Sweet! Just when I’m getting ready to redo my menu, the CPX Menu System is released. Its a menu creation system with a gui whose creations work on both the 360 and PC. For more info, check it out: cpxms.codeplex.com/ 

Combined with DPSF, a particle system framework (that realllly needs a gui! heh) theres a lot of good tools coming out this year to make it easier on some of us!
