Xbox One dashboard with transparent tiles spotted

4.6
Oops. Major Nelson, the prominent figure behind the Xbox One console, was streaming content recently and it looks like he accidently let slip an updated UI for the console. As you can see in the image at the top of the post, it looks like transparent tiles will soon be coming to the platform.

The updated tiles give the interface a more modern look but do not appear to add any new functionality. Besides the tiles, it des not look like there is much ese new in the screenshot.

While Microsoft is not pushing out an update for the month of December, we expect this update, along with some other new features, to arrive in January when the team returns to their monthly releases of dashboard updates.

After seeing the tiles, do you like the new look? While we don's know if Microsoft will let you toggle the transparency on or off, considering how they are quite flexible with customization, it would not surprise us if this was an option.

Grimlock good because the backgrounds kinda useless because you cant see it. Would be nice to see this.


I know right, just black colors and plain colors look so ugly

Gulp I think ps4 need to copy xbox's dashboard and xbox need to copy ps4's server lol


if anything server is ps4s weakness havent you seen how much its been down and every time you want to get in some kind of "maintenance" if its not being hacked


ps4 servers?! Sounds sensible, lets turn the xbl servers off intermittently then?
