Early Xbox One Owner Shares Lots of Screenshots Showing UI, “Featured Challenges” and Much More

on November 8, 2013 11:44 PM

Twitter user Moonlightswami got the Xbox One early due to the now confirmed shipping mishap of the console by retailer Target, and he posted several interesting screenshots of the dashboard, showcasing the Ui in quite some depth and some interesting features. He was able to do so thanks to fact that, apparently, the fabled “day one patch” is already up and running on the marketplace, weighing a hefty 500 Mb.

We learn that there are “featured challenges” for various games and we can see things like the friend list, the achievement screen,  the general games and apps screen and a lot more, including the marketplace pages for several games.

Also, according to the “top games right now” screen, we learn that a total of 211 people are playing with Microsoft’s new and shiny piece of hardware. Killer Instinct leads the charge with 112 players, followed by Forza Motorsport 5 with 36, Dead Rising 3 with 28, while other titles share the crumbs.

Killer Instinct currently being the most played game is not so surprising, as at the moment it’s the only title actually available for download (for free) from the marketplace.

I wonder how many of those players authorized testers and developers, and how many are due to Target’s mistake?

In the gallery below you can see the screenshots shared by Moonlightswami. The fourth pic is one of the most interesting, as it shows Call of Duty: Ghosts installing on the bottom right tile, while the dashboard can still be navigated seamlessly. The fifth picture shows the game minimized to the middle of the dashboard.
