As per the blog, the new UX introduces several new features designed to make the gaming experiences fun, engaging, personalised and social.
One of the highlights pointed out in the blog is a new Control Center, which provides gamers with immediate access to almost everything they might need from the system at the single press of the PlayStation button on the DualSense wireless controller.
