XBOX ONE will not feature a GUIDE like the XBOX 360!!!!

The Xbox guide button will function much differently on the Xbox One than it does on the Xbox 360. While new controller still has a similar functionality, users will open the dashboard directly on the new hardware. Instead of opening up a guide system, whatever application is being used on the Xbox One will be minimized and continue running in the background.

Speaking on the Major Nelson podcast a conversation between Larry Hyrb and Marc Whitten gave a few new details about this new functionality.

Hyrb explains: ”I became accustomed to the new dashboard and the fact that when I hit the Xbox button whatever I’m doing shrinks down, and all of a sudden there’s the whole dashboard.” At which point, Marc Whitten also explains that the Xbox One is “All One Thing”. ”All of the power of the Xbox is there right behind that Xbox button, ready for you to move between experiences.”

These comments came from the same podcast where Marc Whitten confirmed the increase to the Xbox One GPU speed, and firmware tweaks that are increasing the power of the console as final dev-kits make their way to developers.

Huh. Pretty cool. Yeah I guess the GUIDE is completely useless if you always have instant access to all the dashboard features while your game is paused.

The Xbox has finally mastered Alt-Tab.

Sounds more and more like the Windows 8 GUI

Will the games still pause?

Sometimes I push the guide button to pause a game when the game won't pause normally.

I hope they don't remove that.

Unless its a multiplayer game I assume so. It takes you to the dashboard and allows you to resume the game instantly, right where you left off, so I am pretty sure that it should pause the action.

With that being said, I have to ask, what single player games do not let you pause? Or do you mean during critical sequences like QTE's?

To sum it up...they copied the XMB from the PS3.
