Major Nelson: "FYI: The timing for Xbox 360 dashboard update has been slightly delayed. I’ll have a status update later today".
Well it is a pretty big update however not all the features will be out today/tomorrow. They will be rolled out over December and early 2012.
Aye, it's just interesting that it's been delayed this close to launch. There was a similar issue with the last batch of GEars 3 DLC, it got an undefined delay then was released 2 hours later.
and when I didnt see the prompt, I played some voltron and rayman origin demos. I figured it would be rolled out later today but eh...delays happen.
More accurately, the apps for each service is being rolled out in December and so on. It's an ongoing process. The dashboard and all it's features are released today, hopefully. Based on what Major Nelson said, I'm assuming the roll out itself is delayed as they get all the systems ready for the massive amount of traffic. I have been in the beta/preview for some time and it's great. Looking forward to seeing you guys on beacon! :D
I have to agree with you I am part of the BETA and the new Dash is amazing the MS Metro UI is going go be a missive hit.
The dashboard is cool. im in the beta and the ufc app is awesome. they let me watch henderson vs shogun ppv for free but i dont like how ur friends will b offline sleeping with sheep jumping over their heads or sometimes they will be asleep holding a teddy bear. i hope they take that out
you obviously know it isnt representative of what they are really doing. That is MS just being funny. I hope they expand on that. Giving each one of your friends that are offline something different.
e-mail said delay untill tomorrow
It's a staggered update around the world, so each region will be receiving it at different times over the next 2-3 days or so to prevent server congestion. The first regions have received it now.
if i ever update my console only to be greeted by lady gaga's ugly ass staring back at me when i turn it back on, i'm throwing it out the window then pouring gas on it and setting it on fire.
I'd rather have it a tad later than any bit buggy. As long as its not more than a day, I dont mind. I think it might be the biggest dashboard/UI update Microsoft has done. Ppl with a kinect might acctually be able to use it more. Pointing at me. LOL. Anyway, Who cares about the dashoard. Where is My KARKAND? LOL
Karkand comes out for XBOX on Dec 13. Comes out for ps3 today though, cuz of that 1 week exclusivity deal or something..
laughing at the disagree there :) it's well known fact.
lol me too
i understand having and paying for timed excl dlc for a month ,few months or so. but 1 week? blow me
No seriously. To the 10 people who disagree that B2K comes out for Xbox on Dec 13th and today (dec 6)for ps3: are you guys just being terds for fun and disagreeing? Because if you're not, you guys are complete tards. If you own BF3 for 360, boot it up right now. Put in the multi/co-op disc, and when you get to the main menu, there's a little news feed that scrolls along a little box at the top of the screen. And what does it say? It sayd back to karakand will be available for download on December 13. Now, you might recall BF3 on ps3 getting the shaft on the promised free BF1943 download with a preorder. When EA/Dice decided not to give a free download of 1943, they instead guaranteed ps3 gamers that back to karkand would come a week early instead. That would be today.
next weak for bf3 for xbox
FunkMcnasty oh ok, cause of that they get it early. i believe they got screwed with that deal
I know Karkand is out on the 6th for PS3. That's why I said it. I own an Xbox and PS3. I'm too much of a gamer to not own every system.
now i got to check my Xbox
I wonder what the stats are for the gaming industry vs others when it comes to delays. Would be interesting to see.
Valve alone would out-delay the others.
I'd say Blizzard, but they don't delay, they just take forever to make a game. In my book, they just don't put out a release date until sure because they know they'd delay all of their games. Hell, I was in the WoW beta for almost a year, longest one I ever participated in.
I think the airlines would win if you add up the time for each delayed flight.
LMAO! Airlines are brutal.
well I have been part of the preview and all I can say is I love the new dash. Works well, is intuitive and easily navigated. New video partners are also welcome. I especially like the SyFy network channel app.
Yeah no more party viewing in Netflix Only thing I hate. Other than that its faster and more responsive.
I was wondering if that would make it to release. I didn't see that making it because it's a work around to Netflix's subscription service where only one person among a few had to have it.
Netflix do allow multiple people to stream from one account though. Heck I share one account with multiple people in my extended family. @AngelicIceDiamond I haven't used the "party viewing" in Netflix in recent time. Didn't know it was removed in the latest dashboard though?
