Examiner: "With the launch of the Xbox One just four months away(!) many are wondering why Microsoft hasn't shown any footage of the new and updated dashboard/operating system yet."
Ok. They have 3 OS running but no dashboard yet ? I thought the dashboard would be the same as windows 8.
Of course they have a dashboard, but it's not ready to be shown off yet. Obviously, they're working on tweaks here and there.
Sony hasn't really shown their interface either, in that respect MS has showed off a lot more tbh, such as the snapping functionality.
pretty sure they already showed off the dashboard... http://sticktwiddlers.com/w...
They afraid Sony copy thier dashboard and pull a 180.
They have to work out how many squares/blocks you get on the screen and how many are oriented to entirely to Ads. LOL
@gaffyh If I am not mistaken it has been the other way around; grant it MS did show their dashboard/interface during their reveal which was good, but nothing else has been revealed about the dash. Sony has posted pictures and even have a 5-min video showing everything their interface can do on the PS4. I will be honest, I never even realized MS hasn't shown much of their dash until this article. I am sure that will be adjusted in a few weeks at gamescon.
more like its not finished yet #xboxfail
Shocked this wasn't shown at E3 and then hyped for the next 5 months. They have only done that the last 3 years now that they changed it every single year too.
Riiiiiiight.. Given the Inconsistencies with the Dashboard on the Xbox 360 and the continual change of the look of the Dashboard, I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't have a working or finished model yet. Probably trying to see how they can incorporate all that "fandangled" Gb space to use.. just fill it ice cream. Everyone loves ice cream!
pfft...like the dashboard will be a deciding factor for ANYONE to buy the damn thing! why can't we just wait and when time comes, it will feel fresh! usability is more important that the dashboard itself! it can be the best looking dashboard of all time but if the usability sucks, it sucks! just like how the Metro ruined it for many desktop Windows 8 users and the new PS Store for example of neat looking but crappy usability compared to the good old PS Store!
Leaked picture of the new dashboard. Looks..colorful.A little clustered, but i can dig it. http://oi44.tinypic.com/2cm...
Brawndo. It's got what plants crave.
Oh man, that's funny.
They have it, but not ready for a live walkthrough. See no issue here as neither is Sony's new OS, of which we've only seen marketed videos on and nothing live with it.
so they are doing a new one than the one shown at E3? Cause they did "demo" the dash
I guess what we saw at E3 is the projected image of what it will be like and not what it actually was
'Because it isnt done yet.' is the basic answer. Also less importantly it gives them something to show later on.
In that case, this system has been rushed. It should be finished by now with arms Patching cracks that show through.
I wouldnt know, I've never made a console. Clearly you have, as you seem to know these things.
Slimey why would not just ask Cam if he had ever worked on a console instead of being a A$$.
"We can't do that - the software is not done and not in a state to share," Lary Hyrb So the dashboard showed at the xbox one reveal was fake huh?
or it was in the alpha or beta stage ... Why hasnt sony shown the dashboard operating in real time!? and no that corny video doesn't count. Probably cuz they are still working on it also probably why they havent shared details on how much ram is reserved for the OS
Maybe the one they showed off at the reveal was their target?? The xbox team has done great work with re-identifying their hardware with new os looks like the nxe, so I'm not expecting to be disappointed by the xbox one dash.
Yes it was faked. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... On top of that, the football team that was playing the game in the backround as he was talking actually weren`t even in the playoffs anymore.Wasn`t real demo and certainly wasn`t real time.
Wow DayZ you may take the cake for most pathetic trolling attempt I have ever seen. OF COURSE the game wasn't real time, the season had been over for months. Just wow.
So Frosty then Day is right...right.
DayZ, smh No s#!t it wasn't real time. It was in May. The Football (NFL) is over in Feb.
Espn still shows footage of football even when the season is over because they talk about football all year just like baseball and basketball.
They need to show it soon. Any later than Gamescom is cutting things a bit fine.
When is Gamescom??
21st to the 25th of August
Agreed. I'd say the same thing about release date for both consoles.
E3 wasn't showing it ?
I get my exam results on the 22nd August, let's hope something good happens on that day. Wish me luck, I hope I nailed my exams.
Good luck bro. Its been years since I had them but the thought of them still makes my bowels churn. So much riding on them. Here's a bubble for courage.
It's probably the Windows Metro screen, they've thrown that shower of **** into every other device.
its so sh*** sony copied its design elements for the Ps4 dashboard!
How about we stop with the copying crap. We could say that every company copies another company. It's just ridiculous.
