Kotaku: When Kinect is released in November, Microsoft will update the Xbox 360's dashboard to make better use of the controller. This is what that dash will look like, and if you think it's familiar, that's because it is.
Oh, I thought this dashboard was only when you plugged Kinect in?
Because it looks a lot like this one
Not only is M$ trying to get the the Wii audience, it looks they are trying to turn the 360 into the Wii XD
With motion control it's the simplest way to do it. That or you'd be swiping all day. That will get old fast. The Wii missed out on the op to be it's own Wii HD. You would be crazy not to try to profit on that.
i don't know who you are or what you think but that's a straight up wii interface rip-off
I prefer the current dashboard, honestly.
My old dash back... But I may be the only one.
Old dash wasn't bad either. I'd go for that one or the current one. Don't care for the one shown at today's conference. Not that I spend a lot of time using the dashboard, though...
Who disagreed with Darknikon? It's so obvious MS is just trying to repackage the 360 as the Wii/PS3 clone. It's so pathetic that they can't seem to form their own identity. They resort to stealing from the other two.
Thanks for pointing that out. It really does look that way. It all seems so crazy after watching their conference. It's almost as if they wanted to announce that they were making a PSWii hybrid.. PS3 hardware (shiny, touch, quiet, internal HDD, etc) Wii software (Wii Menu, Wii-like games, even the names of their Kinect games) I'm not saying it's bad. I mean, if the Wii is selling so much and the PS3 managed to sell well after such a hefty price tag, they both must be doing something right. It's that the whole thing looks so blatantly obvious.
Is this a new xbox dash bored again
And this one joined just three hours ago. It's like Christmas for the PS3 fanboys.
Microsft should just stick to one >.< As soon as I get used to the new one there we go. Its whatever though i spend like not even a minute on the dashbpard its all about the games :)
They should give you the choice to go back to the old blade dash it was 10X easier and less of a mess compared to the one now
Now the NXE is just bombarded with Axe ads and advertisements for Ozzy and MW2.
I like the NXE Better. Seems more "Flickable", which would be like the main reason I buy Kinect.
lol Apparently everyone disagrees.
I mainly am gonna get kinect just for this. Strolling through the dashboard minority report style is so effinhg cool
Looks like the XMB's "Whats New" section. :|
The article says its only when Kinect is in use. And even then you can go back to the normal dash.
way to ditch your consumers MS, remember who got you where you are in the first place
I'm not sure where you're coming from. They haven't abandoned anyone, just expanded their audience.
great another update, good thing that this update don't remove features
Are you referring to the removal of the Other OS on the PS3? Don't you think that your fanboyism enables the PS3 fanboys to act like dicks? Why don't you just fucking stop, and then maybe they will fucking stop?
SOAD its easy for people to be dicks so STFU
bring back blades, they were so easy to use.
i actually like the blades a lot too and found it easier to use. NXE looks really snappy and nice but I feel it's bloated. I hope this new dashboard doesn't replace nxe. UIs should look great and feel intuitive. They shouldn't be convoluted.
Hmm It will be smoother if you think about it, but whats up with the heads on the avatars shrinking?
I love the new dashboard. It looks well, cooler. but I hope they give us the ability to change the color scheme for the icons and stuff.
I enjoyed everything about ms showing i dont know why all the hate has surfaced kinect will be great for family games may get the relatives to play as the buttons turn them off controls they are allways scared to learn the layouts congrats ms i loved it.
You can't please them all.
Haven't we seen something like this on the Wii and on the PS3 with that orange information area. I feel that they should bring back the orginal blades. Seems like everytime they try to add more...feels like I have to hunt harder to find new content. For example, the Transformers Cybertron Wars game is hiding in the demo section. But just flipping through you may never know about it. With old blades, I never had problems finding the latest new stuff out.
