A number of hands-on articles have gone up about the Xbox Experience (NXE), here are review on them from

You can get a good feel for the new interface (still in Beta) in this video.

It not only looks beautifully Apple-esque, but it’s also surprisingly fast considering the greater visual complexity. It’s a big improvement over the original ‘blade’ navigation, which continues to survive in teeny-tiny form as a quick launch menu.

Even hardcore gamers will love the new interface, says our sister site GamesRadar.

I’m really looking forward to the NXE (despite the fact that the UK won’t get the Netflix support that’s impressed many testers. Will Blockbuster step in?). What with Windows 7 breaking cover, Microsoft is having a good month. We’ll brush the Zune under the carpet for now.

Old Xbox, New Xbox Experience

The NXE is the latest salvo in a next-gen console war that’s increasingly being won by Microsoft. OK, considering the runaway success of the Nintendo Wii, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are bogged down in a tussle for second place. But few would argue that Microsoft’s Xbox 360 is a compelling buy as Christmas approaches. I guess I better start saving up for all of my buddies.

According to Engadget, the Community Games channel on NXE “allows XNA developers to distribute their games in an App Store-like environment.” Considering the runaway success of Apple’s online store for the iPhone and iPod touch, this can only be a good thing.

The redesigned interface is only a part of an aggressive strategy. As the NXE launches, Microsoft will also roll out new community games to boost the massive roster of downloadable content that’s available on Xbox Live.

Microsoft also has one of its best gaming line-ups going into the Christmas period. Fable II has already hit (and to great acclaim), while gamers are eager to get their post-apocalyptic groove on with Fallout 3 and Gears of War 2.

Crucially, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 will be the cheapest console on sale this Christmas. Sony has reiterated that it won’t be dropping the price of the PS3 any time soon. While the 60GB Xbox 360 is cheaper than the Wii.

There’s a crumb of comfort for Sony. The PlayStation 3 might not be able to compete on price, but it’s still one of the best (and cheapest) Blu-ray players you can buy. If there’s a demand for HD movies this Christmas, the PS3 will sell well. As to whether you should buy into Blu-ray… that’s another question
