Quick hands-on with the Xbox One dashboard and app snapping.
Added a second video with Killer Instinct and actual IE.
The whole snap feature looks real smooth based on this video
so is this pretty much what vita does? put apps in background and bring up something else
lol ps vita lol don't put what ms is doing with their os and vita in the same category. MS is onto something bigger by a mile.. Other note, Snap feature is coming on nicely.
He's going in and out of Battlefield 4 with no lag. Looks responsive but this is usually a department Microsoft excels in. I'm a PS fanboy and even I know this.
All those disagreeing have not seen PS Vita. This thing is exactly what Vita does. Check out vita before you disagree.
^ It's not only vita. It's a feature within all smart devices. That was Microsoft's goal, to bring snap feature to console where there can be constant updates and apps for Xbox One. So potential for some very unique features will be developed for Xbox One. I see your guys real intention in trying to compare this to ps vita. This is something fairly innovative for console. EDIT: Looking real good! I had expected noticeable lag, but boy it looks very smooth even in it's early stage.
Childish troll enjoy tnose disagrees your seriously are butthurt
Sweet. Can't wait for Nov 22nd.
WOW this looks sweet. Can not wait till i collect my XBO at midnight launch. Sony remove MP3 then add it again but it is not classed as a 180 but classed as "Listening to the consumer", Yet everything microsoft does is a 180 because they want your money. Scum of the gaming world comes to mind on this one.
MP3 and DLNA compatibility was never implemented in the first place according to Shuhei Yoshida. So it's not really a 180, just a dumb business move. https://twitter.com/yosp/st...
Hmmm. It's easy being selective, isn't it? Xbox fanboys used indie games as a bullet point for the 360. Sony makes the initiative to increase their indie support for PS4, Xbone has no indies out until some time in 2014 due to their godawful policies. Indies are now all crap and not important because it's a PS4 strength. Xbox fanboys picked out the negligible differences between PS3/360 multiplats as a bullet point for the 360. Sony releases stronger PS4 hardware, multiplats are shown to run with an output increase of 50% in favour of PS4 (better resolution, a more stable frame rate, more AA and more detail). Developers and industry folk point out the lifelong ESRAM bottleneck which hinders performance due to Microsoft's multimedia OS design focus. It's no longer important, or no one can really tell the difference anyway, because it's a PS4 strength. Xbox fanboys defend and apologise for an anti-consumer corporation on its bad industry decisions and practices, saying they want the DRM, to not own their games, and screw anyone else who is not compatible with that mindless anal acceptance. Contrast Sony fans on N4G, Twitter etc. showing angst at Sony, and don't bend over and apologise for their MP3 DLNA support issue. Yeah... scum of gaming world... Mirror, meet joe90.
Yes because sony said they were never going to put MP3 or DLNA in there lols it was just not originally included...
Looks neat and it is coming along nicely. But its about time MS showcased this.
I had a hard time believing that mock-up vid was real but hot damn MS have done well here.... It's even faster than the mockup vid tbh. Dat 10% GPU/2 cores :)
Whoops! looks like that rumor about the OS problems was BS. Now sony fans go and dig up some more BS. Didn't mean to reply to youb @ Kayant
Just to note there are two rumours one about snap causing games to crash which seems false based on this vid & OS stuff in terms of XBL functions ( match making, invites) which can't be tested yet ---> http://doddscientifics.com/... Either way I don't think it will come out to be true as these are MS's bread & butter.
since u asked for it 150 sec video doesn't proof anything, for all we know it may crashed on him like 10 time before he manage to get this 150 sec of footage -food for thoughts-
There you go black0o http://www.youtube.com/watc... 3 mins of action and connected to the internet. At the 1:07 mark it goes to N4G. WTF else can you people say? It's pathetic now...really it is. @thehitman If every vid showing the OS working is useless, but you take the word of "insiders" that haven't presented one shred of visual evidence to back their claims then that's you. Actions speak louder than words...clearly things aren't nearly as bad as the internet bash train keeps implying.
