    Yesterday the NXE Preview program was released to another group of people and I was one of those people this time round. Of course the first thing I did was make a 3-D representation of

    The new Dashboard
    The new Dashboard
     myself. The choices you have at the moment is a nice selection for features, but the choices for clothing are small. We can all guess of course Microsoft will sell a bunch of liscenced content for clothing and all that other stuff.  
    The dashboard is really nice and feels more like an environment rather than a place you are stuck in before the game begins. The content is easier to find. The guide botton has also been revamped and works much much much better. There are some new live features as well, which I haven't been able to test because I am not a Gold member right now ( I need to upgrade again!) Themes are also nicer looking on the new dashboard as well. 

    Thats about all I have to say. I know when the NXE is available to everyone on Nov. 19th most people will enjoy the new dashboard a lot.
