So far I don't like this new update much. It's ugly. I don't know why they needed to change the dashboard like this, it was nearly perfect and easy to use.

Not good news. I haven't tried it myself just yet but the impressions I had from the youtube video weren't good at all.
I completely agree that the UI on the dashboard and guide were pretty much flawless. No need to redesign.

This one makes perfect sense given the original was only on PS and making sequels as standalones is never a good idea unless you're a big name. It's the Tales series I am confused by. ToV performed rather nicely on the previous Xbox, so I am confused as to why they didn't try to go multiplat with that series, which was a more affordable alternative, though given the quality of the recent releases, I am kind of thankful they didn't port those. And ToV was indeed the oddball in that it had a Microsoft budget and really was unusually high end for the series. 



It was Britain, it is America, tomorrow France and next year, the world... 

Warning: This poster has a very negative opinion of Sony and Nintendo, Idea Factory and companies Tecmo Koei, EA, BioWare, Blizzard, Treyarch, Infinity Ward, Kadokawa and Sega. If you have very positive views of these and a negative view of Microsoft or Bethesda Game Studios, AVOID ENGAGEMENT AT ALL COSTS!

    I feel I should point out that they most likely legally have to say it's not in development for other platforms, Sony seemingly paid for a timed deal, it was announced as a console debut at a Sony conference (which Shuhei later clarified on twitter means timed console exclusive). So this statement in no way rules out yesterday's rumor, which was backed up by multiple sources supposedly, that NNK2 would come to XB1 at an unspecified date. 

    I agree though about Tales. I feel like the next one will come to XB1, almost everything Namco Bandai is coming to XB1 now. Hideo Baba is gone now, and he was a notorious Xbox hater who was most likely keeping the series from Xbox. We've heard rumors that they are dropping their ancient last-gen engine for the next game and possibly switching to Unreal 4 (almost every Namco Bandai Unreal 4 game is coming to XB1). I have high hopes that the next Tales will be full multiplat, Steam/PS4/XB1/Switch (a Tales game was already announced for Switch).
