That Big 'Optimized' Logo On Xbox Series X Boxes Is Reportedly Being Removed

The first official Xbox Series X cover art designs were unveiled a few weeks ago, and while they generally received a good reception, there was a lot of feedback that the 'optimized for Xbox Series X' logo was too big.

Now, according to a couple of reports, it looks like Microsoft has decided to remove it.

This originated from Niko Partners Senior Analyst Daniel Ahmad, who posted a picture of the new design (just a mock-up as he "can't share real unreleased marketing assets"):

Senior Editor at The Verge Tom Warren also quoted this soon after, and definitively stated that "Microsoft is removing the giant Xbox Series X enhanced logo from the front of Xbox game boxes."

However, Warren says that he believes it will now be moved to the back of the box instead, while Ahmad suggests that there will be more subtle mention of it on the back, and it won't be this exact logo.

Again, these are just reports for now, but we'll let you know if we hear anything official from Microsoft.
