Game console interfaces reviewed – Xbox 360 versus PlayStation 3


Here’s a kind of review you don’t see everyday. Aeropause compares the user interface on Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 3 to that on Microsoft’s shipping Xbox 360:

Don’t even get me started on how horrible the 360 interface has been. It sure looks bright, but it was a crap shoot on whether the option you were looking for was in the Settings blade, or buried somewhere in the “Xbox Guide”. The latest dashboard has improved the organization of the 360 interface greatly, but has done little to make it simpler and more streamlined. Microsoft has a lot of work to do, there.

It looks like someone over at Sony has a clue about how interfaces should work.

I’m certain that not all console users would agree and in the comments on the article some don’t with emphasis on the observation that the PS3 interface being just a warmed over version of the PS2 interface.