@wb that vid is kinda useless as well. The problesm that seem to be coming regarding the OS is the network being able to communicate w/ other devices. The network code from what I read and keep reading seems very flawed and developing around it is giving troubles for the developers. I would assume that the box is still playable ofc if they are doing live demos but w/e they show us now and works doesnt mean EVERYTHING is working well behind closed doors. With that said I dont think MS will allow the xb1 to ship with bad critical errors and any errors still there will be sorted by release. If not then... lets say MS will be done this generation in their first 2 months of release.
It's hardly snapping if the snapped app isn't actually shown working. . .it won't take that much power to run a window that says 'sign in to use', 'need help connecting'. :S
Oh my dam, just shut up. You sony fans really need to get your head out of sony ass and stop trying to find something bad to say about every single piece of xbox One news that comes out.
What?!? What are you talking about. There's no app actually running in the snap section. It's not connected to the network. I don't know why you're so uptight.
he added a second vid now you can shut up and go back to fidning other threads to troll
I don't troll threads. I said a simple thing. It's not my fault people instantly have a hissy fit and get defensive. Second video looks to work grand in that short session :S Does saying that mean I'm an MS fanboy and will now receive abuse? The internet really is filled with weirdos!
Butt hurt man. Very strong with you. I canceled my PS4 pre-order because of people like you giving Sony a bad name. The PS4 is a great console but the Ultra Fan Base is actually vomiting material. After every comment you all have to add "MONSTER BEAST CONSOLE" "MAKES PC LOOKZ LIKE PS1" "BEAST MODE CONSOLE" "XBOXONE MEGADRIVE GRAPHICS" It makes many of people dislike sony and your damage comment make people love XBO more, but you think it helps sales by acting all Hitler like in your console war. Way to go guys, i bought an XboxOne because of your pathetic childish words and i am sure more have for the same reason. PS: every person i speak to who is investing in next gen i will tell them to go with XBO because the PS4 user base is full of 2 faced clowns. Last gen you said Super smash brothers rip off royale was GOTY, You said Resistance 3 was GOTY, you said that stupid Harry Potter (Wii Mote) rip off was GOTY......YET you never even bought it because you was to busy adding up Shovel Ware Exclusives. PS move sold like crap, Kinect stormed last gen, It's dance games sold more than any of your (day 1 Which you never bought) Exclusives ever did. Stop the hating on a console that did and will carry on ruining sony. Sony is not what it used to be. Yes Sony was good because it did not have any other console to test it. Now MS is dominating the market in PC,Phones and consoles you shit your pants on what it can actually do to you. End of rant. Love you all,love gaming...just hate the Sony scum not the console.
If N4G is any indication of how Sony fans are, it makes it easy not to like them. Sad thing is I like Sony's products.
Damn that was some rant. A hypocritical, flawed, fanboy one at best. Every single one of your points can be dissected as flawed and biased. Let's go.. -- "After every comment you all have to add......" Find me overwhelming evidence of this and you might actually have a point, rather than fanboy conjecture. -- "damage comment make people love XBO more" You have it the wrong way round. The only people who have been doing the damage control since February are Xbox loyalists and the Xbox employees themselves, trying to shed positive light on bad industry decisions. So consequently, of course they love XBO more, if they are the ones doing the damage controlling in the first place. -- "Last gen you said Super smash brothers rip off royale was GOTY, You said Resistance 3 was GOTY, you said that stupid Harry Potter (Wii Mote) rip off was GOTY" Again, point me to numerous comments calling any of those games GOTY. I think you'll find people were calling better games GOTY that came out those years. Like Uncharted 3 and Journey. -- "YET you never even bought it because you was to busy adding up Shovel Ware Exclusives" Here we go again with the "you don't support exclusives". Let the cogs of your small mind turn just a little bit, and you might understand that gamers who post on forums online, represent a minute fraction of its overall install base, let alone the fact that there are so many exclusive games coming from Sony, how would you expect them to afford to buy every single one, as well as the multiplatform games they're interested in. You can't... that's how. -- "PS move sold like crap, Kinect stormed last gen, It's dance games sold more than any of your (day 1 Which you never bought) Exclusives ever did." Oh 'teh saleezzzz'. If 15 million units is a crap figure, you are more delusional than I gave Xbox fanboy loyalists credit for: http://www.engadget.com/201... And wow. A dance game. Doesn't that just prove where most Kinect sales came from? Casual gamers. Gran Turismo sells more than most Xbox exclusives. Halo sells more than most Sony exclusives. Same sh*t, different day.
