    While it's getting a lot of attention, I just couldn't give a shit about the UI. It seems to be a constant fight between the Microsoft and Sony camps, but i busy don't get it. If I can launch a game, the rest is just BS I don't care about.

    Honestly, this old fart would be happy with a plain text list of games to select from if it meant the console booted 10 seconds quicker.

    The Xbox one UI is garbage I hate it.
    I’m happy with the PS4 so if they just make it look cleaner and more responsive thanks to the SSD then I’m happy.

    Finding a way to install a game and then just play it or update it on the xbox one is like navigating uncharted neurological pathways in the brain.

    Sure, finding the store page, and featured crap you don't give a shit about is easy.. but for the actual games you own and the one you want to play.. WHY THE FUCK IS IT SO GOD DAMN HARD.
    If consoles insist on having menus, the 360 nailed it with the blade system, and sony nailed it with the XMB on PSP (which then got copied to all their other systems)...

    Oh a bunch of icons, which I can then go into the settings of.. SWEET!

    Problem with the XBO AND PS4 is it's like they had a system in place, and then kept adding shit on top of it..
    Why do I need a god damn overlay to access features that used to be a single click away?

    I can't remember the xbox when i had it but PS4 is definitely easy. I don't like the Switch's though. Too many games and you gotta dick around too much imo, i like folders!

    PS4 is perfectly fine imo but could be a bit more responsive.
    Xbox one totally baffles me as to how they thought this was a great idea.

    i prefer the earlier PS4 XMB now i have that forced "Video" folder i don't want. You used to be able to just pop any media app in the XMB now you have to go into that advertising folder.

    XB1, yah fuck that noise.

    And I now think the main unit will be two-tone as well.

    Weird one, a Crytek dev came out and said PS5 "easier to develop for" then quickly walked it back!?

    yeah the controller is very much closer to the xbox this time round.

    dunno if i like it but am sure it will be fine.

    Its definitely different. Aesthetics are not nice to me. But the new rumble is nice.

    Closer to xbox is better. Means more controller familiarity when swapping between consoles. I always found the DS4 felt small in my hands but thats cos im primarily xbox controller user.

    Very ugly imo. Hopefully they provide an all black version.

    Given that you can get every colour under the sun in every previous Sony console, I don't think colour will be the problem you need to worry about.

    i think he's referring to it as the pack in controller??

    that said, my white xb1 controller is fine but i don't prefer white stuff. unless it's the Dreamcast, which is superior to all other pretenders.

    I'm placing my bets here because literally only a handful of people seem to be saying / guessing this right now...

    I'm betting the face buttons and d-pad are backlit, probably RGB, and probably addressable by the system so games can do funky things like flash certain buttons (think combos, or for learning a new control scheme) or change their colour for context like health.

    PS4 controller is RGB for it's light and editable via Steam when used on PC so i think you're dead on the money that they'll keep some lighting even if it's just to denote player# again
