    Me too, just another round of beta invites today. Nov 19th has been the official launch for a while now.

    Kind of. If you press the Guide button then it'll bring up a condensed version of the old blades system. It has all the basic functionailty to it but will just take you to the part in the NXE if you select something.

    So, what about the old backgrounds/themes? Are they now redundant with the blades having gone?

    I got in the beta and it's awesome. Much better than the blades imo. Also, Netflix integration is spectacular. I seriously think it will sell systems.

    Probably. But there's been some people saying that the old themes may still work with the NXE.

    Cheers, I haven;t been keeping up to date with this so that's what I needed.

    Although, why do I have the feeling that the UK will, yet again get a shitty cut down version with limited functionality?

    We're not getting Netflix, that's for sure. It would've been ace if they could've done something similar with Lovefilm.

    Might be in my head but I find everything in Dead Space loads much faster since I've installed it. Also, my Xbox is quieter than my PS3 for the first time ever! Good stuff so far
