I still don't have it, is anyone else still waiting for it too?
Where the hell is this Xbox 360 update?
The update isn't something to be excited about anyways. The wait to have IE can't be that important to you guys...at least I hope not.
I'm not so much "excited" about it as I am just dumbfounded that it is taking this long to push out a update like this to everyone.
Got mine today was a bit pissed that as a someone that has gold for 6 years was put at the end of the queue. Checked it out for 5 mins and will probably never use it again apart from Youtube and buying games. The should of made the home screen a ad free tab. for all the stuff that matters to you. For example I could have Youtube, New Arcade titles, Demos. Minecraft, Trials, EVO My Games and My Music folder all on the home screen instead I get Launch Game, Ads and a My Pins FOLDER., I was under the impression this would be like any IOS\WP7 device being able to move your most used items to the homescreen, plus IE is terrible on GB can't even watch videos without signing in, the keyboard is junk that you can't use the d pad to type got so angry that I pluged in my chat pad. Really hope next Xbox just looks like Windows 8 metro interface instead of this crap.
Apart from that, it's an okay update - it's essentially what the first tiles/metro update should've been. IE is pretty useless (I think it would be much more interesting if you could run it as a background application or something, almost like the guide button in that you could bring it up whilst playing a game or using another app like Netflix or whatever), but I like that the tab order has been rejigged so it goes Home > Social > Games, rather than shunting games further down the list. Not much else changed, really. Now that we have this unified design across Xbox/Windows Phones/Windows 8, it'll be interesting to see where MS takes these annual updates in the future, or if we're stuck with the tiles aesthetic for the foreseeable future, into the next Xbox and beyond.
