Xbox Series X: Microsoft reveals much needed Game Library overhaul


The launch of the Xbox Series X/S is right around the corner on November 10th.

Due to Microsoft going in the direction of accessibility, many new titles will be released side by side with the Xbox One.

They will also be optimizing older titles to make them look and play better on the new system.

These titles will be labelled as "Optimized for Xbox Series X|S".

Dashboard Update

Major Nelson revealed on Twitter what the new Xbox Series X/S Dashboard will look like, including showing the ability to filter by Optimized games.

NEW YET FAMILIAR: The new dashboard looks similar to the Xbox One dashboard, just with minor changes/

On the new Dashboard players will see numerous logos overlaid on the game thumbnails.

The X|S logo indicates the game is Optimized for Xbox Series X|S.

These are games that are either playable on both Xbox One and Series X|S, as well as future titles that are only available on the Series X|S.

There is also a Game Pass logo which indicates games that you can play with your Game Pass subscription.
