New Xbox 360 Dashboard

40 posts in this topic

As i'm sure most of you know over the last years Microsoft have been doing some research and have come to the conclusion that every owner of an Xbox 360 is 6 years old and have decided to add bright squeaky clean idiotic designs for no fucking reason and to add a 'totally original design' in the form of Avatars...I mean it's not like they've ever been used..

oh wait

Now my opinion on the matter is pretty plain...it can fuck right off...but whatever I'm hoping to be proven wrong...I like my blades system with my background

Any other 360 owners (or not) thoughts on the matter

I will admit that it is a [seemingly] stupid idea, as you've said...

... But I'll also admit that the avatars - so far - look pretty nice, and the dashboard looks more refined than the simple "channels" on the Wii.

Personally, I can't wait. I just hope / wish it's optional, if I don't like it.

Fuck avatars, I'll play The Sims if I want that shit. I love the blades and my background wallpaper of a topless Keeley Hazell spread out for me.

I seriously thought you were going to start showing us face plates.

But then I realized you were still talking about something horrible.

i like the fact you can download games onto your hard drive, but the avatar thing sucks, trying to hard to be like the wii.

also the new dashboard looks too.... empty really. i like my GOW background atm.

im hoping you can change the background and shit too.

Apparently you still need the disk to play the games off of the hard drive...

They've said that "you need to have it...it will be there but you can just avoid it and play your games...if you want to access the dashboard however you will have to go onto the new dashboard...the blades are still there...but we've removed them in favour of the new system..."

So it's exactly the same as before...only...not in the slightest and aimed at children

Even the Idea of an Avatar might have been passable if they were'nt Mii ripoffs...but you are supposed to be able to dress your shitty avatar...ya know once you've paid (real money) for new outfits

I just don't see why they can't be optional...like a 'blades' setting and 'mentally inferior' setting...I like my background of 'Underworld'...it's old but it's actually MY background...It almost seems like there was no purpose in allowing us to make the Xbox's our own with customisation if they were just gonna pull this shit...but like I said I really hope I am proved wrong by this and it turns out to be mediocre rather than shit...maybe you can keep your own backgrounds...themes and pics...maybe it's just an extra option...maybe it isn't...

All I'm saying is that if I wanted cutesy poo and avatars...I would have drilled a hole in my temple, had several children, purchased a Wii and then killed everyone in a bloody massacre after realising what a horrible mistake I'd made by getting a Wii

Awesome. Now I can install a game on my 360 while I'm installing a game on my PS3!

It'll be like doing twice the nothing at once!

Yeah I'm afraid to turn my 360 on. Can you, per chance, NOT use the update and use the original blades?

Of course...unless of course you ever want to go on XB live ever again

It's a mandatory update...you can't go on XBL without it

I INSTALLED THE NEW UPDATE, IT TAKES ME TO THE AVATAR SCREEN AND MY 360 CRASHES. NOW I GET THE RED RING EVERY TIME I TURN MY XBOX ON.

Does that include the marketplace, because I don't give a shit about XBL otherwise...

1. Lol.

2. Try unplugging everything.

I get that, but does it prevent you from downloading anything until you update to Shit 2.0?

Yes...you can't go onto live without getting the update

The second you connect to live it will tell you there is an update...if you don't want to download the update it will disconnect you from live

I hate to use the word "gay" to describe things that are incapable of sexual orientation, but that is pretty fucking far from straight.
