Half of NXE’s features were ‘cut out of the service’

Jerry Johnson, European Xbox Live boss, has told CVG that “half the things [Microsoft] wanted to do” in the New Xbox Experience were “cut out of the service.”

Johnson continued: “One of the nice things we did was this architectural change to make things more published and driven from the service. All of a sudden we opened up the platform to say ‘I don’t have to wait until once or twice a year to release something onto the dashboard.

Primetime, a feature stripped from the NXE for launch, has now been given a release date of spring 2009. The New Xbox Experience will be available to download from Wednesday 19th November.
