PS4 screens show user interface

Sony has released some lovely new high res screens for the PlayStation 4 user interface. They look so good you'll almost think it's the real thing.
Some of these have been seen before, although not in such high definition glory. So since it's a quiet day let's have a look.
PS4 is out on November 29.

Hmm, I really wish we had a video of how the ui looks from when you first boot up like we did for the early Xbox UI look.


I think these screens look alright, but I'm confused as to how it all works together.  How will my home page look and then how does navigation to other sections look.



I will say this, the more I see, the more I can see similarities with MS' design choices.  Using large images to point out the important content for each section.  An overall 'flat' look. I'm not sure if I like it or not yet.

The interfaces for both consoles look great. As for usability, it will be difficult to know until people actually get to use them. This is really what Valve needs to do with SteamOS if it is to stand any chance of competing for casual gaming.

It reminds me of the installation screen for WIndows XP. Blue and Green and all. I don't like it very much, but it doesn't offend me either. It's... O.K.

Just hope it is smooth and snappy. Nothing worse than a jarring, freezing UI. The current PS Store is a lot like that.

I think the PS4 will have (it better) the juice to minimize/eliminate any lag on the main Dash, and it's sub screens.
If there is any delay, I would start to question the programming team at Sony. Because the specs of the PS4, are BEASTLY...
So it wouldn't be a hardware issue...

I don't like PlayStation, but this UI feels more refined and nicer then what we've seen of the XB1 UI so far...

After looking at both UI's I think I will like the Xbox One UI over the PS4 UI.  I'm still getting a PS4 first but after watching the video of the Xbox One UI in action and hoping that the PS4 UI is smoother than the current UI.

Wow looks more win 8/metro than I thought it would be.

At least from what I can see on this phone.

I honestly didn't care much for the whole design aspect originally, but it's really growing on me. I thought Microsoft would be the ones to blow my socks off refining their whole Metro/ModernUI look or theme, but Sony seems to be doing a great job here. I only wish they'd push it to the Vita too, as I'm not fond of those spheres on the Vita. :p


As others said though, unless the UI runs smooth as butter, I won't be particularly excited. It absolutely annoys me when companies spend more time on animations than they do optimizing the software/hardware to actually run those sleek animations. (one of the reasons I never wanted to jump on the Android platform for instance)
