Playstation 5 UI video reveals new features

In the video, Sony emphasized on demonstrating the official user interface of PS5 that will be used to kick start the games. The Playstation 5 UI video also shows that the interface can be used to chat with friends and do so much more.

The new UX for Playstation 5 UI as shown in the video reveals several new features that are designed to make the gaming experiences much more enjoyable, engaging, personalized and social in nature. One of the most interesting features in the new Playstation 5 is a new Control Center. This feature provides immediate access to almost everything you need ranging from the system at a single press of the PlayStation button on the DualSense wireless controller. The players will be able to do all this without leaving the game.

The Playstation 5 UI also has a new feature called Activities. “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,” Nishino explained in a post.

PS5 features a highly interactive user interface

Probably the handiest feature of Playstation 5 UI is that some activity cards can now be placed in a picture-in-picture mode. This will allow the player to view them without the need to leave the game. This new feature also makes it easier to navigate the interface, switching between different games of your choice, and hopping into online matches much more quickly than before.

The developers have rebuilt the entire software from scratch in order to give players a truly next-generation experience. The developers believe that the less time players spend waiting to interact with the system, the more enjoyable the entire gaming experience.

The Playstation 5 will be officially released on November 12th in the U.S., Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. The console will launch in Europe, the Middle East, South America, Asia and South Africa a few days later on, November 19th. Fans around the globe are eagerly waiting to get their hands on the all-new gaming experience. It seems that the new PlayStation will be worth the wait.

The new PS5 UI and interactive features are listed in detail on the official PS Blog, which includes a video providing a first look at the interface of the experience.
