With the launch of the Xbox Series X and S just about two weeks away – yesterday Xbox released what they called an “Official Next-Gen Walkthrough – Full Demo”. Basically, it was a video highlighting the new Micosoft UI as well as few of the big, much-hyped, upcoming features like Quick Resume in action.
The video seems to be shot in real-time and you do notice how quickly everything responds. It’s really all about “speed, speed speed” as we’re constantly reminded by the presenters. I’ve got to admit everything looks very clean and inviting and the more I see of it the more I’m impressed with the package Microsoft is offering. It’s a shortish video (just under 15 minutes) and so probably worth you’re time, especially if you’re still undecided. And even if you don’t want to sit through the whole thing Xbox even provided a handy breakdown of each feature discussed – so have a look below and see if anything perks your interest.
