New Dashboard Images for Xbox 360

UPDATE: Video walkthrough of new dashboard.

As many of you heard Microsoft has a dashboard update planned for the 360 to add the avatars and help reduce some clutter. You can see the re-invention of the dashboard below. The main question everyone had been asking was what would happen to the blade system. A quote from Marc Whitten on Major Nelson's blog cause a bit more confusion;
"For everyone who loves the blades interface, it’s not going away; they are now built directly in to the new Xbox guide. Every feature and option is available right from the guide. You can even access your full games library at all times. No matter where you are (in dash or in game), immediately call up your games played list and directly launch a game. "

This made it seem like the blade system would remain, but few could figure out how, until now. An image of what will happen when you press the guide button after the fall update has been uncovered via Kotaku, and as you can see it is a condensed version of the now implemented blade system. Hopefully we get a demo video soon.
