Nice. Does anyone know if my profile, trophies, etc. will carry over? Can't remember if I've read about that yet.

Isn't that the interface for a tablet or Android based phone? Cauz there is an battery icon in the upper right corner ^^

Now that is some bad acting.

it's the phone app. kinda like the xbox app on windows phones.

EDIT : and the battery sign on the other images are controler battery life. just like the XMB.

I would love when he said "Will you join my clan?" and she says "Nope" it just ended there. Would be hilarious.

If there's one thing that's really putting me off the PS4, it's Sony relentless push on the sharing and social stuff. That and their use of obnoxious people in their ads.

As for the UX, it's uninspired and dull, and shows a lack of design and vision. For all it's faults, and they are numerous, Xbox One's Metro UI is far superior as a statement of design.

Man, this looks really great! Definitely worth the price of admission (aka Playstation Plus membership). I predict Sony will see some PS2 type sales figures with the PS4. Watch.
Commented on 2013-06-18 19:43:51
Looks great. The problem is will i be able to switch back from Xbox 360 controler to psx`s ?? :( The analogs position suck big time in psx.

xbox360 interface is so close to this one.
idk for what reason sony won E3!!!!!!!!!
used games? after the conference they declared that its totally up to devs to allow the gamers to use their product as pre-owned one or not
the price? 400usd + 60 usd = 460usd its 40 usd cheaper than xboxone n ps eye is nowhere near kinect, ok u say u don buy pseye? so Ustream is not for u therefore when u buy ps+(which u MUST for multiplayer gaming) u actully lost a possiblity to use one of the features of ur membership
btw psn is nowhere near xboxlive with 300,000 servers n we all know it
OPEN ur eyes n see the truth not the ads or shallow comments
Commented on 2013-06-18 20:22:26
wow DopeBoy, you are really trying hard. why are u adding $60 to the price of the ps4 exactly? lol... jeeeeeeeez

PS eye being optional is a GOOD thing in my book. Fuck the kinect. Don't want it, if it saves me a hundred wingwangs, that's awesome. As for the UI? Big whoop, so long as it works. And how is PS+ bum deal when MS has had the same thing going for the last 8 years? Also the always on thing is the big thing, i think. Will it affect me if a choose to get the Xbone? Probably not. Does that mean i like the idea? Not really. MS hasn't really shown me that any of their services and the extra one hundred bucks are going to give me anything. I don't give a flying fuck about tv, and i don't particularly want to talk to my xbox to bing shit while i'm playing, and xbox glass can suck a fat one. It looks utterly stupid.

MS has a lot to make up for in terms of customer relations. I don't think that the hardware or that their ideas are by necessity bad, they've just done a SHIT job of conveying what they are trying to do to the public.

Me thinks you are a bit of a MS fanboy.

I generally agree, except with your last statement..

I'd prefer this to what I've seen of the Xbox One UI look, any day. I find the Metro UI kind of hideous on anything other than a phone.

I do agree that this Playstation 4 UI is too "thin" & sterile, but I don't find it hideous.
Commented on 2013-06-18 21:08:09
Yeah, and Metro now blocks 85% of your screen, making wallpapers totally pointless on the 360 and obviously also on the ONE. Not to mention MS still sell themes...for what, lol. Not seing them? Anyways, asthetics aside, I hate what the 360s dashboard became. A wall full of advertisements, with one UI update after another.

Offtopic: I'm (still) a loyal 8 years Gold XBL member, but after seeing what MS has NOT to offer for XBL gamers(! - not speaking from the actual games), I will get a PS4 now. Cheaper price. Especially because I don't want that Kinect...EVER in my house nor am I a fan of the 24h online services.
MS handles Kinect as if it is the most normal thing in the world. They blamed the players becasue most Kinect games failed and the tech hardly works. Then sorry, mS, is that a reason now to force this "tech" to the customer? Then do better Kinect games! And make that thing work, btw!

Sorry, I love my 360, one of the best gaming consoles ever made. But I'm not liking MS and their politics with the ONE.

Looks great and who cares if it's bad acting, i don't think i can remember one advert from any company that doesn't ooze cheese.

@Dopeboy Terrible post, you can't spell and the way you are talking is making you out to be an XBOX fanboy.

Probably tax? I don't know exactly what it comes out to, but tax is pretty heavy on a $400 item.
Dude was being an idiot, and a homophobe, but his perspective is fair. It sucks that people are just going to see him and see a fanboy, even though he has every fucking right to like the Xbone. Just like everyone sees this, and because it's sony, they think it looks great.
GO ahead and compare this to the Xbone interface. Looks pretty similar, but people say the Xbone interface is a piece of shit and this is great. Personally, I think they both look really sharp and most importantly, functional.
