    Want to make your 2020 console look a little more 2000s? Just add this new theme that Microsoft has released for Xbox Series X|S consoles. Right now, as part of the May firmware update for the Series X|S, a free theme has been added to make your dashboard have the old-school original Xbox startup blob in the background, in celebration of the system turning 20 years old. To change your theme, you'll need to head to Settings > General > Personalization > My background > Dynamic background. Beyond the fun cosmetic change, the update also improves how the Quick Resume feature works, showing you which of your games is suspended, and giving the function an overall speedup. Why not match your new theme by playing an original Xbox game through backwards compatibility?

    Oh... Wow... A background... Meanwhile, I'm running UIX on my OG Xbox and its phenomenal.

    It's a nice homage... But.. Are there the background noises and sounds? That'd really make it great.

    I recommended the same thing a while back. They don't want to because they said it was better to facilitate discussion of differing opinions ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Cool, sony had done something like that a while ago


    Now all that remains is for Nintendo to do the same, but apparently the Switch will not have themes anytime soon.

    Bring back the 360 Blades UI you cowards! I still wouldn't buy a Series X/S, but do it anyway.
