I'm satisfied with the dashboard UI but it's good to hear Microsoft listening to the consumer and improving things that they want along with all the new IP's

I wonder what the other updates that aren't listed for next year are

alexkoepp934d ago

Has anyone actually received the update? Said it would be up 3 hours ago, no update around here...

Fireseed934d ago

Yeah i downloaded it an hour ago.

MrPerfect813933d ago

I got it this morning, or saw it install at least....didnt try anything out on it yet.

TheUltimateGamer934d ago

I'm hoping to see a native app that allows you to stream music and video from your PC and Mac. An update on the party system would be nice as well.

Galletto3934d ago (Edited 934d ago )

Xbox music can stream your music. I have all the music from my PC accessible on my X1. No subscription either.

I agree on the party system though

@TheUltimateGamer

I did it like this: First I downloaded this windows 8 app ( http://apps.microsoft.com/w... ) onto my PC. It automatically synced all my music already on the comp. Then I downloaded the xbox music app and it had synced all my music from the cloud and was ready to play.

TheUltimateGamer934d ago

I must've missed something. Is it a pull from the X1 as it was the 360? Or do you have to push it from the PC end?

Finch934d ago

Looks like its from the cloud. Have to add your list to the cloud then you have access from there.

Naga934d ago (Edited 934d ago )

I hate to break this to you (I really do, because I was bummed when I discovered this), but you are on a temporary pass with Xbox Music. You are only able to have a certain number of plays before it automatically cuts off your ability to play from the cloud without a subscription.

I think it informed me when I had 10 or 15 free plays left, and you get over 100 or something. So, just a heads up. I was really bummed out when it told me, and now I just have to "Play To" from my computer's music collection, because I refuse to pay for any music service ever. It's not a problem, but it's not quite as fun to use.

Finch934d ago (Edited 934d ago )

I have to agree with onagao. I just tried it and I have already used all but two plays left before this. Now I just burned through all my plays with my own list. Cool feature but this by all means should be free if its your own list.

malokevi934d ago

Doesn't work for me either. I have 57 gigs of music on skydrive. Without a pass you get nothing. Even with a pass, it only pulled a ridiculously small subset of my collection down to my x1, when compared with my other Windows devices.

It's a broken system right now. I'm really hoping they both fix it and make it more accessible.

This is the part I like:

"We’ve got quite a few updates planned for the next year based on the community feedback we’ve been seeing, and I’ll have details on those in the future."

Glad to hear there is going to be (hopefully) a lot of improvements next year!

curtis92934d ago

Ill give MS credit that they definitely don't stop tweaking their OS.

dansdooz934d ago

Next year! Some more before xmas right now the box is a mess, these are necessary updates to improve performance.

ThePope934d ago

The Box is not a mess. People need to stop saying that. It works great 90% of the time and I'm sure this update will make that 95%.

dansdooz934d ago (Edited 934d ago )

It is a mess, you might be able to see past its shortcomings for the moment but i dont even want to turn mine on, its not ready....
The ui slows down about a day after a cold boot, hopefully this addresses that, in uk we dont even have 50hz support, so the tv passthru is totally useless!
The xbox logo on dash has caused screen burn on my £1500 plasma tv! Themes are sorely needed or dim the logo!
Everything being an app now makes navigation a chore.
It has potential but im not waiting a year for it.

Honestly guys this thing is a mile off 360 functionality as is, the box is great but its far from ready!
In case you missed it the biggest selling point for xbox one is tv passthru, in usa you are using 60hz for cable, in europe we are 50hz, the box does not support 50hz full screen in europe unless you force it to which then makes games unplayable. And yet still no response from microsoft regarding this.

TRD4L1fe934d ago

almost anything can cause screen burns when it comes to a plasma TV, that's one of the biggest issues with them. Navigation is really easy, I don't see how you say it is a chore. I have not had any issues with the UI, has been working great since day one

Ashby_JC934d ago

It really sucks about the cable issue.

Can you explain exactly how it's a chore to navigate the UI?? With the Kinect it's simple. Even with the controller you can get around.

The problem I had initially was knowing where everything was and getting used to what was what abd how the system worked.

So...how is it a chore to get anywhere on the UI FOR YOU?

Ps, you can also use BING to search for anything.

malokevi934d ago (Edited 934d ago )

"a mess" lol

Maybe I'm easy to please, but it seems to be working great for me. Sure, there are issues, but calling it "a mess" is hyperbole and a half.

Knowing MS, they will sort it out. For now it's as functional as I would expect a Windows device to be put of the gate.

As far as it being hard to navigate the UI, here's a tip:

"Xbox, [insert desire]"

Or,

"Xbox, bing... [insert request]"

Once you understand that, it takes a fraction of the time to do anything you would have done on your 360.

Benchm4rk934d ago

Why would you even leave the xbox logo on screen long enough to cause screen burn in the first place. Change the channel and come back to it in 5 mins to see if its finished or not.

dansdooz933d ago (Edited 933d ago )

navigating with kinect is great, maybe my choice of words 'chore' was not correct, my point being i had to go through 3 apps yesterday just to get to what i wanted to do.
The ui is simplified when using kinect but why does everything have to be a seperate app, im sure this is one of the biggest complaints that ms will address shortly.
regarding the white logo with the black background, this is the worst possible scenario for a plasma tv and considering ms want me to do everything thru this device having that logo there will be fairly consistent, however i have screen burn protection turned on and am generally careful and it has still caused image retention that is still there after constant use of slides to get rid of it.
cable companys know this and make their logos dim so they dont cause this, ms needs to do the same.

Gremdude933d ago

@ThePope 90% and 95% are terrible! Imagine if your car only worked 95% of the time. Would you be satisfied with your purchase? LOL

JeffGUNZ933d ago (Edited 933d ago )

That's why plasmas are so cheap in comparison to LED. They look fantastic, but screen burn is the huge draw back.

@Gremdude

He should have said works flawlessly, not just works. The system always works it doesn't just shutdown if it doesn't hear your command. Also, you never have had an issue with your car in your life? Pretty sure that is why we have mechanics and garages, nothing is 100%. Sure, it's a larger scale due to the fact youre paying 30K for a car as opposed to 500 for a system. Awful comparison there.

Gamer666933d ago

I have both the PS4 and X1... To me, both weren't ready yet.

PS4 looks more polished, but I have been booted out of games many times and had to restart the console more than 5 times.

X1 doesn't look as polished, but I have only been booted from a game once and only had to restart the console twice.

And this is why we need competition. I have a PS4 but I feel gratefull to MS for forcing Sony to release the best PS4 they could. Also Sony was acting like getting feedback and making adjustments for us gamers. This has forced MS to also look more consumer friendly while in the end they only care about our money. If Sony had the monopole it would have been PS3 all over again. If MS had the monopole they would have take their time solving those issues.
Competition is good for us gamers.

KingDadXVI934d ago

Good to see the communication before hand, especially letting people know that their console will be completely powered down and requires you push the button to start it.

I am sure that there still will people who do not here about this though and end up thinking their console is broken.
