    Just a little reminder for fellow Xbox 360 owners that the NXE is coming TOMORROW, which means today is the last day of the good ole' dashboard before Microsoft upgrades it. Enjoy it while you can.

    I REALLY hope my version 1.0 themes are still useful when the NXE comes...

    I'm excited to finally be able to take advantage of the netflix play now feature, after having been screwed out of it the last year or whatever because of being on all macs. I'm gonna watch crap I don't even wanna see now just to make up for it!!

    If it bricks mine I think I'll give up and get a PS3. As my Xbox is outside warranty and you know they never admit to an update causing anything to go wrong.

    Not so much excited as nervous about potential system damage from what is, ultimately, an unnecessary menu redesign.


    Oh and we get Mii's too........ big whoop

    I'm not all that thrilled about it either. The netflix thing from what I hear is cool, but Im not a subscriber to that.

    Nope. I think it's stupid and you should have the option of keeping the current layout and still be live-compatinble instead of being forced to use this shit.

    Nope. I'm not excited. I'm worried, but not excited.
    Okay, it looks a bit prettier and probably does some other stuff. Big whoop.

    I'm excited for the Netflix thing, although "excited" might be the wrong word. I pretty much only use my 360 to stream media anymore though, so I don't give a shit about the mii's or friend list updates or any of that crap.

    I just checked my friends list (on xbox.com) and one of the guys on there seems to have had the update. His gamercard's still showing his old gamerpic with the Mii/Avatar stood next to it.
    So it looks like gamerpics are still going to be present at least in a little way.
