A Picturesque Look at the PlayStation 4 User Interface
Wondering what the new PlayStation 4 user interface has to offer above and beyond the PS3’s XMB? Well wonder no more, as we’ve gotten a dozen new pics showing it off.
PlayStation Europe community manage Chris Owen posted the pics of the unique new UI on his Twitter, giving many of us our first look at the various menus and options the PlayStation 4 will offer. The old XMB wasn’t a terrible interface, but it wasn’t always the fastest way to navigate. The way the PS4 breaks its various menu components down appears to make it much easier to find what you need quickly.
In addition to the console layouts of things like the Home screen, the Editing screen and the What’s New screen, Owen also provided a look at the mobile versions of Sony’s interface. Second screen connectivity is shaping up to be a huge part of the next generation consoles, and with the PS4’s remote play options, a good UI on tablets and phones will certainly come in handy.
