The new and “improved” Xbox Home screen hasn’t exactly been a hit with gamers since rolling out yesterday.
The new home UI has been in the works for months; we first reported on it in September last year when it was first released to the Xbox Insider Program’s Alpha Skip Ahead Ring. Yesterday’s launch was limited to a select subset of users.
The original post by user Spiderwolfer complains, “Generally I don’t mind the new Xbox Home Screen layout but I don’t feel like it’s much better either.”
The post continues,
What I really wanted was for our custom groups to be at the top of the screen and this has put them down even further. This is a pretty annoying inconvenience and wish they had thought this through a little more. PLEASE consider changing this.
Spiderwolfer isn’t alone in this sentiment, either. Hundreds have commented on the post, mostly sharing the same criticism of the new Xbox Home screen. A common point of frustration seems to be Microsoft’s perceived indifference to feedback, even in the Xbox Insider Program.
