Also, I've seen people say they liked the Blades better.


So bad. Worse than what the PS3 has, and the PS3 is an empty shallow feature phone setup menu (with a pretty decent store layout hindered by horrible sort options.)

Someone in another topic called me an idiot for comparing that vast, blank empty space of pointless iconography to featurephones and saying it's infinitely worse than anything Xbox has had since the original Blades, but I think the picture speaks for the experience. It's a dead, lifeless shell sparsely populated with options and little to know interaction with the outside world.

My biggest issue with XMB is basically what I call "the Photoshop UI problem"... it worked just fine for what it was meant to do when it was initially introduced, but when more and more features were added, its purpose becomes less clear, and (in the case of Photoshop) eventually becomes so obtuse that only people who have been using the UI for years have any clue of what the hell is going on with it.

Would love to have the ability to radically reskin a console's system UI, but, sadly, I doubt that would ever happen.
