New Xbox Live layout

So I don't much care for it, and it's not that new now, but it's still new to me. I find it awkward to be looking on the far left of the screen instead of the middle to determine what I'm doing on 360. Am I the only one who is bothered by this a little? Sure it looks nice, but functionally it's a bit off I think

It took me a little while to get things out of it, mostly just the marketplace.

I'm used to it now, it's a bit odd but I like the ability to see all my achivements and all of that stuff

I like the functionality, I hate the avatars. They are a blatant ripoff of the Wii Miis. Wish microsoft would have come up with something a bit more creative.

Totally agreed on the 'avatars' fr0g. It's an absolute shame.

MS still have their name on the console, even if they don't have their fingers in all the pies. They should be able to come up with something much better.

I guess since Sony have gone for the realistic home idea, and nintendo for the simplistic Mii, representing a human being in a different way is just too hard a thing for them to think of.

I'm pretty sure they could have come up with something though. Even if most bases are covered and copyrighted.

Honestly though, do we need that stuff? I liked just having a little gamer picture. Much like in forums like this one where you can choose whatever photo you'd like to represent you. I don't need to make a miniature cartoon version of myself when I'd rather just throw up a Floyd reference.

We certainly don't need it. It's just jazz to sell a console. I'm just glad I can actually make my avatar look like me
