Sony sent out a few new screenshots of the PlayStation 4’s user interface today, further showing how much different the new PlayStation looks from the old one. It’s very clear that Sony is placing a primary interest on the social aspects of gaming, trying to convince users to stream their gameplay as they play it, and let friends and strangers alike take a look at what’s going on.
The new screens show some of what we already knew – that there’s going to be a revamped user / profile page, game downloads, etc. Some of the shots show enticingly new ideas, however, like this smartphone mockup showing how a user on the go might tune in to an exciting game being played – right on his iPhone or Android smartphone.
Another screenshot shows how the PS4 will let users both record and edit videos of gameplay, allowing you to create walkthroughs or exciting compilations, all from the console itself.
Sony will likely be dropping more hints and glances at just what the PlayStation 4 will do up through E3 in June, so stay tuned; we’ll bring you coverage as we see it.
