Microsoft plans to update Xbox 360 Dashboard UI for 2013
 
 

Who hasn’t heard of the Xbox phenomenon that has swept the world by storm in recent years. The Xbox 360 Dashboard is being updated for the year 2013. As for the new Xbox it will be launched close to the middle of May.

Xbox is the gaming giant that the whole globe looks to for its fast and furious entertainment needs. The brand new sample is due to be announced on the 21st of May in Washington. Yet there are other acts of renewal besides this one.

According to The Verge, the Xbox 360 Dashboard is being updated too. Gamers who wish to transfer their loyalties towards the next generation Xbox can now do so thanks in no small part to the 2013 update. It is a last ditch effort by Microsoft which wants to make sure that messaging and accumulations carry over to the new portal. Meanwhile, experimentation with the user interface was kept in mind too. The Xbox 360 Dashboard bears an uncanny likeness to Windows 8.1 which is still in the pipeline. Like the latter it too has smaller tiles.

The launch of Xbox 360 Dashboard is set for a date between June and July. The timing is good since gamers will be on the lookout for some spanking new Xbox hardware. As for the basic competition, it comes from Sony’s PS4. The fundamental changes that may be made in the Dashboard series include black and white hues that are inter-layered. As for the curtailment of the Microsoft Points currency system that too is in the works. This takes it a step closer to Windows 8.

The name proposed for the new gaming console is the Xbox Infinity. Whether this will be the finalized version of its epithet is a moot point. The name will be decided earlier than usual (on Tuesday). This series of changes to its past versions is a fresher course of sorts. It will renew and rejuvenate the image of Microsoft as the creator of Xbox.

The Xbox gaming console has always been a part of the experience of people who are seriously into video games. Even people who are otherwise physically active like the fastest man in the world, sprinter Usain Bolt, may in their spare time decide to opt for tons of video games (as Bolt is rumored to do so). The adrenaline high obtained from playing video games is similar to the hormonal changes induced in the human body by watching horror movies. With Microsoft creating new experiences for everyone from gangly teenagers to upwardly mobile young adults to middle-aged couch potatoes, life will be like an exciting roller coaster ride instead of a boring merry-go-round cruise in the future.