@gamingdroid: Yeah, but that's through their subscription and you have to share your details. This is with people who are outside of your family and out of their control as well. Furthermore, this would allow sharing across state lines or possibly even countries since you share with anyone on your friends list. Something tells me that's not something they want to happen since it could result in lost potential of subscriptions and removes their ability to control such actions.
Yeah, I have been sharing with family members half across the country. Netflix hasn't cracked down on it yet.
i have the beta preview and was hopeful for the syfy specifically for battlestar gallactica and wwe smackdown but all the have are short clips and webisodes...oh well, maybe that will change down the road.
Haha, I am in the BETA program and have had the metro update for about a month now, its not at all in the slightest way buggy and is completely fresh all the way down to the sign in screen. unlucky for all you guys waiting for it :(
yeah some counter-piracy to do here and there and a few adjustments for kinect yeahhh ok.
Obviously have not used it^.
My prediction is that it releases at 3pm EST
u were wrong
Haaa....Hey I didn't say I was psychic, but man I wish I was right. Don't you??
Its 7:20 here and I still dont have it... wonder whats delaying it?
Is that picture a advertisement for Rise Of Nightmares? Oh wait, it's Lady GaGa, nevermind.
I love her to death.
Hope that was sarcasm, or you will be coming out of the closet in the near future.
HAHHHAHA DUDE YOU ARE A LEGEND! LADY GAGA LOOKS LIKE A FREAKING MONSTER THAT WOULD APPEAR IN THOSE SCREAMER PICTURES
I hope it comes out soon I am so ready to try my kinect out!
I've been involved in the beta for a few weeks and it's the best dashboard to date by a mile. So much snappier and easier to navigate to the important things... Also, with the new TV support/app support it really is making PSN look dated, although I can't help but think they are adding all these new features in line with their 'media' approach to the new Xbox in the next year or so..
moving away from the need to use a media center PC to watch TV on the 360. They are incorporating those features that media center edition has directly into the 360. That should improve performance when watching stuff streamed over the internet. ATT had an app for the 360 and Uverse users to use the 360 as a set top box for watching and recording shows. I wonder how this new approach with the dash and added media channels will effect that relation with ATT?
I am wondering why they lost all the news channels I liked to watch each day? All they have now is the fake news from the crappy Today show.
I GOT IT!!!!!
The only reason you would disagree is cause you turned on your Xbox hoping for an update, and got heart broken n burst to tears >:)
I disagreed because you are one of the few still clinging to that 1337 tag. I am assuming you wearing bib overalls backwards and think that people are rad too?
You know what I wanna see when I start my game system? A picture of Lady Gaga. Thank you so much Microsoft. Your system is grand.
Shut the f*ck up. You complaining-just-to-complain motherf*cker.
but still funny
@stiggs: Shut the f*ck up. Just because you wanna stare at Gaga, doesn't mean we do.
I couldn't care less if it was a picture of Whoopi Goldberg. It just doesn't effect me enough that I would bitch about it on an open forum. But that's just me...some people obviously have nothing better to do than whine about nonsense.
i will say gaga has a hot ass body. but id only look at her naked from behind though :)
@stiggs, ever see the internet meme "first world problems?" I believe Feldman's comment would be a perfect fit for on of those, now only to find a picture to accompany it.
You are trying way too hard, even by childish trolling standards. Thanks for playing. Goodbye.
You are obviously a troll you only have a PSN id on your profile and your bashing already go on somewhere. Your just mad because the XMB sucks dick and it never gets an update.
Wow that's pretty pathetic you would go so low as to bash the Xbox FOR A F***ING ADVERTISEMENT LOLOLOLOL!!! I mean seriously..it'll go away in a day or two we probably won't see it.
*Update* Major Nelson has just tweeted that the update will start rolling out in the next couple of hours. No word on what caused the issue though. Still, good news!
It's rolling out now

"Sorry for the dash launch delay. Good news: first set of customers will be getting the Xbox LIVE update within the next few hours." That's from Major Nelson 44 minutes ago.. I cant wait for that update to hit Wisconsin! :D
