Forums - Sony Discussion - PS5 start-up sound revealed

PS1 sound will never be topped.
It sounds better than PS3 and PS4 start up sounds for sure, tho.

How surprising that you don’t find the XBox boot screen boring in contrast to the PS5’s.

Ok?

The XBox Series boot up sequence is the same old logo they’ve been using forever, yet for some reason it is “so much better” than the PS5’s boot up? How is it any less generic than any other generic logo boot up sequences, including the PS5’s?

The PS5 boot ends with the logo to "push a button" on the controller with the same symbol they've been using since the 90's. Not to mention the font is the same they've been using since ps2.

So generic boot with spiderman text and symbol forever+1, no u, Uno reverse card?

It's a boot screen... Relax.

You will notice I didn’t say one was better than the other. So right back at you.

It's the same logo true, but then so is Sony's. Microsoft changed from the green background white text of the Xbox One boot screen to a black background with white text, so that is new. And I think the animation of the logo appearing is cool, coupled with the cool start-up sound effect. The PS5 startup just feels very plain to me, it's very similar to the PS4 one, right down to the oddly misplaced "See important health and safety warnings in the settings menu" warning. I just feel like Sony played it a bit too safe and boring with their start-up animation on PS5. 

Not like which start-up is better amounts to much in the end, that's not a factor in anybody's purchase decision.

I think both are generic and playing it safe. While you find things that are different on one side, you don’t see or don’t consider what’s different on the other side.

Call me intrigued.

PS5 does have a few changes, notably the background color (blue to black), the sound effect, the particles, and the flashing PS icon on the "Press PS button to use controller" screen, but the rest is the same. 

If you think Series X start-up is generic, I'm guessing you haven't seen the Xbox One start-up, it's one of the most boring console start-up animations of all-time. It's just an Xbox logo flying in, then a still splash screen. It was quite a sad effort from Microsoft, considering how good the OG Xbox and the 1st Xbox 360 start-up animations were. Series S/X start-up is a huge upgrade over XB1 in my eyes, much cooler animation for the logo appearing, better colors, and a start-up sound that is very reminiscent of Windows 98, with a splash of THX.

To be fair. PS logo is a brand logo where the current Xbox logo was created for a specific console. 360. Why it was a sphere. Xbox kept it because they felt like it even tho it no longer makes sense for them to use it. Xbox also struggles with branding. 360 logo and Xbox One X/Series X/One S/Series S/Xbox One. Windows 9 is called Windows 10. MS is sloppy with branding.
