Xbox One X XDK Still in Development, UI Similar to Xbox One

A new UI update was hinted at though.

Posted By | On 16th, Jun. 2017 Under News


Microsoft’s recently revealed Xbox One X is still a ways off, both in release and with some key features. Mike Ybarra, corporate VP at Xbox, talked a bit on Twitter about what remains to be done before the console’s release.

He first confirmed that the Software Development Kit for the Xbox One X is still being worked on. If you love – or hate – the current UI for Xbox One, then you’ll be happy or angry to hear that it’s the same for the Xbox One X. Then again, there could be a new update to change the user interface before the console launches.

And despite the console’s native 4K tagline, players will only be able to stream on Xbox One X in 1080p/720p resolution at 60 frames per second. The reason for this is simple – streaming 4K simply requires too much bandwidth. Capturing 4K videos at 60 FPS is still possible though.

The Xbox one X releases on November 7th worldwide. What are your thoughts on the console’s feature set right now? Let us know in the comments.

    The same old tired UI as the Xbox One??? This thing is getting sadder and sadder with each new bit of information.

      I think it’s more like you’re the one getting sadder and sadder with each new bit of information.

    • crazy_black_man- ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      You think? Sad about what?

      Sad that I don’t have to go out and spend another $499 just to finally get the same graphics potential of the PS4 Pro after suffering through the weak performance of the Xbox One for the past few years? Sad that with each bit of new info, the Xbox One X is starting to sound like it was too good to be true? Sad that the Xbox One UI is still crap, and that that crappy UI is continuing on to the Xbox One X.

      Yes, it does make me feel sad that even after the Xbox One X reveal at E3, I’ve still not been thoroughly convinced into buying an Xbox. That is sad.

      My apologies for being so harsh before. I didn’t realize you were “special.”

      you ever get tired of reaching so deep to find something to complain about? System is a beast plain and simple. Best part is, the future is very bright for xbox. New AAA games are coming in the next 2-3 years in addition to the ones coming sooner that we already know about, and the x1x successor is already being worked on, which will be more powerful than the ps5(Sorry, I know I just ruined your day….but suck it anyway).

      “New AAA games are coming in the next 2-3 years in addition to the ones coming sooner that we already know about…”

      Name just one of them.

      “and the x1x successor is already being worked on”

      The sheer thought of that statement should worry you. Don’t believe everything you read in a tweet. You don’t even have the names of those new AAA games that you were promised yet.

      Oh, and the PS5? I wouldnt worry too much about that yet. Lets just see how well the Xbox One X does this holiday season first, ok son?

      Phil hasn’t stated what they are, but I’m assuming you can read or have someone else read the article for you on this very site…..

      Why would the successor being worked on bother me? This is SOP for console devs. The only difference is Phil told us about it already. He said they would never lose the power adv again.

      I and every Xbox wiener owe you drones a thank you. You clowns woke MS up with all your childish trolling about resolution and no games. We’re going to turn your tears into great experiences

    • Dougdec92

      ho will you ever get great experiences if youve got no games wearing a green cloak?

    • crazy_black_man- ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      LOL. Green cloak?

    • crazy_black_man- ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      “I and every Xbox wiener owe you drones a thank you. You clowns woke MS up with all your childish trolling about resolution and no games.”

      LOL. That means a lot to me. You’re very welcome. But don’t expect it to stop now. We’ll still be here when the Xbox One X refurbs start shipping out to keep the comedy going, so stay tuned.

  • Mr Xrat

    Hah, I remember the dev kit excuse before the Xbone came out.
