Microsoft released a new Xbox Series X system update for testers. The Alpha Skip 2109.210813-2200 release introduces the long-awaited feature of displaying the console's interface in high resolution.

Until now, menus were rendered in 1080p, which Microsoft representatives explained was due to a desire to save console resources. We don't know if the software has been optimised, or if the devs simply changed their minds on the matter. The resolution at which the interface is rendered also remains a mystery. Microsoft's blog post never once explicitly mentions native 4K.

The previous update enabled us to test the night mode, which is designed to save our eyesight in the evening hours, by reducing blue light emission by slightly changing the color palette of the image displayed. Those who signed up for the Insider program can expect more news in the near future, as Microsoft has a good pace of releasing new patches.

He hasn't yet written a text that he would be 100% satisfied with. He started his adventure with games at the age of 3, when he managed to convince his father to buy a C64 computer. The love for electronic entertainment awakened by Flimbo's Quest blossomed during the first adventures with Heroes of Might & Magic, reaching its peak after purchasing the first PlayStation. As he grew older, he had more encounters with Nintendo portable consoles, and also returned to the PC as an additional gaming platform. He collects games and is a fan of emulation.
