So Sony just released this it shows a good 3 minutes of use showing a facebook style wall setup for the PS4 interface along with how video shares will work and the instant game on and off features.

So she had to ask him is he is playing Knack. Right now I can see what games my friends are playing. Never mind I see she is blond.

I didn't see any drug paraphernalia in that garage hovel. This is not accurate representation of Core™ gaming audience. D;

Dude probably should have redone his reaction to her platinum trophy.

"Naah sayah"

EDIT: Okay, this guy's facial movements are weirding me out. It's like his muscles don't work!

The pseudo flirting going on at the back end of that video is cracking me the fuck up.

That doesn't look like young Jim Carrey to me! He's cleverly trying to hide his hipster-ism behind a curtain of deceit!

That looks... awful. All of you saying differently, I don't know how to reason with.

Way too much navigation on a clusterfuck of information. Not that it's not readable, but it just doesn't looks clean, nor elegant.

That said, the features it presents, at least, are intriguing. A remote download queue is something I use all of the time with my 360, and the layers of chat seem potentially interesting. Really don't like the "social" vibe to it, though. It just feels really fake, like all of the actual social media sites.

I'm going to do that to friends now.

"Dude, I'm playing Animal Crossing and I need your help. Get in here!"

"Hmm, what? I don't own a 3DS..."

"Shut-up and get one! We need to catch dorado for Paula! Quick!"

I've already seen this.

I would rather just see someone walk us through the UI. Which sounds far less exciting (like this is "exciting" or "interesting") but it would be far more informative.

Interface seems neat for the most part, as well as the instant switching and watching videos. But I think the whole video was just about how Will Walker wants to get it in with Sarah Greene. Just saying.

That UI is still the same cluster fuck it was in the last thread about this video, and that dude still looks like he lives in the shed where I keep my lawnmower.

He's in his late twenties and not morbidly obese. So pretentious.

The criteria for a person to be considered a hipster has been expanding over the past couple of years- I'm pretty sure if you're not a fatass, you're a hipster.

For once, being fat is a good thing for me.

As long as they're no longer using the XMB, I would have praised it. I hope we can still customize this interface because sometimes I play in the dark and that bright ass blue would be really harsh on my eyes. Also why the hell is dude living in the garage? Sony you got some 'xplaining to do.
