The New Xbox Experience isn’t yet finished. It is still being dusted and polished, but will make it in time for it’s release on November 19th.

“It’s not,” said Major Nelson podcast regular “e” when asked why Microsoft doesn’t just ship NXE now seeing as it’s “obviously ready”.

“It’s really, really close, but there are a lot of things that surround the NXE, that are part of the experience, that aren’t necessarily in the code that lives in your console, and all of those need to be 100 percent done as well, not just the console code.

“So, we’re still just buttoning up all those loose ends, making sure everything works just right. The public preview is a chance for some people to get a taste of it. They’ll probably notice a few things moving around during the preview, but we’re almost done, and on the 19th we’ll be ready for everybody.”

November 19th is only sixteen days away.
