    I dislike the flatness and no artistic design involved. It looks bland.

    I highly dislike Window 8s layout/UI.. and this is no better. I'd hope during gameplay being in the menu would pause the game though lol

    Though to be fair I havent liked a platforms UI all that much for many years.

    I don't agree that it is bland -- but I still want to see more of it (not completely sold on it just yet.) As for artistic design? Not really sure what you mean by that. It's an interface that is meant to help users locate content and if it serves that purpose well, whatever you mean by artistic design, is probably not gonna matter much in the end.

    Still, as I said earlier, I want to see more of the UI before I say anything else. I don't dislike what I have seen so far.

    That was just during a cinematic (although it should still pause it, I mean, I'd like to think that they realize the cinematics are also important), it would probably pause for gameplay.

    On the brightside, it's possible they'll update it over time as they did with the 360. The blades when it first came out, is vastly different to what it is now.

    I was never a fan of the blades. So many people I've seen say otherwise. I preferred the visual look of the NXE (even over the Metro style they have going now) although things weren't always easy to find, the important stuff was easy to find.

    Green boxes, white icons... no style in that at all. It makes a visual difference for sure. I want to see a lot more of the UI being a lot more unique.

    Clearly MS needs to know that the world hates and despise windows 8. Why the hell would they put it in the video game system? UGH!

    It could still be unique.....as for the green boxes with white icons; they might be trying to tie a section with a particular color. We also haven't seen other sections and how everything else ties it all together.

    I am having hard time recalling the video right now so I am not sure if they showed other sections with different colors so we'll see.

    Looking good to me, and very Kinect friendly it appears. No ads on the main page would should appease some. Can't wait to use it.

    I'm not talking about having different colors. Something that gives it some direction. Green square with a white icon. How about a transparent box with a real category icon.. something. Look at the screen 2four posted above. See all those pretty green boxes? Go across the screen and see those dull and bland boxes? yeah.

    Other than looking too bland for my liking, the no ads is a welcome "addition" for sure.

    It's surprising they are still pushing this Windows 8. The OS was generally designed and optimized for touchpad/tablet/smartphone use.

    I'm not too down on the actual OS itself... just the look of it. I don't mind the way it is designed from a logistical standpoint. I do mind that it looks absurdly bland right now.

    Pretty cool how the game can go in window mode while you adjust and look at other things.
    I guess thats one of the advantages of 3 OS working in conjunction.

    As long as i can pin my favorite stuff, and everything works smoothly ill be happy.

    When I got in on the "new" dash for the 360 Beta a while back, it looked like this as well... after it launches, it looks a lot better.

    Most of that is placeholder gfx.

    Well, u know this, I am pretty sure you were on those betas too?

    It reminds me of the PS Store and how it displays games within the store. Either way it is clean looking which is nice. Seems simple to find what you are seeking. I am more interested in that controller then anything. I want to hold it for myself!

    Hopefully simple design = Speed...Give me a fast OS over a slow over complicated one everyday of the week.

    If it's slow however then i'l complain about how standard it looks.

    I don't mind the tiled interface, I think it is much better suited to a console like the Xbox One instead of a full blown OS like Windows 8!

    I use the Xbox Guide from the guide button on the controller anyway. That is what I want to see.

    Same here. I think people are a bit confused with all the boxes to the left which are only pins. The actual dashboard looks pretty cool to me.

    Yes. That's why my dislike is for what can be seen right now. If it isn't like this when I turn it on at home, then I'm ok.

    I doubt there will be a speed problem with it.

    If so, then I can remove the pins. The actual main dash screen won't look like that, I'm good with that too.

    It's cool that the Xbone also gets a smooth and quick game boot up and seamless transition from game to dashboard. Although the dashboard is pretty much Metro UI from Windows 8, it's the exact same design so there's nothing innovative there but seems like a cooler addition to a console compared to it being on the actual Windows 8 for PCs.

    Something looks off with the controller but I can't put my finger on it. Is it the retail controller or some kind of dev kit one?
