When shopping, your Xbox game case can be easily identified from its green color. This is the design Microsoft has used since the first Xbox console was launched in 2001. At this time, almost every Xbox game released is generational and runs on the old Xbox One or the new Xbox Series X or S. Over time, Xbox One will eventually be phased out by most developers and publishers.
Through a subtle box art redesign, Microsoft makes it easy for games to see compatible systems. The currently displayed box has the name “Xbox” in the front and center, followed by a small tag listing the systems. In the new box, the name “Xbox” is gone and the system now appears first in the new white box.

Microsoft also makes it easy to see which editions you have. Strangely large racing stripes are eye-catching, letting you know if you’re getting a standard edition, premium, or other deluxe version that Microsoft or publishers dream of.
The new box art design is also calling for Microsoft’s smart delivery system, but it’s also a bit confusing about the doubling of the Series X as a listed platform and the second logo optimized for the Series X. There’s no second logo, but it seems that all games need to be tuned for Series X as older hardware is phased out over time.
Box art changes will be realized as quickly as the Xbox Series X life cycle, just as Sony changed the PlayStation 1 package from its own (and great). Long box To standardized CD format.
