Microsoft has just released quality shots from their "New Xbox Experience."
Looking at these screenshots, I am actually very excited for this update, especially being that they've only announced some of the new features.
Yea I can't wait until they announce more features.
im sorta pissed off because i didnt buy a Wii.... i bought a damn 360.. i wonder if this is manditory?
I think the avatars are stupid. But the dashboard seems more clean and organized. It looks like you can find everything quickly.
I would of been excited IF I did not have those Mii(s) on the front and everywhere. I wish there was a deactivate Mii option.
If you're so excited go buy a Mac Book, that's where the dashboard came from... hence why they say, "If you want to see the next version of Windows OS, look at the Mac now.".
All apple does is copy what microsoft is going to do, give it a new name and implement it faster. Just like they take touchscreen and make it look like it's their gift to the world. Just like they take the iPod and make it look like it is the ultimate mp3 player, yet players with lower/similar price points are so much better. Sigh. Just like they released the iphone 3G and made it look like they made it cheaper, when in fact they over charged for the iphone in the first place ROFL. Sigh. Blind fanboys. Anyway, nice images $$.
Don't tell my the movies scrolling and games scrolling like itunes covers scrolling.. :)
I'm sorry, but if that were true, #1 if Apple implemented it faster then there would be an immense amount of flaws with the product so obviously that's not true. But yet, when windows comes out, there's so many problems with it, you can see them posted EVERYWHERE. Not to mention, how can Apple copy what Microsoft is GOING to do if it hasn't been done yet? Wow, the blind fanboy comment seems to be directed at the wrong person here. Apple's iPod paved the way for MP3 players, sure there are some now that are cheaper and just as good (considering I have a philips and not an iPod I agree, it's cheaper). However, it paved the way, it started the MP3 player craze. It's still a great MP3 player so stop wishing it wasn't, why else would there be a Zune if the iPod wasn't so great? Touch-screen? When did Apple even claim that touch-screen was their gift to the world? The touch screen was an AWESOME addition so I don't get what you're complaining about. No they didn't create it, nor did they claim to create it, but they put it to use in an excellent way. Why even bring up the price of these things? It's obvious that prices are way over dramatic on almost everything now days. About the only thing I find that has a reasonable price are LCD tv's.
-Apple Cover Flow/XMB -Home Avatars and Mii's produce in-bred retards
I like it, takes the best of Miis, iTunes & Home and fills it with a range of bonus features! :)
layout looks like a blocky xmb and the avatars are such a blatent copies of wii avatars! they even have that little meeting place like the wii does... sure they have taken it further with the groupin up with friends thing but its still shoddy. i prefer old layout.
Don't you mean Mii 2.
How i feel about this update. Right now I feel that the avatars make the whole thing look to kiddish. And i think it looks like they bit Apple to much again, and even the XMB. I'll reserve final judgement for when i see it for myself or see more of it. But right now, i dont know, but im leaning towards, "nah".
Is it me or does the dashboard feel like the XMB now?
It's sad that Microsoft is screwing it's own userbase by going with cutsie Mii type "avatars". Microsoft's made a series of strategic mistakes and this could alienate the one market segment that identifies with the Xbox brand, the hard-core gamer.
I prefer the current dashboard... its looks cool. The new dashboard looks sh1t and looks like a fuking copy of PS XMB but with added colours.........
the current dashboard is still going to be there, its being integrated into the guide
Why don't you just get it over with and buy Nintendo.........I'm sure this is all just gonna sit very well with their supposedly mature and hardcore audience....
More like Mii + Lego Indiana Jones/Bob the Builder/Dora the Explorer/Rollie-polie-olie.
Dude that was an awesome statement!!! bubbles
Wow its even more gay. And it looks like the Wii. Good copy MS, youre good for that.
"And it looks like the Wii" How can a Dashboard look like a console? ;)
This looks great as a first step. MS haven't revealed all the features and functions and how this will merge with the current dashboard. The full video is on XBL if anyone wants to check it out. Disgree?? WTF? Major Nelson on his blog states more feature announcements are coming in the following months. And you can view the video these screenshots were taken from on Xbox Live called "New Xbox Experience". What is there to disagree with?
How can this be a great first step, but yet firmware 2.41 wasn't a great first step towards XBL? Interesting how when it's for YOUR console of choice it's a "great first step".
you make me sad
big time and it looks rushed wish ms took more time on it
Mii channel, oh excuse me, 360 dashboard. Album flip from Itunes, whoops 360 dashboard again. Where does MS come up with all these great ideas?, oh yea they steal them from other companies, except online play, wait that was on the dreamcast!
I like how people disagree with my comment, I am a 360 and PS3 owner and if you can't see that this is a rip off you might as well go back to your sippy cup, close your eyes, put your fingers in your ears and say la la la I cant hear you la la la. Reminds me of the Family Guy episode where they say that some people are stubborn like a mule, he ha he ha, even though the facts are clear. Mii avatars excuse me delete delete MS avatars, hope we don't get sued for ripping off another company.
seriously if you want a wii and u had a 360 well you got one! ha microsoft cant be a leader either and they want to win the console war well a little news for you crappy graphics or not wii already won the day it came out.
It's the dashboard, which is only about 20 percent of what the console is. The wii can't play gears, and all the other games available for the 360. For those who thinks it's like a wii and don't own a 360 or a wii, then go ahead and get a wii. I'm sure you continue to feel the same way when gears 2 and all the other big titles come out. I think it's kind cool, and from what I hear it's suppose to be optional. And I hope it is optional, because that would give some of you one less silly thing to whine about.
