Microsoft has given a sneak peek at the future user interface of the Xbox Series X. Not only will the next-gen systems have this sleek new design but all Xbox services and devices are getting an improved and unified Xbox Experience. Check it out live in the video below!
While game consoles’ primary functions above all else are playing games, there’s no question that the design of the user interface itself plays a huge role in how users experience it. It’s why iconic designs like the Cross Media Bar of the PS3 is pretty much synonymous with the console itself.
Xbox users are soon getting a redesigned user experience, and it won’t be just Xbox Series X buyers! The entire gamut of Xbox services, from the Xbox app on PC and mobile to the Xbox One, a singular unified design language will help users feel right at home.
All the ways you experience Xbox should feel inviting and familiar, whether you’re on the couch playing on your console, rallying a group of friends together from your PC, or sneaking in a quick session on your Android device via cloud gaming. The new Xbox look and feel is designed to be faster to use, more approachable and visually appealing. This holiday it will be shared across all Xbox mobile apps, Xbox Game Pass on PC, and of course Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles.
It’s probably more important than ever to be mindful of this aspect with Microsoft leaning heavily towards supporting platforms outside of their home console. PC gamers are enjoying Xbox games the same way mobile gamers are with the brilliant xCloud game streaming option featured in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Still, the short glimpse we got at the Xbox Series X dashboard is exciting in and of itself. Not only does it look very clean and sleek, but the speed of load times, especially booting the console, is just sublime. The fruits of having NVMe SSDs really is showing itself not only inside the games but the entire experience as a whole.
