A new report just came in from Matt MacLaurin, VP of UX Design at PlayStation, which suggests that Sony will be revealing the brand-new user interface of PlayStation 5 console. We’ve already seen the boot-up screen of PS5 as it was teased during the reveal event if you paid attention.
PlayStation User Interface Reveal Coming Soon
According to Matt MacLaurin’s comments on LinkedIn, the PS5 UI is a complete 100% overhaul over the current PlayStation 4 UI which is a really good thing. “A little more pregmative, but a 100% overhaul of PS4 UI and some very different new concepts.”
“Primary focus was the OS UI. Hasn’t been shown yet. Largely cleaning up core functionality, but some key new bets that you’ll see soon,” MacLaurin said. “As it’s UI it’s practical first, but it’s a whole new visual language and a complete rearchitecting of the user interface.”
“While we are obsessed with the function, very few pixels left from PS4 gen. Most important experience goals measured in milliseconds across the entire UI.”
