    PSU's PS4 UI Wishlist

    QUOTE the ideas you like!
    BOLD your suggestions please!

    A running list of suggestions sorted by most wanted
    +# represents the number of times a suggestion has been seconded.


    Friends List ease of use +5
    I hate having to click on friends, then click to the right just so I can scroll down to see who's online. Also tell us when our friends were last online. Perhaps even let us sort our friends into groups. Also, make it easier to manage friend and name requests (deleting multiple requests is very tedious). SIMPLE INTEGRATED SOCIAL

    Library Sorting +5
    Let us tag our games/apps or put them into folders and sort them by various methods. By default, they could be sorted into genres with info pulled from the PS Store. Also the ability (or set by default) to remove deleted content from library. Large collections could easily congest this area. Also tell us how much time we've spent on each game/app. PERSONALIZED

    Media Playback +4
    Self explanatory. Display your pictures, listen to your music, and watch your movies (including mkv) PERSONALIZED INTEGRATED

    Ability to appear offline +4
    If possible, appear offline to individual friends

    Themes & custom wallpaper +3
    Just like the PS3. With custom background music and key tones. Let developers put up ones inspired by their games in the Live Tiles. Let us make our own with easy software (possibly a download on the ps store so we can create them on our system!) PERSONALIZED

    Friend Notifications +2
    Notify us when friends go online or offline. Tell us if our friends are playing the same game we are. Also let us know right under their name when they were last online. SOCIAL

    Youtube app +2
    With the ability to upload to YouTube. Possibly with touchpad and voice control? INTEGRATED

    Message/Trophy Shortcut +2
    When a message or trophy notification pops up, press the PS button (twice?) to read it without having to navigate to the message. SIMPLE IMMEDIATE

    Touchpad control +1
    This seems like a no-brainer to me. Touchpads are great for moving through menus. Control for main screen, Web browser, and keyboard. Press R3 to switch between D-pad, sixaxis, and touchpad typing. SIMPLE IMMEDIATE

    Pause/resume downloads +1
    Self explanatory. Perhaps pressing OPTIONS on a download and/or having a dedicated icon for downloads on the menu. SIMPLE

    Offline mode for trophy list +1
    Just like ps3

    Export and edit shared video +1
    Ability to export saved videos to the main menu (and thus to external storage). Also a simple but powerful video editor with the ability to add commentary post recording on the system.

    Save multiple internet connections +1
    Just like the PSP, allow us to save multiple network configurations. SIMPLE

    Ability to change your real name in notifications to username +1
    This can be a problem when streaming, since we can't control some notifications

    Advance through lists quickly with shoulder buttons (or touchpad)
    Like Netflix or 360 does. SIMPLE IMMEDIATE

    Searchable download list
    Please don't make this mistake again. It will be even more necessary with the ps4. SIMPLE

    Mute camera/mic and all voice chat under "adjust devices"
    After holding down PS button and going to "adjust devices" have the option to mute the camera or mic (in case of a 3rd party mic with no mute switch/button). In addition the ability to mute all incoming voice chat here as well.

    Video chat
    With a great new camera, why not use it for video chat with multiple users like ps3? SOCIAL.

    Ability to use premium avatars
    I'm sure this is just a matter of time. For the moment in order to use a purchased avatar, I have to switch to my ps3.

    Netflix controller issue
    When using Netflix if I turn off the controller to conserve battery it pauses the video, forcing me to keep it on.

    Live from PlayStation upgrades
    Allow us to search/sort streams by title, game, and username. If I find a player streaming on Live From Playstation, allow me to subscribe to them, which sends me a notification whenever they stream a game and/or places it in the what's new section. Maybe have a featured section with featured streamers (this could be a good way to promote certain events/content. Maybe have a developer stream an upcoming game and do a Q/A with their fans!) SOCIAL. INTEGRATED

    Fix duplicate messages
    When logging in to my ps3, all of my messages sent to and from my ps4 show up in my inbox

    User-created shortcuts
    The ability to "pin" certain programs, games, or bookmarked websites to the main menu so they are always accessible and don't disappear.PERSONALIZED

    Group Messaging
    I do like the ability to create a group discussion on ps4, but sending one message to multiple users on ps3 is much easier. Perhaps when I select "create message" two options should pop up with descriptions underneath to clarify. One representing the current text chat sort of message, and the other for creating a message that is separate for each friend (like on ps3). Either way, having to select users separately is kind of tedious and also having my inbox flooded with messages telling me that users that I don't know left the conversation is not very fun. SOCIAL

    Voice Typing
    This is completely a novelty thing, but if the voice recognition software is already there, why not allow for voice typing? Yes I know there are voice messages but sometimes the situation calls for text instead (voice typing is faster and voice messages may be misheard) SIMPLE

    Blu-ray Features
    Show title and picture (if available) on main menu. PS3 Blu-ray remote and PS App control support. Show bit rate and bit depth when displaying information. Support for 3D Blu-ray discs and profiles 1.1 and 2.0

    I did wonder about Library Sorting when watching the various UI videos. Are there no options other than the default date-last-accessed ordering ?

