It looks like Sony is going to do at least one thing good with the PS3. Man this thing looks pretty.

Wow, thats cool. I always liked the way PSPs menu was set up

[Edit]

And you can use a keyboard and mouse to surf the net. Not too bad

Looks a lot like my PSP Fantastic! That is a terrific interface. Although, I won't be purchasing one, I just can't afford it.

So, which do you like more, the PS3s or 360s interface

I think I have to go with the PS3

I'm happy with the 360 interface but the ps3 is way more slick. I heard rumbles that the 360 will get an interface upgrade at the end of the month.

Looks pretty "cool" but it's no where near as clear as the 360's.  It's also amazing just how many featuers they copied from it..

That is pretty cool. However, it is a carbon copy of my PSP's interface. It's a great interface, it's just nothing new.

It was ok, but it didn't look particularly attractive

It was organized and functional, but it looks dull and boring in my opinion. I like how the 360 interface is colorful and cool, while still maintaining a good organized layout. Sony needs to work on this a bit, it doesn't really feel like a "homepage" like the 360's interface does. At least not to me.

Its still a while before release though, so in Sony's defense, this could have been used more to show off the PS3's capabilities more than its interface.

What makes Sony instantly cool with that video is that the song they played was by Flyleaf. That means they're cutting edge and into shiny new things. ;)

I like the PS3 interface better than the 360 one.  The 360s interface has so much potential, but it's bogged down by MS's typical design style: bloated, glassy, and lacks proper size proportions.  The PS3 / PSP interface is so clean and beautiful and has such wonderful negative space.  However I must say that the 360 interface is one of the better designed things ever to come from MS, however it pales in comparison to the dashboard in Vista.  Looks very sharp (considering I've only seen it in a low res video).

And just imagine the PS3 interface when you have hundreds of pictures or songs stored on it.   ;D
It's just like the PSP design, it may look nice, but it's not very practical when you have a lot of media stored on it.

I don't know what some of you are talking about, but this is amazing looking.  Keep in mind they will have custom interfaces.  Personally I would have something professional looking rather than something that is colorful and shinying.  They did a great job with the 360 interface, but a web browser allowing multiple pages to be up at once with the capability of using a keyboard and mouse with it.  Pretty soon I won't need a computer thanks to Sony.  Just need to be able to play computer games on it, and thats that.
