Meh. But I do like the Voice control with Kinect.

Only been able to take a cursory look at it. New interface seems more manageable, and I like the new NetFlix app. No Kinect to test with.

I like it better than the last one. Seems more organized. However, after the update it wouldn't let me sign into xbl. Network and xbl connection was fine, I just couldn't sign in. anyone else have this problem?

o_O has any one platform seen so many UI changes? Wowza. I still don't see what was so bad about the blades of the original UI. :lol:

Also, they're calling it Xbox Metro (according to this video on G4) so it should definitely look a lot like Win7 Phone and Win8 Preview.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
