(I am typing this out on my mobile phone…sorry if there is bad grammer etc…)
J just finished a demo that is showing an example of what the next generation Xbox interface could look like. Words can’t do it justice. Player avatars, gamer ranking, gamerzone and more. He just mentioned that ALL next generation games will support in game sounndtracks…through one universal user interface. Your friends list will also be accessed through one common UI….no more hunting for how to bring up your friends list. Friends list, media player and more is all quickly accessible via ‘the guide’. You need to see it to really understand it.
Wow…there are a lot of complex concepts here, so after you listen to my podcast (which I’ll get up on on the site as soon as we are done here)..watch the video of the keynote up on Xbox.com later today.
