Redesigned Xbox Store Revealed in Leaked Screenshots

Original Story: Late last week, we shared the news that a mysterious "Mercury" app had appeared on some Xbox One owners' consoles, with Windows Central suggesting it was the codename of a large Xbox Store update. But, Thurrott has a good track record with Xbox leaks; recently, it more or less nailed the port design of the Xbox Series X. For one, the design is significantly different from that of the current store, with the navigation bar moved to the side. It's not clear when we can expect Microsoft to introduce this new look for the Xbox Store, however. There's less of the grey and much more colour, with a blur to the images in the background and more rounded corners. Microsoft has also made a decision to use its open-source, cross platform Fluent Design System for creating the new interface. Mercury still seems to have all of the usual functionality, with trailers, wish lists, and reviews, but displays these in a neater fashion. If you combine this with the $1 Game Pass Ultimate promo, you can likely save more than if you were to buy a year's worth of codes from this Amazon deal.

Whether you're a fan of PS4 or Xbox, there are a lot of great chances to save right now.
