Hands on with the NXE

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.
