While PlayStation's XMB (or Cross Media Bar) has barely changed over its lifetime, the Xbox Dashboard has constantly changed and evolved. The biggest change was a complete redesign around the Kinect motion sensor and Microsoft's Windows 8 style. With the Xbox ONE on the horizon, it was only a matter of time before we got a taste of the new Xbox Dashboard.
It's a lot to take in, especially in just around a minute and a half. First off, the basic dashboard looks relatively unchanged from the current version. It's still centered around the Windows 8 graphical style - what's surprising is that Kinect isn't used to move the cursor.
Kinect is used for plenty of other features, though - flipping between Pacific Rim (good movie), a 'game' of Titanfall, a TV show, and a Skype call. Yes, a lot of the demo is scripted - again, it's not a real game of Titanfall, but a previously-shown demo - but it's impressive nonetheless. If the Xbox ONE can actually flip through that many different apps without skipping a beat, well...it'll be pretty tempting to use Kinect.
The Xbox ONE is due out on November 22nd.
