Just got it about an hour ago, tried it out early but man, one thing to say...

Quickest Update in History, not even 3 minutes and I was already making my avatar.

Did you notice how smooth all the transitions between menus are? No load times to display pictures etc. Awesome!
Montrealien  +   2112d ago
yeah, the main thing I wanted from this update was to not wait 1 minute for all my arcade games to load, so much faster now, love it!
jaysquared  +   2112d ago
Impressive!
I was skeptical about this whole NXE thing because I was pretty satisfied with the dashboard but after downloading it and playing with it a little bit its so much better than the dashboard! The avatars are pretty gay though but everything else is a big improvement from the dashboard. Its a lot better looking and more organized. Updates like this makes me feel better about paying $50 a year for XBL! Great job M$!

It's ok... Nothing very interesting in it though. The most interesting aspect of it, Netflix, is nowhere to be found in Europe so this update basically boils down to a skin change for a user like me who doesn't care about the community part of Live. I really like the fact that its more responsive though.

PS: I hate my avatar, and all avatars.

Why does every guy avatar on NXE look like hes gay or has been nude on camera before! They all stand funny! :-( aside from that I guess its a good upgrade

look at all the people here enjoying this.

A year ago they were saying ''Home is for losers who have no life''

There goes their credibility.

Anyway, I've always thought that these things can never be bad so it's a great update

"where to enter redeem codes"

Guide>Marketplace>Redee m Code.

@topgeareasy

"no sony films on netflix"

Who cares? Its sony's loss. Netflix isnt going to let Sony try and screw Netflix's customers for long. This is Sony shooting itself in the foot -- and, is probably going to attract the anti-competitive / monopoly regulators and DOJ. There are laws against this kind of anti-competitive behaviour.

@y0haN
What are you talking about? 3D avatars that look like PEOPLE arent new or unique to Nintendo. Secondly, Avatars are vastly more customizeable and varied than Miis. You clearly havent created an Avatar.

The bottom line: NXE is another EPIC victory for MS. I've already used PhotoParty with some of my family, they loved it.

Sure, you go ahead and blow off money on a system that apparently is better yet uses its "Large Memory" to create flop titles...really only thing you get worth the money is a Blu-Ray player..so much for the extra $200.

You get what you pay for right? You want to spend 200$ on a cheap ass console? That's what you get..a cheap ass console.

Or you could buy a whole media centre for 400$ Tough choice.

Not bad at all
Very slick and very responsive. There is a lot of backtracking in the menus however. Other than that, the avatars still suck (even after creating one), but it is a fast process. Good job MS! Still a little too Nintendo-ish and not as sophisticated as the XMB, but an awesome improvement over the blades. There are ads everywhere though.

Try clicking the right trigger while you have the avatar in front of you. Now try moving the right trigger in different directions while clicking. ;)
cherrypie  +   2112d ago
Not as sophisticated as XMB?

Huh? There's a lot more "going on" in NXE than XMB, more animation, better organization, navigation and features.

NXE is vastly superior to the UI on Wii or PS3. Not to mention the *featuers* -- which really put NXE way out front.
rev20  +   2112d ago
I quite like it although the avatars are just as crap as i imagined haven't tried installing a game yet may try that in a little while.
cherrypie  +   2112d ago
What is so "crap" about the Avatars?

They are 3D people -- no more, no less. They are a superior implementation than currently in the market. And they will be used to "embody" the player in games (like Kingdom for Keflings (which, is pretty good actually)).

They are excellent in fact. Good move by MS. They are more customizeable, more refined and more varied than previous implementations. And, in the future, you know that they will become varied based on Achievements and Medals.

Also, for as sleek as it all looks, why does what the guide button bring up look so dull and boring?

Holy Shiznet! The NXE Kicks Ass!
I just downloaded the NXE. I'm telling you... it's sick as f*ck.

I expected this new update to be lame as hell. Avatars, right? Wack huh. But I tried them out, made my own little badass, and what do ya know, it's not so bad after all. The intro video after downloading blew me away. I felt like it was the N64 days all over again. Well, more so I felt like I was on mushrooms.

Originality is what best describes this update. It's smooth, efficiant, and totally appealing. I hope Sony's Home does good, I really do. I'm not going to be all Xbox-this, Xbox-that anymore. If Home does as good as the NXE, all hardcore gamers will have something be happy about.

