The lights are on
Xbox.com has been updated and now includes an Xbox One coat of paint. There is also a new video that shows the dashboard in action.
You will have to head here to see the video as there is no simple way to embed it. The video shows the world's most fickle entertainment media consumer as he moves from watching a movie, to watching TV, to playing a game, to chatting with a friend, all in less than two minutes.
The website has additional Xbox One details, but it doesn't appear to be any new information. Rather, it presents everything in a very clean, informational layout.

Our TakeI am incredulous that the video is real time, or that the voice commands will work as well as they do in the video, but those concerns aside, it's a very clean, fluid interface. I may actually use the Skype video chat function if it truly works as quickly and as well as it does here.

Can we just call M$ "Scheming Troll" from now on. It's perfect.
i cant get the video to show for me in google chrome >< lol

Hate to break it to you, but nothing works as flawless as it does in a video. I doubt any of this was in "real time." These are promo videos to show what you can expect, slow downs can be expect, but i cant wait for Nov 22.

The Scheming Troll. I think Microsoft finally found their company mascot!
This looks really good. Hope it works this well. The skype function is beginning to interest me.
This is pretty neat! But I guess they were caught red handed using Titanfall gameplay. Should've used something else.....
The problem I have it looks like it is pre rendered and not a true representation of the interface, as the Titanfall segment is from Gamecon and that was run on a PC I can see that it will not be as smooth and plain sailing as it depicts. There is also a rumour going around that they are still having problems with the OS since the removal of the DRM and other bits of the code within it.
I know from experience that when you mess with coding that it can have unexpected results and outcomes.
I am soooo looking forward to getting my hands on my new Xbox One. Not that this feature was a deal breaker or anything, but great addition.
My favorite part of the revamp is now the "account" section of the website actually works again! Which would've been nice about a month ago so I could've updated my information w/o having to call customer service to do it for me.
I don't think he's leaving his Xbox anytime soon.
does anyone else notice everytime a video like this pops up the use the same gameplay footage from titanfall? besides that i wonder if this interface will reall be that smooth
It's simply showing how you can navigate between functions. Comon guys, obviously it's not supposed to represent a guy ACTUALLY doing these things. It's just a demo.
As long as it works even 3/4 as well as they are showing, the X1 is going to get a LOT of love in my household.
