  • RetroArch 1.8.5 is out replacing the XMB UI with Ozone plus lots of bug fixing

    RetroArch is a wonderful and expansive front-end for tons of emulators and other gaming engines, it's just had a fresh release that entirely replaces the user interface.

    XMB was the name of what they were using before, which was an interface thoroughly inspired by Sony's inteface for the PlayStation where you slide along and pick various options. While it looked pretty, their XMB interface wasn't very accessible and relied on people really knowing what to look for.
