Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson offers a quick walkthrough of the Friends app on Xbox One, including never-before-seen features.
Wow nice. Glad to finally see this work in action. I like it. It seems very quick and intuitive too.
I must say it does look nice
The app looks fantastic and I can't wait to use it on November 22nd. But whenever I see a picture of Major Nelson I just want to punch him in his smug face.
I'm curious if that privacy setting can block specific people from following you or if it's just a blanket that blocks all strangers from following. The system is pretty much how I imagined it would be, very twitter and facebook like but in a gamer focused environment. Visually it's very nice, clean and simple looking for a in an easy to understand use, and find what you want quickly way. Oh, I hope there's a way to hide a friend you have from another friend from seeing. Some people have falling outs and expect you to drop a friend they dropped and It's nice to avoid the drama with specified privacy settings. I'm not an Xbox guy but this is looking really good, next gen is almost here people! The new features and user interfaces have me just as excited as all the games. :D
You can block a single person, which will isolate you from them in any way. Matchmaking, messaging, etc. They said that in the other video that was just posted.
Ahh ok, I must've missed that one.
nice, i love it. Very clean and easy to understand UI and FASTER. Thank the based god its faster!
Lol lil b
Major Nelson must be a bit of a bad sport to play against... not a perfect reputation tut tut. nice little favourting thing going on... will be handy for the COD, BF, or other such games that are built around team sports also just noticed in the corner the "dismiss" that came up when he called to the kinect, i assume that'll be the same for those trying the "xbox off" people are concerned about
Haha, I love the avatars.
really love this feature, but the theme looks bad. Hopefully it can be changed.
I agree, The functionality is great, but I do not like the Ui for some reason. It just seems to have too much on screen at once, but who knows. Will have to get hands on to judge.
That's one feature I'm waiting on confirmation. Hopefully, themes will make a return.
To be honest, Im loving the menu design. I think it looks real nice. I want to see more of the PS4 aswell, but I am very impressed for both UI
I'm not trying to be mean, but why the need to bring ps4 into this thread.
Nah, just for the fact that I see a lot of similarities in the design approach that both system use. Thats all. In saying that, Xbox needs to show off a proper walkthrough
dude ..take it easy...i think he was just being unbiased and neutral..unlike many others on this site....that aside i believe ms has done a great job with this..
I agree I would like to see more of both too.
I'm really loving that snap mode stuff. Looks like such an awesome feature.
Sexy design. I'm feeling it alot.
i swear i would walk in my friends house and say what up bro you aint put me in your favorite's its like that.
nice..looks really cool...great job guys..
UI looks absolutely horrible. Too many boxes...too much Windows 8. Snap feature looks good though although it seems a little gimmicky.
For stuff like an xbox and tablets, I think a windows 8 setup works. But for PC's its horrible. I think thats what has tainted many peoples opinions about the layout in general
Looks cool I hope they adf something similar to ps4 that when you click on a froends name it shows you a live video of wjat your friend is doing in the game
From what I have heard, 360 and XB1 have different friends lists - one of his friends is on GTA V, this mean GTA V coming to XB1
If you looked carefully it said playing GTA V On Xbox 360
Then you've heard wrong.
Didnt anyone notice the spartan looking thing on 1:25?
that's just one of his friend's avatars
Wonder if they polish the UI because the UI doesn`t look very good.
Better ui then the ps4, just saying
Sorry but the UI in the video looks unpolished and bad and I never liked the Metro UI.
Your flocking blind
what looks so bad about it?
The colour combination of green, white and gray looks horrible from a design point of view. That might be something that the user can change hopefully as there is an option that says "choose colour". Having the selection bar one time on the left (as example main App menu) and another time on the right (as example profile menu) isn`t a good design decision either.
@orangepowerz sorry, but that's some ridiculous nit-picky complaints.
B3st console best features
Nice. Hopefully there will be some degree of customisation to it.
Oh my MS bringing their OS A game to the table. Looks great and has a lot of nice features. Good job MS. Now waiting for the PS4 OS tour coming soon :)
Really clean and efficient UI , cant wait.
Awesome! i hope ign break this down! its looking miles better the ps4 stuff, the early preview looked awesome for ps4 but it looks like that was a marketing stunt
still pissed that they took out the guide menu
