A picture of what is claimed to be the first look at the PlayStation 5’s user interface has been posted on a well-known imageboard. The poster of the image states that they work at a game studio that is currently utilizing PS5 devkits. Comments in regard to the possible PS5 UI have focused on its similarity to the PS4’s revamped UI.

An image of what could be the PlayStation 5’s user interface has been uploaded to 4channel by someone who claims to work at a studio that already has access to the PS5 devkits. The original poster believes the picture (see below) could be a first look at the PS5’s UI, although it doesn’t reveal much detail about the upcoming next-gen console.

A familiar tile-based format is present that is reminiscent of the user interface found on the PlayStation 4. It makes sense for Sony not to make too many drastic changes in this specific area of the PS5’s development. The system software version is visible as 0.100.020 and there is also mention of free disk space, with over 891 GB of storage remaining on the 1 TB SSD.

The tiles run horizontally across the high-resolution screen (some believe it may even be a PS5 devkit running on a 4K monitor) with a vertical drop-down menu also visible in this leaked image. If it is a PS5 UI, then it is plain to see the similarity in design with the PS4’s user interface. However, this is likely for a devkit version of the next-gen console, so the final design for the consumer model of the PS5 could be completely reworked.
