The Xbox One may be receiving a major UI overhaul “soon,” as evidenced by a tweet by Xbox’s Program Director, Mike Ybarra. The My Apps and My Games sections of the Xbox One’s UI have long been subject to criticism by owners of the console. My Apps and My Games handle long lists of titles in such a way that the scroll bar gets longer as the number of titles installed increases. Large collections of games, especially those including a healthy library of XBLA titles, have always been a chore to navigate through on the Xbox One.

Many users have expressed criticism of this clunky UI element, but not much has changed while other parts of the interface have received substantial makeovers. Members of the Xbox One community have even gone to the extent of creating mockups to show Microsoft how My Apps and My Games could be tweaked to be more user-friendly.

Surprisingly, Xbox’s Program Head tweeted “Soon,” in reply to one such UI mockup. While this is clearly not an announcement, it’s likely that Microsoft has been listening to user feedback. A UI update may well be on the cards. We’ll keep you posted.

    A one word tweet turned into a positive Xbox One article? Are we now that desperate to keep hope alive for the Xbox One community?

      Silly pony. You wish somy would listen. If they did may e you would have decent BC feature instead of what you’re getting.

    • Doggystyle

      Lets see… VR of the future, or BC with a few very select, crappy Xbox One games with really poor framerates, and constant freezing, that people played to death already last gen…hmmmm…looks like you lose again. LOL. Try again soon Michael. You’re the joke that keeps on giving.

      why do you seem so upset?

    • Doggystyle

      LOL. You desperate clowns crack me up. Keep hope alive. Keep hope alive. There will always be another vague tweet coming to string you along again tomorrow.

    • sgt_hammertime

      I think you’re the clown here. I have no worries of being strong along because the OS has been consistently updated every month and when the company said a feature or UI change is coming soon then 95% of the time from my perspective those changes show up real fast.

    • Doggystyle

      Blah, blah, blah…stay on the defensive young man.

    Hopefully because it’s horrible currently.

    There’s no reason as to why it is as slow and clunky as it is right now compare it to the 360 or ps4 and both Microsoft’s own last gen machine and Sony’s machine run circles around the xb1.

      Cool story tell me more about your cam girl sites bro

    Actually the best ui Microsoft designed was the original blade interface for the 360.

    My guess is they canned it because they could fit more adverts in the live tile environment