The naysayers will say the nay but I'll still know what's real. The NXE prevailed, and I hope PS3 fans are left with something kickass in Home as well.

No dude. It's ok. Just do it!!!
PirateThom  +   2112d ago
Nope, seems to be fine. Haven't heard any problems anyway.

Anyway, quick review, I feel the same indifference I did to it before the update though. It's just an interface change, some for the better, some for the worse. I personally think the blades were better. To be honest though, none of the added features even benefit me, party modes and Netflix are pretty much useless for me. I basically got a redesigned dashboard which I'm indifferent to and avatars which I think are lame as all hell.

As for avatars, the customisation choices are kind of limited, so my Avatar just looks like some yuppie, which is really not what I was going for.
mcgrawgamer  +   2112d ago
@ pirate
it wasn't me who gave you a disagree, though I do. I like everything about the NXE including the avatars.

but I do realize with as much grief I've seen you give msft from other comments on this site I can assume that's about the best compliment MSFT will ever get from you :)
Bladestar  +   2112d ago
...
@mcgrawgamer -sadly he he has turn into another DJ/Microsoft hater and will always complain about the xbox 360 no matter what.

His comments about Netflix and specially the party system tell you what kind of player he is. You can tell he is obviously a Sony fan... Disconnected player that mostly play single player games and do not understand the value of being able to organize groups where you can voice chat with up to 8 friends and carry them over to play the same matches with other people online.. instead of playing with your friends without being able to speak to them, having to invite them one at a time or voice chat where everyone can hear what you and your friends are saying.

As a PS2 fan that never owned an original xbox I can tell you... it's very hard to understand what you are missing until become more than just a single player gamer my most PS3 owners are. They get excited because they "are playing online." though they it becomes a problem if you want to communicate and invites various people.
I remember a friend of mine that love Metal Gear online for the PS2... because he could "play online"... I would tell him... how do you enjoy this? Those guys can be bots and you wouldn't tell..

Thats almost as ridiculous. your gamertag is stored on LIVE.

If your machine was stolen, you'd still keep your gamertag.
Animal Mutha 76  +   2112d ago
OMG I've been wii'd on
Just my opinion..

Liking the update. Took no time at all. Menus are crisp and bright with lots of artwork everywhere. It looks a lot more pro overall. The pop up blade section is a bit dull and could have been made a bit sharper - otherwise so far so good. Nice one MS. I agree with comments above about the lots of back tracking in menus which can get many levels deep. Is there a one button return to root menu?

Can't be bothered to install a game yet as I have 2 machines and the disc loading or noise has never been and issue with a decent 5.1 setup.

I have to say that the 'avatar program' which is obviously a little seperate application is soooooooooo cheesy with its kiddy music and really is tring to be the Wii I have downstairs. (I bet the missus will like it though). Not really suiting my seasoned gamer attitude, Having said that I look forward to seeing some comedy avatars in the near future like on the Wii. I want mine to look like captain kirk in his mutton chop burner phase.

So my first impressions are a thumbs up (apart from the cheesy thing).

Progress FTW!

What an update. Not bad for a Nintendo twin.
Well as Sony fanboy i must say that M$ sure knows how to put up a fight. First this update was ridiculously FAST! This could only mean they must be using a new type of flash base code. Anyway the NXE really ads life to the xbox360 like botox to a celebrity. Really shiny and tight looking. But i really like the way it operates. Kudos to M$ and the no longer Xbots but the now to be known Xii fanboys. Enjoy for now. I am a Home beta tester and trust me thats the Real 3D!

Nintendo Twin? Sorry but the NXE makes the Wii look even more out of date and now has the garbage XMB looking even more like a dried boring flat turd.

MS just dropped kicked PSN and whatever they call that non-existant Wii network.

I understand you are here because you know it as well and are mentioning things like that sorry ass Home application which is not even the same thing as the NXE. XMB = NXE not Home. Home is a second life rip-off that even does that poorly and yes I have complete access to the beta in all it's jerky, lagged out splendor.

It's not a TV setting, go to your video options in the console settings area.

Also if you've tagged tha tinput with 'PC' or something you might want to change the tag to 'game' or something else. I noticed that when i changed my HDMI to 'PC' it forced a setting on me, i changed it to hd dvd [for a laugh] and got my settings back.
