Penello "really, really sorry" that the Xbox One UI hasn't been publicly shown

Examiner: "We're only two months away from the launch of the Xbox One and Microsoft is still yet to show the user interface in a public manner." (Xbox One)

Why apologize show things when they're ready, again whenever hes tries to be sincere folks only sling more mud, when a sony exec says we're sorry or something genuine like Yoshida for example about ps4 reveal no console, No Last Guardian or the terrible Gamescom streaming footage or when Cerny admits Knack is a "secondary purchase", its all good because see thats just sony being honest with their fans. lol, so many hypocrites.

Heres a fair assessment of the latest UI demo:

-For the most part it sounds as if so far the UI is working properly with still some minor bugs to workout, I imagine their priority is to get everything running as smooth as possible before launch. Secondary is showing close to finished UI functionality, I dont recall any hands on public demos by the competition either but maybe I missed it.

DigitalRaptor  +   866d ago
@ Jokes

All I can really respond to that is, the UI is basically Microsoft's whole sell with the XB1. Before they showed games, it was all you guys were talking about, and they haven't shown it yet, along with all those supposedly integral features that aren't there at launch.

That is not comparable to them not showing us a console that we know will be console-shaped, or a couple of games, or a live streaming issue.

I cant remember them saying they are sorry, just changing things bc the public outcry was much more than anticipated . And the "flip the switch" statement is a ridiculous point jumped on by PS fanboys. Its stupid how political the console wars are getting. He made a generalization that accurately reflected that it wasn't a 2 second process. If you have ever worked in tech, you know that even if something is achieved through a seemingly minor code change, there are many, many ripple effects. People worked a lot of hours to put changed into place quickly

There is no need to be sorry... just show it. Problem solved :) The system launches in 60 days and I'm sure they want to give it a public showing before hand.
Eonjay  +   866d ago
"We've booked to do it a couple times, and my schedule hasn't allowed it. I wanted to get this demo out publicly sooner."

- Okay this isn't a valid response. Why do we have to wait for his schedule? Just take it over to IGN, Cnet, or Gamespot and do a sitdown. Anyone can do it, it doesn't have to be Penello, and it doesn't have to be a 20/20 special report with Barbra Walters.

UltimateMaster why because he speaks the truth?

Sorry for what? The guy is just being nice there isnt anything to even be sorry for and as usual you haters cant resist attacking him. We've seen more about every aspect of the X1 than ps4. Sony did one little walkthrough on stage with I believe it was Yoshida, nobody has had hands on with ps4s UI functionality running realtime showing us with independent people using it but once again all the n4g sony fan kids pretending like micro is the one hiding something. I can see there being more issues for ps4 when it launches like the touchpad not working during the live on air demo at TGS because nobody asks sony anything or they simply say hey just wait everythings coming in the future and its fine. The positive scrutiny from real gamers has been good for X1 though, so the console has improved, Ryse & DR3 are better off from the bad press and constructive criticism from true fans, so its all good but the level of hate on this site is ridiculous some of you need to focus on what sony isnt saying because karma has a way of biting haters in the butt.

Well sorry is better than the typical MS arrogance that we have to deal with alo the time. They should do a video to showcase the UI. Even if it features stuff that is unusable at launch, we can at least have a better idea of what we're getting.

More importantly, who is supporting Jokesonyou's biased trolling PR bullcrap? 8 bubz now? Why would N4G let a troll make it to a mod level?

@joke When you take into account the most recent history of failed promises blotched accoutrements and overall anti-consumer nature of Microsoft's PR department you can't just condemn everyone who shows mistrust or disdain.

You also fail to take into account the retroactive opinion of the community. It should be very clear that when a company gets a large following of people hating them. There is a very good reason for that. Likewise, if a company gets a good reputation in the eyes of public its because they're doing something RIGHT or the competition is doing something horribly wrong.

There is no mind control going on here. Everyone isn't being paid for their subjective views. They aren't all hypocrites like your personal attack comment states.

I believe all people have the infallible rights to generate their own opinions based on personal insight. Not because they have shallow views or loyalties but because they've been given the free will to express themselves without ridicule.

Flat out calling people hypocrites to insult them is by no means constructive or privy to any professionalism.

On any level the comment posted by TomShoe is based on reality. Sure he's implying that the representative may be lying. Lying is sometimes the nature of being a corporate representative. His comment is simply taking into account that such matters are ALWAYS apologetic.

Nothing more nothing less.

Please don't insult the community. I've tried my best to be fair and humbled to others. I've never received a well said for being straight up that I'm aware of. I try my best to represent the best understanding of all views before passing judgment on others. I don't have friends bubbling up from popularity pyramids or alternate accounts. I would hope you would choose the same path.

