Do you like windows high contrast theme? Well it will soon be your lucky day! Sony is in the midst of testing a new look and revamped PSN interface.
It appears Sony have listened to it’s users (first time for everything I guess) and decided to fix the text heavyness of the current layout. Currently in the “market-testing” stage (you know, focus groups etc) the new de-cluttered look has been quoted as “an aesthetic layout with logically marked sections and rolodex lists”. Replacing the frankly boring old blue feel with ” ultra bright colours on a black background.”, I could be picturing it wrongly but that does sound a little like “high contrast” to me.
The look is thought to borrow more than a little from IMDB with tabs of extra information on films and games on the right that allow the user to click through to more information on things like genre, publisher, developer, etc for games and actor, director, etc, etc for movies.
All I can really say is, as long as you keep users details secure and don’t act like power hunger nutters I don’t really care how PSN looks, maybe just me though.
