  • I liked the old Xbox one. Yknow, before they changed it thirty times.

    Now I like the Wii U’s best. Everything is right there, not cluttered with ads, and I can see what the community is talking about on the TV.

    Also, I was a fan of the XMB. Jus sayin.

    Ashley, if you look at the camera instead as the screen it looks waaaay nicer.

    • Mark looks directly at the screen because he’s on a laptop. I don’t because my camera is mounted on top of a 26 inch monitor and the area where it appears that I’m looking at the camera is a lot smaller.

      But you’re right, I can address the camera more during rants. 🙂

      User Interface. Like Windows, OS X, Linux etc. Except they’re discussing the next gen console UI’s, not computer Interfaces 😛

        ohhhhhh ok thanks! 😀

    I like the Wii U UI but I think it still needs a lot of improvments.

    I haven’t used the PS4 or Xbox1 UI yet. However I love the Wii U interface. The games and apps I use most are moved to the first tab. Always at my fingertips. And you can customize each tab to your liking. The only thing I didn’t like was its overcomplicated friending system. Ashley, what is it about Wii U interface you don’t like? How would you improve it?

    Edit: I forgot how unacceptably slow it was at launch. Coupled with the hard freezes. But since past updates it works great. No problems.

    Hey Ashley, sorry if i missed something but what happened to Nick? I didn’t see him in the last podcast either? And when i check the ps4daily he hasnt written any articles in a while.

  • majora :D

    No more mp3 version?

    • Sargon

      Apparently not. That’s too bad because I listen to podcasts at work and if I can’t download them through an RSS feed then I won’t listen to them at all. I was enjoying the audio podcast while it lasted.

      • KosmoCrisis

        You can add the YouTube channel to your RSS feed BTW. Not the same, but might still work out for you.

      • Oblivion

        Yeah it sucks. Most Youtube MP3 places won’t convert videos over 20-30 minutes long but this one will:

        PS4/WiiU/XboxOne Daily really needs to sort that out.

    How did he scratch his screen my 4 year old throws mine all over and beats it to death constantly not one scratch.
