    The PS4 XMB?

    I was thinking as the PS4 XMB wont be the same as the PS3 but will it be customizable? considering this is the PS4 Menu below that we might be getting im not to sure im liking it but might need to get use to. I think its bit boxy windows 8 like, looks like there will be a profile where you click an its bringing tones of things up all at once rather than just the small profile we get on PS3! are they done with Avatars!! will we get to change backround!! will we have a theme's!!

    PS4 Interface!



    Tablet PS Interface!


    Sony Mobile PS user Interface! App showcased.



    Still hoping Sony show it in full at Gamescom because this is not that explainable how you navigate around the Interface! I just hope it will be as good as it looks.

    I agree. I think it WILL evolve just like the ps3's did. But honestly, themes? With all the things Sony has done right we're debating about THEMES????? lol. That being said, I would imagine they will add some sort of customizable features to the ps4's xmb right from the get go. IMO anyways.

    Looks good to me. And as already mentioned it will evolve over the course of the generation.

    Depending on how flexibly customizable it is, the themes could end up being very very cool and unique from each other.

    I think it really depends on what the front menu is--the very first thing you see when you turn on the console. Everything they've been showing so far seems at least one or two menu options deep.

    Wouldn't be surprised if they kept the startup noise/screen and the very first menu a surprise until launch day, actually. I kinda prefer that mystery and elation when I see it for the first time.

    First of all, this won't be XMB since the design isn't that of a cross media bar. But I think tile customization will be available so no worries.

    I don't think it looks much like Windows 8. To me it looks more like G+.

    I do hope it's fairly customiseable.

    Can't wait to fully see this in motion. I hated that video they put out a while back. Looking forward to Gamescom....hopefully we'll see more there.

    G+? Is that Google+?

    I think it looks great. They are advertising more games and movies and such, in your face so that you can see the content available to us gamers. I love that. It is about 100 times better looking "visually" than the XMB. Now we will see on our own how it is when actually using it, but I think it will rock.

    Personally I would prefer if they didn't use the UI as advertisement space at all. I want it as clean and straight forward as possible, as few steps as possible to get where you want to go, IMO. Keep the advertisement in PSS, that's how I prefer it.

    How about optional? Clean for you and in your face for those who want that?
