A new site has just popped up allowing you to view all Xbox 360 Themes since the option isn't available on the marketplace.

Official Link HERE (http://mattbrett.com/archives/2007/01/introducing-dashboard-themes/)


I'm extremely happy to announce the "top secret Xbox related site" I've been working on for the past few months is up and running! Dashboard Themes (http://dashboardthemes.com/) is the first and only site that allows you to preview Xbox 360 dashboard themes as they appear within the dashboard before dropping any coin on them. The current state of the Xbox Live Marketplace doesn't give you an option to preview content before you pay and Microsoft's online components for Marketplace content don't do much better. I came up with an idea to fill this gaping whole, and along with my good friend Andrew McTeer, made it happen.

Dashboard themes can be found HERE (http://dashboardthemes.com/)at dashboardthemes.com (http://dashboardthemes.com/)

Side note: This is NOT the first site to show dashboard themes. Xbox.com has had the feature for a long time now, they're just slow to add the themes.

Find Xbox.com's version HERE (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/marketplace/themes.htm).

This is great. Now when you want to by a theme, you don't just have to hope that it will be something you like.

it's cool and everything... but doesn't anyone ever go to xbox.com?

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/marketplace/themes.htm

when you are signed in and looking at pics and themes, it shows what they look like... i like looking there, cuz you can see the images without all of the stuff over the top. BUT i like this site you found too cuz it breaks down by most popular and stuff like that...

i am not trying to knock what you found, cuz i think it's great...but i thought i would show another site option, in case one or the other does not have a specific set or something... :)

I would go there... if they showed half of them. They are missing a lot of the themes that are available, especially the newer ones. I used to check xbox.com all the time to see what was available, but they just don't seem to ever update it much any more.
