Old Themes not looking so hot on NXE

By now you are all very obviously aware that the NXE dashboard update has been released and is impressing a lot of 360 owners the world over.

Lazygamer reported earlier today that there are some issues in the form of an error coming up when you try and view certain pages. It also now seems as though that isn’t the only problem. Before the release of NXE, Microsoft promised that the old themes from the original dashboard (OXE?) would work seamlessly and also look great, but the truth is that they just don’t.

Although I found an article about this on OXM’s website, it was one of the first things that I realised when I booted up into the new dashboard. Not only are the background images not suited to the new layout that has windows running through the centre of the screen, but the images seem to also be stretched wider and have a definite loss in quality as a result (see header image).

Although I don’t feel as though it is a major issue, I am not the type of gamer that spends a lot of Microsoft Points on themes and gamer pictures, so I can understand if those who do are not very impressed with the translation over to the NXE.

I’m sure that more little issues are going to be popping up here and there, there are rumours flying around that the NXE is causing RROD’s, but until we are sure that it is not just one or two random cases, we won’t be saying anything about it just yet.