"Now MS is dominating the market in PC,Phones and consoles you shit your pants on what it can actually do to you." MS have been dominating the market in PC for years, but for years Apple have been eating into their marketshare, and it's not slowing down. The Windows phone is a failure http://www.forbes.com/sites... Sony has outsold Microsoft in overall units this generation, like last generation and the generation before that. They are in the strongest position going ahead, and add in Microsoft's colossal screw ups that has damaged its reputation and image in the console market and you can see this. None of the disadvantages that gave Xbox 360 an early lead over PS3, are present in PS4. Do tell us how Xbone shits on the PS4 on what it can do.... -- SEE? With all your factual inaccuracies as well as obvious bias, how can you call anyone "scum"? But let's face reality here... We'll be hating on the Xbone as long as Microsoft decided to create a console for which games and gaming wasn't its main priority, as referenced by the disparity in power, the overwhelming resources being put into non-gaming features and the Xbone reveal event being like this: http://www.youtube.com/watc... If there ever was an excuse to not buy an Xbone, your hypocritical, illogical and ill-informed comment would be a good candidate. However, I'm not that insecure or mentally ill to let that be the reason not to buy it or support Microsoft. If you're basing your purchase of a PS4 on its fans, not the console itself, and you consider yourself a gamer, I have some news for you. You're not a gamer, but a fanboy loyalist with deep rooted issues. It's as simple as that, especially if you're telling people to not buy one because of your biased and one-sided perception of its user base. So clearly, you do hate the console if you want it to fail because of those supporting it. You're in for a rude awakening as far as PS4 is concerned. You truly are.
Lol you obviously never had one intention of getting a ps4 and I can tell you from personal experience on both consoles ps3 and 360 this whole gen or previous gen (live and psn) and none of this over dramatic fanboy bullshit has never came up at all. OT this snap feature is excellent and I know I will get much use from it.
So you canceled your ps4 pre order because fanboys were mean to you and kinect dancing games sold more then ps move ?. Nice thinking bro. You missing great experience because of fanboys. I can say the same thing for X1 but that's not the reason why i'm not buying X1 , i didn't pre order X1 because i lost a lot of money on 360 without getting something worth that money. That's why i don't trust MS but that doesn't mean i won't change my mind later , when they prove they have changed and they brought unbelievable games i will support it but right now it doesn't worth one dollar to me. I won't even put it in my house even if they gave it to me for free with 10000 dollar gift. It's my opinion . I don't mind you or any one buying X1 but at least be fair so that you could have a better gaming experience . Don't be a gaming racist .
Well it has already been proven in the second vid. Where he plays Killer Instinct yet snaps up EI and surfs to N4G flawlessly.
Looks like the OS is working for this guy. Oh well, he might be just lucky. Right guys? @whoyouwit04: did realize you already addressed that.
Looks very clean. I think they did a good job.
omg is this in 1080 i love this game *sarcasm*
Clean and smooth. One thing gamers dont like is a sluggish OS. Was hoping to see it snap from live TV back to BF4, but this little demonstration will suffice.
This cant be right because its actually working and thats not what NEOGAF said!
neogaf said the OS was having troubles during online games and party chats and invites pls reread or atleast google they said they were having OS problems they didnt say the whole OS was problematic
Nov will be fun...
nice OS getting xbox one for sure :)
I find it funny how 8 people have disliked your comment. As if to say' "Oh you're getting the Xbox One? I don't think you are..." Some people are so immature... OT: This OS looks so smooth, I can't wait for the 22nd .... getting xbox one for sure :) ....
So in other words Famousmortimer was lying his ass off.... Bastard. No more articles of his claims and his "insider devs" should be allowed. Keep in mind that the video above is still likely showing an old build or firmware. Once MS updates the system even more it should be much better. Nobody should believe any bad rumors about the X1 or PS4. You should wait and judge for YOURSELF..
