The next overhaul of the Xbox One’s user interface is currently available for members of the Xbox One Preview Program and is currently receiving mixed feedback from the community at large. One aspect of this upcoming update for Xbox One that has seen wide positive appeal from Xbox One gamers however, is the new sorting options available for your game library.

With six options now available in the system’s My Games and Apps section users will now be able to sort games by: All, Xbox One games, Xbox 360 and Xbox games, Xbox One X enhanced games, 4K games and HDR games.

As of right now, Xbox One currently already allows you to filter through Xbox One and Xbox 360 games, but the addition of further options to sort by native 4K and One X enhanced games is definitely a plus for those looking to pick up Microsoft’s newer console. Anyone with the recent Xbox One S console will also see use in the ability to see all games with HDR capabilities as well, depending on whether they have a HDR ready display or not.

With the broadness of options becoming available with this upcoming update, there will be a massive amount of crossover between categories upon the release of the Xbox One X. Games with all three of these new labels will soon be viewed in five different categories which may annoy games who are still waiting for the ability to create their own categories to sort by.

While the new sections are certainly welcome for those with greatly expanding libraries, it still isn’t as great as, say, the PSVita/PS4 folder system which allows you to sort games however you want them. Hopefully sometime in the future, Xbox gamers will be able to sort their games with a higher amount of customization to sort by their favorite genres or even developers, but these new options are definitely welcome.
