Microsoft has rolled out a new version of the November dashboard update preview, and this time it included some quite interesting additions. A revamped Xbox One store and sharing videos directly to Twitter.
Was never a fan of the whole Windows Metro UI, but for Xbox One it is really starting to grow on me. The GUI still needs some work before it will be as easy and intuitive as the 360 but it'll get there sooner than later.
I have had my X1 for about two weeks now, gotta say, i am struggling to like the UI, only good thing about it, is the pin option at the front. I was never a fan of metro and rejoiced when they gave you the ability to get rid of it in W8.1.
Don't worry, it took me 6months to get used to it and I'm still having trouble finding things lol. Hopefully they overhaul it next year once windows 10 releases
What cracks me up is when people complain about how bad the X1 UI is, you bought a Microsoft product, they have been shoehorning that nasty Metro interface into everything they make for the last 4 years and somehow you expected it to be better on here? Xbox is just another way to push Windows to Microsoft.
it still looks like crap, the store is awful with 360 it was so easy to sort big releases from indie games with xbox live arcade now its all confusing and very hard to actually just browse games.
Haha, you made me laugh :)
This is awkward, I thought us Xbox gamers weren't meant to be looking for indie games?
I love it minus the store but this new update should fix that I've already downloaded but haven been on Xbox in a bit
Stop posting here Cooper find another site I was here first!
I see no difference at all. What's changed?
I cant believe people keep complaining....I think its goooood..
part of being an Xbox fan at N4G. You get used to it
Updates are always good. But on your comment, I've seen a pretty equal share of hate for both consoles, and a surprising amount of love for Nintendo lately.
Store is a lot better, still needs a bit of work though.
Menus should do 2 basic things - 1) minimal clicks to navigate to what you want. 2) duplicate menus should not exist. Eg three things on the screen taking you to the same place Menus should be easy to use, not frustrating.
the ui is easy i can find whatever i want with one voice gesture or a couple of clicks, the xbox one is an amazing system.
how do you become a Preview Member?
