In related news, Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Mike Ybarra, has confirmed that Xbox One dashboard will not receive any major updates but, assured that there will be some minor adjustments.
The reason behind might be due to the fact that Microsoft generally doesn’t make any major changes in these months till Holiday season as a lot of new players join Xbox community and the changes can cause confusion among the newcomers.
Also, Microsoft has promised that dashboard will be streamlined for performance across all Xbox devices. According to Mike, Xbox One X 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.
As for the upcoming Xbox One X, Microsoft is very confident that gamers will recognize the value of the console. 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.
