Fascinating interview with Microsoft on the conception of the incredible XBOX UI

NuAds never happened. It was talked about. Advertisers wanted it, but it didn't happen. I'm not saying there's no chance of it happening in the future, just so far it doesn't exist.

Also, I have yet to see an ad for anything I can't play or purchase on my Xbox One, which is fine.

LAYLOW12 SAID:


Like I said, you boys are dancing around and trying to to distract from the manufacturers words, it's not more important then what they said themselves but keep dancing and I'll keep posting the truth!


SIGMALONGSHOT SAID:

At one point not too long ago you were genuinely, and I mean this heartfelt - you were really a nice person to speak to. I'm not entirely sure what happened to you to make you so utterly hellbent at inducing Xbox schadenfreude, which makes absolutely no sense. These are games consoles. We play on them. Play. Joy. They're toys to enjoy.

If one person loves GI JOE and one person loves Action Man, who is to say that the GI Joe guy is a demon and the Action Man guy is the only sane one?

You're digging through the most dated and contrived of archives in order to abase the people that enjoy a toy that's not the toy you love most. How can you honestly not see that as concerning?

I'm asking you this as a person who reinstated you as a friend on this site with the optimistic belief that you can be a little more accepting and less antagonising.

Just... please think about it.


Who are you?

.


You invited me to some elite private room thing at some point. I'm Tommy. We connected at one point, but you're different now, and I'm kinda hanging on to the notion you'll change back.


I have many friends here on both sides of the fence, you are not one of them...

.


This is a real shame. You've abased me, called me an "alt account", ripped on my personal profile, completely destroyed my profession and said that a GUI artist isn't a "real game dev", and now, completely disregarded my existence.

I don't want to, but I'll accept it - you're one of those people that just wants to be a low-level internet antagonist.

It's a shame. Having spoken to you, you're intelligent and articulate. To hear you're being so neanderthal about it is a bit sad.

Never mind, eh? I'll delete you from my list.

Oh my. Can you drama any harder? You sound worse than a thirteen year old girl who just lost her first boyfriend. All because I posted what Microsoft said the intent for the Dashboard, UI is. What would you do if you had a real problem? I'd rather not know.

Guys, Laylow doesn't troll....

What are you guys doing attacking your own people now, Lol?

It's funny these guys dismissing Drive Club when they have never played it. FORZA, well we have played that game for years now and it's the same ole stuff again.

Also, look at the graphics on FORZA, both XBOX ONE games. The cars still have that cartoon look to them and for some reason every car looks like a shiny plastic toy and the backgrounds are straight out of the 360 versions. It's easy to see next gen on Drive Club but honestly, FORZA hasn't improved over the last gen versions and I think its due to the bottle neck on the ESRAM. It's a shame they went with a CABLE, TV and KINECT focused box over something dedicated to gaming.

NuAds never happened. It was talked about. Advertisers wanted it, but it didn't happen. I'm not saying there's no chance of it happening in the future, just so far it doesn't exist.

Also, I have yet to see an ad for anything I can't play or purchase on my Xbox One, which is fine.


Wrong. It's in the XBOX ONE games now, too.

Ok. So I assume you're wrong just like the last time you brought up nuads, and all you had was some year old speculation.

Rain don't bother.

Anytime you catch Laylow he chooses to ignore your point. I've already called him out on being a hypocrite.

I thought the boards would have gotten a little better because school started up again, jeez.
