Tuesday, 23rd July 2013 20:21 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Sony has released images of PS4′s UI as it’s announced the system has passed FCC certification in the US. The FCC report notes the weight, size and the console’s maximum clock frequency of 2.75GHz. The dev kit was approved by the government body last week. The UI shots are posted over on Gematsu.

    Alot of social crap in there. People seems to have forgot that PS4 will encourage users to use their Facebook info to work with their PSN ID, and Facebook is all over PRISM aswell.

    Thank god it’s supposedly possible to opt out.

    Hope it’s completely customizable.

    Edit : @5 The MS tiles aren’t bad on the phone and computer, just on Xbox.

    No that was a misreading of the FCC filing.
    “Operating temperature” != “what temp the console runs at”.
    Operating temp is the ambient temperature the console requires to run.

    @2 What you see there is not Facebook, but news feed from other people you have on PSN.

    @5: 1) It looks like it still operates largely by a scrolling top bar, then when you enter into what you want, that’s where you get tiles. 2) It depends on where it appears; having tiles on a console is different from having them on a PC, in the same fashion that having Windows 7 as the portal to run everything on a console would have been terrible.

    For the record, I loathed the PSN store redesign that took place last Fall. All the changes made with it were stupid, a lot of substance lost for the sake of flashiness that nobody cares about.

    But i liked the XMB. It already pisses my off they shoved that shitty smarties interface down our throat on the Vita.

    Looks like a lot of wasted space & pointless social features.

    Updates on who beat what boss and the ability to give that a thumbs up? Really? It’s like a spoiler slide show.

    Though honestly, if you can customize it to just show the actual store items then that’s fine. As long as I can find what I’m looking for, I don’t much care what it looks like.

    Simplistic is good though. Look there is a big list of my games grouped how I want them. Look how simple it is to get to them.

    Both current interfaces are slow in there own ways, and a much missed point about what the new ones are bringing is a slick and quick interface. Phones and tablets have set a standard which X1 and PS4 need to meet.
