PS Vita's user interface pictured

We explore some of the finer details of the PlayStation Vita's software experience.

Do you admire Vita's UI?

Despite the PlayStation Vita launching in the U.S. several months from now, some people know little about the actual user interface.

In CNET's hands-on preview with the Vita, it's quite clear the software represents a big departure from the traditional XMB-interface used in predecessors PSP and PlayStation 3.

Now, some of the clearest screenshots of the Vita interface to date have emerged from Sony's PlayStation division in Japan. While the screenshots are in Japanese, there will be little difference in the aesthetic experience (except for icon pictures) when the next-generation handheld lands in the hands of gamers around the world.

Check out this Sony neat video in Japanese showing off some of the user interface.
