X3F reports that Microsoft’s New Xbox Experience has been leaked onto the internet.

However, those of you wishing to partake in piracy and risking the wrath of MS’s 9th-ranked assassins better be warned that installing the update means Xbox Live is disabled until November 19. So look before you leap. Or probably don’t leap at all.

    I’ve installed it, and it looks gorgeous! Everything loads so quickly, from the menus, right down to checking your achievements, it makes the PS3′s trophy synchronising look like a joke by doing the syncing during the sign-in process! You fire up the dash, you’re literally seconds away from everything, more often than not through different routes as well!

    I’ve already copied Dead Space to my hard drive. I think as well as games with lots of loading, that horror games will benefit big time from the quieter machine. Currently installing Far Cry 2 to the drive. Can imagine games like Fallout 3, The Orange Box and Oblivion making the most of it too.

    My biggest problem with the new dash is and always has been the new avatars. I despise the idea and can’t believe Microsoft have tried so shamefully to embrace the casual market. If people want to create avatars that’s great, let them. But i don’t want to, and hate this fucking little fraggle standing on my dashboard. I hope there’ll be a way to remove it at a later date.

    All in all though, Microsoft really delivered on this, big time. Looking forward to November 19th when it actually launches fully, will be able check out how the game and video marketplaces look, and how the new friends list looks. I’m very happy with what i’ve got in the meantime though.
