    I thought this new update came out on the 16th? I still haven't been prompted to update my Xbox 360 here in the UK yet.
    Apparently the roll out is over 2 weeks, so you may not get it until the end of the month...

    Lie with passion and be forever damned...

    You're missing fuck all - my experience is less stable since the update (I think, the beta just seemed to turn in to the finished product). I have to just bypass the main menus completely and use the guide, a lot.

    I still haven't got it either. It's a bit odd when 2 different XBoxes in the same room are connected to Live and don't have the same dashboard...

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

    Finally got it today. I like how the recommendations section suggests I buy games I've already completed....

    Is it recommending DLC for those games?

    must admit I still haven't actually bothered exploring the new dash beyond noticing pins are now available and that it looks more cluttered...

    Karma for buying a theme.

    Under your social tab I think.

    Theme change is on your user page. Can't quite remember the names of everything but go to your 'friends' tab, select yourself and it's the third box down on the left-hand side. Spent ages trying to find it over the weekend so I could turn on the free Wreck-It Ralph theme on my US account. :)

    They still sell themes?

    Remember when those were important?

    :D

    No, but seriously - they were all the rave. The windows seem so large as to render them pretty insignificant these days, though. I have a Fable II one, but the only thing it seems to change is the background colour.

    Good thing I only bought that one.

    I keep a live wire and a puddle of water near my xbox.

    I quite like the internet on the xbox, seems fairly robust so far. Although I'm going to need to get a chatpad to use it properly.

    I have a chatpad. It's actually pretty awesome.

    As awesome as a tiny keyboard can be, anyway.

    These are the best thing ever for playing Quarrel.

    Even if I still can't type faster than some of the cheating AI!

    Hooray - I finally got it!

    It isn't the worst thing that's ever happened to me!! Just looks like there are more windows than before... more windows I have no interest in.

    The thing that has pissed me off the most about the last two shitty dash updates is that they obscure even more of my lovely Alan Wake theme.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    First they had the 2D themes, then a dash update made those useless, so we had to buy "premium" themes in order to stay hip, and now those are also useless.

    I'd like my 120pts back.

    What a fucking surprise. Today is the final day for Update rollout, and I turn on my (4yo, 20Gb model) Xbox only to get a single red-light E73 error message (I/O issue - I am connected to via Ethernet cable).

    I have since "fixed" the Error via Youtube, which involves stopping the fans rotating for a several minutes (scary as fuck), and now downloading the update...


    Anyone who says updates don't potentially somehow fuck with the system will be shunned immediately.

    That sucks, Mofo!

    Had a go with IE - navigating isn't as completely terrible as I had imagined. No Flash, though, so expectations of the 360 becoming my new porn machine have gone up in smoke. Thus, I'll probably never use IE on it again.

    Just updated and I thought it would be hard to make the dash worse than last years but they have done a sterling job in blowing they thoughts out of the window. A home screen should have information on they games you play and your profile stuff like game in the box, account info and achievements. More sub menus of menus.

    Right now I have the large square giving me a halo 4 advert, the 4 smaller squares of adverts including men in black 3, lego lotr, netflix, forza horizon and kinect.

    Why not giver the subscriber control of their home screen, no doubt to much to ask.

    Why do we need to be subjected to advertising when we pay for our gold subs every year.
