Microsoft’s Teases Xbox Series X Boot Sequence
The boot screen appears in a teaser trailer for this Thursday’s next-gen gameplay-focused episode of Inside Xbox.
Approximately ten-seconds-long, the sequence sees a revamped Xbox logo emerge from the darkness backed by the mellifluous tones of a gently sweeping wave of synths.
Turning on the closed captions on the YouTube video reveals the audio as ‘New Xbox Sound.’ It speaks for itself.
Further backing up that we are indeed looking at the Xbox Series boot screen is a tweet authored by Xbox sharing the teaser. As not so subtle hints go, this one couldn’t be more obvious. It reads:

The Internet Reacts
Unsurprisingly, everyone and their uncle came out to share their hot take on the Series X boot screen, with particular emphasis on the sound.
YouTube comments appear to agree with the verdict that this is indeed the Xbox Series X start-up screen.
