The new Xbox One UI

Postby RB » Sun Nov 15, 2015 3:03 pm

A lot of the reason why I got rid of two XBox Ones before my current one was the shit UI.
After the Nov 12 update, it's actually worse. I had to fucking Google how to redeem a code on it.
Why can they not get it right? Just go back to the 360 interface or clone the PS4 FFS.

Yeah, I hate it as well. 360 interface was so much better.

PS4 is a menu-fest, not for me thanks. Never liked it on the PS3, either.

I neither like nor dislike the new Xbone UI. Some bits are better, like the side bar, and some bits are worse, like having to scroll down so far to get to the game list. All in all though, this one feels more natural to use than the old one, and certainly looks more modern with the Win10 look.


You guys been back to the 360 lately? Hate to break it to you, but it's really not as good as you remember.

The PS4 doesn't really have menus except for system settings which the XB also has but they even managed to make those complicated and shit looking. The PS4 is just one left-right scrolling list that's simple to navigate to what you want. I've never had to Google how to find something. As soon as TR is completed, this is going back to Game.

Must just be you, I've never had to google how to use a code either. I just say "Xbox, use a code" and it does it all for me ;)

Well given the number of thanks that the guy got for his blog post on how to find it, it seem you're the only person who bought a Kinect :lol:
