A New Look for PlayStation Forums is Coming

[ Edited ]

Hey PlayStation Community,

 

Wanted to give you all a heads up that next week the PlayStation Forums will be receiving a makeover. It's slated to change next week on 2/11 at around 7am Pacific. So let’s get right to it and break down what’s coming:

 

New Visual Design & User Interface

  • The new visual design is both easy on the eyes and more organized so you can easily find the content and conversations that are important to you.
  • You will also notice that our new forum design features a lighter color palette. We know that many of you prefer a darker skin, so we are working on a dark skin version that will be available soon.

New Homepage

 

  • A vibrant homepage that highlights some of the best community content.
  • An improved navigation to help you find the discussions you’re looking for
  • A calendar featuring events, game release dates, and more.

PlayStation General Updates

 

  • Due to the importance of the newly implemented Label system, the sorting function will now be much more prominently displayed and easy to use and will help you find the types of conversations you want to participate in.

Improved Thread Layout 

 

 

  • Threads will now have a cleaner design and added share functions, so you can easily post any topic you like on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.
  • You’ll also notice that if you’re a PS Plus member, a Plus icon will appear next to your name.

Better Sub Navigation

 

  • A permanent sub navigation bar at the top will allow for ease of navigation to different boards and community hubs on the PlayStation Forums. 

We’re very excited to roll out this new update, and of course we’ll be continuing to improve our forums as we move forward. Please let us know your thoughts on these updates in the meantime. Once the update is live, we’ll have another dedicated thread where you can share your feedback with us.

Mobile will remain largely the same, except for a bit of tidying up structure-wise. It's designed to be a standard version of the forums across all mobile devices so it loads quickly. 

 

However, we do plan on turning our focus on mobile functionality in further updates.

Not a fan of the white color, especially in the night.
If there is an option to change the theme that would be great.

I love these dark blue palette colors.
