This is something that should have been in place back when the Marketplace was launched last year, but now when you check out the Gamerpics or [http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/marketplace/themes.htm]Themes[/url] on the XBox.com site they actually show you pictures of each screen/pic that you will be buying. 

I'm not sure if this was launched at the same time as their Fall Update a couple weeks ago or what, but it's about damn time!  How could they expect people to spend money on visual enhancements when they couldn't even preview them? 

EDIT: Hmm, it seems as if there are still some of them that aren't shown on there even though you can buy it when online on the 360 (Just Cause is one that I noticed).

This has actually been up on their web site for as long as I can remember (well, about as near as long as the 360 has been out, anyway).  Definitely not something that coincided with the Fall update.

I know they used to have some of the gamerpics and stuff up there, but I don't remember being able to see all of the page details of the themes before.  Maybe it slipped my mind or I just never checked them out...who knows.
