So after viewing the better quality video (thank you!) I'm pretty sure the screen they started with was the resume screen, as it said shuhei was logged in already. Then it goes to the main screen (skipping the what's new screen-adding more to the idea that it's a resumed session. Some have speculated this as the ps store, but I don't see it. It's more likely to be downloaded games but I'm almost certain it's the main screen). I think the system either shows you the most recently used games/apps or you can 'pin' them to this screen (Customization!) . Notice the "dualshock 4" notification in the corner
As you can see, when he highlights (selects? It makes the sound of selection but I think if he pressed 'x' it would have started. Perhaps he pressed 'options'?) a game, it envelops the screen similar to the xmb (which I am SO glad they kept!) and we can see the "live tiles" associated with that game.
Unfortunately we can't see the bottom left corner of the screen so we don't know what buttons he's pushing, but I'm guessing he pushes the PS button to access the top menu(which preserves some XMB icons! ) I'm wondering what sort of things will show up under 'notifications'. Maybe system messages such as "download completed" or maybe someone commenting on your shared media or a challenge from a friend? Also, what could that TV icon on the right be? PlayStation TV? Remote play? Hmmmm...
Live from PlayStation. Now this is interesting. 'live' 'archive' and 'interactive'. So I'm guessing 'archive' is either your shared or downloaded videos or the most popular ones from all time and 'interactive' are the games that can be interfered with? (note the 'interact' option under the KZ: SF stream later) I'm pretty sure this either shows the most popular videos/streams (Maybe it could show the most popular stream from the most popular games? ) or just the ones your friends are doing or watching, because that would be chaos otherwise. Note the people playing/people commenting counts under the videos.
When he selects KZ you can see in the top right a live feed from the streaming player (and a camera and muted mic icon underneath). Shuhei presses square for fullscreen. He joins, kicks some hig ass, and then hits the share button. Now here's the tricky part.
Note that the game runs for a second before the audio fades out and the share screen comes up. When he goes to select a screenshot, it's mysteriously already there!!! So I'm thinking during that pause before the screen came up, he hit the share button TWICE to take a quick screenshot without disturbing the game. That or he was fumbling to find the button and the system takes one automatically when you press SHARE.
So two more quick things. When he uses the keyboard I'm 99% sure he's using the touchpad to type. Note the icon below space to switch to the D-pad and recall that the demonstration/love triangle video showed the player using sixaxis to type. Also note the same shortcut keys for space/backspace etc. and the predictive text.
So yeah. Digging this new interface. I'm glad it takes queues from the XMB (notice the 'ribbon' in the background too?) Pretty excited. My only questions are:
1. Where is the 'what's new' screen? Does it appear only in a cold boot?
2. How does one access their stored media?
3. Can we navigate the menus with the touchpad/sixaxis/analog stick/Move?
4. Is there an easy way to skip through big lists such as the shoulder buttons or flicking the touchpad?
Check out these sweet custom background mock ups from a GAF user:
Perhaps the leftmost icon (the one with the symbols) goes to the what's new screen, or a screen with all of the options and this is the customized screen.
lending more cred to my theory, notice the order has changed in these pics:
Here's some screens for you.
Never mind the attachments.

Both MS and Sony at least are focusing on building OS's that are about speed and ease of use rather than just having the fastest games hardware.

After booting up my ps3 recently, I realized the what's new icon on ps3:
Is the same as the icon on the left on ps4:
So I'm fairly certain the leftmost logo is the expanded "what's new" screen. This one:
I loved the user interface interface.. haha :P The one thing I want is better performance out of it. The ps3 is so slow in that aspectSix Years With PSU!~ Favourite Games of all Time~ Smash Bros, Spyro, GTA series and Elder Scrolls Series

Not going to lie, I kinda like the current XMB better. Seems more simple and no-nonsense approach. The new one looks like a jazzed up Xbox trying to "Fit-in" with a live party. I mean, it isn't bad or anything, but looks too commericialized. lol! I just hope we can still have custom themes and dynamic themes.
To be honest the new Dynamic menu looks like a way better version the the Xbox dashboard.
It looks a lot more user friendly and easier to understand by having different size icons instead of the same size tiles. I think it's a great change so far from what I've seen.
It looks like it has no ads until you navigate to the store, unlike MS where you see Doritos and progressive ads every time you turn on your console.
But until I get my hands on it I can't properly judge it.
All my opinion, don't take Anything I say as fact.

people don't realize this but Sony's XMB is quite fast. While it could be smoother, I find it to be faster to navigate through. Granted that it's not the prettiest of XMBs out there, but it's fast and I'm quite sure that with the overall they are giving it while still keeping it's speed that it will be much smoother too.
