The new background simply called ‘The Original’ brings back the classic green orb that was featured on the OG Xbox’s dashboard screen, with the green wireframe pattern surrounding this.
To be able to access ‘The Original’ background players must ensure their Xbox Series X or Series S has got the latest firmware update. The option to change the background will appear in the console’s Settings app under personalisation tile.
The background will be found under the Dynamic backgrounds section towards the very end of the list. In addition to Microsoft adding this background to these consoles, Xbox’s May update has also made the Quick Resume feature even better. The upgraded feature will allow faster loading times as well as having the ability to see which games you have suspended at any moment.
