  Xbox, why? The baffling incompetence of the Xbox One interface
Time: 03:43 EST/08:43 GMT | News Source: E-Mail | Posted By: Byron Hinson

It looks like an improvement. And as long as you arenít actually using it, it is. The Xbox 360ís sprawling, multi-layered, ad-splattered interface, crammed as best as the engineers could manage into hardware that was never designed to support it, has been replaced by an elegant three-pane view. Home shows recent activity, Pins shows user-created shortcuts, Store holds everything you might want to buy. Advertising, though present, is less obtrusive. Three blocks on the main screen are apparently targeted based on user activity, and even if they arenít then itís hardly the obstruction that it used to be. Not having a social feed in the main interface, like PS4, is a missed opportunity, although to Microsoftís credit it takes only a single button press to launch the quick-loading, Facebook-like activity feed. Itís when you try and do anything from here that problems arise.
