New Xbox Experience Feature Preview - Features at GameSpot
So if they're going away from the Blade system, does that mean that all the theme packs that we've purchased already won't work anymore? Would suck if it does.
I've heard that you get a choice, old or new
I bet the fucking thing bricks my 360... 2 days before Rock Band 2
At least they're admitting that that cluster-f@#k of an interface needed an update. I'm proud of my old employer.
Go pee through their mail slot.
Nah, despite their Borg-like attitude, it's the best job I ever had. For the first 5 months our team got paid to play games 9-5 and "study" the cinematic story-telling of the games.
The only time the snake reared its M$ ugly head was when Corporate came to visit, and boast about how "Rare was OURS" and "Nintendo was dead" and "Azurik was this generation's Zelda" <---- true story.
edit: I actually laughed at that statement in the meeting and got a "cut it" look from my boss.
Can I pee through their mail slot? :3
Well....I can't wait for the update. I think it's gonna be awesome. Watxhing movies with my friends and partying up without having to be in the same game will be a big welcome.
yes..... yes, you may. And since I got canned after Freelancer was released, while you're there, ask them to make HD support for Mass Effect 2 instead of trying to cram full games into a 4MB floppy that is their HD.
Looks very interesting, but it'll take a while to before I get used to the new theme. I liked the blades design and had some damn cool themes downloaded that are now basically worthless.
That netflix streaming part is AWESOME. I just wonder what the quality will be like.
The theme thing doesn't bug me at all - I don't waste points on crap like that.
It looks okay, but I'll be a little ticked if the themes and gamerpics I've bought become unusable and MS merely gives a 'tough luck'.
I'm gonna be extremely pissed if the New Xbox Experience says "fuck you" to the version 1.0 themes. I got Mega Man 9 themes and gamer pictures (yet I don't feel like downloading Mega Man 9 for the 360), and I don't want those to go to waste.
I don't really like this concept they are going with and besides, I wish they would give us a free day for that day last week xbox live was down for 24hrs.
Agreed, I currently have the Deception theme (surprise) as my 360 Dashboard. If it wipes that out I will disconnect my 360 from the internet. No need to throw away money on good themes because M$ wants the 360 to be like the Wii.
Don't encourage them.
At the Microsoft keynote at TGS the other day they made it sound like the "experience" was finished and ready to go out. If that's true I really do think they should be putting it out this month. After the mess last Christmas I would think giving this as much lead time as possible to work out and kinks in the system (and how can there not be any) would be desirable.
I'm not sure what boggles my mind more, that people paid money to get new wallpaper for the dashboard in the first place or that the dude 3 posts up is alledgely willing to forego the entire online service just to keep one.
Its all outta love for them especially when I worked for them and they outsourced my job to India.
