Leaked video shows Xbox One dashboard - Report

Reportedly leaked video shows beta interface for Xbox One console; users are able to minimise games and explore the console's dashboard at will.

A YouTube user has uploaded a two-and-a-half-minute video showing off what they claim is a walkthrough of the Xbox One's beta dashboard, according to a report by Polygon.

The clip (the original of which has since been deleted, and reuploaded by other users) includes a look at the console's Windows 8-style Metro tiled user interface, and the new My Pins feature that will let players place their most-used applications, content, and games within easy reach on the home screen.

While Microsoft has previously discussed and demonstrated fast switching between differing sources, such as when moving between live television and games, it appears that users will also be able to minimise games and explore the dashboard at will. Players will then be able to resume full-screen play by hitting the Xbox One's controller guide button.

"This is still pretty buggy, it has a lot of bugs in it because it's the beta," the video poster claims. It's unclear when the video was recorded or whether it is genuine. An Xbox representative was unavailable for comment at the time of publication.

The Xbox One will launch in 13 territories on November 22 for $499/€499/£429/A$599.

What Changed?  I remember  late 95' walking to GameStop at the mall for the PS1 launch.  There was a small group of people inside. No pushing yelling or lines.  I was in & out all of 5mins. lol nothing like today where there is so much drama. Which is better...Reviews, Previews,Artists Perception of how it might look like, Sneak Peeks, Blogs, Logs camp-outs all the crazyness - There was not much of the "WorldWideWeb" either...so i think that is what changed everything-

The whole hardcore gamer vs Xbox One BS is and will always be BS. The Xbox One will out-perform the PS$ in that it has dedicated servers made for and designed for Xbox Live and not some outfit in Singapore hosting one of PS4's new generation exclusive titles. There is also a much better lineup of exclusive games coming to Xbox One than their Japanese counterparts.

I see lots of scratches on the shiney black parts of the console. So they made the case out of cheap crap that scratches as soon as you touch it, great!

Wow they're even trying to copy PS4's dashboard. Sad. Look at the ps4 ui on youtube. This is the same but a lot more cluttered.

This is no leak, this Microsoft looking for free advertising. If it weren't, the guy who leaked would not, casually, show only a video of Ryse we have already seen. And at the beginnig of the video, there was an excessive movement of the camera, like if they were trying to make it look natural.

Not much has changed from 360 to Xbox One. The dashboard looks ok. If you can customize it and change the colors would be cool. But Bugs for a beta system which when it release will have bugs like the beta so pretty much watching this video makes me happy Im getting ps4 day 1 and waiting till 2014 for xbox1 seems like the smarter decision after seeing this video.

I've arrived bitches and I know you are waiting for The Glorious Oculus Rift Master Race to weigh in on this interface.

Doesn't look terrible tbh. I hear there are a lot of customization options available so you can pick and choose what is on your dash. Reminds me of windows 8 which is terrible for a home laptop/PC but might work good for a tablet/TV. 

On another note whoever this kid is he probably got his Microsoft employee parents into a shit ton of trouble for posting this vid.

@cpsobe720 Exactly what ive been saying its not so much the Hardware which the PS4 is "Slightly" better on paper.

The Fact is that Xbox is supported by Mircosoft the #1 used operating system on all home computers. They have the servers and money to support this. Sony in its own right is big sure but I cannot see anytime soon them having the capacity of servers even what the Xbox 360 had. And To think with the Cloud that its only gonna support the Xbox One even more. Xbox One will run a lot smoother then the PS4 will

@Messenger360p that's just the downside to having glossy finish. But yea the guy above me stated the ps4 does have a glossy part on it too and that will be just as prone to scratches. I'm not a big fan of gloss myself but oh well.

@Messenger360p  

1. when did you see him scratch it just by touching it?

2. how do you not know that plastic can be scratched?

3. would you like to take a guess at what material the ps4 and wii u cases are made out of?

@GONtheSKYLORD 

Yes because they didn't show off their dashboard first or anything like that(they showed it off at their reveal before Sony showed off their full dashboard). And look at it again if you have ever used windows 8 it looks a lot more like that and that came out way before the PS4 was ever even know to the puplic.

@GONtheSKYLORD lmao get tf outta here clearly its very similar to the 360 not to mention Windows 8 has been advertising their screen this way for how long now? you sound stupid i'm sorry

@dmastor Not the prettiest but looks functional and lightning fast.....good enough for me, hopefully we can customize the look a bit more than on the 360.

@Jayxcaliber28 Do you really think that? You do know it is getting close to release and they have shipped out beta systems(so has Sony). And not to mention stores will have these in them also so they have to send them to reps to go install them(and as a rep you do get the ability to test it out while its in your home). So it more like someone is getting fired and not MS.

@XB1 @GONtheSKYLORD   Don't throw a temper tantrum with me lem.  Sony developed their UI long ago and now MS comes along and copies the same format with less flash and more clutter. Watch the videos and see for yourself. Truth hurts.

@GONtheSKYLORD @XB1 You are a dumbsh1t.  Windows 8 and the metro interface has been in production long before the PS4 dashboard.  Besides, there isnt much to go on as far as the UI for the PS4 goes because nothing has been released.  If you honestly believe Microsoft copied an interface that is on their phone, tablets, Windows 8 OS, and console from Sony then you are truly ignorant.
