    It's not mentioned yet but if you do a system update check, it's ready for download.

    Probably getting slammed because it's a mandatory install. My friend and I were about to play Gunstar Heroes and in stopped him to download the Update. I want my motion backgrounds.

    Unimpressed with it. This big buildup surrounding 3.0 and it winds up being a dud. Those large fonts have gotta go, the screen looks so damn cluttered now.

    I don't like the large fonts either. I don't mind the Store Preview blocks, but the large fonts made me think that I was running in 480p. At least they should allow us to adjust. Haven't tried the new theme thingy, but I think on Thursday they'll probably have avatars.

    edit: I dunno if it was just me, but I booted up Ratchet and Clank last night and didn't get the Plsystation 3 Jingle.

    Not just you. Looks like they removed it for some odd reason.

    I really don't like that they removed that at all. I thought my system had locked up.

    I just chimed in on the blog to add my two cents. Seems like enough people are griping about it that they'll hopefully change it. Afterall they asked for our feedback :D  . Most of it is ok, I just don't like the large fonts, and Maybe something more stylish for the boxes around the friends, even if it does make them easier to see. I also like that they sorted the mail, so you could clean it out easier.

    And in the future I would love to have a Ratchet and Clank theme where they are playing video games like on R&C2 (They are playing Jack and Daxter and Sly Cooper in a little looping animation).

    There is no change to the interface. This isn't n overhaul like the 360 last year. It's just a tweek, but it's not all pleasant. Everything is exactly where you left it and access to things you accessed before are exactly where they were before. They just made some strange choices. If we're playing video games, chances are we can see small fonts.

    It's a shame, because I like some of the "ideas" presented. Just the execution of some of it seems questionable.

    I remember when I'd plug Miracle Warriors into my Sega Master System and it would go "Woooop, SEGA". That was my interface.

    Anyway, hopefully they listen to the feedback and at least give people the option to shrink their fonts and make the friend Boxes theme-related, kinda like the icons.
