Director of Program Management, Xbox and Windows Platform Mike Ybarra gave some more information about Windows 10 on Xbox One, also talking about some of the goodies waiting Microsoft fans in the near future.
"The team has spreadsheets with comparison data on how long it takes to execute tasks on Xbox 360, on Xbox One today and with the new Xbox One experience. With some features, it’s 50% faster and easier to get things going." Great, I've never thought it was slow but I won't complain if it's lightning fast.
Something are pretty slow for me... especially anything involving snap (starting a party, sending an invite etc) It wasn't unforgivably slow, but noticeably slower than on 360... I'm extremely excited about the update.
I hear you, at first my X1 was lightning quick, but lately certain apps have been noticeably laggy and even crash while in use, so I'm really looking forward to the update
A lot of the speed issues people have is related to their internet. For a snappy experience with the Xbox One OS, you need a low latency connection. This is going to be one sweet dashboard update. MS kicks it out of the ballpark again. Hard to see how one can resist the Xbox One at this point. Stellar game lineup, monthly feature updates, new massive dashboard with Windows 10/OneCore, DX12, cross-buy/play, backwards compatibility, BC Xbox 360 games that work on Xbox One with GwG free, free Xbox 360 games with pre-order, and cloud technology for Crackdown 3 next year. Amazing in my opinion and nobody else is close to providing this on their platform!
My 360 is super slow for me but its directly related to the size of the profile. My wifes is lightning quick with her like 1000 gamerscore but mine is over 100k and it takes a good 3 to 4 minutes just to sign in.
@donthate X1 interface is bit slow at times and has nothing to do with internet connections... Are you kidding me? lol and wow at that level of damage control. Either way great news that it will now be improved.
@donthate The issues I'm talking about have nothing to do with my internet connect... Which is about as good as it gets....
I have always found my Xbox one to be much faster than my 360. Having said that I generally don't use snap, I just press home and load the item I want from the screen. I have a curiosity as to whether you run your programs from the drive on the Xbox one or an external drive. All of my programs are installed externally to a fast usb 3 drive, so I wonder if this has made a difference, it certainly sped up install times.
@Captain_TomAN94 Id say the console is fine, but your comment is garbage
The Internet speed isn't the problem I have the fastest Internet time warner has to offer. For instance putting a game in for the first time took literally 25 to 30 minutes. A physical disc. To me that isn't something to overlook seeing that ANY CONSOLE EVER has never taken this long for a disc to load up. But I guess that's something we'll say is forgivable or not that bad...but turn around and complain about how long it takes the Xbox one to boot up from a cold boot...smh So I'm glad something might be done about this after 2 years. Also the ESPN has super lag in it too. I hope this will help that it's the main thing I use my xbox for.
@Kingthrash360 Whaaat! Are you meaning the install time? if so, you are correct, its actually a lot quicker to digitally download the game (I have a 150mg Fibre connection so I guess that helps too), I only have 2 games on disk, I download all my games now as its just a lot quicker than installing from disk (usb 3.0, 3TB external HD). Hopefully they improve it with the new update but to be honest I quite enjoy not needing the disk, its sooo satisfying when playing a game and then once I've had my fill of it, "Xbox go to Killer Instinct" and bam! i'm straight in there Ultra combos galore!.
if your xbox one is being slow try trick #9 on this video. It might or miht not help https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I really like the sound of this part. "The new Xbox One experience is also very different for developers, that will be able to directly communicate with users announcing patches, calling votes on features and so forth."
@all the XB1 is so slow comments It's because XB1 was designed to run Win10, not the current OS with all its patches which is slower now than at launch.
hahaha....disagrees....this place is too funny...
