    2 Apps I miss (for Germany):

    1st: SkyGo - I was looking forward to use this app to watch the Champions League and some other stuff on the Xbox One because it is very very slow on the Xbox 360. Hopefully they will use their time to add true Dolby Digital.

    2nd: Xbox Tournaments (Virgin Gaming) - Never used it on the Xbox 360 but was looking forward to use this app to try earning some cash playing Fifa 14.

    Well yeah, and then they could bring back the "Sales and Specials +" App. One can dream...

    Don't get me wrong, because if you want them then that's good for you, I just want to get rid of the current apps blade on my 360, I can only imagine how bad they will be on the XB1....ps are you saying you can delete any/all apps from showing up on the XB1???
    Have you seen the Xbox One dashboard walkthrough from last week? There were three tabs: Pins, Home, and Store. That could be all there is or that's just how they had it customized, showing a deep layer of customization.
    Nah I didn't see it, but I will get to checkout the dashboard for the XB1 in 10 days, so it will be interesting to see if I can delete them or not.

    Apps aren't pre-installed. And even if they were, Microsoft is very good when it comes to bloatware (you can uninstall pretty much all non-essential apps on WP8 and Windows 8, for example).

    On the lack of Youtube, I blame Google (considering there's no Youtube app on the PS4 either, the decision is probably coming from Google). However, Microsoft has stated the version of Internet Explorer on the Xbox One will be able to play Youtube videos, so we can only hope that provides a similar experience as a dedicated app.
    Probably better to be honest, dedicated apps are horrible for it on xbox.

    TV, TV, TV, TV, TV!

    And I thought it was just a games machine. You remember games, don't you Microsoft? They're the reason we all bought the 360. It's what TA is all about.................

    Never before have words come together in such a purely harmonious way to make something so truthfully hilarious and ironic. Fucking amazing. 10/10 sir.

    if M$ got sued for monopolisation (spelling?) for putting Internet Explorer on their Windows operating system... shouldn't the same apply to their media center/gaming console?

    In short: will I be able to install Chrome on the xbox one at some point?
    If you want to use Chrome so badly I hear they have the internet on computers now. Not sure, I'll have to check and get back to you.
    Yes, please do. I can't wait for your next stupid smartass comment on here.

    Xbox One dashboard - now with EVEN MORE advertisements and crappy apps you will NEVER USE! 99% crap 1% Xbox related content when you first start it up

    Also to make it even better, they have made it JUST LIKE the windows 8 desktop. Oh wow.. who WOULDN'T love 1000 tabs which are basic crappy pictures and fill the screen!

    Also now, to get straight to your game INSTANTLY, all you have to do is watch 50 advertisements, 5 videos of the new Xbox One even though you already have one, and some Netflix shite that nobody wants or cares about anymore as the only films they have are from 2002-2005.

    Nah, I'll think I will stick to my Xbox for gaming, and my Laptop for everything else. The only good use my Xbox has other than gaming is it can play pirated games. Arrrrg!!
    No one wants Netflix? Mmhmm.

    Plus you brag about pirating games... way to support the developers.

    Way to go, telling that on a site that directly links to your Gamertag!wave Pirating games kills the industry. I hate you.

    Yes, but unless you have additional things, you are stuck on your small screen size. I like that I can easily display things like Netflix or Youtube on my 47" TV with a screen designed for viewing video, rather than my 4.3" phone or 17" laptop. Not to mention it;s a lot easier for multiple people to watch at once.

    I will never use a single one of these pointless goddamn apps ever!

    The only app I would ever use would be a TA app smile

    Is there an app to play games?

    I do hope these 'apps" are not installed on your Xbox One unless you want them. However, something tells me that these useless things will be installed on my console whether I want them or not (I don't).

    If Microsoft allows us to not install these unless we want them, I will retract my statements. Given what they did to the 360 in the last couple of years, though, I will assume the worst.

    No you aren't. That's why I have an iPhone, for proper apps.
