New 360 Dashboard

For anyone who doesn't have xbox live

http://xboxlive.ign.com/articles/891/891275p1.html

Basically reforming the whole dashboard system. My manager is a beta tester for xbox and he only got it about a month ago so it might be later than projected dates. if this is already posted ( or released) report it or delete it.

enjoy anyway

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

Saw this in OXM recently and i think it's quite cool. I was never a big fan of the whole 'blades' thing (and i'm still not, because for some odd reason it decided to automatically choose the Live Marketplace blade at startup, and i still haven't gotten onto Live yet).
Sure, it is a blatant ripoff of the PS3 structure, but i don't care, as its a good idea.

On the subject of Rat Ogres:
But if we give them laser eyes and mounted guns, we'll have to bring in Clan Skryre, and everyone knows how much those limp-tailed snuff addicts overcharge.

Nothing wrong with ripping off a good idea sure.... The one thing that seems too gimmicky is that they might be using a kind of mii thing. Wii already have it, home will have very detailed ones and 360 is going for somewhere in the middle. That's the only thing I dislike about it

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

It came out today and is definitely not as dumb as the wii, I like it personally the only problem I have with it is that the themes are somewhat obscured now. Oh well!

Now this thread can be made into what you think of the new dashboard and what you like and dislike about it.

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.
