Xbox One screensaver

Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra recently previewed a few of the Xbox One’s forthcoming features. While gamers expected the company to announce many of these features,  there was a surprise that slipped out: screensavers!

Screensavers are heading to the Xbox One

The user IdleSloth discovered this new feature and posted it on Twitter as Ybarra went through some brand new settings coming to the Xbox One. As you can see in the screenshot below, the option to enable a screensaver on the console is available on the Preferences page.

We don’t’ have any more details on the whole thing or how customizable the screenshots will be when the feature reaches the Xbox One, but what we do know for sure is that users are excited about it all!

The original Xbox One is not available anymore

The upcoming Xbox One X turned out to be the fastest selling Xbox pre-order ever, but at the same time, there’s also some bad news: Microsoft decided to stop selling the original Xbox One. Apart from the happy owners of the console, the only available options for an Xbox will include the Xbox One X and the Xbox One S.

Even if this seems a horrible news, it’s no big deal as the Xbox One S has always been a better option according to most reviews. It is 40% smaller, supports vertical orientation using a stand, and its power supply is integrated into the console instead of being a separate brick that you had to hide behind your TV.
