    Not bad. I miss the PS3's start up screen. Why'd they ever change that anyway?

    Because they felt like it wasn't just a console for games...they thought it'd be weird for people who don't play games on it but just watch netflix/hulu or blu-ray movies.

    I hope they do actually reuse the old SCE startup sound (not the PS1 part although that would be awesome too).

    I vote for the PS4 logo popping up and Dikembe Mutombo running in out of nowhere and spiking the "P" down, shouting "No no no!!!" as he runs off the screen.

    its ok.. too generic considerings its barely original and everyone else with Movie Maker could easily re-create it. Sorry for harshness.. but its just my views.

    meh Probably just PS4, then its says.. "soo yer wonna share this experience" (it can talk) your like... well no? "I just want to play Sonic The Hedgehog 2." Sega comes in oi yo pay $1 for a Knuckles skin. "ARGH modern games industrie". *holds on to PS2, and PSone dearly till death.

    Startup screens are iconic. If memory serves me right, Sega started the trend. The PS1 and Dreamcast were my favorite startups in the 90s. Xbox 360 and Gamecube for the 00s.

    Sorry, hate that. The PS1's time has come and long gone. The startup screen should be something short, fresh and new. Don't get bogged down in the past with nostalgia.
    Trophy-licious!

    I disagree, nothing beats the PS1 startup

    The idea itself is a good one. A nice revival of the past, and if that's the road Sony wanted to take, the video you created would be an excellent start. But as everyone else has pointed out, we're in an age of speed and simplicity, where the idea of a start-up screent to begin with is starting to become archaic and unnecessary.
    Read my work on Medium, my blog, and connect with me on Twitter.

    You guys don't get it, do you? The PS1 boot-up sequence is iconic because it reminds you of all of the great games that were released for the PS1. How will you be reminded of the PS4's potentially great games, later down the line, if it's boot-up sequence reminds you of the PS1?

    Like I said, it's a new experience so I would expect Sony to come up with something new and unique. Potentially new consumers don't care about nostalgia. I would say the same thing for Nintendo and Microsoft.

    Every time I boot up my PS3 I imagine angels shining a beam of light on my PS3.

    You too? Weird.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    I agree with Blacksite - new generation of Sony console gaming means a new, fresh startup screen...that's short, since they're all about instantaneous startup for games etc.

    Loved the PS3 startup, PS2's was decent and PS3's bored me.

    I don't even see the bootup screen anymore, the console is usually booted by the time the TV switches on.
