though as well.

#32 Edited by Alcapello (897 posts) -

Could be perfect timing for that oh so sweet Christmas day.

Only 4 month away!!

PS4, it only do everything!!

Looks great though! Really hope this is true. The current UI is cluttered so I'd love to lump some of my games into folders. Also, custom backgrounds please!

Everything else looks great. I just hope that alerts won't fill up the screen like that.

#35 Posted by Spartan070 (16333 posts) -

Amazing, now please allow themes/wallpapers.

#36 Edited by mems_1224 (46973 posts) -

about time they added folders because that one long line of games looks ugly.

#37 Posted by finalfantasy94 (26437 posts) -

the trophy thing would be actually cool.

#39 Posted by Desmonic (13768 posts) -

@AdobeArtist: In theory the 2nd screen would appear if you clicked on the PS button after unlocking the trophy. Likewise for the invite.

Alas, it's fake so it doesn't matter.

#40 Posted by NoirLamia777 (2146 posts) -

Sad this is fake, this is exactly what I want! I hate how you can't organize anything.

#41 Posted by Alcapello (897 posts) -

Look like I have to reiterate again. Sony is a console maker. They put in a numbe 1 focus, and it is to pop in disc and play games. Everything else is bonus and you should be thankful.

Also stop talking smack about the system if you know what good for you just take a look at the ruins lemming live in now. Idiots

#42 Posted by AdobeArtist (22845 posts) -

Surprising this isn't already a feature from the start.

#43 Posted by Animal-Mother (26778 posts) -

Despite this was proven fake it's a nice little Ui update.

Although I agree. Get dem wallpapers themes up and running sony.
