New XBL Update

Post by Carlos Spicyweiner on Mon Nov 01, 2010 9:47 am

I guess this goes in Video Games? Anyway, anybody have it yet? I just downloaded it and I like the new look personally. It feels a lot more... organized, in a way, to me.

I don't like the whiteness of it.
hurts my eyes.

I liked the calm blue a lot better.

everything is white and horribly blinding now, thats all i saw, there was also some change in the terms of use witch nobody will bother to read.

and now it basically assumes you have kinect witch i find offensive becuase i would let my 360 red ring from playing viva pinata before i consider buying that gimicky casual crap.

I fucking hate it. It feels friendly.

The day when you feel like a softy for turning on your xbox is a sad day indeed.

Remember a long time ago when the dashboard wasn't a slideshow?


Good times.

Supposed to be more clean.
Dunno if I like it yet, only seen a few screenshots and the changes appear to be strictly cosmetic.

I prefer the old dashboard. My SDTV does not do colors or sound well, so I can't read anything on the damn thing easily because of it's brightness.

It looks like they changed it for the kinect... but I liked the old setup better. The menu was organized so that you could easily see what the next few panels are and the blue was easy on the eyes. Now it seems like everything was squished except for the guide menu (which now takes up almost the entire screen).

I want my old dash back... why'd they have to go and change it? Sad

This website isn't very easy on the eyes, either, NT. I just plain liked the look of the old one better.

I think M$ just figured white boxes would make it easier to be consistent.

Yeah, but this new one is all flat and bland. the other one had a curve to it, and there was a feeling of depth.
