Ive always favoured the xbox and last year decided on the 360 for my new plasma. I thought the 360 blade style dashboard was great although not quite as good as xbmc for xbox 1 but, last week my father in law got a free PS3 with a tv he bought and asked me to set it up for him (this was my first look at a PS3) What I found was the PS3 dash looks a lot more polished than the 360s When viewing photographs you can do a lot more with it and in general looks a lot better. When listening to mp3s etc , the visualizations are far superior. MS only supply some bouncing lines etc in time with the music. On the PS3 I got some views from outer space which looked really good. (didnt have time to explore more types) The PS3 also allows you to copy videos onto its hard drive (this doesnt really bother me as I stream everything from my server) Surely microsoft could spruce up the look of Pictures, Music and Video and the navigation within with a future dash update. anyone happy with the current dash for pictures, music and video I realize the 360 is primarily a games console with this as an extra!
