    PS4 start up (boot up animation) screen (opinions)

    I have to be honest, the first thing that I remember fondly about the original playstation console when I was a kid was the boot up animation. Of course, the games were amazing at that time and it still is now, but I was in awe of that whole playstation experience coming up in the screen in the form of an animation. It felt almost like you were anticipating a great movie and that alone, made me happy and I am still reminiscing all those nostalgic times and great games with my old playstation console.

    I loved the PS2 start up animation but it did come across to me as a bit utilitarian and futuristic which I was not against. The PS3 boot up screen was so ingenious and at the same, it felt like the orchestra sound and that wave animation just solidified that whole PS3 experience.

    I am looking for opinions on whether you prefer for the PS4 to completely drop the start up animation or to implement a new kind of minimalist start up animation?

    I love firing up PSOne classics on my vita simply for the start up and chime. Send a shiver down my spine and brings back so many fond memories

    How about this.



    Ok, to be perfectly honest the startup screen has little to no value to me, but I thought this was funny. I was actually trying to find the Laughing Kaz .gif but I found this instead.

    Considering one of Sony's top priorities it to make your experience as 'immediate' as possible, there might not even be a start-up screen.

    I think if we do see a start up screen, it will only be when you do a hard boot on the machine. I am guessing when the system is already running and you bring it out of sleep mode (or what ever mode they call it) it will just fade in to the UI.

    sadly, i'm afraid this might be true.

    I hope so.

    OP, you aren't the only one who feels this way. Check out how many youtube videos there are of console boot-ups. By the way, does anyone miss the screen that used to come on when you stated up ps3 games from the xmb?

    I'm assuming this is fan made? Looks pretty cool.

    The best startup screen so far, in my oppinion =) I love it!

    I swear, PS4 is brining us back to the great days of PS2, except this time with CGI level graphics =D

    You can see the startup in the new UI video, assuming it doesn't change. Was just a white PS logo fading into a black screen, very minimal. I liked it.

    The PS4 one is horrible. The PSone start up brings back so many memories but I have to say the PS3 start up is certainly the best. The one shown in this video is also nice (as pointed out by danny):

    I could do without one, just another screen to keep me away from my games. I know I'm playing a PS4...I bought the damn thing!

    Yes yes yes. Exactly what i was thinking. Old symbol, new ps4 symbol. Nice white background like psx. We've had 2 black backgrounds, lets go back to classic. Even though they'll probably go with black, would still love to see the old school and new playstation together. I guess a darker background would go with the console colour.

    I'm ok with whatever they have. When they changed the PS3's start up with the Slim's launch. I was upset for like 5 seconds.

    This. Start up screens are nice to see for the first time, but after a while you just don't pay attention to it and they're more of a pain than a pleasure.

    Not sure if you meant to refer to ps4? The one in that video may be a placeholder. I wouldn't mind if that is what it looks like for a resume session, but i'd like a proper boot up screen for a normal power on. I think sony may forego a lengthy boot up because they are trying to push immediacy with the GUI

    I'm not particularly worried about the intro visuals, but the sound aspect better be practical/functional so you can easily determine the sound levels on your system.

    And while we're onto sound, could we please not have xmb-previews that are way to loud?

    Very true. Agreed about the xmb previews. Cash Guns Chaos was the worst! I always had to skip over it
