For long-time players and power users the new menu can feel a bit bloated and has too many layers. There is a “quick launch” expandable panel though and I think some tweaks to this quick launch menu would solve the problem for long time players.
Suggested quick launch (full screen link)
An updated quick launch would include the games as it does now, but also quick links for the Plaza browser, Condo browser, start your own condo, and Join matchmaking. It would be down the bottom of the screen (just above the News and Community panel).
As with the current quick launch it wouldn’t be open by default. But if you open it, it’d stay open between sessions unless you close it again.
This would let the rest of the New menu stay as it is.
