There are only a few weeks to go until the launch of Sony and Microsoft's next-gen consoles. Today, the latter released a new video, showing what it will look like when you boot up an Xbox Series X or S on launch day.
The video is fairly similar to Sony's recent user experience video, showing all the different menus and system options available at launch. For the Xbox, some of these updates have already been rolling out to older Xbox consoles, but some are very specific to next-gen consoles.
Quick Resume is a big one, allowing you to hot-swap between several games. Xbox has touted its ability to suspend and hold games for Quick Resume later, and it certainly looks cool here. The UI also notes when you're Quick Resuming a game.
The video also showcases some use of Auto HDR in Subnautica, which adds HDR to games that didn't have it before now. Digital Foundry has done a deep dive on where it does and doesn't work, so it's worth checking out their write-up to get a sense of what the Xbox Series X and S can do for older games.
There are more details on Xbox's integration with the phone app for social sharing, but today's video gives a pretty solid sense of what the Xbox will be doing on day one. With a large focus on backward compatibility options and Game Pass, the new generation of Xbox can certainly make some older games look even prettier. The Xbox Series X and S launch on Nov. 10, 2020.
