I also wanted to point out that the new store pages for Xbox are horrible compared to what they were. You can’t even watch a trailer or video full screen now? Wtf!?

We know since March that the Series X uses 13.5GB for games and 2.5GB for the OS. If it turns out that a 1080p dashboard means more RAM for games then I'll take that a million times over a 4K dashboard that leaves less RAM for games.
Let's make a command line console!

That being said, I don't care for the picture in picture feature, nor 90% of what a console os does, I'd be very happy with a menu over a black background.

For the people that say it doesn't matter at all......would you care if MS made the UI 720p, but gave developers another 512 MBs of RAM? Like why stop at 1080?

Wow. That’s a great question. Didn’t they start current gen at 720p graphics anyway?

i mean its a pretty simple answer, its the best middle ground

majority have 1080p TVs still, 1080p UI is passable on 4k TV (where as 720p would be pushing it). its not rocket science

this is from someone who thinks its pathetic that we arent getting a 4K UI with next gen

I would even go as far and say 480p if it frees up resources for games.

the console UI's graphical fidelity is the by far least important thing about a console.
