Sony PS4 XMB interface hints from 2013 Bravia TV

By Posted 5 Feb 2013, 17:23

We are just days away from a potential unveiling of the next generation Sony PlayStation 4 console. It has been a long journey up until this point and when February 20 arrives, we could be talking about a new gaming console that has significantly more power and graphics capability than the PS3.

Earlier this week, we talked about the possibility of the next-gen system featuring hyper-realistic graphics, after industry analyst Michael Pachter revealed that he was ’100% certain’ of Sony revealing the console on the 20th and that it would come with hyper-realistic graphics and a eye raising frames per second of up to 240FPS.

Now we have an interesting video for you to take a look at, although it’s not necessarily linked to the upcoming PS4. The clip you’ll see below gives you a look at Sony’s new XMB interface that they’ll be using on all new 2013 Bravia television sets. You can see that the interface is very smooth, although it has to be said that it is a little simple and not particularly eye-catching at the same time.

The video provided by Sony Fanatic suggests that this new interface format could find its way onto the PS4 in some iteration or another, but we actually hope we see something that’s a lot more visually impressive. The PS Vita interface is a good way to start – an expansion on that wouldn’t be a bad look in our eyes, what would you think?

You can see integrated application support for the likes of YouTube and Skype, two services that should certainly be available on the PS4 at launch. Take a look at the short clip below and let us know if you wouldn’t mind seeing something similar for the PS4 interface.

Do you have any other better ideas on top of the style used below?
