    • Ritsujun

      I wanna sit on his lap and call him 「Chichiuesama」。

    The UI looks good, love the theme change upon selection of a game. Background music isnt bad too

  • T_lowell

    Well…..that looked better than I thought it would.

    Games being the first thing you come to when you sign in is wonderful.

    • hush404

      Agree 100%. Was diff than I thought too and having games be the heavy focus is the right way to do it.

    Is this a different feed than the official Ustream? I couldn’t tell what was going on in that one because the director kept showing the crowd instead of the direct feed

  • DesmaX

    Oh, it does open a lot of space if you press up (apparently)

    Cool for those who want to put wallpapers/themes, or something

  • Pyrofrost

    I love the UI of the PS4

    • Zackasaur

      Yeah, it looks glorious!

    • HassanJamal

      Its a basically evolved and way improved version of XMB :D

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    I’m kinda disappointed in the PS4 UI.

    • Zackasaur

      … Really? How?

      • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

        It seems both consoles did away with customization like wallpapers and themes. I sure hope that won’t be the case. I’m more inclined to like the Xbone’s Windows 8-based dashboard.

    • Zancrow

      “Niku@bakayorusora”? xD

  • Elvick

    UI surprised me, and I like it a lot more now. I just hope they let us disable the sounds.

  • carrebeannut

    looks awesome, i love that joining system.

  • artemisthemp

    XMB and LiveArea – The perfect match :)
