Home Gaming Reminder: NXE arrives today

Reminder: NXE arrives today

42 second read


Just a reminder to anyone who may have actually forgotten, today is the day that the New Xbox Dashboard Experience arrives.

When you get home and switch on your Xbox 360, you will be asked to update. Once the update is downloaded and complete, you can start creating your avatar and messing around with the new layout.

I am really looking forward to the new party chat that will allow 8 players to hook up and chat as well as move into game lobbies. All in all the new dashboard might not be as impressive as what Sony has planned for Home but I am really excited at the idea of never having to look at another dashboard blade go “whoosh” across my screen ever again.

    If the NXE goes live at 2:00am Pacific Time, November 19 and if my calculations are correct… then it means it’ll be available at 11:00am for us in SA.

    I have to agree on the avatars… pointless imo. Also, I hope that you can setup your menus so that it doesn’t show options like the Netflix stuff that we can’t use, just extra clutter otherwise.

    although saying that, we’ll probably still sit for an hour creating the perfect avatar 😯

    Tried to update this morning at 7am and nothing so I’m guessing we have to wait for America to switch on before the rest of us can download it.Times like this make me glad i sold my Arcade and got a Pro instead 😀

    should be available at 12, but with 20 mil + consoles to update, expect it staggered so you should receive it sometime during the next few hours.

    If a feature is not available for a specific region, it wont show up on the NXE. So if you have a UK/SA account, you wont see the NetFlix option.
