I don't give a shit what it looks like but it needs to be snappy. The PS4 was snappy when it first came out but update after update, it's now sluggish on the Pro even.

PS4 Pro UI is slow and sluggish. I hope they have better UI this time around. Settings menu needs to be better organized too.

I like Sony's current UI way better than Xbox's UI. Of course this doesn't mean it's perfect (especially when it starts to lag when you have a game turned on), but it's much more enjoyable to use.

Sorry, after 7 years, you can’t offer me something that is (far) uglier than what we currently have. I’ll not accept it. It also screams last gen, not next one. Yea, you can call me superficial but I just don’t like ugly stuff.


Go where there's beauty OP and bask in it's glory.....As for me I will go where the best games are......I certainly don't intend to marry the PS5's UI, so I'll be fine........I'd rather a sleek and fast OS with great and innovative features than a bloated, noisy and slower one, but to each their own...

I buy next generational consoles to play next-gen games. You buy next-consoles for their UI. Different strokes for different folks!

Imo as a next gen console gamer, you should look at Series X + GPU as your first choice. UI or not.

Wait, as in an Xbox Series X and a new PC GPU which will play the same games?

Do you always direct people to waste their money this way?

Well at least the PS3 UI was better than PS4's, so if the worst case scenario is XMB again, at least it's better than what we have now.

Behind you !
The picture quality isn't exactly representative of what it would look like on a 4K tv. Likewise, it's once again coming from a devkit and not a retail unit, so it might be completely different from the retail product. But yeah it's not exactly pretty as of now, and it could use a facelift before launch if it's indeed supposed to be the final look.

As long as the UI has a button on it to start my games then I'm happy. I'm not a fan of playing UI's, I'm a fan of playing games though.

Let's wait for something official though. Don't trust the internet.

well said .. don’t know why so serious about things like that and what makes me laugh is that he has second thoughts of buying a PS5 because of UI

The rounded icons containers look like something from a crappy 3rd-party theme.
Meh, I think it looks good that way. I can actually say I do find this believable in terms of design language.

I don't see how anyone can draw conclusions from those two screenshots.

Well, all i am interested in: Do they have a usuable browser this time? One that doesnt crash every 15 minutes because its
out of memory?I still wonder how Sony managed to fuck up something even the cheapest Chinaphone does better.

I'm a fan of the PS3/PS4 cross media bar UI. It's simple and easy to navigate but maybe I'm just overly familiar with it. I actively dislike the Xbox UI.

Only thing I need UI in my console to do is be functional and snappy, thats all I want.
Yes, thank you. If anything if it is as simple as those fakes I'd actually be happy that there aren't ads plastered everywhere taking 10+ seconds to load and slowing down the UI.

Good god how spoiled are gamers today. We didn't even have an UI for a good chunk of gaming history. Games were the sole reason to fire up a console.

OP, I hear you.

However, let's consider a few things before we rush to judgement -

1) This pics were literally taken on a cell phone from 2001. What the fuck, and I mean, really WTF. TV gootage from 1985 looks cleaner than this.

2) We haven't seen enough to judge. See above, but also let's wait for official confirmation that this is the UI before we freak out.

3) Even if this INCREDIBLY BLURRY AND SHITTY photo really is someone going through the PS5's UI, it doesn't mean that THIS is the UI we'll be experiencing at Day-1 users. This is potentially just basically bootable firmware loaded onto the chip so people can access the content therein -- for all we know there could be NDA's in place for them to now show this part of the experience because it's not finished. Which means that with a small tweak here and there before the final retail unit, we could be seeing something completely different.

I fixed my old ps4 recently that needed a conplete wipe and reinstall. I was blown away by how ugly and old it looked without a theme, games installed and online functionality. I coulda sworn I was booting up a ps3 sonI'd wait on this one, who knows what it'll look like an hour after some customization. It's the feature list that we need, if it's another set back like the ps4 launch over the ps3 where all the firmware updates and QoL stuff got set back, curse them then. I'd hope we have all ps4 features and they build on it from there, if simple things like folders and external USB HDD support gets wiped then that's when I have a problem.

That's an absurd reason to deny yourself a videogame console, it's a tiniest fraction of a fraction of the point of getting the thing

Lol at thinking this is the UI. Stop believing dodgy sources. Wait until it's revealed from someone who doesn't have a potato as a camera

Ugly console, ugly controller that has a bra, ugly user interface. Well at least they are consistent, I give 'em that!

Wasn't it rumoured that the Dev Kits were sent out with non representative OS because Sony were paranoid of the actual UI leaking? I'm sure that was mentioned months ago.

Either way I'd reserve judgment until the retail units are shown.

Regardless of these pictures being fake or not, I thought people bought consoles to play games, not just browse the UI.

I could get behind Sony’s UI if it was responsive and fast but it’s so minimalist yet still runs terrible.

I mean I am not saying Xbox UI runs well but it full of stuff on the screen and actually has a ton of cool features way beyond Sony’s. Almost all Sony products I have bought have crappy UI it’s like their signature move.

The vita and psp seemed to work pretty well if I remember correctly, but it’s probably just nostalgia it’s been so long since I fired one of them up.
The crap all over the Xbone ui is a joke.

I don't give a shit as long as it boots up games without taking forever and still has suspend/resume functionality.

You shouldn't care about an UI as long as the icon to launch a game doesn't require more than two button presses.
