I love the new look, especially the new opening logo. Looks slick and snappy. All existing themes will work just fine. Avatar got redesigned mainly for Kinect.

Assuming is disables what has been mentioned in the thread, it is quite a while to wait till the announced Kinect release date (assuming they get released together) to get back to the norm.

I wonder if these updates will trickle to GFWL.

Doubt it.

Probably not. GFWL seems to be its own separate entity that just accesses the same service.

The PS3 interface may look better but has been organized by a complete and utter moron.

Anyone get this? It went live Monday. I totally forgot about it.

It's really slick. It's definitely smoother and faster. It's very similar to the last one, just "flatter" and easier to read.

Meh, it doesn't start the disc on startup (a known bug I think) and it is way too bright. Playing Halo at night where the menus are all purple, blue and gray and then pressing the guide button gives you a blindingly bright menu.