Although the OS is also faster, I believe (based off of what was said in other interviews) the speed of getting things done they're talking about is overhauling the UI so doing common tasks requires less steps and menus
Wow, loving the name. 'Onecore', very sharp. The screenshot looks great, keeping what I loved about current UI but improving it and rearranging a few things to make it super fast. 50% faster on some apps (Hopefully that include Achievements and Friends, they could do with a speed boost). Looking great, hopefully with Windows 10, Xbox will get a lot more PC games quickly and easily ported across in less then a few days for the dev. Should do wonders to bolster the game library. I always feel like Xbox has something in the future that will better the console. First it was all the functionality they added in the first year, then there's DX12, then there's windows 10, then there's cloud compute, then Hololens, who knows what else they've got in store. Very glad to be an Xbox owner right now (P.S No, I'm not saying these things are any kind of secret sauce, just glad to see them making the console, games and the general experience better)
Hell yeah...what you said!
For reals... This looks fantastical all around. Can't wait to go hands on with it.
Sounds like the one is trying to be a PC
Really? Considering PCs just got an xbox app, I'd say it's the other way around... either way, both platforms are better with Win10.
I think making the console more like a PC is a good thing. If it could run full fledged Windows 10 with the desktop and keyboard and mouse support it would become the best and most popular budget PC on the market. The more MS uses all of its branches to support and enhance each other the better position it will be in
Cant wait to try it out.
The best OS on console just got a heck lot better. This loOKs great!
Really excited for the NXE. I remember in 2008 for the 360 they overhauled everything from the "Blades UI" and I loved that. This update looks way better and cleaner than the current layout.
Ahhhh. The Blades UI. What a mess that was.
I didn't mind the Blades but I do think the 360 NXE improved it vastly. Anytime I see a video with the Blades in it the nostalgia from the Halo 3 release window takes over. The early 360 days were amazing. I'd love to relive the old community of then
They actually kept the blades system as the pop up menu on the 360. I didn't mind blades either. It too reminds me of the early 360 days. Battlefield 2 modern combat anyone?
Blades were awesome, super simple and no ads or any of that crap. The xbox started up faster since the marketplace was a seperate load screen rather than something you had to load every time you turned it on.
Just in time for Fall's heavy hitters. It almost feels like getting a new console.
Sweet can't wait .
------------------------------ -----------------^^^^^ just so sad that even an individual excitement gets Disagrees . lol
Im not condoning this practice, but people can disagree with you opinion. What if some one can wait?
I agree, it's very sad, I don't get why people do it. @kiwiViper85 I would agree with you if he was speaking for everyone but he was speaking for himself. He didn't state an opinion, he stated his own feelings.
Well theres no rules for agrees and disagrees everyone please to use it as they see fit which isnt very much to begin with unlike the bubble system.
I get it everyone is excited but let's hold off on the compliments until we've experienced it. All this noise about DX12 and MS barely shows off their exclusive DX12 game Fable Legends. Don't get your hopes up too high. Remember PSHome. This must be a huge change because they are going out their way to make these huge announcements. I hope these high alerts don't turn into a high failure rate. With that being said they should open up to everyone as soon as possible to knock the kinks out early as possible. We need more video sharing options to link videos to social networks. We need more features. 50% I scuff at that if thats the max the average is 37%. Not impressive at all. Let's hold out on the compliments until it's in the wild.
What are you even trying to get at? If the 360 is anything to judge by then this update will be a really great improvement. Are you just salty because Xbox One is getting a huge overhaul and PS4 is not? I normally don't respond to this blather but you are literally so pessimistic on something Microsoft excels at, software.
@Paytaa.. If the 360 is anything to judge by then this clearly ain't the 360 if it launched with features missing that the 360 had. Recently during a interview a former Xbox boss revealed that the 360 team is not behind the Xbox one. All I'm saying we have no idea how much better or worst Win10 is on X1 but people are already praising it. Chill out.
@B1uBurneR Well it's obvious MS wants to outdo it's predecessor and no I'm so angry at you! How could you say such things?! Sorry can't control myself on N4G. I'll try and chill out.
Give it a rest jeez.
The dx12 thing it's a farce they said the same thing with the 360 last gen sand nothing changed
DX12 isn't even meant for X1. It's meant for PC, which isn't a farce. And I don't recall 360 being promoted with a new gpu api.
