Update coming to make the UI less terible!

Quote from Marc Whitten:

"The feedback we've gotten is pretty valid; some of the social stuff is hidden or harder to use than it was on the Xbox 360. So you're gonna see us come out with an update where, well, we're going to fix those things. As a person who's been pretty involved in building Xbox Live for the last decade, I take it pretty seriously when people say it's harder to get into a party, and the defaults aren't right, and I don't like the model. So what I'm trying to do with the team is kind of theme some stuff up. Let's take an update and really go through a big list of what we're hearing from customers, what we know is broken with the architecture, areas that we want to improve or complete. I think that's a theme you'll really see us push on -- that Live experience."

I just don't understand why they didn't do this in the first place

whatever they do it won't be switching from the windows 8 model. Its a big part of what they want to do as a company. "one experience for everything in your life".

I'm fine with it, I actually like that my PC and phone and console all look and feel the same. Sure, there are definitely areas to improve on, but the windows 8 model isn't the problem. Its how certain aspects are executed in the model.

Well then it doesn't matter what they change, it is still going to suck.
