Themes and Other UI Customisations Coming to Xbox One

By Gary Cutlack on at

Microsoft's Xbox One will soon update itself with the power to set your own custom background images and themes, with the gaming division's Phil Spencer saying: "...themes and background pics are things we're working on."

Also, the bizarrely lacking ability to take screenshots while playing is on the way too, something Microsoft originally missed out in favour of the more glamorous video capture feature. This, and the arrival of stuff like Plex support and tighter SmartGlass integration, are giving demoralised Xbox One enthusiasts hope that this generation's console war is not already lost.
