It’s PS4 launch day and Sony just posted its finalized, 100% complete list of games you’ll be able to purchase/pick-up for your brand new system today. There’s 23 in total and if you want to know which of them is free, then check out this list here (hint: there’s at least nine free games coming to the PS4 in 2013).
Finally, Sony has also posted an official “guided tour” video that takes you through all the big features of the Playstation 4’s new user interface. You can watch it below.

If you’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of your PS4 today, or planning on trying to walk in and grab one off the shelf, then we suggest taking a look at this video walk-through of the Playstation 4 UI first.
It’s easily the most comprehensive and high quality footage we’ve seen to date and shows off all the functions you should know about – friends lists, the Playstation Store, and how to use the DVR (digital video recorder), Twitch, Facebook and other apps.
We think that the new Playstation UI looks extremely easy to use and very well-layed out (KISS – keep it simple, stupid!), and looks to be a major improvement on the current offering from the PS3. As with all things though, we won’t be able to say for sure until Cheats.co’s own PS4 unit arrives – hopefully soon!Tags: dashboard, ps4, ui, video, walkthrough

Sony recently held a pre-launch event for the Playstation 4 in New York and finally unveiled the PS4 UI to the public, properly. A lot of new information has since come out and we’ve compiled a handy cheat/tip sheet that tells you all the cool stuff and new features you can expect from the Playstation 4 user interface. We also have a few images too. Enjoy!

Sony has just released some brand new high definition images of the user interface for the Playstation 4 console itself as well as its complementary mobile (smartphone and tablet) apps.
As you can see there are various pages/functions shown including:
We think it’s looking pretty slick and should be a massive improvement over the current PS3 user interface. In fact let’s be honest – what wouldn’t!?Tags: console, mobile, ps4, ui, user interface

Who remembers the blades on the Xbox 360, or even the original green Xbox dashboard? In case you can’t, here’s a cool little image that should jog your memory.
Yup, the blades were cool! Thanks to KillerByte2 of Reddit for the memories.Tags: dash, dashboard, ui, xbox, xbox 360, xbox one

One of the first leaks of a working “out in the wild” Xbox One console has come out with YouTube user Jackson Carter uploading the video you can see below.
In the two minute clip Carter focuses mainly on the Xbox One’s dashboard/user interface and also gives us a quick rundown through the hardware (looks pretty legit to us).
With the original video being pulled from YouTube (and the one above uploaded in it’s place) you’d have to think this means it must be the real deal…Tags: dashboard, leak, ui, video, xbox one

We hope you’re a fan of the new-ish Windows 8 UI (Metro) because as you’ll see from these brand new Xbox One user interface screenshots, the look is consistent.
Microsoft released the images following their Gamescom press conference and in them you can see how multitasking will work (playing Forza and changing your music) as well as game invite/update notifications (while watching a movie) and other features.
What do you think of the look?Tags: dashboard, interface, ui, xbox one

The user interface, more commonly known as a dashboard these days, for the Playstation 4 has not yet been revealed. However this leaked clip should give us some idea of what it could look like when Sony finally decide to do the big unveiling.
The footage comes courtesy of a very early PS4 testing kit (hence the crash which actually takes us back to the dashboard, enabling us to see it, in the first place).
We thought that the dashboard sounds were pretty much perfect (atmospheric, if you will) although there will likely be an option to turn them off if you want, just like with the PS3. The UI also looked very quick which will make a nice change from what we currently have with the Playstation 3.
What makes a good dashboard in your eyes?Tags: clip, dashboard, leak, playstation, ui, video

Wanna know what one of the greatest things about Xbox One is? It’s the Kinect 2.0. If you already believe that, keep reading. If you need convincing, keep reading anyway because this article will tell you about some of the things you should be excited about.
Kinect for Xbox One offers many things you may not have even thought possible and it can be used in all sorts of ways in conjunction with the console – whether it be in-game, when you’re simply browsing the UI or otherwise.
For now, most developers are using Kinect to introduce subtle new ways to control what is happening in Xbox One games. Some examples are as follows:
At E3 there was a first person shooter called “Reflex” that was made specially in-house to show how the Kinect 2.0 can be utilized. Some examples are:
The thing is, examples like those above are only going to become more numerous, more immersive and better over time as game developers learn what the Kinect 2.0 is capable of and how they can make better use of it in games. If some of the scenarios above have you excited now, imagine what’s going to be coming out a year or so after the Xbox One has been released!

Sony has just released some new images showing off the Playstation 4 system as well as the user interface.
As you can see, the PS4 UI features much better multitasking support that its predecessor, the Playstation 3, and there will also be a new mobile app that lets you view game details, check out your profile and those of your friends, view Trophies and of course message people (Android app pics shown).
One thing we noticed in the “PS4 package” image is the tablet, specifically the inclusion of the word “Start” below the Knack game image. Does this mean gameplay can be streamed to tablets (and presumably controlled with the DualShock 4)?
Otherwise it’s nice to see more of the direction Sony are taking with the PS4 UI… looks good to us!Tags: images, mobile, pictures, system, ui
