    Yah, it looks very similar, just vertical instead of horizontal.

    New 360 update is live. Here is what it adds...

    http://majornelson.com/2015/09/17/x...dds-new-features-including-2gb-cloud-storage/

    That 2GB of cloud storage is nice to see. Guess I'll boot up it tonight.

    BTW, anybody going to try out the New Xbox One Experience? Preview members should have their messages asking them to opt-in or not. Better read the list of known issues before committing first...

    Thanks Reddit!

    I go the message for the invite, but will not opt in. I may later as they fix the known issues.

    I think everyone gets the message to opt-in. I've selected to opt-in, but it says pending, which means from there whether I get chosen/or when I get chosen to enter the preview dashboard.

    That's correct. I think I've decided to wait as well. I'm currently using Sling TV & my wife would never accept it not being able to load. Once they announce an update with fewer issues I will opt-in then.

    I opted in. I'm brave that way. Happy to test it out for mass consumption. Doubt I'll be anywhere near the first round. I have about 750 exp in the Preview App, where some other people are well into the 1000s.

    Xbox One overhaul is not for the feint of heart. Sounds like there are lots of problems expected at first. I'm going to be a good brave gamer, and risk a lot of issues for the benefit of everyone else. Praise me.

    Edit: Also remember, the new OS is an Opt-in process. If you are a preview member, you won't be updated unless you specifically opt-in to the new experience program using the preview app's registration option. So don't worry about Microsoft dumping this on your console without your consent.

    I opted in as well, despite seeing the massive known issues at this time. I figure by the time I get selected a good portion will be ironed out already.

    I really need to get of my ass and get an external for the X1. I can't get the X1 Tomb Raider until I clear some space. I'm trying to decide between a 2 or 3 TB HDD...specifically looking for one without needing external power.

    You only get reset if you leave the NXOE preview and go back to the current OS. Saves are all cloud saved now. And you either have discs or download for your games if you don't back them up to an external. Not really worried. I'll just stick with NXOE and ride it out until it's released. My guess is that patches will occur fairly rapidly and they'll want a pretty solid preview release in the hands of a lot of people before it's made available generally. I won't get in right away.

    Edit: That reddit thread says updates will be done twice per week.

    Only if you can connect it directly to the console like an external drive.

    for the purposes of just viewing media? Or for saving your games/using it as an external drive onto? If the latter, it would require a direct connection as Brit stated earlier, and also a complete format. Xbox does not like any other partitions on the drive except its own.

    Dash updates are going out today.

    New dash looks nice in Major Nelson's latest video...

    https://twitter.com/majornelson/status/644904841974710272

    First time they showed Snap Center. It's confirmed that Snapped apps have now moved to the left side of the screen. Still haven't shown Cortana or Search though. Everything else seems more refined & organized. I like the new Settings organization. Microsoft might have finally found a UI that could appeal to a lot more folks.

    EDIT: Youtube video

    They've shown a bit of cortana. The demo the guy was playing forza horizon and he was able to ask if a person was online by name, and then invite them to a party and dictate some text for a video upload.
