The November Update for the Xbox One is here, and Brian takes a look at one of the most anticipated features-- custom backgrounds and themes! How do they stack up to the custom themes of the PS4?
the thing is this is what Sony should be doing,they have an amazing photo mode in many games and obcviously the screen shot mode yet on ps4 i can only get the 5 crap ones available in uk. take note sony
I was unsure how do do this earlier and i watched a video and one guy was saying if you get an achievement you can set that as your background if you want really?. Tried it and it works. Every achievement for any game you get a picture with it, awesome update if you ask me.
Sony has awesome themes and custom background already. A man is sure they'll let you use photos for backgrounds in a future update but not a big deal. Having shareplay is incomparable to putting a photo in the background tbh.
a future update next year in November?
@Yetter A man honestly wouldn't even notice lol Now of course a man would expect it before then and hopes it's there for all those who do value it but he just cares more about gaming features like shareplay than stuff like backgrounds.
@Jaqen_Hghar , What the heck does this have to do with Sony, PS4 or shareplay? Don't tell me you are another troll that leech on any good xbox news with the usual Sony popaganda. We already have too many of those people here. But I have a feeling you will be back. LOL
Just checked, i still haven't received any update here in the UK. I am not subscribing to gold, would that make a difference.
They do it in waves and make sure it didn't auto do it while idle.
Check your console settings update. I had too.
Would you like a preview invite so you don't have to wait?
@Immorals Yeah, sounds good to me, thanks man.
take note Sony ? ahah whahahah ahwhhwhahah wahahahahah haha Sony shouldn't take any tips from the inferiors.
hello win8/ windows phone lol how do people find that ui so great?? my laptop reverts back to desktop mode and im going nowhere near a windows phones (same goes for many other phone users lool) hell the Theme is hidden behind all the tiles lol when it comes to software i think google an iso are kicking there arse lol
I hated it on my pc, yet it's great with a console. Even better with kinect (laziness catered for!)
Forget how it looks, if you ever get a chance to try it out yourself you will understand. The live tiles work great with achievments, friend list, media and snap features. Xbox One UI > PS4 UI but its Microsoft and they specialize in software so it only makes sense.
the ps4 UI is fine. its nothing special just like the xbox one. i get on the systems to play games not look at the UI which apparently some of you guys rather do....
i have tried it win8/360/phone and im honest here its not worked out for me and the same goes for millions of users
@Kane22 I never said the PS4 UI sucked, its just not better than Xbox One UI. I was just stating the obvious that its better and Microsoft used it to its advantage with their features. Microsoft's bread and butter is software and Operating Systems so it makes sense why the Xbox One UI is so good.
I have windows 8.1 on my pc and i hate the ui but its different on my tablet and x1. The ui was not designed with pc in mind but works amazingly on tablets and or x1 imo
Too bad. Win Phone8 is actually a lot cleaner, faster and more secure than android. I had a Droid and now have a Nokia Lumina 1020. Everything about the phone and interface oozes quality. It is so must faster and live tiles are very handy and informative. Updates are handled much better. With Android, I always felt like I was being spammed.
Another awesome, and very welcomed update...
Its incredible how fanboys cant accept the obvious. Xbox one ui and features > ps4 ui and features. It is what it is, not what you want it to be.
Overall I prefer Xbox One UI over PS4. I own both systems and they're both fantastic. I have more friends on PS4 so I mainly get 3rd party games for that but I do get exclusives for both and I'll probably get single player focused games for my Xbox. I'll be on Halo on Tuesday so add my Gamer Tag if you wish which is Shmeedy24685. Hope to see you on there :)
For mine I have the light blue tile color, very easy on the eyes. And for my background I use my Titanfall achievements. Looks sweet. I'll probably replace them with HMCC ones though. Good job MS. They definitely have not left their fans hanging. Hopefully we can get a mini update letting us control the opaqueness of the tiles.
Cant wait on Gears of War collection next year to add as my background.
Honestly the Xbox one is becoming my favorite even over my beloved PS3. I like the ui much better than the ps4. You may disagree, because you do not own a n xbox one. Even putting the disc in the drive feels better on the Xbox than the clunky PS4. I'll say what everyone else is thinking.... that's what she said.
