Anyone else agree that Sony needs to change the look and feel of their console's interface?
No. The PS3 interface works and thats what we need. Unless SONY is 9000% sure that the new interface will work as or better than the XMB then we don't need it. The last thing we need is a PSN-store-app bugged-like PS3 interface. Furthermore, the PS4 is around the corner. We need SONY to be all hands on the PS4 and really polish it with luxury of details. I care more about that than a new PS3 interface.
It's obviously not as fancy as the 360 dashboard and when i first started using the xmb i was confused on how to navigate it, but i was confused on the 360 dashboard as well.
but if you read up on the new ps4 you'll see tons of reasons why it'll be better than the new xbox. (mainly info/hardware specs leaked from developers on both sides.
Now that it's pretty much a guarntee that ps4 will impove the interface and add cross platform party/private chat this ps4 is gonna be a monster with it's GDDR5 8GB RAM OMG!!
i hope the PS3 will get a PS4 app which enables the user to access some features of the PS4 (social media and other stuffs).
Thats why you get a PS4....
the XMB is awesome. And it doesnt block visibility to the background image. When i buy a dynamic theme i expect nothing to obsctuct my vision. XMB does it right. Hopefully SONY reconsider the option to have it on PS4 or allow it as a second option for people who wants to switch back to it. More power to Sony for adding extra customization, and more power to us for being able to choose what we want.
