26w ago - Today PlayStation 4 industry insider Tidux [Register or Login to view links] that a PS4 Firmware update is incoming which reportedly will improve the User Interface with details below.

To quote: Well known industry insider, Tidux has teased some interesting update coming to PlayStation 4 in few days time. Via Twitter, Tidux hinted a brand new firmware for PlayStation 4 and also revealed some around Sony are indeed working on User Interface improvement for PlayStation 4.

When Tidux was asked, whether or not Sony's Tech support working on fan requested User Interface improvement? He replied: "Over 100 people working on the UI"

He later on hinted new PlayStation 4 firmware in testing phase: "All this testing is blowing my mind! #welcometothefuture #jit9 #fw* #PS4"

Tidux has a pretty solid track record of leaking information way before its official announcement, but still we advice our readers to wait for some official word from Sony on PS4 User Interface improvement and new firmware.


 

Video: PS4 User Interface Leak (Early PlayStation 4 Test Kit Build)

71w ago - Today MoejoeWins shared a video on YouTube of a PS4 User Interface leak (early PlayStation 4 Test Kit build) with some preliminary details below.

To quote: An early look at the PS4 UI, which was accidentally shown during a Blacklight: Retribution demo earlier today on a test kit.

This layout may or may not be used in the retail version but we do get to hear some sound effects and see animations that could appear in the finished product. He does say that this is a very early build (though he may have been referencing the game) and that this was one of the first test kits to go out.

Some interesting tidbits/speculation based off of what's shown:

  • The PS4 can recover from a game crash without locking up.
  • Games are considered applications and can apparently run alongside other applications (multi-tasking).
  • If you're connected to the internet, application information is automatically updated in the dynamic menu.
  • Note sure about this: The built-in DVR can automatically start up when you start a game? Or maybe when you turn it on it stays on? Maybe it was being used for this livestream? (in which case this is pretty damn good quality).

New Sony PS4 / PlayStation 4 User Interface Screenshots Surface

250°
73w ago - Today Sony has released some new PS4 (GUI) screenshots of the PlayStation 4's user interface, which include user profiles, the new PlayStation Store, inbox messaging and video sharing.

Below are the details from DigitalSpy.com (linked above), to quote: "The FCC's consumer arm revealed several technical details about the system during its extensive testing, confirming a maximum clock efficiency of 2.75GHz.

The images were issued to coincide with the announcement that the console has passed FCC certification in the US.

It was also revealed that the PS4 will weigh in at 2.8kg - making it considerably lighter than the original PS3 at 5kg, but heavier than the latest 2.1kg slimline models.

Sony's new console will run at a cooler temperature than its predecessor, making it less likely to overheat. The hardware's ideal operating temperature is between 5 and 35 degrees Celsius, compared to the PS3's average of between 45 and 55.

The PS4 will launch this holiday for $399 in North America and £349 in the UK. The console will launch alongside titles including Killzone: Shadow Fall, Drive Club and Knack."
