Looks more impressive than PS4’s UI.

There's a lot of interesting features there (progress tracker, the PS5 estimating how long it's going to take to complete a level or goal, walkthrough guides and hints) but how many third parties are going to implement them (or is that why they're on PS Plus, as a 'bung' to pay developers with)?

No quick resume but a nice UI none the less.

Didn't they show quick resume in that vid?

The very first thing was a resumed game. They didn't show multiple games being resumed.

Where are the trophies though? Didn’t see that anywhere


My guess is that'll be located under the avatar menu. He also said there was more to show so maybe it'll be shown in the coming weeks?

You see it in the Allstars section, but not the full trophy lists etc.

That and I couldn't pass up on the 55" being so cheap. Its HDR peak brightness isn't as good as the Q90 Samsung, but I play in a mostly dark room so hopefully the CX will still blow me away. The £100 Switch + Animal Crossing and Minecraft sealed the deal. (Currys offer. Try another browser if it won't let you add the bundle.)

Now I just need a next gen console :slol:


Don’t worry about the brightness. Sometimes, after a Spider-Man session, I get the same sensation as when you go inside after being out in blazing sunshine.

There wasn't anything about Sackboy being closed when they started Destruction All-Stars so I guess multiple suspended games are there going by that.

Looks alright. The help video would be useful but depends how its supported. Not much use to me but the friend sharing their screen was nice. Didn't seem to be quick resume across multiple games shown which is a shame. The rest I don't think I'd use.

One of the biggest issues that needed fixing was cumbersome, lagging menus, which is something that seems to plague the vast majority of TV-based operating systems. The PS3 PS Store is now a nightmare, but the speed of the XMB is still hard to beat.

If you're in a game and pick another game on current gen console it automatically closes it and goes to the game you picked?

There 100% is. Notice that booting up Destruction All-Stars didn't drop a prompt saying Sackboy would close (PS4 always does that)

Also, the icon at the bottom of the UI:

and when putting the console into rest mode:

Personally, I was a bit worried when the control centre was shown, it looks big and chunky, with massive image panels and very XBOX-y (which i'm not personally a fan of). But when it was shown that's just the control/activity centre, and the home screen was shown- I was quite pleased.

Big positives for me:
- Parties being more than voice chat
- Game help
- Picture in picture screen share
- Integrated PSN store
- Trophy progress counters/activities related to trophies
- Speed of joining a MP game, whilst already being active in another (confirmed 8 seconds from cold boot to lobby)

I'm looking forward to seeing the rest!

Dunno about current Xbox, but PS4 warns you that the current game will close when you try to start another one and you get a cancel or okay prompt.

EDIT: and yeah, see MrKirov's post

Xbox goes straight into next game, just like that PS5 UI vid.

Can you share play online multiplayer? If so that picture-in-picture could be plenty abusable in e.g. R6 Siege for having a live feed from your friend's screen.

Those top and bottom icons are going to be a bit small for those playing on a smaller TV, I'd imagine - sometimes forget not everyone is rocking 55" or more.

Yeah, I think that’s going to be an issue. Xbox One can display a progress bar/percentage for certain achievements, but the majority of developers don’t bother to use the feature. It’s a real shame, and I can see it being the same with this.
