as much as i love my ps3 things like this keep making me smile about my 360!
2.41 for ps3 barley brings in game XMB and m$ just update the ENTIRE 360 front end!

It looks very clean, very swish, and im really looking forward to this update!!!
Not sure whether I like it or not. I really like the current dashboard, hopefully you will have the option to keep it the way you have it. Mind you the free movie downloads is pretty interesting.

It's one of those things isn't it? We've all got so used to navigating the dash the way it is that the change won't be welcomed by all. Personally, I'm looking forward to something different.

Well i don't like the new look, looks like they took Sony's XMB and switched rotation. Just wonder if they'll try and rip people off by charging by new backgrounds like they do at the moment.

Oh, and i don't like the current 360 blades either.
To me it's very….. hmm… Apple-like in all honesty.

When I saw the music and video's folders I immediately thought of the ipod touch UI and their way of navigating folders etc.
