May you live in interesting times
now THAT looks useful.
According to a rumor on the xbox subredit forums, we might be getting BC in October and the new UI will launch sometime after that.
The UI on the Xbox 360 took a few updates to reach its best, so pretty sure the same will be for Xbox One.
Better with age? ;)
I think the UI got worse on 360 in recent years, mainly for the fact that it takes about 40 seconds for my 360 to boot up since they decided they should have the marketplace (which you immediately visit maybe 1/10 of the time you turn on your xbox) load with it. NXE and the bladez 4eva
why doesd it take 40 seconds it takes my 360 literally 10 secs to get to the dashboard
"Microsoft is doing away with the tiled interface" thank God for that, i really did not like the tile interface. this new update does look interesting and i cant wait to try it out
I liked it lol . Should just use the 360 one they have now
Looks fine, but two things worry me. Num1, what about the custom background pics. I happen to really like that and I don't see it in the video. Also, that huge thing in the middle will cover up everything if they don't add a transparency option like the current UI has. Lastly, it looks like they are taking away the backgrounds but adding plenty of spaces for new ad locations. Which really upsets me.
Look at their xbox one new experience video on their youtube channel. It showes the custom backgrounds in the beginning.
As a preview member I want this update now not in the fall, the latest that acceptable is July 29. Make it happen MS .
So...you won't accept it if it's later?
Ms software UI is the best! What other console can give you BC, external HDD, snap, a preview program, Cortana, Skype, Windows 10 integration, etc?
Xbox one has the best first party games this holiday, best controller, best UI, best online experience, has true BC and MS doesn't charge people to play 360 games they own. Has EA access, has Early access to games. Has xbox one to PC streaming, has crossbuy on and on.
Its shaping up to be a great console. I'm very excited about the future of the Xbox One.
"has true BC" No it doesn't. It's a software emulator and you have to download the titles. It may amount to just as good as true BC if they do it right, but it's not "true BC".
So it's "false BC" then? You will truly be able to play games that you own on 360... Whether you own the physically or digitally... Because the Xbox one is now capable of running 360 games... Wether they are running natively or being emulated, whether they are run from the HDD, or not, 360 games will be compatible with the Xbox One this fall...
@mhunterjr, but 360 games WON'T be compatible. The 360 discs you purchased will not run natively on your One. Emulated modified digital editions of them will be released, which you will have access to download (or hopefully purchase if you never owned them). Words have meaning, and "true" BC implies hardware compatibility (which no console maker is gonna waste their time with anymore, and rightly so). Otherwise, by your logic, ALL BC is "true" BC.
Xbox is going all out this year it seems :)
I need this update in my life :(
No offence but that new UI, old UI looks much better, so much so that I wanted something similar on the Ps4, although was very slow & clunky. Way to ruin the UI
I don't mind the tiles of the current UI myself...
What in the blue hell is the person who wrote this article talking about? If I want to invite people to a game its not really all that different from 360. It has the invite player to party and game and in game invites. It usually takes as long as it takes the people to respond and join. I guess experiences vary but I haven't had any problem with this. I just finished Dying Light with 2 co op partners and it was a blast. Invite to party and game simple. Smh.
Not sure why no one has picked up on this, but where is my games & apps? how do we access all our installed games? There isn't a menu for this, nor a button on the side menu :-/
well they just announced it.. it may take some time for everyone's console to update correctly
Bad article due to personal opinion
Gaming "journalism" at its best. All you need is a opinion and a computer with Internet and your a journalist. They really blur the lines between journalism and the comment sections. Throw in a massive dose of full screen advertisements and your set.
