Speaking at today's Microsoft TGS address, it's been revealed that the console's revamped dashboard will be released on November 19. And it'll be released on November 19 worldwide. That's just over a month away, calendar-watchers, so if you have any last words you'd like to say to your trusty old blades dash, now's the time to get them off your chest.
I hate the new dashboard enough that I've moved the PS3 to the top of my console preferences. From now on the 360 will only be used to 360 exclusive games. Whenever I have a choice I'll play the game elsewhere.
Forcing the player to wade through "cute" shit that we have no interest in makes no sense. Mii's and Home are both not only optional but you have to launch them to use them... they're not forced on the player.
This new system is not only terrible from a design perspective (so much wasted space), but forces the players like myself that have no interest in it to interact with it. No thanks, and I'll take my gaming dollar elsewhere.
