Microsoft has told us our existing Xbox 360 themes will work with the redesigned dashboard.
The ugly grey background can be decorated with your giant Masterchief poster or your Marcus Fenix pumping iron pictures, and the Microsoft artists have cobbled together some mock-ups to illustrate how.

We're told to expect the changes sometime this autumn, and you can watch a lifestyle summary of them over on Eurogamer TV.
