    Metro design is almost only text based in many cases. Photoshop is more than enough to be able to do nice metro design.

    Check out these apps for some great metro design reference:

    -Metrotube
    -Bankhubben
    -Handelsbanken
    -IMDb
    -WPCentral

    EDIT: It's worth noting that outside of mocking up your designs and making the app tile and splash screen, there's very little requirement for photoshop as 90%+ of a metro app interface is text based and as such is set up in the templates that are part of the SDK.
