Microsoft has been constantly making improvements to the Xbox One dashboard and now the company has promised that Xbox One X dashboard will be optimized to its hardware and will prioritize performance. According to Mike Ybarra, the dashboard will be streamlined as it will have to work across all Xbox consoles.
Speaking with VG247, vice president of Xbox and Windows, Mike Ybarra, said that the console offers much more powerful hardware and RAM and he has already discussed with Phil Spencer about the general improvements to the Xbox One X dashboard.
I feel great about where we’ve come today, but we designed this UI to be across the whole family and to only use a static amount of system resources so that even on S and the original Xbox One it runs absolutely great.
While Ybarra is talking about streamlining the dashboard across all Xbox platforms but, he added that there is still time before Microsoft settles on a final design and it is being designed with user feedback in mind.
In related news, Microsoft has officially confirmed that Xbox One has been discontinued. The manufacturing of Xbox One discontinued as soon as Xbox One S was introduced in the console market as a hardware refresh. “As is typical for the console industry, we stopped manufacturing the original Xbox One when we introduced Xbox One S”.
Also, Microsoft is very confident that gamers will recognize the value of Xbox One X. According to Aaron Greenberg, when Xbox One X comes to the market, players will see what 4K looks like and will be very “impressed” by it and added that lots of side by side comparisons will pop up on the internet which will also help in gamers recognizing the Xbox One X value.
Xbox One X will be available on November 7, 2017, in the US and will be priced at $499.
