Speaking to CVG, Microsoft’s said that a ton of stuff was dropped from New Xbox Experience. Hardly a shock, but there we are.

“There’s still a lot of stuff we want to do,” said Xbox Live’s Jerry Johnson.

“Half the things we wanted to do [in NXE] we cut out of the service.

“One of the nice things we did was this architectural change to make things more published and driven from the service. All of a sudden we opened up the platform to say ‘I don’t have to wait until once or twice a year to release something onto the dashboard’.”

NXE releases on November 19. What’s left of it, anyway.
