It’s the Xbox Metro interface!
Now, I can’t say I am surprised. Sony accepts when they are wrong by offering the most sincere form of flattery. They congratulated Nintendo on their innovation by replacing the SNES-with-wings PS1 controller with the-same-thing-but-with-two-sticks-strapped-under-it Dual Analog. They congratulated Microsoft on their innovation by putting a huge Home button in the center of their PS3 controller. They congratulated Nintendo (again) by creating their own Wii remote with a light-up ping-pong ball on top. And of course, they are congratulating Microsoft (again) with their own version of the Metro Dashboard.
Well, to be fair to Sony…one is white while the other is black.
So congratulations to all you Playstation gamers just now getting a readable store interface; that should ease the sting of your PS3 purchase.
After all, free internet usage and free multiplayer? You get what you pay for.

He started gaming with the original black brick, and considers anything that isn’t M-rated and/or a sim racer to be games for children. Although Microsoft has since abandoned him as a target audience with the Xbox 360 and Kinect, he still feels satisfied playing his Halo sequels and the various multiplats that he secretly would rather get anywhere else.
