    The channels aren't terrible. They're fairly straightforward and get you where you want to go. They just aren't all that great to have to scroll through to get to what you want.

    I do like more straightforward menus.

    I liked the channels. It allowed me to meet my obsessive compulsive alphabetisation of my games and apps.

    More like a dsi home screen to me, with 3D animations at top screen.

    That was my initial thought too. Not a whole lot of innovation in the menu system.

    Wow that looks amazing, but i liked their old 3DS menu layout of having 2 x 4 rows.
    But this looks great.

    I like it... In 3D? That'l be pretty cool, hopefully not too much on the eyes. Thanks nintendo for the 3d slide [​IMG]

    *Edit*
    I'm disappointed...
    I was hoping for this:

    Channels is one of the things that make Nintendo special.

    I like channels, but not the one's like DSI, when you have to scroll left and right. It takes too long, and makes the menu boring

    Well it looks as if most the important stuff is at the front page and the top bar.
    Just hopefully the scroll speed is very fast though.
    It was terror getting from start to finish on the DSi...
    EDIT: Groovy has a good point.

    1. The menu is changeable as groovy suggested
    2. Menu 'A' (The old picture) is just a BETA Menu.
    3. Menu 'B' (From the Video) is also a BETA but this close to the release, having it at BETA would be stupid...
    BTW i just say menu 'A' and 'B' to make it easier.
