Yeah, I figured. It's downloading really slow anyway, so it's almost not worth it. I've been downloading it for almost an hour and I'm at 4%, I might as well just wait until tomorrow and buy the game. :P
"The themes backward compatibility is just tacked on so people can't demand their money back for themes they've previously purchased. It was never designed to be good. Although I think anyone stupid enough to pay for a theme deserves to be burnt (no offense, I'm just exaggerating, I just think themes are a rip off, it's your money you can do what you want with it)."
To be honest I feel that way about themes as well, i normally do not waste money on them. I would say that I have only purchased maybe 2 themes with my own money. All the others were from MS point cards that I have gotten through others or for free.
"It does most certainly suck as a person with around 60 themes not a single one goes with NXE no one can tell me they couldn't design the NXE around old themes its like they didn't even care."
That's how I feel. I have around 15 themes that I have bought and now they are completely useless, I feel a little betrayed.
"You can still see the whole theme when you click in the submenus, like videos, games, etc. I agree it kind of sucks for old purchased themes, but I'm looking forward to the new dynamic themes that are sure to follow."
On the other hand, I am a little excited about the new themes designed for the NXE, I just wish they had some way of reimbursing the old themes so we could use that money for the new ones. Even though that will never happen, Microsoft can't keep me from dreaming. :P
Anyone else not happy with the way themes look on the NXE? I purchased the Fable II theme shortly before I downloaded the NXE and was very happy with it, however, it clearly does not go with the NXE. For one, the whole bottom half of the screen is cut off with the grey "floor" that they have which only leaves the top half of the theme to be shown. Then, to top it all off, the top half of the theme is cut off by the "blades." The NXE is not very friendly when it comes to themes and it almost makes me want my money back.
Anyone else disappointed on how themes work on the NXE or is it just me?
