Potentially new images of a new Xbox 360 dashboard update. Reveals Kinect functionality, new setup, and look.
Nothing special, looks more like an updated version of what we already have, instead of a major overhaul like when NXE launched. None the less, it looks nice. I like it.
New Xbox Experience--->Slightly Newer Xbox Experience
dumbed down to me :/ still getting kinect, and move ;)
It looks like a cleaner, easier, more efficient dashboard. Also looks like it isn't too taxing on the system either. I honestly didn't care about the NXE after a while, and found it to be rather annoying at times with it being curved at an angle. Also, it isn't "Kiddy". It's just more trendy with today's technology.
Sounds like the Xbox is suffering from an image problem. M$ lacks a bit of confidence. Hopefully it won't be littered with ads this time!
The current one looks much better and has more depth. Hopefully this will be optional, because this just seems like a down grade.
No.. they've flattened it, taken away the depth & therefore the visibility - reducing what you get to see on screen, wasting real estate and making it decidedly simpler looking. I like my swooshy NXE and i'd like to use that with Kinect if i ever get it.. not some oversimplified flat waste of space. Like the new guide menu colouring though :)
the NXE sucks monkey balls.
Oh hell no! The old blades looked like something from the 80's. Maybe the "NXE sucks" because you don't like seeing your avatar Tiny Big Man. lol! I wouldn't either.
meh nothing really that changed
Current version x 1.5
Eh, more like 1.3
lol....true hopefully it will make navigation through the marketplace easier.....maybe i can finally find the place where i can sell my own items that M$ promised...lol either way with a theme in the background it sould just look the same as what we know and love now....yeeeeeeaaaaah.......
i still can't even get the hang of the nxe as it is...
I don't think this is real.
I'm still undecided on whether or not this is actually real.
easy to fake looks too much like the current one, and really overall looks like a step backwards in eye candy, and if theres one thing I can tell you that I've learned throughout the years its that eye candy sells.
The Dashboard has been long over due for a update. I thought that when they eliminated being able to play Xbox games on the current system ,that we should have seen a update soon after. As you above have said ,these pics look as if theres nothing new. Lets hope that more information comes out it the months ahead. BTW,can we NOW have a increase in the # of XBL friends over the now VERY outdated 100 limit!!!!
I kinda want the old blade dashboard back.
Me too. I much rather the old dashboard. It would be nice to have the option to go back to the old dashboard. I know there is a similar dashboard when the Xbox button is pressed but its not the same.
you have to be kidding, the blades we a cluttered mess not to mention horrendously ugly while I'm not a big fan of the fruity avatar stuff, the new styled dash is way better functionality wise, not to mention speed can you imagine scrolling through all of the existing content on the old blade system? it would take forever
It's definitely real. I know at least some of their stage demo at E3 showed the dash like this.
With every update the 360 dashboard looks more and more like a console designed for kids and not adults. Its a far cry from the hard core green and black 3D interface of the original Xbox...
I call fake... My current Dashboard version is: 2.0.9199.0 This "new" one in the screens is: 2.0.12209.0 Either way, something is fishy.
I believe this is fake, seeing as they refer to Kinect as Natal in the last picture.
Why would they still call it "Natal" when it's been named "Kinect"?
I believe that's his point. Unless the dash is older than E3 which is when it was first named internally as well as externally.
This build was most likely developed before the announcement.
Maybe that's the layout when Kinect is plugged into the 360 for navigation. Notice how everything is 2D. Could help precision.
Only big difference I noticed, the "globy" has been removed from backround. Good, now it won't blog my own backround pics.
yah that was my biggest complaint when NXE came out glad they r fixxing it
Ah, good spot - here's hoping that is removed next update regardless of what happens to the rest of the interface...
This is kinda looks like a fake. The Dashboard is 2D. The current one is more 3D and has some sort of depth to it. The E3 demos with the Kinect Dashboard had some depth as well.
Get rid of all the grey! Grey and green do not go well together. Funny how a company that specializes in making OSs make such a crappy looking one for all of it's devices except PC. Make it like a simplified version of Windows seven and allow users to use our own pictures as wallpapers like a PC....and PS3 for that matter. And I hope to god they change the Zune video market place, that grey an black are depressing.
They are cutting back the size of the dash so the older 360's will be more able to run Kinect. So they are removing the more 3-D style and making a more streamlined dash. Doesn't look bad. Heads and shoulders above the horrid PS3 Dash.
PS3's XMB is way better, aesthetically and control wise. The only thing I like on the 360 NXE Dash is the Friends and My Xbox(of course) card.
so whats new?? besides the ability for kinect?? i dont see why this is such a big deal
...but I like the Xross Media Bar more than NXE... It’s more simple, it’s quicker and you don’t ever have to see an avatar if you don’t want to.
