What do you get when you combine the Xbox One gaming console with Windows 10? What Microsoft calls the New Xbox One Experience, or NXOE. And it’s beginning to roll out to testers right now.
Microsoft representatives were leery about reporters publishing previews of the experience, simply because of bugs and performance issues associated with early code. But I was actually surprised that it seems to work pretty well—it’s a little slower than usual, and my login information to Netflix vanished in the update. Otherwise, however, I haven’t noticed any major bugs.
Unfortunately, the update dropped as I was covering the unveiling of Microsoft’s other devices in New York, so I’ve spent just a few hours with it. But here’s a quick visual tour of what you can expect as the NXOE eventually opens up to a wider group of people.
