I'm always scared when they do a major overhaul to the dashboard. I know I will get use to it eventually, but the current one is fantastic.

The current one is fine although I find it to hide the awesome backgrounds I set and I think this one opens it up a bit. Plus, if they found a way to make faster and more reliable just by better coding then I'm all for it.

UnHoly_One37d ago

This one does not "open it up". It covers FAR more of the background. The entire bottom 1/3 of the screen is covered, for instance.

ElementX37d ago

Pffft, backgrounds. Why are you looking at backgrounds when you should be gaming?

This generation has been defined by; if it ain't broke fix the crap out of it.

I don't care what it looks like at this point, I just want it to be nice and smooth like the PS4 UI. The Xbox One apps are so slow. Anyone ever use the UFC app on there? Oh man ... trash ...

SpaceRanger38d ago

Isn't it sad that this question is asked every time that they do it?

I really think this has been a fundamental evolution since the misstep at launch. I'm really hoping this is the one that sticks and we can just see slight iterations moving forward.

At least they get regular updates and you can also enroll in the insider club to be a beta tester.

Is that your dig at Nintendo or something? MS is the only console who changes their dashboard because of lack of appeal and clutter.

"Is that your dig at Nintendo or something?"

No, wasn't even thinking about Nintendo.

"MS is the only console who changes their dashboard because of lack of appeal and clutter."

It's funny, people go after me about my views on their competition yet nobody seems to say boo about you guys complaing about everything to do with MS/Xbox. The dash used to be slow and they actually listen to feedback which is why they have the Insider Program, it's more than just your standard stability updates.

neolego37d ago

I agree that Microsoft has done a great job improving the dashboard. Sure, they have made some changes, but I feel like every change has brought benefits to it's player base.

Septic37d ago

Is it sad that they are working towards 'perfecting' the dash?? Makes no sense. They are actually bothering with the dash unlike others whose equivalent are far from perfect or anywhere near as good imo.

SpaceRanger37d ago

"...unlike others whose equivalent are far from perfect or anywhere near as good imo."

Oh defensive are we lol that's fine if it's in your opinion. The collective opinion is that people bought their consoles to play games and just want a functional, organized and appealing UI to get to their games quickly. They've yet to achieve that since they continually change it.

But anyway, if you think they're "perfecting" by placing non-gaming ads and pushing Mixer in the UI...well, to each his own.

andrewsquall37d ago

Again, what is your beef with Nintendo and their dashboards guys???

Microsoft will never be satisfied with Xbox UI

MadPandaSkills37d ago (Edited 37d ago )

Ever iteration is worse than the last. I still like the Blade and 360 NXE better than anything they’ve released this generation on Xbox One.

MatrixxGT37d ago

The blades worked but its outdated now. I dont understand how hard it is to just make a clean UI. I hate the current UI . Its so damn cluttered, not everhond cares about mixer streams.

GamingIVfun36d ago

I personally think the Xbox One UI Is a mess, sure they add new features but the ease of use gets worse with each iteration.

RiPPn37d ago

Tried to watch the video but the James guy voice is awful.. doesn't have a voice for podcasting.
