The Daily Moot: PlayStation 5 UI RevealedNews Picks
1. PS5 UI Revealed
The user interface for the PlayStation 5 has been revealed. With their latest “First Look” video, Sony provides an in-depth breakdown of the upcoming console’s new user experience, and it’s significantly different from the PlayStation 4. The home layout is broken down into various “cards” which act as portals to things like news, games, and your recent recordings and screenshots. In regards to games, the cards provide a surprising amount of information about your progress, including your current objectives and a personalized estimation of how long it will likely take you to complete them. The video itself is a bit lengthy at 11 minutes long, but it’s definitely worth watching if you’re planning on picking up a PlayStation 5 once it launches on November 12. You can check out the video below.
2. Cyberpunk Vehicles CD Projekt Red has unveiled several of Cyberpunk 2077’s vehicles via the new “Rides of the Dark Future” trailer.
