    Angry The PS4's GUI really is garbage!

    What happened to the wonderful XMB? This new GUI is all over the place! I want to keep my games together (especially since I am going digital-only) and instead it constantly rearranges the main menu depending on what I used last. This results in a mess that mixes games with apps and system-specific functions. There is no structure whatsoever!

    Gone are the days where you had dedicated sections for games, music, video, etc.

    Anyone else feel like this?

    Do I like the new design, yes I love it.

    We do need some folders, or some other solutuon, because it's a bit unorganized.

    Honestly the easiest way to get around is using voice commands.

    I like the design but I agree, there needs to be options for organization. Such as how you want the main icons to show up, shortcuts for games and options, etc. All this stuff could easily be remedied by a firmware update. Hopefully we will get something like this.

    I kind of like the over all design, but it is a mess when it comes to the main icon bar. I really want some kind of folders or such so you can tidy it up a bit and keep everything separated. Games under one icon/folder, apps under another and so on. That's one of the things I like better with XMB.

    I like everything but how the games and apps are displayed horizontally. If the xmb was as fast as the ps4 UI then I'll take that. I still believe Sony will flesh it out

    Their new XMB needs some work, sure. But I still prefer it over the slower than **** PS3 XMB.

    And we are talking about the UI, not the OS. The operating system is just fine. The user interface could use a little change.

    Sony my friend didn't even bather trying to develop something new. They just got this piece of **** from the internet for free and spent about 3 hours working on it and that is all. I agree with you that the PS4 OS is totally garbage. I was hoping for something new to see different design, layout, options, messaging, different categories, and etc. I still like my PS3 XMB more than my PS4.

    That would annoy me too. Customisation is key to this generation I thought.

    I don't mind the layout, but yeah, some folders to shorten up that run and keep it clean would be nice. But first I'd like them to patch whatever it is in 1.7 that rendered my Pulse headset useless!

    The only thing I like about the new OS is the looks, the rest I agree is pretty much under average.

    I find myself not looking forward at all booting my PS3 as its interface runs laboriously slow. I do think things were easier to find in the XMB format, but I've not really tried to exploit the PS4 one to say it is better or worse. I will come to use the PS4 interface much more in the coming months so I'd probably be able to give a better formed opinion then. However, when comparing the actual vanilla look of the PS3 to the PS4 one, I'm kind of divided - I would think that the PS4 just wins out. (purely subjective, of course)

    PS Live is an awesome feature, but the OS is missing a lot overall.
    Hopefully Sony take the Share Blog seriously.

    The PS3's XMB was awesome but i love the new OS on the PS4. I don't have any complaints with it. It's simple and lightning fast. What more could you want?

    There definitely needs to be more organization, or at least the option to have organization.

    -As you buy more and more games, the games are just scattered across the bar. Imagine what it will look like once people have 20-30 games.
    -The apps section shows both the apps you own and the apps you don't own. Da fuq is that?
    -The feed is taken up with ads. It looks more like a billboard than an activity wall. You should ideally be able to 'subscribe' to games you want to see updates for.

    Plus, the feed doesn't auto-refresh, we need some background themes, and we need MP3/DLNA support.

    This, I also do love this new Live feature but tbh it's not like the OS itself is garbage it is only currently lacking lots of features, so the OS per se ain't really bad all they need to know it's add lots of stuff we already had on XMB.

    There are things that they can definitely improve but there is a dedicated section for apps and your library.

    The main hub acts more like recently used list.....the only problem is that it can get long. They do need to work on that. The OS is pretty fast and responsive which I do like.

    Think you're right, we should get something like this in the near future, better organisation method. As others have said, being able to make you own selection for the main icons. For example i'd like to have just the IGN app in my main bar rather than the whole TV selection, don't use the others anywhere near the amount i check out IGN.

    Personally i'm looking forward to a more efficient way to start a chat party with friends, too many button presses at the moment for my liking. I'm sure all these improvements and many more will get there. Question is how long will it take.

    the OS isn't garbage, you mean you don't like the layout or the lack of organization. the OS is super fast and offers a good amount of features.
