I get wanting consistency, but I kind of would rather they centered around the previous Metro-like interface on all devices. The new Xbox One Netflix interface is terrible and cluttered. I've hated it on Roku, on Xbox 360, and on the web, and now I consistently hate it on my Xbox One as well.

Actually yes. Didn't have a problem with the metro style. Had my recently watched and my list right off the bat. But the new one does load movies faster.

In 8.1 IE at least, the Netflix site is very similar to the Roku and Xbox One apps except without a header image.


And yeah, I'll take one scrolling list with larger boxes and a '...' button over 38 tiny sideways scrolling lists (only visible two at a time due to an obnoxiously wasteful header, with no negative space to make the individual items pop out more, and of which you can only see 5 1/2 items at a time anyway) in a heartbeat. Oh well, at least there's still Bing Search to find content.

I can get behind the "new" Netflix layout. I like that it's the same as to what I use on other devices. Great detail in this layout. The only thing that I would like to see added and I know this is not unique to the One, is a count next to each show within a category. It would make it easier to know when I've scrolled thru all of the listings.

Now, if they could fix the atrocity that is the vudu app...

No kidding. It sez "retry" or "VUDU app is unavailable" whenever a significant amount of time passes on pause/inactivity. You have to exit and reboot. Really annoying lately.

Thank you very much! I'd tried getting that little info overlay up by punching every controller button and trigger that I could think of, but I guess I never thought of clicking on the sticks. It works on Xbox 360 as well. Of course, I never use my game consoles for streaming video, but it's nice to know .

Hey, for those that haven't bought stuff through the Microsoft Store website recently, it appears they changed how they do things now. Last time when you bought a preorder game or something and got $10 store credit, it was a code only usable through the website for the Microsoft Store.

I had preordered Metro Redux and was expecting the same $10 credit (to be applied toward another preorder). But now, it's an Xbox code that you enter on Xbox.com or your console to be used for those kind of purchases. Now my Microsoft account has $10 additional bucks. Can you use Microsoft account money at the Microsoft Store website?

Now I can video chat with you. I can see the 2.5 you got and you can see in the blue/green speedo, fruit bowl/balloon holding outfit. Don't worry the PS logo is all set.

I'm in the camp that likes the old Netflix layout best. For one reason, the new layout doesn't have (that I can tell) the continue watching button. I watch TV series almost exclusively on Netflix and that is the button I 95% of the time. My Roku doesn't have it either and it bugs the hell out of me.

Xbox Live Gold Members Play Forza Motorsport 5 Free This Weekend

"In preparation for the launch of Forza Horizon 2 on September 30th, we’re excited to announce that all Xbox Live Gold members can enjoy Forza Motorsport 5 for free this entire upcoming weekend. Beginning at 12:01 a.m. PDT, Thursday, September 4 through 11:59 p.m. PDT, Sunday, September 7, Gold members in Xbox One markets can enjoy Forza Motorsport 5, in entirety and for free.

The Forza Motorsport 5 weekend will allow you to check out the full Forza experience with special in-game challenges, online play, and collect achievements and Gamerscore. After the weekend, you’ll have the option to purchase the game online from the Xbox Games Store or visit your favorite retailer and continue playing from where you left off."


Hope they do this for more games; although I can see a problem doing this with any campaign-centric single-player ones. Forza makes sense, since it is essentially an endless leveling-up-fest. Then again [in addition to promoting Horizon 2] maybe they're setting up Forza 5 to be a Games-With-Gold title, and this is a good way to spark a few last purchases.

That makes sense. That display is undocumented debugging code in the Netflix common UI (though much employed by end users); I don't think that the old Metro-ized UI was at all related.

"Continue Watching" wasn't a button, per se. The old UI presented 3 items from the "Recently Watched" list as a column of thumbs to the left of the big pane, with the label "Continue Watching" on top of the column. In the new common Netflix UI there is a "Recently Watched" row beneath the "My List" row; hit DOWN once to select the most recently watched title and the A face button a couple of times to resume (if you're using a remote instead of pad, you only have to hit DOWN and PLAY, but there doesn't seem to be a pad button which will immediately play the selected title). You might have to hit DOWN twice if there is a "featured" title filling up the screen (only "My List" displayed).

I don't think its desperation. I think its a wake up call. A lot of people only saw one thing...$499 vs. $399. Microsoft screwed up big time. Now they are simply asking WTF, really? Sorry!

Yeah, it's a fantastic deal. I'd be kicking myself too if I held on to my day one. If I was still strictly a console gamer I'd def pick one up again.

I still have my Day One console. It has been well worth getting it at launch. The only thing I am kicking myself for is not picking up a third Kinect 2.0 when the prices were super low on eBay.

Need for Speed Rivals now available in the Vault. New 20mb update for EA Access.


Also for early access games like Madden 15 & NHL 15, you get 6 hours early access. You don't lose those 6 hours or remaining hours left accessing those games after the release date. So for example if you still have 3 hours left after the game has released you still have access to the remainder of your time.

The 5.0 is here
