Microsoft aims to roll out Windows 10 preview on Xbox One in September

Microsoft has spent much of the day sharing some of its gaming plans at the Gamescom industry event in Cologne, Germany. Among its many announcements today, the company revealed more about its plans to bring Windows 10 to the Xbox One.

During its Xbox keynote presentation, Microsoft said that its new user experience for the Xbox One, "powered by Windows 10", will roll out in November. The company's Mike Ybarra (Partner Director of Program Management, Xbox and Windows Platform) also showed off the latest design of the Xbox One's new Home screen.

Inevitably, those on the Xbox Preview program will already be itching with anticipation, wondering when Windows 10 will be available to try out on their consoles. Ybarra said today that he's aiming for the first preview of the new user experience to be ready to roll out in September.

Given that the new UX is still in development, it will probably be a while longer before Microsoft announces a firm availability date for the preview - but it's good to know that it's on the way, and just a few weeks away from being released.
