Several new PS5 UI videos have gone online giving us a better look at the actual sound design of the console’s menu systems.
Below is a video from the Japanese publication 4Gamer. Although the actual content of the video is very similar to what Sony presented earlier this week, there is no commentary on the video so we can clearly hear the background music from the PS5 menus.
The entire user interface definitely sounds a lot crisper and clearer than the PS4’s current menu. This is especially evident when the user navigates directly over it on the PS5’s text keyboard, where you can hear some really short, sharp bursts of sound with each movement of the cursor.
Yesterday, Sony unveiled the PS5’s user interface in surprising condition for the first time. Many new, potentially groundbreaking, details have been revealed, including a guide and notice system, key changes in how the parties work, and more.
A key feature of the redesigned UI system is guidance developers can implement to help players if they get stuck on parts of the game. Developers can customize helpful footage to guide players through specific parts of their games. We think this is a win-win deal for PS gamers.
