Boot screen change for Xbox One

Written by David Stellmack

New green logo screen with status dots

Microsoft is changing the boot screen on the Xbox One. Sources indicate that the change to the boot screen is part of the August update that has started to already roll out to preview users.

The new boot screen on for the Xbox One features a white Xbox One logo on a matching green background. Most notable are the three “status dots” that that light up one at a time from left to right and the console goes through the boot process. We suspect that the intention here is to indicate to users that the console is booting and has not hung.

It is unknown if there is any real actual reason that Microsoft elected to change the boot screen or if this was just something to sort of dress up the console up with something a little more snazzy during the booting process. We suspect that it could be that the move to the new loading screen could or might indicate that the console is taking longer to boot up? So far there is no indication that there is any real difference in the boot time of the console.