I think the problem is seeing this dashboard then flying into gears 2. It just wont feel right.
I can't see the advertisements!! *heh*
i too prefer the older dashboard actually...alot more "normal" looking as opposed to this gamey looking, reversed xmb.
One more reason not to buy a 360. Every announcement during their E3 is just another money garnishing scheme... NetFlix integration?! You have to be dumb paying for downloaded movies. http://www.demonoid.com/
not 100% sure but i read somewhere that Netflix customers would still be able to download for free, but it all depends on the subscription you have with netflix.
"NetFlix integration?! You have to be dumb paying for downloaded movies." You have to be dumb to not realise it's a free addition for all Live Gold members?!
for stealing movies.
Your dumb for not downloading movies. I see I want I get. Trust me there are enough mass heards of sheep to keep the entertainment industries a float. So I say go ahead and make that tiny dent in their pocket lining.
i like that it appears as though we'll be losing all the ads that take up a third of each blade. i like the cleaner look to the whole thing. i hate those friggin' avatars. man they look dumb. and what happens to the gamer pics that were sold... and are still being sold... i don't see them anywhere on those screens. money down the drain? that actually kind of annoys me because i bought one gamer pic pack (xevious) so i could use the same pic on the ps3 and 360 (the solvalu from xevious) now that's gonna disappear on the 360??
don't have 360's or xbl.... jokers... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
AND TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL!!! Microsoft never sleeps!!!!
I hope you own a Nintendo because Sony has absolutely no room to talk with their FW 2.4 basically feature for feature rip-off of Xbox Live. How are those trophies and custom soundtracks or in-game XMB? Or how is that eerily familiar to Second Life HOME doing?
So how's your "in the movies"? Quite like Eye Create eh? How are your Mii's? I bet Bob the builder is pretty pissed right about now. Don't even start with the copying bull sh!t.
Um you obviously didn't know that Nintendo stole the motion controller idea from Microsoft and made it better. Ever heard of a PC control from 97' called the Sidewinder Freestyle pro. It was the FIRST motion sensitive controller on the video game market. You know why they excluded it from the 360 launch and I quote from Microsoft "it is an unproven technology", sounds like what they said about HDMI (it was pointless in their opinion).
does ms ever have an ORIGINAL idea?
Achievements, which Sony copied btw...
of achievement system on the PS2? Honest question. Honest answers.
do we have to get this or can i stick with my old display?
its like a ninetendo XMB.
seems like a really nice change, i also think you get to keep your old dash board, this seems more like an extension of the original (I hope so anyway)
...The New 360 Dashboard = Itunes + PS3 Interface. Mind you, they have switched the axis for the new interface so you scroll left to right for the games and not up/down like you do on the PS3. This is a much needed overhaul from the garish interface that the 360 currently sports. However, I'm not a fan of the new (Wii) avatars as they are aimed solely at kids or guys who are too in touch with their feminine side.
@xhairs Mac OS, whoops, Windows! Dreamcast button names and colors and triggers, whoops, original xbox. Dreamcast Online play, whoops, xbox live Where do all these great ideas come from? I'll give MS one, they came out with motion controls back in 97' (sidewinder freestyle pro on pc)
this looks awesome. but i don't want it to be like Play House where they nickel and dime you to death for stupid clothing and useless sh1t like that which Sony is trying to do (if that vaporware ever comes out. at this rate, it will come out AFTER M$'s update LOL, sad.). it's all about money. whatever, I guess.
Says the guy that pays to get online with his console. Then pays again to download content with it. Oh lets not for get all the add-ons and the MS only over priced HDD that is the only HDD 360 can use.
u must be talking to someone else, cuz I bought my 360 on launch date and have only paid for the amazing Live service, and some DLC like shivering isles for oblivion or awesome arcade games which you still don't have LOL. you get one new arcade game once every month or so and it's crap LOL. awww, butthurt droids
Sony and Nintendo does something, You bash it. Microsoft does it, it's the best thing is sliced bread.
AHAHAHAHAHHAH......This shiet is such a JOKE.....AHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA bobble headed avatars....AAHHAHHAAHHAH This is like the poor mans version of Home, but without the HOME..........AAHHAHHHAHAHHA
xbox is really trying to take out nintendo wii first the darwin (see video) n now this. i like both system thought but does xbox have to do that
The Darwin isn't made by Microsoft. It's a third party peripheral coming to bothe the 360 as well as the PS3.
I was incredibly depressed when they announced the avatars and the new dashboard. The avatars, besides being a blatant rip of miis, look terrible, stupid, and silly. And their animations are worse than their looks. The gamerpics were good enough, and you could choose cool [email protected] characters from games. I don't want to make an avatar that looks like nerdy ol' me, and with such cartoony designs I can't imagine making an avatar that looks any less nerdy than myself. Plus, the blades interface was perfect imho. It was simple, straight-forward, and my fiancee (who is not very willing to work hard to figure out a new computer program) figured it out easily. On the bright side, I already have a Netflix subscription and my fiancee loves streaming TV episodes using it (because it's so slow to get TV shows one disc at a time by mail). We'll both get good use out of that new feature.
The blade interface will still be in there, by pressng the guide button. I don't think the new interface will be any harder to figure out.
is what happens when copying from others goes wrong.
u mean like sh1tasses?
Do we each get our own home to decorate?
Meh, I dont really need the gimicks but whatever, its not like a spend a ton of time in the dashboard anyway.
Where the are my Gamerpic and Theme OMG this suck lets hope this is optional i like it how it is now.