Doesn`t mean he was lying. Those are short videos and IE shouldn`t be the most resource demanding of the apps that can be snapped. There is a difference between something works for 3 minutes compared to using it all day long. The instability caused by using snap could be as example a memory leak and that would take time to crash the system. A system that is unstable wouldn`t crash after a few minutes in most instances but after a prolonged time.
Plus, wasn't his main claim that the OS and XBL had problems interacting? I thought that the whole snap feature issue was mostly being talked about by some former IGN editor. Not to mention it's entirely possible that the issue with Snap was fixed in that time. Famousmortimer has proven reliable in the past. He was one of several people, along with that same IGN editor, who outed CoD running in 720p which turned out to be very true.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum... http://www.neogaf.com/forum... http://www.neogaf.com/forum... That's what Mort and thuway and CBOAT were all reporting...that it was crashing no matter what was being done. You people keep hanging on to your "insiders" who haven't shown one shred of evidence to back their claims yet you get videos showing the contrary and pass it off as false. You'd rather take cryptic tweets from who knows where they got their info from over actual vids and real people. Try this for thought...on GAF the insider have to have 2 verfiable sources in order to post their info. CBOAT, THUWAY, MORT have not been there to dispute any of this. They've been posting from their twitter accounts. Little odd...
@theWB just like no proof was shown for cod and bf being at 720p yet both were and in both circumstances the OS issues being talked about and the resolution issues microsoft has danced around the questions
oh sh!!!t it plays flash videos too web browser even has tabs awesome thats it xbox one for me!!!! :)
What is real use for this?. Is this like customizing your interface?.
Clean and snappy!
Looks smooth, but seems like you have to be signed in for anything to work. That could be a problem! I have been wrong before.
watch this article reach nowhere on the front page any pro xbox one news gets no where on here :)
God I can't wait for the 14th. Vacation starts the day before PS4 launch and ends 2 days after the Xbox one launch. Can't wait to fiddle with all the features for these 2 powerhouses. Snap in some porn or. ... game AND watch porn simultaneously! To experience the vita PS4 combo! Hypest month of gaming ever for me!
Enjoy brotha It's like a triple xmas for me this year PS4, then Xbone than XMAS. I am going to spoil the crap out of my self and I am taking the 14th off as well.
I'm going to start my new system rituals on the 14th. My girl thinks it's hilarious. Cleaning the house, filling it up with food, wiping down the designated areas for them.... it's like an adoption everytime she said.
LOL yeah this is what us gamers do. I already got a huge spot for my XBOX ONE set up especially for the kinect. I've been prepping this moment for quite some time and I love launch time. Definitely I am going to put a dent in the wallet this year though, and it will be damn worth it. My wife thanks I am crazy too but she wants that kinect, she will have to wait.
Lol... Its gonna hurt the wallet for sure, I just dropped 30k on a new car last week... Now I gotta drop another grand on gaming Excitement is outweighing the financial hit.. Lol.. And I also have my spot picked out for kinect.. 360 will take a trip to my bedroom for streaming movies lol
would love to see how this thing flies when you add a kinect and voice commands
Like this "Xbox home"! "Launching Netflix"! That happened to me all the time! Lol! Looks like kinect 2.0 is way better! Here's to hoping!
Pretty smooth. Impressive Microsoft.
Amazing!! IE working that fast!?!? I don't even see that on computers. How did they do it??
Lol even good news is bad new for the X1 on N4G it seems.
Although it looks cool (& I like the way the UI loads), I still don't get the point of it. You snap IE or something -> it takes up screen space -> your attention is split between 2 things at the same time -> You're going to pause/stop playing the game anyway to read or watch the snap in content. It's strange, wouldn't it make more sense to be able to just go to IE etc' on their own & make the switching of windows instant?
I'm loving the speed and functionality of the UI. It will be wonderful to be able to do other things while games are loading, or while waiting until enough of the game is installed before beginning to play. This is the second video that shows the snap features working without bugs, so it seems the rumors were bogus.
