Immediately after the Xbox Series X was announced, fans remarked that its refrigerator-like design makes it an excellent canvas for custom editions. Microsoft has yet to announce any special-edition Xbox Series X designs, but one fan has put together a very good-looking one for Halo Infinite. It’s sharp and rugged, yet it isn’t gaudy, and it looks good enough to be an official design if Microsoft launches a limited-edition console when the game releases.
Noted designer Xbox Pope created the lovely-looking mock-up that you can see below. It features the Halo franchise’s signature green color scheme and a distressed “117” in reference to Master Chief’s name. Xbox Pope also created a mock-up for an Xbox controller that matches up with the console design. Check it out below, but remember again that this is not an official design.

Given that Halo is one of Microsoft’s crown jewel franchises, and that Infinite is one of Microsoft’s marquee launch titles for Xbox Series X, it stands to reason that the company may actually create a special-edition console for the game. That’s just speculation for now, though.
New Xbox One Update Should Make UI Navigation A Little Easier
Microsoft has rolled out a new update for Xbox One. The May 2020 update is aimed at improving the overall UI experience, specifically in regards to simplifying the Guide and making it easier to navigate.
“The new Guide is designed to be cleaner and easier to read,” Xbox Experience principal program manager lead Jonathan Hildebrandt wrote in a blog post. “We’ve reduced the total number of tabs by combining related experiences and introduced a new default, left-to-right tab order, making it simpler to move around. App and system notifications are now found with the rest of your Alerts, right when you open the Guide.”
Here’s a quick rundown of all the changes:
Animal Crossing: New Horizons: 9 Quality-Of-Life Features We Want
Animal Crossing: New Horizons has captured the hearts of scores of players since it first launched back in March, and it’s become something of a phenomenon. If you’re like us, you’re probably still playing almost every day (perhaps even for multiple hours), checking your turnip prices, fine-tuning your town layout, breeding flowers, and more Animal Crossing goodness.
But even if you love the game like we do, you probably have a few nitpicks by now. If you’ve crafted tons of fish bait or gotten really into terraforming, there might be a few features you’d like to see–just those little quality-of-life updates that tweak the minor issues that crop up when you’ve played a game for 200 or more hours. And because New Horizons is already getting ongoing support and new content updates, we can really dare to dream.
We put our heads together to come up with nine quality-of-life updates we’d love to see come to New Horizons. Let us know in the comments what other features you want to see come to the adorable life/gardening/friendship sim! And Nintendo, if you’re reading: We say all this with love.

Valorant left beta on Thursday, becoming unavailable to players until the free-to-play shooter fully launches on June 2. Riot plans to reset player accounts and patch in fixes and new content during the down period. The studio will also be adding new servers–located in Atlanta, Dallas, London, Madrid, and Warsaw–to help lower Valorant’s latency so that the player experience is as smooth as possible.
