The New Design - Looking good!

The next annual November Xbox Dashboard update is said to be more than routine. For starters your interface will change, getting a ‘new’ look. Most of us will hate it at first, as you do, but I hope it will be worth while. What may prove most interesting is what the new Dashboard will bring to the table. You may have seen the vast amount of TV broadcasters Microsoft have signed to bring your TV fix. The likes of YouTube and Bing have been accommodated in the new Dash. The new Dash is thought to have a ‘App’ tab to bring a third-party to the Marketplace – reminds me of the Apple ‘App Store’, surely Microsoft aren’t copying Apple? Will these ‘Apps’ be played on though, I mean with the vast amount of Games out there do we really need ‘Apps’?

The Kinect will be integrated within the Dash aswell – Bing will have complete voice control and gestures will be used to cycle through the Dash menu. Finally Microsoft are using their inventions. The update is dated on November 15th 2011 but looks more November 25th 2011.
