It’s uses the same UI. Don’t be too upset.

We should all be upset because it's really, really bad.

Just checked, and I bought that back in 2016. Got a load of achievements on it and I don’t recall it ever crashing, so maybe the bug hasn’t been there from the start.

EDIT: good video though.

EDIT 2: And yes, the game crashes like hell now.

Thank you :)

I have managed to get it running a bit more, if you go on ubisofts site and log into your ubi account and accept everything this seems to stop the crashing bug, it's a pain though you shouldn't need a PC to get your Xbox game running right.

No news yet on a exact date, might find out on Tuesday but all games news is up in the air at the moment due to the protests.

No, of course, that’s fair enough. But I think that’s why some were dismissive - because they’ve already had it. Personally I’m glad to have it back in my collection.

Until they rehaul it after a year :shifty:


The irony being the last revision of the Xbox 360 interface was beautiful and still the gold standard for console fuctionality.

It really wasn't, boot up your 360 to see how slow it was.

Incredible to think people still believe this. Not only is it slow as hell it's also pretty weirdly designed. The current Xbox One UI is loads better.

I don't mind the Xbox UI. I mean, the home screen is still too crowded but the guide is streamlined right now and it runs fine at mo. Maybe people don't use the Categories feature much? I have a few, Current games, online/sp, 'everyday games' and others including Audio which brings up Spotify, Tune in, Soundcloud and podcast player apps and Video which brings up, Netflix, Twitch, Mixer and Youtube.

It took time but it's streamlined for my use...
