Xbox One – Friends app and user interface detailed
Microsoft has released two new videos detailing some of the User Interface (UI) functionality for the Xbox One. The first video narrated by Major Nelson (Larry Hyrb) himself shows how the new friends app is adopting cool social networking features akin to Twitter so you can ‘follow’ other gamers as well as have friends.
The second video takes a more detailed look at the multiplayer setup and interface, building on the best matchmaking system in the business. It covers the new Reputation system, smart match, dedicated servers and community challenges.
The more we see and experience of Xbox One’s dashboard and interface the more impressed we are. This is not only a serious improvement on what the Xbox 360 is doing, but also much better than what we’ve seen on rival machines.
The Xbox One launch 22 November 2013.
