So tomorrow there's going to be this major Live update. It looks similar to what the Wii already has yet I'm not sure. Apparently you can go through Live as if it were a game itself, or something like that. Does anyone know anything about it other than what's already given to us (which, from what I know, is very little)?

I really don't care about the update. It's a whoopie-fuckin-doo to me, and yes, Microsoft was probably eyeing Nintendo's Mii's with their "avatars". As long they don't screw up the interface, I will accept, but still; what was wrong with the dashboard? I liked it the way it was.

It was a cluttered and disorganised mess. From Microsoft, how about that, eh? And apparently large numbers of 360 owners didn't even know about many of the features on it. It was O.K. in the early days, but it got crapper with each update. I couldn't give a fuck about the Mii ripoffs, I'm just hoping for better functionality. Going through multiple menus to access basic functions = fail.

I like it. The Avatars are a big ripoff, but does anyone REALLY give a crap? It's still a neat feature and everything else is pretty slick, though it takes some serious getting used to when you're used to the old dash.

I've already gotten used to it. It's a shame that you don't REALLY get to play through Live as if it were a game all on its own, but they're still great. I like that you can use them in the Live arcade. But still, a little more freedom would've been nice. I was looking forward to a better rip-off of Animal Crossing.

I don't mind it. I haven't cruised through it much. Time is valuable and I really wanted to get some FO3 time in, so I did the minimal. Seems like it would be good. Thinking about getting a Wii. Maybe, this will serve as practice.

It's alright, I don't mind it but it functions well and much faster than the old interface. My Mii, er "Avatar", actually does look kinda like me, I found that funny. I don't really join parties, so I have no idea how that actually works.

I couldn't find anything that looked too asian so mine doesn't look exactly like me, but it gives you an idea. I've never used parties either.
