The truth is Xbox has been moving away from the physical format in recent years. Xbox Game Pass It is the great representative and value of the brand right now, which is why many users are no longer so attracted to the disc. Xbox Series S is proof of this.
That the great AAA exclusives of Microsoft coming to Game Pass on launch day doesn’t help, but there are still players who are very interested in collecting Xbox games. However, some are pulling their hair out with a change that “gives a little OCD.”
What are we talking about? If you are one of those who still supports the physical format, surely you like to have all your games in orders. The symmetry of the boxes is usually something that we all value and despite the fact that the covers of each title are usually different, the proportions are respected.
Nevertheless, A new change in the design of the covers and backs of Xbox games has made more than one collector desperate. We know that a picture is worth a thousand words, so here is the document that reveals this change:
Update – Apparently numerous newer games have this change.

Xbox games face another design change
Indeed, the harmony that should be respected at all costs, if you are orderly and good people, has gone to ruin with the latest adjustment of the new games that are coming to Xbox.
The new proportions of the backs of the games are slightly different and feature a green band that offsets the newer games with the older ones. The example is Cuphead or Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion released a short time ago.
We remember that Microsoft already made a change to the covers of its physical games when Xbox Series X launched, as it brought everything together to give that ecosystem feeling around the new console and also Xbox One. What do you think of this adjustment?
As far as the physical format is concerned, its days are increasingly numbered. Did you know that the digital format already accounts for 95% of the world’s video game revenue? Still, many editions keep coming to curry favor with collectors.
From Hobby Consoles we have talked about this topic on more than one occasion. Does anyone still want physical games? What do you prefer? Will the traditional format of a lifetime end up disappearing in the coming years or will it endure?
