We’re yet to see a price or even the physical console itself but we can now see what the day-to-day menu screens may look like.

Player profile screens have been spruced up and now feature photos and real names of players for the first time. We imagine you’ll be able to tweak the privacy of these features. We can also see what may be the screen that appears upon pressing the new Share button in a menu asking if we’d like to share a screenshot or video, there’s even a screen showing a video trimming feature.
