Xbox testing new game library badges


Xbox game library badges.

Microsoft is testing a new set of logos that will appear as “badges” over titles in your game library.

These badges are already used to denote titles available via Xbox Game Pass, or that have Xbox Series X/S-specific features.

New badges are being tested for other game conditions, so you can see at a glance what you have available to play. For example, a new logo will appear over games that are disc installs where that disc isnt currently inserted – perhaps its around a friends? Or down the back of the sofa?

Another badge will denote games in your library that you have installed but which arent currently playable, for example if its a title you installed from the Game Pass catalogue that has now left the service.

Xbox engineer Eden Marie has issued screenshots of the new badges, which will pop up first for any Xbox Alpha Insiders with early access to new features.

Earlier this week, another system software tweak in testing was revealed, which speeds up the Xbox Series X/S startup time by five seconds.

In this screen, Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil Resistance are disc installs where the disc isn’t currently inserted, Rain On Your Parade previously left Game Pass, and Steep belongs to a user that isn’t signed in (and this isn’t their Home Xbox). pic.twitter.com/yvxk3WAf7E
