In a brief clip throughout the occasion, the corporate confirmed the brand new ‘Press the PS button’ immediate, together with recent animations and sounds. Later, in a LinkedIn thread, Sony’s VP of UX design Matt MacLaurin defined extra. In the thread, MacLaurin describes the brand new interface as a “100 percent overhaul of the PS4 UI and some very different new concepts.”
Not having seen any of the UI components of the PlayStation 5 aside from the transient teaser, I can’t say for certain that I’ll just like the PS5 UI. However, I do hope the UI is improved in significant methods. While I already just like the UI provided by the PS 4, there’s scope for enchancment there. So I hope Sony has labored on these minor, however annoying points of the UI.
MacLaurin explains “because it’s UI it’s sensible first, however it’s an entire new visible language and an entire rearchitecting of the person interface.” His LinkedIn thread additionally says that the brand new OS is “more subtle than flashy, but no pixel is untouched.” Those sound like reassuring phrases to me.
Either approach, we in all probability gained’t have to attend too lengthy for Sony to disclose the PlayStation 5 UI. MacLaurin says that the workforce will showcase the brand new OS quickly. Sony has been actual sluggish with PS5 updates, however hopefully the corporate’s reveals is not going to pace up.
