Microsoft is gearing up to showcase a brand new Xbox store for consoles in the near future, dubbed codename “Mercury.” @WinCommunity over on Twitter managed to get a look at the new Xbox Store app first, showcasing the awesome fluent design and refreshed iconography to match apps like those found on PC and Project xCloud.
Now, we’ve been able to go hands-on with the app for ourselves, getting a deeper idea of where Microsoft is planning to take Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles with their designs in the future.
Every major Xbox Store feature we could think of remains present, including reviews, filters, trailers, screenshots, general database information, and more. It even extends to Microsoft’s Movies & TV store, as well as the app store specifically for Xbox. Ironically, this is now a better app store than the Windows 10 PC Microsoft Store itself, which is in dire, desperately need of its own overhaul.
What do you think of the new design? Would you like to see this sort of design overhaul hit the Microsoft Store on PC? Let us know in the comments.
