    PS4's customizable dashboard. How do you want to be able to customize it?

    So the PS4's OS is supposed to let you customize it's dashboard layout.
    In what ways would you like to be able to customize your own dashboard?

    Or do any of you have any info on this other than "it's customizable"?

    I don't really know. It depends on how they let me customize it.

    This is awesome if it;s true. One of my things about the Android OS - shifting screens and adding widgets, etc to your needs.

    I'd love to be able to arrange things the way I play/use it. But without knowing too much about the details of such, it's hard for me to get too excited about it.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    Yep hard to get excited about something we know almost nothing about.

    Of course, I was just wondering what ways you would like to be able to customize it.
    Since we don't have any solid info on exactly how we can customize it I was thinking we could just speculate and come up with different ideas, that's all.

    I'm already excited about being able to customize my dashboard.
    Can't wait until we have concrete details, but until then we can always speculate.

    As long as the store is not implemented in the actual front page of the UI (unless implemented really well), everything is fine by me.

    As long as I can customise the time and date I don't rally care. PS3 always annoyed me by putting the date in front of the time.
    e.g
    06/06 22:30

    Looking at this picture it reminds me of the XMB but with picture icons for each category instead.
    Until we see it in action we won't know for sure but I'm assuming that when you scroll over an icon/category it lets you navigate down or brings up a list of options for that category.
    As you can see in the pic, Knack is selected and under it is a list of options.
    I just hope it's more involved than just changing your background pic and color.
    I do like the look of this picture, really want to see more.

    ^^ so it seems the PS4 PSN store will not be implemented in the UI, fantastic news! I hope the friendlist will be a separate list too, and this console will be epic!

    probably have all my $#@! on the left side of the screen like a desktop on the computer, but have friends lists and gaming stuff on the right, separate from everything else....

    Allow for custom folders/views.

    Would be great to have movies, music and games better organised. (Other than the album name workaround)

    True, that'd be very handy.

    I agree, but they could still use "the album name workaround"
    they would just have to implement a really good filtering system to navigate through them fast and easy.
    But honestly I'm with you and would really like a change to something different yet efficient and fun to use at the same time.

    Search feature For games and friends. If someone has 1000 friends cycling through will take a while.
    Same with hundreds of downloaded games.

    It would be great if you could fully customize it but I think if there is going to be customization it will be somewhat limited.

    I would like to be able to place the widgets/UI functions on screen according to my preferences. Also, the capability to add/remove/resize them.

    Don't like the term dashboard I prefer home screen.

    I personally don't care what they let people customize end of the day I just want to be able to access stuff quickly and for blutooth support for keyboards etc.

    Well if it's going to take up more than 2gb of RAM it better be a mind blowing UI with LOTS of customization.

    I'm sure it will. PS3 has them so PS4 most likely will.
