Nearly every September Microsoft releases it's new Xbox 360 dashboard update to improve on everything it has to offer, but this year it's not looking too much better.
There was a video released showing what exactly the new dashboard is going to look like and I wasn't very impressed with what Microsoft had to offer. The dashboard as it is now is very versatile and more appealing to the gaming audience to make it feel like a gamer's console. With the new dashboard coming our way Microsoft has made things a little more neat and tidy which doesn't look well on the Xbox.
Even though this video is a pre-release and they can still change what they want it gives some idea of what's to come and it seems that they have simplified things too much and made it look much more bland. Given that you will still be able to choose your own theme I'm sure the visuals could be different but as it stands with the default settings the new dashboard is not something I'm looking forward to, Kinect or not.
P.S. The picture above is of the current dashboard :)
