With a recent preview update, the entertainment tab on the Xbox One dashboard has been replaced with a tab for Game Pass. Naturally, Xbox wants to play up Game Pass. It’s their Netflix system for gaming, and (in all honesty) it’s a great value for what it offers.
But… what about entertainment?
If you were to pick up a shiny new Xbox One, and all of the tabs you see across the top have nothing to do with entertainment (to be clear we’re talking about Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, etc…), how would you know that entertainment is a thing you could do with an Xbox One?
I, personally, don’t see why entertainment can’t still have a tab on the dashboard, but that could possibly create a slippery slope — then you’ll want a clubs tab, accessories tab, etc.
So, let’s talk: How much of a focus, on the Xbox dashboard, should entertainment have? It worries me that something that truly adds value to this console is getting this de-emphasized… Am I crazy?