Lastly: You have so many disagrees yet the comment gets "well said" +bubbles despite the obvious trolling and insulting nature of your post. This defies all reasonable logic. No offense to your fans but who's supporting these disruptive comments. IMHO, the anti-social nature of your comment should count for -bubbles not well said even if there are partial truths. So please, try and keep it classy. By doing so you my gain more sincere respect in the community.

@JamieL & andibandit

Did I say anything or do anything immature by appealing to the community. I'm saying if we don't like how the community is organized or run we don't have to support it by promoting destructive comments.

I looked at his comment. I didn't deny there is some truth in it. I can't speak for others but as a being of free thought and moral understanding I'm capable of modest restraint.

I don't see any reason why someone would become so upset over "How many times have I heard this before?" The comment jokes made is relevant to a point of his own inception. I haven't seen much from both Sony or Microsoft's UI. Such comment applies to either company and its representative not just Penello.

As I've already said. I haven't seen much from Sony or Microsoft's UIs. I wouldn't go so far to be insulting about the ignorance of others for one generalized comment that applies to everyone.

In that respect I'm simply appealing to the intelligence of others to support a firm moral stance. That stance is to just hit agree or disagree without supporting derogative comments that promote disruptive attacks.

For the record I'm not new. I just feel I have a higher understanding behind the psychology of most N4G members. I'm willing to dismiss most reactions but to what end if others don't follow by example.

JokesOnYou  +   864d ago
Sarick for the record while I do appreciate what is obviously mostly other members who support the xbox brand supporting me I have never asked for bubbles or cared about my bubble count. When I joined this site years ago I was just as immature and irrational as any of the worst fanboys past or present. I justified my behavior back then as what I saw as "tit for tat" but long ago realized I only lowered myself and represented myself in a way I didnt like. I like to think although admittedly I'm no saint and I will let some know not so nicely from time to time, still I'm better off without anger. Ive apologized and although its the internet where we are all anonymous and I dont want to sound cliché but Ive just tried to be true to myself and never let others affect how I feel or dictate what I say. I'm right sometimes, I'm wrong sometimes but either way its how I genuinely feel when I comment. See its not impossible to turn over a new leaf but I keep this account instead of starting over so everyone can see my flawed past and I remember where I came from. lol

Now on this issue I stand behind my statement that calling out Penello for simply saying he's sorry for basically not showing the UI publicly is hypocritical when you consider the general reaction to the topics in regards to sony being honest about some things that didnt happen, or weren't as first perceived. It's not even a case of a lie or mistake, he's really apologizing out of nowhere.....also its fair to point out their direct competition has shown far LESS of their UI functionality so again I FEEL like its very hypocritical on many known sony fans part to bash Penello on this issue. I do respect and appreciate you disagreeing in a very rational manner. Either way I'm not here to convince anybody about me or this subject just saying what I think and let folks make up their own mind.

Are you sure? I see the some relevance to your reasoning. They'll clearly want to keep it analogous with their PC OS and mobile devices to promote cross platform acceptance.

I my doubts the XB1 OS will be a direct parallel to windows 8. I assume it will have some overlapping relationships comparable to Microsoft's metro interface but not be a complete variation of windows 8 itself.
bligmerk  +   865d ago
There is the undeniable proof there, believe it was every third party, including "console exclusive" had high-end gaming PC's for their stage and booth demos at TGS. This is after rage-bragging a few weeks ago, they would have "hundreds" of XBone pre-production units at TBS. So, they didn't have enough to give to their third party partners or did the third party partners basically say wanted their demos to be on a gaming PC? *cough*Titanfall*cough*
ZeroX9876  +   866d ago

windblowsagain  +   865d ago
Problem is, nobody wants that type of UI. It's horrible on windows 8, it's horrible on windows phones.

Nokia made a big mistake going that route.
mcstorm  +   865d ago
That's your opinion. I would take the Windows 8 and Windows Phone UI over IOS and android any time. IOS is just a list of Icons and Android is a updated version of Windows Mobile's UI. None of them I have ever liked.

Also Nokia never made a mistake by going down the Windows Phone rout and sales prove this. Nokia were flapping and going the same way RIM have just gone. Nokia now have one of the best selling phones on the market in the Lumia 520 and have made the Lumia Name a big name along Galaxy and Iphone in terms of the general public.

Also if you think Nokia should of gone Android this is also wrong. The Android market is flooded by devices and owned by Samsung and Nokia would not of been able to stand out just like HTC are having the same issue with the One.

I am not saying Microsoft have the best products on the market and im not saying Sony, Apple, Google ect are too as it is a matter of choice but ide rather have OS's that look fell and act different to each other rather than everyone just copy everyone else.

Oh that's ok Albert. It doesn't matter too much, I'm not worried. You guys have great form with the UI. Its a changeable thing so I'm sure you will change several times during the X1s live span as you did the 360.

