Sounds like it won’t be long until we see the PS5’s UI. In this article, I am gonna tell you about the latest gaming technology news on PS5. UI is going to be revealed soon, consistent with replies during a LinkedIn post by PlayStation’s VP of UX Design Matt Maclaurin. As captured by Resetera (though we were ready to verify this ourselves), McLaurin says “you’ll see our stuff soon”, and hinted a touch at what the team at PlayStation has been performing on.
Seemingly describing the PS5 UI, Maclaurin says it’s “a little more programmed, but a 100% overhaul of PS4 UI and a few very different new concepts.”
“We’ll show more of the OS soon!” Maclaurin says.
There is another interesting bit in Maclaurin’s replies. One person asked why the PS5 console is greater and bulkier. “‘Thermals,” McLaurin responded. “This gen is small supercomputers. While the 7nm process delivers amazing heat performance for the facility, the facility is extremely extreme.”
Someone else asked if the console comes in black like its previous models. Maclaurin responded with a “Maybe.” We wouldn’t put an excessive amount of stock therein reply for now, though. Another person asked if the console comes in black, and Maclaurin was non-committal.
Also, leave the black rectangles within the media center and keep this one within the open. A black PS5 seems like a dead cert at some point, but we’d be very surprised to ascertain this in time for launch.

The UI change from PS3 to PS4 was widely hailed as a huge intensify, so it’ll be interesting to ascertain what Sony thinks the PS5 must do better. It’s likely, too, that we have a variety of latest gaming technology features coming with the PS5 that we do not realize yet, like how the PS4 included the Share button. They’ll presumably factor into the UI design in some form.
McLaurin’s comment of “very different new concepts” perhaps points therein direction. During the PS5’s next reveal, we expect to find out about price, release date, and what else the hardware can do, but Sony hasn’t offered any indication of when its next showing is going to be.
Still, it’s nice to finally see actual information on the PS5 doing the rounds, rather than spurious nonsense.
