With the PS5 set to be released in less than a month, Sony has finally revealed the PS5 UI (user interface)! In addition to its appearance, we also get a look at some of its new features, too. Check out the 11-minute special State of Play episode featuring the Sony’s OS and more.
According to Sony, the new UI introduces several new features to make the gaming experience more “fun, engaging, personalized and social,”
Here’s a look at the Control Center which players can bring up by pressing the PlayStation button on the DualSense controller.
We’ve also added a new feature called Activities, designed to bring you closer to the key elements of gameplay. Activities are displayed via on-screen cards in the Control Center, which enables you to discover new gameplay opportunities, go back to things you missed, jump directly into levels or challenges you want to play, and much more. Some Activity cards can be put in picture-in-picture mode, so you can view them without having to leave the game.
Navigating the interface, switching between games, and hopping into online matches occurs quickly, as we rebuilt the entire software stack from the console to the network to bring you a truly next-generation experience. We believe the less time you spend waiting to interact with the system, the more time you will have to spend playing games.
Note that Sony says that the video and images are from a “pre-production environment,” so don’t be surprised to see changes from it to the final version (if any).
In other PlayStation news, Sony launched a Library section on the PlayStation website, and this is what it does.
