      So the new dashboard is here. What are your thoughts?

      I was on the beta so I had time to get used to it but personally I myself didn't see the point in them changing it the amount they have done, I do like the new features they have added so far like LoveFilm which I get in my country and also the cloud storage aswell which is really handy.

      I must say, the new dashboard looks quite epic. It's very slick, nice interface. Although it's neat, I honestly was not ready for a change of this proportion.

      Yes I agree, alot of people are taking quite a while to adjust. When I first got it I was quite shocked and couldn't understand why they changed it the way they did, I guess the use of Kinect being possible meant they had to do it like this though.

      I .... HATE it. Loved the old style, it was so much easier to use. Very well laid out and easy to navigate, in my oppinion the new dashboard looks an absolute mess. Took me ages to find out how to get to the Last.fm app.

      I Don't understand the beacon thing either

      It is a bit of a pain with the set out of things to be honest.

      The beacon's had me confused at first but after using them I have realised what they now do, if you have a beacon set it will tell you when someone is online whom is playing the game you have the beacon set for and also if someone else has a beacon set it will tell you when they come online that they wish for others to play the game they have set in their beacon, so basically it is a way of telling your friends you would like to play a certain game with them.

      Oh right, Can't see me using that to be honest. Normally it comes up ____ is playing ____ then I can send an invite or party invite.