"they said the same thing with the 360 last gen and nothing changed" When was this? Lmao XD @ChickeyCantor "And I don't recall 360 being promoted with a new gpu api." Exactly.
Isn't PS4 still waiting on the ability to appear offline?
I've played Fable legends and U gotta say its pretty good.
Xbox one might as well just be a PC. Everything the Xbox one is trying to do does on PC. Just focus on games Microsoft, don't have to make your console a PC to be great
Lol. Your comment seems quite ignorant. Do you own an xbox360?if you do you'd understand that these xbox one updates are just an evolution of what was done on xbox 360. MS is a world class software/os developer. They own the Windows OS (same os which the xbox one runs on).upgrading the hardwares os to the latest iteration makes perfect sense. This OS update comes with all the improvements needed to make the console much more efficient. This has nothing to do with turning the xbox one into a PC and besides this doesnt affect inflow of games as the os team is very different from the game studios infact they have an amazing lineup of games this fall and going into next year. Edit Yup. I get what you're saying and if you think about it every smart device aims to be like the PC in terms of functionality and the xbox one is actually no different. Its a big plus for xbox gamers though and these updates are most welcome. :)
Yes I do. I actually own all the consoles. All I'm saying its starting to feel more like a PC the more it evolves. I actually think that's a good thing. But I can see where you think its an ignorant comment.
It is an ignorant comment because it is not trying to be like a PC. They are trying to make the entire performance of the console better, that includes games. It seem you have not been paying attention all year. If you own the console you should be happy that they are improving the console. Improvements should always be welcome, unless they end up making things worst. But I don't see how it is becoming anymore like a PC than it already was.
AquarianKing Your ignorance stating they should just focus on games? Either you are trolling or your head is in the ground they have been focusing on games since launch! If you deny they haven't released so many great games and so many coming this holiday you are just trolling...
The thing is, we're going into a direction where consoles are trying to closely mirror what PCs do. It's been going on for years now. It's just how the evolution of the console is going. As new consoles increase the power, there's a lot more options.
I am excited. Always enjoyed how the UI for Xbox Consoles evolves over time in such a drastic fashion. Almost like getting a new console every year.
... Every other week is a new secret sauce article with a percent sign attached to it. Did you know every generation ever console gets advancements as the software progresses? The only difference is the ones that are inferior or are hard to work with use those as talking points as they are all fighting an uphill battle. Even the wii see's updates that increase the system and as well as the PS4. Enjoy the sauce I'd tell you whats in it but its a secret... (It's actually just bullpoop in a bowl)
just been messing about with xbox one to windows 10 streaming and its pretty impressive, very smooth and almost lag free with some visual downgrade due to bandwidth. i think this will be xbox ones answer to share play on ps4 but without a time limit (wich is a pain if your just getting into a game) reading a few comments i think its hilariously sad that the playstation camp are commenting on an xbox only article.
@ musik..."remote play" on ps4 has no time limit and works over the internet Lolol. Xbox doesn't have an answer to share play as of yet.
""and works over the internet"" that is debatable haha, but technically yes.
true but remote play you need a ps vita, you can use a mobile/tablet but only some games work with that.
The Xbone is becoming a truly amazing machine. MS deserve alot of credit. The haters need to get over themselves.
Guess that confirms that Win 10 on X1 has decreased its resources to only needed One Core to operate? That's pretty damn good, guess that 7th CPU Core will be put to good use in future games.
Good to see Xbox One get better and better! We're going thru historic gaming history right now folks!
Wow. Some features are as much as 50% faster than the 360... Sorry if I'm not excited for that.
what number would "excite" you ? ( I bet there isn't one )
50% faster than previous operations on the Xbox One would excite me. Apps running on this console shouldn't be sluggish. I'm sorry I refuse to eat the shit Microsoft feeds me and then get all happy when I find a peanut in the shit. It's still shit.
As long as it remains faster than the ps4 still it's all good
But it's not.
Windows 10 OS for game!!! No,Thank you!!
