    u do have a gr8 point there, but the ps3 has some sort of touch-ups in itx XMB that it feels totally different. and it has a bunch of different options, so it doesnt look THAT similar....ok, nvm. but here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XrossMediaBar

    I use my 360 for more than gaming (I know it's kinda lame, but the 360 has become a social tool for my out of state friends), and I don't know, but I REALLY like the NXE dashboard, better than the old one. The new dashboard (when you are connected to the internet) feels a lot different than the other consoles. Maybe it's all the news and shit available without navigating anywhere

    I agree. The XBOX360 Dashboard comes in a very close second though

    Wii can't compare to the other 2, that's for sure.
    Hopefully Nintendo puts a little more effort in it next time, because now, their Menu just got smashed by the other 2.

    Indeed, regardless, its just simple and does the job

    The NXE dashboard wins it for me though in the end, if only there was a better sense of direction when looking for themes, for example, or any other downloadable content, or basically an elaborate search function, then it would have been perfect. It gets tiring waiting for it to load the letters, then all the games, and then scrolling through them all. It was a GREAT improvement from pre-nxe none the less. SO easy to see your friends, what they are playing etc etc.

    Only draw back is no web browser, despite having a PS3, though, i never seem to use it though.

    Even though I have no ps3 (but I do have a wii & 360), I went with the xmb. It's so simple.

    Wii menu. Lacking in features, but it's very easy to navigate, and very pleasant to the eye.

    I like the XMB.

    It doesn't shove too many unnecessary menus in your face, and I found it very intuitive to use.

    Same interface across PSP and PS3 is actually a pro for me. I'd bet that relatively casual gamers who transitioned from one to the other would also appreciate it.

    (Basically think of it as your desktop and laptop running the same O/S. Linux on one and DOS on the other isn't as desirable is it?)

    and once more the japanese had the advantage while the western didn't even know about the existence of it:.

    k back to topic:. don't know about the xbox menu interface but the wii menu is nice, but just to simple/ steril for my taste:. vote for the sony one:.

    I wouldn't say they had the advantange. PSX was a bad idea.

    -The Wii is simply boring as hell. Seeing as how much would be possible (WiiFlow, for example), it's sad. Even different Themes from the Community can't help here. A-W-F-U-L basic design/idea. It's from Nintendo, so I wasn't expecting much anyways...
    -Dashboard is nice. Though, not an eyecandy like XMB.
    -XMB is simply the best. The default background, which changes with the Time and Month, is simply amazing. It's themeable as hell, easy to navigate, and still looks awesome.

    Without any doubt XMB. If the Ps3 would be hackable, I would get one [​IMG]
