Sony releases introductory video to PlayStation 5's user experience

Sony has today released a new video on the YouTube page revealing some new footage of the upcoming game console. For the first time, Sony offers an rather in-depth look at the UI of PlayStation 5.
In this 11 minute video they go through some of the most important UI elements found in the new console. It starts off from a mid-game state paused, as you would start you console from rest mode. The view is called Control Center and via it you can access controller settings, communications, and power options, as well new Cards that include news and game specific Activities.

The video also goes through multiplayer features like the improved Party system with voice chat and media sharing, and of course the Home Screen that hasn't changed a ton from previous generations, probably for a good reason.

One of the more impressive new features is the splitscreen and picture-in-picture viewing of game help content as well as shared screens of your friends.

The entire experience has been designed with 4K displays in mind, and that is what you want to have to get everything out of PS5. But without further ado, here's the video:
