Get an in-depth look at the PS4's new store and user interface

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

A new, nine minute video hosted by Sony Network Entertainment vice president Eric Lempel takes a deep dive into the PlayStation 4's user interface and revamped PlayStation Store, offering a valuable look at the less glamorous but vitally important side of the console.

Lempel walks viewers through logging into the PS4 and navigating the PlayStation Dynamic Menu, showing how quickly console owners can see what their friends are up to and jump right into a livestreamed game. A peek into the remodeled PlayStation Store shows how much smoother leafing through content is on PS4 compared to PS3, and how fast players can get from the interface back into a game.

The PS4 user interface walkthrough also touches on game detail pages, friends, trophies and much more.
