Each update is getting worse and more stupid as the days go by. In the beta thread nearly everyone had the same complaints that where flooded day in and day out repeatedly and what did Microsoft do? Not a damn thing...AGAIN.

Honestly I prefer the Wii's/Sony layout, sure they never change it but they also don't make it worst. I miss the really fast speeds of the blades dashboard and guide even if it didn't look good and this new update barely resembles windows 8 or windows phone so I don't know what Micro was thinking. Whats the point of them doing beta's anyways? They NEVER fix any issues the beta has or take into consideration any of the suggestions, at best maybe they fix one or two AT BEST.

Rant Over.

Also if anyone can direct me to where deal of the week is then much appreciated and please do not tell me that I have to use the retarded app that I constantly forget about even though it's my only pinned item.

Soltice I think I liked the second (?) dashboard the most.

Wanna say that I normally love streamlined, minimalist design. But damn, the current dashboard is... pretty counter intuitive in ways.

Honestly the facebook app was near useless anyway. I don't mind the new dashboard, I do like that game on demand/indie/and arcade all have their own sections now.

i really dont care either since now you can Pin things, including websites. so if youre one of the 12 people that used the FB app, you can just Pin the IE site of it to your home page.

im gonna put like Netflix and a couple games on the home page.

I haven't updated my xbox in over a year because of the UI updates etc, I pretty much just play offline anyway on it anyway.

How do I update? My console usually does the updates automatically but it looks like it's stopped doing that...

Whilst I don't really give a shit away as I always have my phone two feet away from me, but this seems kinda... dumb. Did any even use those bloody things anyways?

And yet I still like it more than PSN's interface.


I don't care the twitter + Facebook are gone. I never used them.

I'll second that and probably remove the app anyways. I want to see it on the web on Xbox 360. Please tell it'll take flash, well if it doesn't I am in no way surprised or too upset over it.
