Back at it again with another interface.
Every system needs major firmware updates
Agree. No sure what's the point the author is trying to make here.
I don't see why upgrades should ever become unnecessary for any platform LOL
The site isnt talking about just a firmware/system update, they are talking about a completely new UI redesign. And i agree, its not necessary.
XB1 is my main system but I would rather they refine what we currently have rather than doing this massive overhaul... I like things as they are now... I guess I'm in the minority though.
@Wikkid666 - Yes... it is actually the same thing. https://techterms.com/defin...
MS tends to be more of the belief that if it isn't working, they should just redo it from scratch, unless they can resll it as something new with nothing more than what should be an update, and usually screw things up more until they get it right for a while.
I can agree I use all my systems equally. I don't spend all my time on one so it takes me longer to get all the bells and wistles down pat. So when I get used to a UI and they change it it's annoying. I liked the original XB1 UI I'm not saying they can't change it just give me the option to keep the current.
LOL!!! Firmware????? It's a system update.
Same thing brah.
@GamerFanboi Not the same thing at all BRAH!
Why not ... It's not hard ... Wake up and it's done.
It’s not just an update it’s a complete UI redesign....again. People didn’t even have time to get use to the last UI redesign and now comes another one. Crazy if you ask me.
Really? Everything is in the guide though.... It's easy, simple and efficient
Why would you want to stick with an UI which is slower and less efficent overall? Plus, this new major update focus on Xbox One X, Xbox One S, Xbox One and PC as an more unified family system. :)
That's not what its about though. We all know about the "wake up and its done" thing since PS Plus launched over 7 years ago and the PS3 would update your system software itself and all your games too when you weren't even there. The problem is that when you "wake up" your stuff is going to be all over the place where you can't find it yet again and for the millionth time this gen too. Pity they can't adopt PlayStation's style of nailing the UI the first time at the start of the gen. Remember the "blades" on 360 hahaha?
Stealth troll. You act concerned but why would you be, you hate Xbox.
Go away troll
The Playstation UI is garbage and has no Soul! Wheres as Xbox UI usually has a better social and entertainment aspect. And its not boring.. So yeah I like Xbox UI and anything to make it better..bring it on.
Dude, the PS4s UI is a joke, it's rubbish, a poorly designed mess. To see what I have downloading, demos, games in the sale etc, we now have to go to Notifications, then press the Options button on the controller, scroll down to Downloads and then we can see our downloads. WHAT THE ACTUAL ????? That is such a convoluted method of just seeing what you're downloading, awful design. The Downloads tab/option/marker whatever you want to call it was just listed under Notifications until a few updates back. Excuse my ignorance if there is an easier way to check out your downloads, if there is what is it? and can you "pin" things to the dashboard like you can on the XB? That would help navigating the UI loads.
The X1's UI is garbage and i should know because i own one. Its slow, clunky and a complete mess! But even still, I am not looking forward to a complete UI redesign, to have to get used to how things work all over again. Completely unnecessary.
My biggest gripe with my Pro is the UI.its a mess especially now with the way you have to do extra work to clear notifications. You have obviously not spent any time with any Xbox as even the old blade system was quicker than the Sony UI
Microsoft is trying to give something that will be well accepted, so far they failed miserably.
I personally preferred the first one. And all are a huge improvement over the ps4 folder system.
Better? More features? More Organised? Easier Access? Ok. But there will always be people who don't like change.
What's not t like.The dash is now customizable so people can change it to whatever they do like
Just make up your mind already! The new ui does look good though 😃
It's pretty dam good so far. Anything that improves the platform makes it worth while.
The new UI is much more responsive and snappy. the new mini-guide is reminiscent of the 360 guide. While i am not a fan of the new layout, the ability to customize or not as you see fit is great. I really do not like the minimalist feel. Also the ability to add a user to your home screen, and see all their activity is very stalker like to me. i wish there was a way to block this ability
If they gunna do it, I'd rather it rolled out now and tested, so there's not a day one system/UI patch for the OneX with potential bugs and glitches I suppose.
Updates are needed, but if you're just complaining about the interface, that is more subjective. I think they're trying to innovate as much as possible to keep people interested.
Much better than PS4's boring same since ps3 design.
Are you playing ui!
Yeah, PlayStation 4 UI is quite slow from inviting people to your party to sending messages.
Absolutely, XBONE is a hot mess and anything that will make it better is always needed.
It needs to ditch Windows 10.
Yes, it does need as many updates as Microsoft deems necessary to improve the platform. Totally fine with the updates, as I prefer the Xbox ui to the Playstation, so keep em coming MS, mine auto updates, while in sleep mode, so what is the big deal other than just to bash MS? What is the point to this article?
When I watched the major Nelson reveal. I was like again?! I went and told my wife we both laughed because it is always changing. I love the simplicity of the PlayStation bar. Nothing fancy just what I want and quick access no convoluted pressing of buttons. The whole family hates the current Ui for Xbox.
