Xbox Dashboard Update Demo
We check out the new features of the Xbox Dashboard Update, including Kinect functionality, Beacons, Cloud Saves, and the mobile companion app.
The new interface is sick but we need more vids lol I don't know how to input my cable provider or what's going to be shown on here "companion"
@pierrey22 yea personally I avoid trolling and try my best to remain neutral to the situation. Since I am a avid gamer and love most of the equipment I own. It just sucks today that we have too many close minded fanboys that cannot enjoy the full spectrum. But as far as the UI goes I do appreciate it being way better then the second version. But wish there was a option to turn off the excessive ads. Unless I just haven't found it yet or am overlooking something. I use my systems for gaming not multimedia uses. That is why I spent $970 on a high end PC I built. Hell it would be nice to have some simple switch buried in all the menus giving us the option to have a gaming oriented menu layout or all that social BS the younger generations are all caught up in.
Whats the difference (or should I say benefit) between cloud and just recovering your gamertag on another console?
I didn't really get to mess with it much but it is looking too compact and confusing. I do ,however, like the bing search bar....just as long as it works like I hope it does.
I not sure if i like it,i liked the older one more and theres been alot of problems with connecting to XBL and sighing in, do you have to update?
Guess what? ****you, i updated and then had to update again, and then again and then once all the updates are finished i get sighed out of XBL and i cant reconnect. Wtf kinda update is this im a paying customer ****you, wtf am i paying for? So you can update my dashboard so that then you can kick me out off XBL, guess what, shuub it up your *** and kinect as well. Have a nice day ****ers
so i can actually update my 360 saaweet.does it cost any thing to have an xbox 360 upgraded and if so then how much would it be?(would i have to take my 360 in just to have it upgraded.)
Looks kinda cool. I wonder if all my paid themes will still show in the background?? If this new UI can only be viewed this way with the metal background, that will be a bummer especially since I've paid for themes in the past....
It seems like every 2 or 3 days, the Vita is getting a hunk of news that makes it far less desirable. Throw in the recent PS3 pack of the PSP God of Wars and it doesn't seem unreasonable to suspect that UC: Golden Abyss will eventually pop up on the PS3, as well. The list of reasons to get one is getting rapidly eclipsed by the list of reasons not to. I admit that I don't want or need a dedicated handheld (if I am sitting down that long, I am probably near my consoles), so take of that what you will.
Good news........... http://twitter.com/#!/majornelson/statuses/144103944405262337 It should be out this after noon in pacific standard time.
at least i dont have to repeat my button pushes on the controller. haha. yay for cloud storage though. hopefully it functions like it should.
Yeah, cause ALL of my friends have windows 7 phones. Lol, til it gets released to And and iP I don't see that being used as much as it could have
It's been delayed unfortunatly - http://news.cnet.com/8301-10805_3-57337486-75/xbox-360s-tv-update-faces-delay/
"as you can see its alot easier to navigate using kinect" "xbox social" *no response "XBOX SOcial" *2 Seconds later dasboard showed social VS Controller : *press right once **0.001 seconds later* showed social in conclusion, I loled
kincet sucks why invest in it so much? cloud saving is very usefull at least and true it kind of blows away the theme o well thay ruined halo waypoint so what if thay kinda ruin the dashborad? prise ms anyway
Looks pretty good. But it kinda blocks out the back round themes again which is kinda annoying. But still i like it
i know its a windows phone = windows app but i wish this was for the iphone it would give me another app/reason to avoid a boring conversation
I'm all for innovation and trying new things, but MAN kinect just seems like such an unnecessary gimmick. It may save you a fraction of half a second, otherwise it just looks like you're gonna smack someone trying to move around.
Nice but I really wish they'd allow us to customize the dashboard a little, like what we had with the previous blade/NXE dashboards.
love how he's trying to show off the Kinect navigation, but when he picks up a controller everything works much better.
this seems very kinect based, but i don't have the kinect. i hope its still easy to navigate, but otherwise the new dashboard looks great.
