    So...what did you think of the PS4 UI Interface?

    I hate the video that that IGN took of the UI interface. It was terrible but the system does look pretty cool. Wonder how much customizability it will have. Anyone know of any other videos that might show some more detail (not including that crappy one that Sony had a couple months back).

    The Sony stream that was also available right here on PSU.com. Y U NO WATCH?

    On topic, I liked it quite a bit. It's definitely VERY different, so much more oriented around the visuals, but the top menu (with Notifications, Friends, Trophies, etc.) still looks kind of like the XMB and is very unobtrusive/elegant, merely appearing on the bottom of the screen. I appreciate that. Whether I like the panels for games, trailers, friend activity, etc. really just depends on how "smart" the system is in predicting what somebody WANTS to see.

    I think the new UI is a nice evolution of the current XMB, looks very clean and from what I can tell lets you navigate around pretty quickly!

    Thats my take on it as well. Its clean and responsive with no clutter. And I'm sure we can still use background themes.

    so the xmb still shows up on the top but when you highlight a tab, the squares populates the bottom of the screen? so instead of having the items on a list, its more of a tile setup? alrighty

    Close, but I think it's the opposite. XMB icons appear along the bottom, and the visual tiles come up from each category to fill the top.

    Hope we get a better video later where the camera actually focuses on the UI

    Did look fast and clean, KZ loading up in 5 or so seconds was pretty awesome.

    EDIT: Also trying to work out what the "Live From Playstation" menu is/does.

    Looks like games being played by your friends that you can watch/join.

    Looks almost like the interface from the current store. Not sure I'm liking it right now. I need to see some actual footage of it moving fast, etc. I'm on the fence.

    huh? at 1:23 mark you clearly see the regular xmb on the top of the screen (more like the middle of the screen, looks like you hit up or the ps button to get to that menu) and then he scrolls to the live feed tab and that brought up the stream panels....with the categories on the left

    I like the PS4's UI. It looks like it will get the job done.

    I think I'm going to wait until I get my hands on it to judge. I like that they kept the Cross Media Bar concept and expanded on it, but it's kinda hard to tell just how everything will work out, what features it has and how much customization it's capable of.

    glad I found this thread I was about to post a question to see if anyone has found a direct feed video since, ya know, the production team should be fired.

    PS4 Launch Edition
    PS3 60GB (Upgraded to 500GB)
    Phenom II X4 955, HD 7770 1GB, 6GB RAM

    If you add my PSN say you're from PSU or I might delete it!
