The latest Xbox dashboard update with its metro user interface might be packing some welcoming heat, but there are a few changes that need to be addressed especially if it's to be adopted for Xbox next.
I also hope Microsoft, can make their "XBLA" easier to interact with, and a new system... it's not because it's a huge failure, but because it's not so organized.. And maybe check Terms and agrees to be eaiser for indie devs to publish their game there, i had quite some issues on publishing my game with my dev team
They have to let indie devs put there games on it without publishers because on WiiWare and 3DSWare indie devs don't need publishes and I am sure it will be the same with the Wii U. MS can lose a lot of indie support because of this.
Assuming they stick with a similar layout to Metro, they could really do with intergrating the apps into the actual Dashboard, as opposed to having to launch apps. More seamless experience is all I want, and the ability to utilize bing search in Apps to search for titles in Lovefilm, Netflix, Youtube etc. Currently bing search can only be used on the bing page of the main Dashboard.
I want it to look alot more futuristic, minority report style. We can scroll like that with the kinect, so a nice semi transparent green and other little touches would be nice. Although the UI isnt bland, I the look is though.
I would like for the tabs to be customized. In my opinion the second tab after Home should be Games then Social then whatever. Would also love it if some of the apps like iheart radio and lastfm would run in the background while your playing a game or browsing through the dashboard. Where are the Xbox originals?
Better themes would be nice
