    A couple of big changes coming with Firmware 4.00, including new UI and the ability to create and manage folders for your library.

    Seems like it's a big focus on functionality.

    Great news, the current UI is a bit of a cluster**** IMO

    I love the UI. Hope it doesn't change too much. Sure as shit hope they aren't trying to make it like the Xbox cluster****.

    I agree it could be a bit cleaner/easier to navigate around.

    Folders are a nice idea, but I mostly like the UI as it is.

    Xbox one is too clunky for its own good, even if they improved it with the last update.

    Only thing that annoys me is the library. Once I'm done with a game I generally uninstall it but there are a few I keep installed as I go back to from time to time with friends, GTA, FIFA, Destiny, and if it has been too long they fall off the dashboard and the library is a bit of a mess since it's everything I've ever played including apps, demos and betas, DLC to games I've had on disc etc. And games that aren't on the dashboard don't seem to auto update if there is a patch.

    Besides from that I like the simplicity of the UI.

    There's a setting than turns off the limit on the dashboard so everything in your library that is currently installed will be displayed. Helps to remind me just how bad my backlog is!

    I keep having to go into the library to manually download the updates for my backlist that slid off of the main page.

    Gives me a little bit of hope that I'll play them one day.

    First review is out, from me.

    Got a 10% off PS Store voucher in my email this morning to add to the current Winter Sale/PS Plus discounts, thought I'd be a grown up and get myself something deeper than FIFA and Guitar Hero which are my current plays and ending up buying Lego Avengers for $40.

    Sony are falling behind in almost every aspect of console gaming now. If both sides bring in iteration, losing the user base now could mean they lose them for good. They need to get their shit together quickly.

    How are Sony falling behind if they are still well in front?

    For starters the subscription service has been hopeless and represented poor value for money for months and months, while Games with Gold continues to go from strength to strength and offer appealing titles. Microsoft have moved heaven and earth to bring in backwards compatibility and the list of available games grows regularly (over 200 now I think?), while Sony maintains it's impossible and instead pushes their expensive subscription service that isn't even out in most countries, and considers charging $30+ for a digital, upscaled PS2 game the solution. Their updates offer approximately one useful feature per year and we still don't have the simplest of features. Oh, but we can schedule events on a calendar, it's ok. Microsoft brings out monthly updates that release features and fixes that genuinely get the user base excited. Sony have struggled with cheaply made accessories since the console's launch and, looking at the Slim, it doesn't seem like that's about to change. The store is almost impossible to navigate due to lag and a complete failure in user friendliness; the console offers no integration of media; the "social" side pushed by Sony has been a monumental flop...the Xbox rightly started miles behind because of a widely unpopular feature, poor customer service on Microsoft's part and clever marketing on Sony's, but since then Microsoft has done absolutely everything to close the gap while Sony have become complacent at the big lead.

    I say this as somebody who has only ever owned Sony and Nintendo consoles, by the way. I have no reason to be biased towards Microsoft.


    They're falling behind in aspects of gaming and customer service. If they don't rectify it quickly it will begin to show up in sales and activity.
