Microsoft thinks it needs to simplify the Xbox Live interface


Microsoft believes it can, and ought to, make changes to the Xbox Live interface. While the Marketplace and general Live interface was designed, maybe, for a couple hundred items, there’s now more than 17,000. Too confusing, too cluttered for the average consumer.

Basically, Microsoft is looking to re-organize the way XBL is laid out. How that happens, when that happens—in time for the expected Fall update?—remains to be seen.

And yes, to a point I’d agree with Microsoft. The constant scrolling, going from page to page, doesn’t exactly make looking for a new (free) picture set or whatever all that engaging.
