So you can be out the door paying just $329 and nothing more.

The Xbox One Home screen can now be completely customised, enabling you to add favourite games, friends, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass links in new "call blocks". Completing one gameplay and then continuing the next adventure on your mobile is truly a great addition to it. The Multiplayer tab of the Guide will also house the game invites that players receive, and a new Tournaments section in the tab collects all the tournaments that players have joined.

When you bring up Guide while in an active party or broadcast, Guide will automatically open the party or broadcast section by default for faster access to controls.

The updated Home Screen now will show you things like friend activities, Looking For Group messages, leaderboards, and more.

You can copy your games to an external disk, ready to load onto your Xbox One X.

Meanwhile, new deals are up for Xbox One users this week.

This week's Xbox One sale will be available until Tuesday, Oct. 24, 6 a.m. EDT. The new dashboard allows an easy transfer of games to external drives, home network or another console.

Family left toddler in corn maze, didn't realize until next morning
Employees told police they found the boy by himself and that no one had come forward to claim him by the time the maze closed. The boy was visiting the maze in West Jordan on Monday, Oct. 9, with a large family group, but was left behind.

The new Xbox One update is now rolling out and basically gets you read for Xbox One X, letting you transfer your games and get 4K stuff ahead of launch.

Those with experience of using the Xbox One dashboard will know that often it can become hard to find what you are looking for, especially, if you own a lot of items. They're easier to get to, and for me, pinning the games I play the most finally makes sense.

It'll also rearrange your notifications if you haven't turned your console on for a while, providing you with all the most important notifications/activities that you've missed first.

You can get personalized tips & help, smart notifications, community tips, & troubleshooting through the new Xbox Assist App.

This was released after a lot of testing from the insider team. Xbox One console owners can now personalize their #Home Screen better with new options.

The Fall Update starting rolling out earlier this week, so if you haven't already be sure to update your console.
