First Xenon Guide screens

First Xenon Guide screens

Microsoft just released these first few images (I'd say mockups) of the "Guide" interface planned for the xext Xbox. This interface, common for all games, will allow the players to handle all the aspects of Xbox Live and custom soundtracks.

I don't know about you...But those "useless" features seems pretty damn cool for just an interface.

Change your settings. Because the pics are enormous on my settings. Xbox IGN has the entire Keynote speach that J.Allard made. Pretty interesting.

    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (1 minute ago)

    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (2 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (2 Hours ago)

    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What's this about Half Life not having decent characters? Seriously? It practically set the bar as far as that went. Alyx, Barney, Eli, G-Man to name a few. (2 Hours ago)
