as always, missed opportunity by Sony and Microsoft allowed to 1up them.Cloud Storage for Game Saves and LIVE Profile. Here at Xbox LIVE we listen to your feedback. We are making it easier for you to sign into your Xbox LIVE account from any console at any time to access your game saves and full profile, including items such as Microsoft Points to make purchases, Achievements and friends. Cloud storage will allow you to enjoy the same great Xbox LIVE gaming experience even when you’re not in your own living room by giving you the option to store your “game saves” securely in the Xbox LIVE cloud instead of on a portable memory unit or your console’s hard drive. Gone are the days of “gamertag recovery.” Now all you need to do is sign in, no matter where you are!
Is this for gold only members or all members?
this feels dumb. like a waste of the cloud options. i'm hoping that since this was just the 1st day that this isn't all that is going to be announced. because if so i'm even more disappointed this yr than last.
i've been looking at the onlive game service because a friend of mines has it. its all very capable of being done on xbox. why hasn't it been done. games on demand would actually be on demand. may actually be worth the increased price tag. may actually make the xbox future proof in a sense because it wouldn't matter how big the game was. yeah the game may be 4 discs or whatever in the store but on live its not. for petes sake theyre using their name. if that's not a beckon i don't know what is.
i represent the uninformed consumer.
[/url]I'm trying to become more than what was predicted of me.
I'd love a faster UI on PS3 too... but alas, the past year of XMB updates were nothing short of disappointing.
Kept you waiting
Very nice. I am thinking I might pick a 360 up at a Xmas sale. Maybe a MW3 bundle or something. Just because I am a nerd and want to have all consoles, not to mention 90% of multiplat games run and look better on it AND, and this is a small reason but a reason nonetheless, most online commentators when playing with fans play on 360 because you don't have to be their friends to invite them to a game or something like that.
So I am glad new UI is good. I love how MS redoes their dashboard now and then, love getting that 'fresh console' feel with a big update like that. And improved performance is a huge boost as well, as Segitz said, would love some optimisation from Sony but been out many years now and other than footprint reduction (and it's still very high according to devs), Sony is barely touching XMB other than adding more items on it.
Sorry, didn't look further than the first page but I guess this is the most relevant thread: The new dashboard is out.
Smoother, faster, easier. Loving it. I didn't think I'd like the box design but hey, it flows, works and looks great, kudos to MS for proving me wrong on that one.
I was a beta tester so I've had this for some time now. I definitely like it as well. It's very simple.

I hope I can find a good deal on a new Xbox as well, can I get one for $100 yet? Not sure what I'd play besides Alan Wake and Tales of Symphonia, but I do like to have all good consoles before the gen is out. Then again, should I just save it for Vita?
But Vita doesn't have any cool Avatars like Xbox..then again I don't want to play the PS2 HD games with the Xbox controller (MGS/DMC) and some of them are PS3 exclusives...Hmm...
Darnnit!! stupid gen with all these split up options and games and stuff! I don't like it!! GRRRRHHH!! I'm Angry!
Screw you Sony for not thinking more about the software side of your console. Now I have to spend money on a box just for like 2 games and a cool OS and online

“Had the religion of Christianity been preserved according to the ordinances of the Founder, the state and commonwealth of Christendom would have been far more united and happy than they are. Nor can there be a greater proof of its decadence than the fact that the nearer people are to the Church, the head of their religion, the less religious are they.”

I think the new dashboard is majorly ugly. Also, when I go into my list of arcade games ("list", heh), I'm glad it actually loads quickly, but there is so much I have that it feels like it takes so long scrolling horizontally through all the boxes.
What is wrong with just reading and text? I don't feel like everything has to be so visual.
Oh but wait, with Kinect, everything needs to be ginormous so we can gesture over it.
In summary: whine whine whine.
I like the new dash - up to number 3 now
But somethings never change I dont like how Zune works; what would have been cool is Zune working inside the main tabs - instead everytime you want to play a video it rips you out and takes its sweet time to load up.
Cloud saves I have not tested yet but pretty nice 512mb of available anywhere storage to play with.
Also watching larry go on about the dash he shows a section called Indi games? I'l guessing Aussies dont get that
