Sony is finally ready to reveal the PlayStation 5 user interface, so you can see what’s in between games. The company has posted a first look at the PS5 experience that shows what’s ultimately an iteration on what you know from the PS4.
The home carousel came with tweaks for 4K, but there’s a new Control Center that provides quick access to many features which include help for the games you’re playing.
Games and apps in the Control Center and the home screen will have Activities, just like game milestones and opportunities displayed as cards.
Users will not only see their progress on levels and quests but will sometimes have the option of “spoiler-free” guides and hints if they have a PlayStation Plus membership. They can even display some cards in a picture-in-picture view to offer assistance while they play.
Messaging, screenshots and video are also faster, Sony said. You can use voice dictation for chat, and messages can even include spoiler warnings if you’re sharing an image that might ruin the game for a friend.
On the home screen, there’s an Explore section that provides a mix of stories from PlayStation, games and the community. Don’t count on seeing it right away, though, as Sony will be testing Explore in the US even as the system launches.
You may wonder if it was worth the wait, whatever, just know that there’re some definite upgrades in the PlayStation 5 UI, this isn’t a complete reinvention.
It’s mainly designed to take advantage of higher-resolution TVs and the speediness of the SSD-based storage. If nothing else, though, this will give you an idea of what to expect when you start your console for the first time.
