Tonight microsoft pushed the NXE to the members if the preview program. The install went smooth and upon first login you are prompted to create your avatar. A 3d figure that represents you in all your gaming endeavours.
Screenshots have been on the net for months now so I won’t go into the looks. It’s smooth, pretty and slick.
The “install to disc” option works exceptionally well. Load times are drastically improved. Fallout 3 responded like lightning.
A pleasant surprise was found in the video playback. Xvid files played back at full screen by default. Saving me a few button clicks. Small thing but speaks to the fit and finish of it all.
