The New Xbox One Experience is almost here – and we’ve got an exciting video of the improved Xbox One Store to share with you! As you’ll see in the video clip above, I recently sat down with Partner Group Program Manager for Xbox One, Richard Irving to talk about a few of the changes and updates we’ve got in store for… well, the Store!
There’s a ton to discover in the New Xbox One Experience, and all of the games you already own will be ready and waiting for you. But when you’re ready for more, quickly find the games and content you want in the optimized Store. As you land on the Store from Home, you’ll notice it expands into four easy to explore areas – Games, Apps, Movies & TV, and Music. A new vertical gallery view inside the Store brings you more listings at a glance. You can browse through categories like Featured, New Releases, Most Played, Top Rated, Coming Soon, and Recommendations to help you find new things to play, interact with, watch, or listen to.
You’ll also notice that the Store has gotten a big quality-of-life upgrade: It’s much faster and easier to navigate, and requires fewer clicks to get to the stuff you care about. The new Store menu for each section is streamlined, allowing you to get to add-on content quickly, plus redeem any codes you may have.
On each game’s page within the Store, we’ve reorganized everything to focus on the information that our fans want when making their purchasing decisions. All of the content for all of the games in the Store is front-and-center, from add-on content to videos and bundle items. Browse some more and you’ll be able to see active Twitch broadcasts for a game, popular screenshots and videos that players have created, and – of course – access each title’s Game Hub, so that you can check out the latest updates on your favorite games directly from the game developers, and see which of your friends play the game. You can also compare Gamerscore, Achievements, and other game stats with your friends.
Like the rest of the New Xbox One Experience, the revamped Store is coming on Nov. 12. Check out the video above for the full rundown, and stay tuned – we’ve got a lot more to share with you between now and launch!