Just make sure the thing plays games really well out of the box and you can tinker with the UI to your hearts content.

If them taking the drm stuff out before it launched wasn't enough to capture you then im sure an apology would have still escaped you..
BG11579  +   865d ago
When they announce the patch to remove the DRM and 24h connection, the message was that they had listen to the complains of the players about it and decided to please us. In a sense, it was like "See how great we are because we listen what the consumers complaints". There was no "sorry" or "mea culpa" or anything addressed to us.
The truth is, if they really had listened to the players, they would have change the policy long before long before the presentation. Just after the tweeter revelations/flame-war with the ex-artistic director for the Xbox, for example.
The real reason of the change of policy was the difference of pre-order numbers between Sony's and Microsoft's console. Don Mattrick annd pears were all like "Hell, we are not selling at all! In the next board meeting we are going to get killed by investors. We got to do something or we are death.". (There was even a news about this meeting board at N4G later on). And the thing is, they still believe that their long term vision hasn't change at all (you can also check that out here in N4G).

So yeah I'm pissed with them, but I got good reasons to be so. So, don't you make excuses for them, it's up to them to apologize and to change accordingly to those apologies.
I don't hate MS, I hate what MS has become.

There is nothing to apologize for. Neither company has really "shown" of the UI as a core presentation. Its been seen here and there running and to be frank like others have said I expect the UI of the Xbox One to go through changes over its life time.

Now I will say this. Showing off the UI working similar to what they did with Destructoid or ShackNews is something they should get a video of and out to the public pronto. What those sites described from their recent time with it is that magic that consumers need to see.

LordMaim  +   865d ago
Before you start down that road, look at the Xbox Division's finances. The Xbox (zero?) never made a profit, losing four billion dollars during its lifespan. The 360 lost another three billion and has only started making money in the last three years, but its a drop in the bucket compared to their other divisions, and not nearly enough to justify the PR black eye the Xbox One launch has given them. ValueAct pressed for Ballmer's resignation, and now they're pressing for Microsoft to sell the Xbox Division entirely. I doubt you'll get a "we're sorry" when that happens.
Regis  +   865d ago
In case you didn't know ValueAct only owns 1% of Microsoft Ballmer owns 19% which do you think will have the better voice.
LordMaim  +   857d ago
You tell me. The board fired him to appease ValueAct. Now ValueAct has a seat at the table that he no longer runs. As a result, stock prices went up. Ballmer doesn't own 19% of Microsoft. Not even Bill Gates, who is the largest individual shareholder, owns 19% of Microsoft. Ballmer owns under 5%, and he can't block a popular opinion alone. The Xbox Division's operating margin for the past 12 months was just 8.7 percent, versus 34 percent for the entire company. Its a constant source of PR issues, and has a direct affect on the value of Microsoft stock, as was seen after their disastrous reveal of the Xbox One in May. ValueAct aren't the only voting bloc that views the Xbox Division as a liability, and ultimately the vote will come down to profits.

Hey check this out:

Just trying to help you keep up on the latest news. The funny thing is that when you buy a new building you have to fill it with people. Over 2,000 for this one. Sony doesn't have the advantage of selling an OS on over 90% of the computer market. But their gaming division is just fine. Times are tough and have been tough for years but I guess Sony was the ONLY COMPANY that had to lay off people...rolls eyes...

first off, to people complaining that N4G is a playstation site. Please remember that this site is cyclical. When the 360 came out this site was all about the 360. Now the tides are turning and the ps4 is getting more news. As far as the UI is concerned I am sure it will work just fine. Do you people buy games for the UI, I didn't think so. And its not like any of us have had hands on with the either UI. So seeing it does little for us.

Microsoft have never been ready for 2013 launch. Thus is why Kinect has few languages, 3rd party exclusives were bought last minute, They announced that XB Indie games won't appear until next year, they dropped 8 launch countries and haven't shown a UI ( adapted one at that. Not even started from scratch).

And sharing DVR stuff is Live only at launch. Struggling for parity with PlayStation.

How comes we were being told last week that the Bone was rolling off the production lines? Surely it would roll off with the O/S pre-installed and we should not be hearing this close to launch there are bugs that need ironing out with production in FULL SWING!!!

It's called updates

Actually they may not be completely satisfied with the UI and how it is presented. I have seen a few vids of it online and if you look carefully its actually quite bland and drab.

They could still be tweaking it and you would have to do a day 1 update to bring the system up to speed.

Hence the no show of the UI. Imagine the backlash they would receive if that did happen.

I want to see it either A: when its done. Or B: when we need to do their job for them and fix it. This UI is the defining feature of the new Xbox. If it's not crystal, they might as well be selling us garbage.

MS probably wants to keep features quiet as long as they can since the competition tends to copy them at every turn.
