The Vice President mentioned this in a post, not only to promote the upcoming release of Hellblade 2, but also to provide users with a Series S and X background featuring the protagonist’s face. As for the PlayStation 5, it added this feature only one month ago.

While the PS3 and PS4 have had this almost since the console launch, fans are eager to see what the final result of this addition will be.

The Xbox Dynamic Themes Are Closer Than Ever

Greenberg was very clear with his reply asking for this feature; he said “very soon” in all caps, emphasizing that the Series S and X will add this possibility in no time. The themes for these platforms are very amazing; the color schemes are well displayed, taking advantage of every space and the whole background with amazing looks, which makes the UI of the hardware astonishing.

The upcoming launch of Hellblade 2 is making Microsoft really promote this title as one of the most anticipated titles of the year. Some rumors suggest that Ninja Theory will also launch this game on PS5 at some point. This game, like every exclusive title on the platform, will be available on Game Pass on Day 1. Even after several losses, Microsoft keeps betting on this strategy for the more popular releases.

Microsoft is having trouble understanding their own audience, with many weird and simply bad decisions like closing down four studios out of nowhere, one of them being Tango Gameworks, that have just released the popular and successful Hi-Fi Rush. There are also rumors about the company increasing the price of the Game Pass and considering putting more exclusive titles on PS5, but there has been no confirmation.
