Looks much more responsive than the current gen consoles (as it should be).

 

And the interface looks far superior to any other interface that I would find displayed on an average persons smart TV, which is one of the things the XB1 is trying to replace. Some stiff competition from Sony I think though in that particular role, especially with that Vita TV thing. I wonder if those Xbox TV unit rumors are still true?

Yes, it sure looks a lot better than this....

LG do make nice smart TV interfaces.

 

Its fast and responsive which is what matters most, but like W8, it sure is ugly. I think it's the green tiles... Green is the colour for Xbox, but there's just too much white on green going on.

I don't think the way it looks will really bother anyone - the fact that it's looks incredibly responsive will compensate for that (the sluggish UIs were one of the most annoying things about the Xbox 360 and PS3 for me).

Yes, it does look better than that.  LG needs to go back to the drawing board.

I actually agree. We have 2 smart TVs - a Samsung and an LG. The Samsung interface, IMO, is butt ugly, but it's functional. The LG one, whilst very pretty, is not very easy to use - and everything takes twice as long. 

 

Sometimes a little substance over style isn't a bad thing.

Exactly, sure it could look pretty but if it's a pain to use then who cares?   Not to mention in the video the dude has a number of things pinned to the left that don't have to be there or can be removed to unclutter it.   Of course there's the whole beta thing going on as well.

It looks like absolute crap, just like Win8 and WP8. MS really needs to ditch this Metro crap and go back to the drawing board, because it looks like complete GARBAGE!!!

 

In your opinion, and in mine it looks awesome. As was mentioned above, current smart TV UI's are either pretty and useless or butt ugly.

The main problem with that interface is that there's no logic to it. You'd think you where switching apps at the bottom, but then you have a mix of content boxes and boxes with ap launchers in them...

The Xbox and PS4 both follow logical up layout ps based on a 2d cross moving navigation.

That thing, it follows a logic of, well just put random stuff everywhere so the user has no idea and have to search the whole thing through several times to find what he wants.

On top of that it's probably just as horrible slow to navigate as the Samsung and Philips ui's

Wow, I can't believe nobody commented on the lack of Ads.

 

People cried and moaned all this gen about the Ads on the 360 UI.  Well this vid shows a serious lack of ads.  I'm sure there could be ads within the marketplace ui, but it looks like MS moved them out of the main screen completely. 

 

That's a big win in my book.

 

As far as the look, the start screen looks fine, with your game getting the big tile treatment. The screen to the left with all of the smaller tiles looks rough mainly because its a bunch of green tiles.  If this is the same beta software we heard about before, then it seems like they are still working on it and that means time to clean up that wall of green tiles. 

 

The most recent articles on the updated UI shown behind close doors made no mention of an ugly ui or an issue with a wall of tiles, so maybe they have already changed it for the better.

 

For me, the only thing I think doesn't look nice is that left side wall of green tiles, so if they clean that up, I'm happy.  The performance looks great.

the wall of green tiles is my pins,meaning you customize what it looks like and you put whatever tiles you want to put there.

I was thinking about that.  It wasn't mention in the video, but I know they will allow you to create pins to almost everything in the dash, so I was wondering where that section was.

 

If that is the pinned section, then that makes me feel better about it since that is customizable.

even though i do not currently have plans on purchasing an XBone at least the navigation is the same as what they are doing with Windows Phone, and Windows 8 so that you have a common interface across devices if you want.