    On the far right, there is an icon for "library" which is how you see everything you have downloaded. The main menu is sorted by last accessed (or is it most accessed? ) but the library has no sorting, it's just tiles of icons.

    I thought of a few more.

    1. Touchpad in web browser

    2. Pause/resume downloads

    3. Searchable download list

    ​Don't make the same mistake as the ps3.

    great list so far...my major gripe was the lack of media accessibility (music, photo, video) like on the PS3 as well as the lack of background wallpaper customization....hopefully these items are fixed soon with a patch update...

    ...funny how the tables have turned, now we're asking for what seems like basic instead of slightly more advanced like last time around (i.e. cross-game chat)..lol

    Thanks! I thought of a couple more for those who like to share.

    Youtube support

    A dedicated YT app and the ability to upload videos to Youtube

    Export and edit shared video

    Ability to export saved videos to the menu (and thus to external storage). Also a simple but powerful video editor with the ability to add commentary post recording on the system.

    Also

    Mute camera/mic under "adjust devices"
    After holding down PS button and going to "adjust devices" have the option to mute the camera or mic (in case of a 3rd party mic with no mute switch/button)

    Ability to appear offline

    Ability to set notifications for friends coming online
    can be disabled like all notifications

    YouTube app pronto!

    I'd also like a friends notification to be added. If you have people already signed in, you could get a notification displaying the amount of the friends that are currently online. If anyone signs in or off while you're online, it should operate the way it is on the PS3 today. I'm surprised they omitted such a simple feature.

    When someone sends a text or voice message, there should be a way to go straight to the message rather than having to launch the notifications list. A UI needs simplicity.

    Yeah I agree. This should be easy to implement.

    Yeah. You know how it shows a couple of people when you hover over friends? I think it would be cool if you could scroll through the list that shows up with the touchpad.

    To me this is the big one, I don't want an FAT32 formatting restrictions, if it's on my portable hard drive I want it playable on my PS4.
    Search Filters
    For both my friends list and my games, I wanna be able to quickly pare down my library by game category and friends by what they're playing or watching.
    Touchpad Navigation
    I want it to have the functionality of a mouse across the whole UI.

    From what I saw in the video in the Pulse Elite headset update thread, it sounded like BT keyboard support would be available at launch???

    Yeah wish the friends list was laid out more like the PS3, Who's ever online shows up at the top and everyone else is sorted by how long ago they were on.
    Perhaps this can't be done now that the list shows PS4, PS3 and Vita users?? but surprisingly it's one of the things I'm finding that I miss the most.

    It was supposed to be but the patch got delayed

    If a mod deems it worthy I think this would be a great thread to sticky to help make our ideas a reality

    @mini E. I mean that if I feel like playing a sports game for instance, but no one game in particular, I would like to just be able to click on sports and see all my sports games only. I plan on buying the bulk of my games on ps4 digitally so I want robust browsing options to best emulate how I'd look over my physical bluray collection.

    Okay cool I like it. Would these be something the user sorts into sets or something set by the system? At first I thought it would be difficult for the system to do it, but all games are separated in the ps store...

    ^I'm thinking system allocation, using the info garnered the PSN, but I would love an option to do it manually and create my own custom fields.

    some interesting wishes, this may need to be a sticky so we can continue to add and then cross off the items that do show in coming software upgrades.

    Okay I see. We were thinking of similar things I was thinking of something like a 'tag' function. So you could put games into multiple categories, for example a game could be both a "sports" when you play alone and a "party" game for when your friends come over. I'll modify the OP

    Bumping the thread for all of our new EU ps4 owners!

    I thought of some new ones today.

    Streaming Notifications
    If I find a player streaming on Live From Playstation, allow me to subscribe to them, which sends me a notification whenever they stream a game and/or places it in the what's new section.

    Fix duplicate messages
    This is a minor one but when logging in to my ps3, all of my messages sent to and from my ps4 show up in my inbox
