I Heart the XMB

Article Excerpt:

"As of late I have been accused of promoting nothing but negative news towards the PS3 and particuallary the 3.0 update. Well you know, maybe that is right. I realized that there is plenty of good news and plenty to love about the XMB in particular. So I decided to list out what I do love about the XMB exclusively. The olive branch is out, so to speak." (PS3)

Nice article.
Totally agree with your opinion.

The font size wasnt really a problem before the firmware. But I dont mind it being bigger.

Home... who goes there? xD But theoretically home sounds awesome. I might get into it once they released full Ps3 library multiplayer joining. Heard they were going to do that soon.

I loved 360's blades nagivation (b4 NXE), thought of them being just as efficient as XMB.

NXE isnt as great as the blades :( Glad Sony didnt do a rehaul on it. <3 xmb

I like the new font size, although you are right that it was not a problem before.. It does make the XMB feel more alive now.. And i really never liked HOME.. but that buzz quiz game is so fun lol :D

I prefer NXE compared to the Blades, the blades were terrible reminded me of a FunFax, but the Avatars are really uncalled for in the NXE, the rest is great, vast improvement.

I've had no problem with the XMB, I've always found it very good minimalist design, besides, its exactly like on the PSP, so I really don't know why everyone has a go at it on the PS3.

At first I hated the blades, but then I got used to it. Then they released NXE and it is far too "dumbed down" and I actually prefer the blades now. :(

The reason why i prefer blades to NXE is that now i have to scroll through the ads. Blades had the ads implaced n never gave me any issues when navigating.
While in NXE, i have to scroll through unnecessary ads sometimes.
Also, I took a shining to blades <3
