I don't care what it looks like as long as it is fast. I want to be able to fire off button inputs from memory and not even wait for the UI to respond visually before it starts doing what I want. If I'm waiting for the UI to catch up, I'm not going to be impressed.

I let out an audible "holy shit" when that happened. Very impressive.

And yeah, the UI looks pretty nice from what I can see.

What am I looking at here?

EDIT: Oh, that the clock is not there!

For those of you who just HAVE to have a clock they make a device for that, its called a clock



UI looks fantastic

one of my favorite XMB features is the "this game isnt loaded but heres a little clip, a big wallpaper, and maybe a song/some audio from the game"

really made the ps3 ui stand out over the 360's old spice ads

I still haven't seen any kind of games library in the UI. If all of the games and apps that you own end up on that one screen, then what happens when you have tons of games? I am going to be seriously pissed off if we still don't get a simple games library where we can manage our games, downloaded or not. We better as hell not have to clutter a single screen with hundreds of games and apps, and have to deal with an awful download list to re-download games that we have uninstalled.

That's reassuring. The image on twitter is only 135kb, so 1080p sharing seems likely. Still, 662kb for a 1080p screenshot is a bit on the low side.

Would you have to be on the persons friends list to join their game or as long as the room is open anybody who decides to view the stream can immediately jump in? Just wondering because that could get annoying if you were waiting for a friend and randoms filled up the remaining slots.

From what I can see this would be even better for themes because the icons are at the bottom and full contents of each icon does not show up until you choose a particular icon.

That might be why the options icon appears in the Share menu UI.

My guess would be the library view falls under the store icon in the top bar.

Still not a fan of the look of the XMB, but it looks fast which is the priority, so I'm happy enough with it.

FWIW, the E3 video had a blurb that said "Open Session" under Party Status. You can probably toggle it to private if you don't want randoms taking up slots.

Completely agree, the UI is one of the worst things about the Vita. I get that they wanted a touch-focused UI but they could have done it better than that. A refresh to bring it in line with the PS4 would be awesome.

So will matchmaking be handled in the UI instead of in each individual game? Or is this only for private party matches?

I never understood the whole dislike for the XMB, it did everything i wanted from it and its simplicity was much better for me in comparison to the cluttered Xbox UI, i do not know how i feel about this new UI, looks too much like Windows 8. I prefered the simplicity of the previous one

There's no matchmaking here, he joined a specific game he was spectating.

Twich press release from yesterday mentioned that users will be able just to press Share button and broadcast their games. Its OS level service it seems.

[oh and Twich does not require PS+ on PS4, but it requires Gold for Xbone]

I watched it minimized due to technical problems I had when viewing on the TV, and didn't maximize until later due to this so I had completely missed the fact that it was a stream of a game which he later joined. Holy shit that is snappy.

The job they've done on this is sooooo much better than the Vita, or any UI I've ever seen from Sony before, it's really impressive, great combination of being more visually engaging while still appearing simple and straight forward.


I really hope the 6 seconds to game thing is at least nearly what we'll see in real life, that's the kind of thing that gets me excited to get a next gen console, I'm up for the 'same old games' if I'm doing a lot more playing and a lot less waiting around in lobbies.

I am really sceptical of that. Maybe if the PS4 had an SSD drive, but even then 6 seconds seems too good to be true.

I'm thinking they probably had Killzone already booted but suspended? That way they could load the map really fast.

Otherwise, I would have definitely expected load-times to be a little longer. Even if the harddrive was a good performer (say about 100MB/s), then loading 3GB still takes 30 seconds.

I'm thinking there might be some prefetch at boot, like it loads part of your last played game into RAM or something at start-up to make it that quick, or starts loading it once you're hovering over it or something like that. modern OS's have used prefetch quite well, so it's not a stretch to imagine it being used on PS4.

This is my biggest issue with things like this and E3. They go to the trouble and expense of live streaming the thing, then whenever
a game's shown they spend the time showing sweeping vistas of blackness in the venue.

Friggin numpties, drives me up the wall.