Herpaderp Microsoft copied blu Ray Sony and micro copied the controller Every game copies pong. You get how ignorant comments like yours can sound right?
we already know what its going to look like... metroish. Kinda like the current 360 dasboard but better
ummm... they showed the dashboard at announcement
They've shown it at e3? Just another Sony lover trying to cast doubt in Xbox one
They have it running but like all software they will need to keep checking for bugs and errors.They will keep fine tuning it till its perfect for the consumers(you and i)...lol
Wow you boys are in for a treat with the new dash, butnit costs £5 a month to use lol
I like the black in there, regardless of whether it was a mockup. It was pretty sexy. Wallpapers and themes are cool too though.
One could say why hasn't Sony really showed anything... At all. Besides knack.
Neither company has shown, in detail, their functioning dashboard.
All the fluff is pretty irrelevant to me. What I care about is how fast my game loads, how well it plays and fast response times. Don't care for swimming dolphins in the background but I do care about clicking 9 things to load my last save.
This article is presenting "why" they havent, or at least quoting Larry Hyrb, as an explanation - not a question. It's not "Why hasn't MS show the UI?" - it about the reason why they haven't yet. Neither company has shown their UI for their new consoles.
This Larry guy is MS employee. So, whatever he speaks, is official word on behalf of MS. No matter how many times you circle around, the fact remains
What are you saying to me?
After september 21 they will show it when the NDA expires.
Not enough RAM lol
A couple of more months and it'll be showtime for both systems. Can't wait this gen seems very interesting
They are waiting for Sony to fully show theirs so they can....Innovate lol
The dashboard is pretty much ready. They are just contemplating whether to use Doritos ad or Mountain Dew or both. Once they make that decision, the dashboard will be out to public within in an hour.
Haven't Microsoft already said the xbox one is all about advertising?
People are ignoring it and thinking everything is actually going to be alright. http://www.sticktwiddlers.c... Read that article. Worrying. The Dashboard is either not ready yet, or MS are worried that people will flip out again when they see the ad-filled dash and see them again for the kind of company that they truly are. I wonder why Kinect is a required part of the console, when you can play games and browse the OS with the controller, and turn the console on with your finger on a button. Well... why else but data mining for personalised advertisements. The fanboys wish there was a tin foil hat theory here. Nope, you heard it from Microsoft themselves.
Why is everyone worried about advertisements? We have advertising everywhere.. TV, radio, websites etc.. Hey, even the soda can I just picked up has an advertisement on it. It's part of life and I guess we just have to deal with it. Now, as far as Microsoft not having their dashboard ready for the public to see, relax. Microsoft is a software company.. I'm pretty sure they'll be fine.
They're probably busy trying to figure out how to fit more sports, TV and COD on it.
https://www.google.com.tr/s... win8 boringness again..
Actually they did show it in an interview. They showed the homescreen and the multiple apps side by side clipping. Although I gotta say, it didn't look too smooth nor optimized (nothing like on the show floor). I was not impressed. I couldn't find the video but I saw it during E3. I would agree not to make it too public yet.
Given how many times the 360 dashboard has changed and been rewarked, does it really matter? Still, it is another case of MS not being called on something which Sony gets pointlessly raked over the coals. Like not showing the console during their first press conference.
Wonder if it will have a start button ...
Of the two next gen consoles being developed, MS's UI is the least to worry about considering their dashboard on the 360 was constantly updated and imo far superior to the ps3's. They will show it when its ready to be shown.
And you lose at "far superior". By the time most people get to look at the UI they'll own whichever console they planned to buy in the first place. If its not both.
No sir I win because like I said its my "opinion" that the 360 UI is far SUPERIOR to the ps3's UI. So you see, its impossible for me to lose. And how do you know exactly when we will get to look at the X1 UI? Uhave some sort of insider info? Well of coarse you do I mean this is n4g where everybody is an expert... And clearly your a Sony fanboy based off the amount of bubbles you have and this being n4g.
Superior UI still plays a factor with casual players who are still on the fence but their buddies have either a XB1, a PS4, or both.. watching from the sideline, if one experience looks much better than the other yet the games look virtually identical to the untrained eye, that could influence a potential purchase.. especially with all the "cool" voice commands, gestures, and etc of the Kinect 2.0 being thrown in the mix
I think it will be some sort of version of windows 8 to be honest.... I mean... if they did that... and be aloud to have steam on there... man... that would... be a huge game changer.... but that is just the idea in the clouds.... that said I think it will be some modify version of windows 8 in some skinned out fashion.. Which I think will be good from the sounds of users of windows 8... they like it... but we shall see ... Dreamcast used windows CE want not..
