First Look At Xbox Series X Boot Up And UI

We finally get our first look at what the dashboard and UI looks like for the Xbox Series X!

We finally got a chance to experience the UI for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S and like Microsoft said, it looks a lot like the Xbox One's current UI. If you're already in the Xbox ecosystem, the UI for Series X/S should look very familiar to you.

In the video above, Michael Higham shows off the Xbox Series X's speed--booting the console up, navigating through the UI, and jumping into a game and playing around when he should be working (jk, Michael, we love you and appreciate you handling all these Xbox previews).

All in all, the whole process is pretty seamless and there's very little waiting time involved. So when the Xbox Series X and Series S are here and we all have the chance to check them out, we shouldn't have to wait too long between turning the console on and jumping into a game.

Speaking of, quite a few games will be available to play on Xbox Series X/S at launch. As Microsoft's next-gen consoles support backwards compatibility, you'll have access to select titles in your back catalog of Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Xbox games. Plus, there's all the titles available on Xbox Game Pass. If you're looking for something new, we've rounded up all of the games launching alongside or close to the Xbox Series X/S release date of November 10.

Looking good. Very similar to Xbox One, which I like.

No need to reinvent the wheel for me. As long as I can pin things to the Home screen, I'm good. The less time spent looking at the UI the better.

Did you not show the Devices and connections menu because the Kinect is still showing up there, right? I'm still kinda hoping they didn't remove the Kinect functionality from the OS itself, they could just leave it an and call it a day.

I can't tell if it's an Xbox UI without all the ads splattered in my face on home screen.

@jyml8582: It has one sponsored game ad and one suggested Gamepass game. The rest are games the person has already played on his Gamepass sub. When people are hell bent on looking for something to complain about, they usually find it, no matter how small.
