Remember the old days, where you would turn it on and if a game was in it, it would just fucking go?

You...can still do that if you want.

Not on PS3 or Wii, I don't have a 360. But I'm not sure, I mean you turn it on and it goes straight to the game logo. I'm sure the 360 shows the 360 logo first, which isn't straight to the game.
What? That's like the dumbest splitting of hairs I've ever heard. Even the Gamecube showed the Gamecube logo before the game.

I'm talking about SNES/NES/N64 style, thats what I mean when I say the old days.

I pity those who hear "the old days" and proceed to think Gamecube.

I know right, those are the same people who say fuck you to Super Mario Bros and fuck yes to the original Halo.

What's even funnier is when people go "I miss the old days" and those people are still in their teens or very early 20s 
Well you can only have nostalgia for the things you were around to experience. There is always going to be that generational gap where the last generation doesn't understand why the new generation likes the things they do.

I hope this makes the ads less every fucking were and cleans up the clunky ass UI a bit.

I didn't receive the update last night, nor this morning. Maybe it'll arrive by the time I boot it up tonight. Is this dashboard a bit faster than the last?

Can you navigate around IE with the iPad app? (Using it as a mouse an keyboard) I could see some use for that.

No that's not the point. 
It's the "Good old days" part, it's like they're already done with living so all of a sudden it's just "Ah the good old days of... 3 months ago"  even 12 year olds say it too "things were better in the good old days". It just seems weird to think of yourself as old at that age

When someone says "The good old days" they usually are just nostalgic for things they used to play or own. It does sound a little silly but I have caught myself saying it few times (I'm 21).

The ads sure are annoying on the front page, but this dashboard is noticeably faster to navigate on my xbox, i'm actually enjoying it.

The amount of ads is TERRIBLE though, this cannot be overstated

That's another dumb thing to say. I've been playing games since the NES came out, but to me, 'old days' even means when the 360 had Blades.

WTF are you people talking about? Those aren't ads anymore than the games listed on Steams frontpage are ads. They are letting you know what content you can choose to play/watch/listen to.

So fucking stupid.

The Good old days = N64/PS1 era, just to clarify.

It can be interpreted differently for each person, someone who is 14-16 may find the Gamecube "The good old days", to me the SNES-N64 and PS1 era would have been the hey day for video games, although the Gamecube had some of my favourite games of all time.

Banjo-Kazooie is my favourite game of all time..

Some of you are making far too much of the ads. Your ad free customized pins page is one step away from the home screen, and most of the ads on the home screen are usually related to games or things that gamers would likely enjoy, such as action movies. It's not as if there are dashboard ads for Preparation H or something.

More importantly, both the recently played and pins load SO much faster than any section of the dashboard ever did before this update. We're talking less than 2 seconds for the recent section, and just another second or two more for pins. There are loads of other changes and improvements as well, and I am quite happy with pretty much every one of them. This is literally the dashboard update I've been wanting for years.

Perhaps I'm being just a bit of a satisfied pessimist here, but if you REALLY thought Microsoft was going to remove all of the advertising that makes them millions each year, I really would consider adjusting your expectations of multi-billion dollar companies.

And if you want the blades back, there's a good chance you're remembering them with rose colored glasses.

That's not truth. They went from three ad spaces to six. That's 100% more ads, not 33%.

But none of that matters, because the latest dashboard is still the best software update that MS has released since the introduction of party chat.

I have also not gotten it. East cost. 

#71 Posted by mlarrabee (2993 posts) -

I don't know if the beta-release silently converts into the full update, but I figured I would be pushed the official, universal update. Nothing yet and I'm half an hour from the Xbox team.

#72 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

OK sweet, they must be rolling in out in waves then or something.

To ensure a stable release, this will be a gradual deployment across subscribers and regions over the course of the next week. Our initial deployment will reach approximately three million consoles worldwide, with additional users being updated over the course of a couple weeks. Don’t panic if you don’t see an immediate update, just keep checking back in.
#74 Posted by Rotnac (785 posts) -

I guess west coast people are getting the update first. I also haven't got an update yet on the east coast.

Still no update Northern Alberta.
