Xbox Series X box art has made it out into the wild with a big ‘ol ‘Optimized for Xbox Series X‘ sticker right on the front. While it’s obvious to see where Microsoft was going with this particular piece of marketing material, it seems the market as a whole really isn’t feeling the look.

It’s important to keep in mind that this is Xbox One box art with Series X branding, but it looks like Microsoft is looking to blend the two generations in both support and marketing efforts. Sony recently unveiled their take with a white overlay, but that didn’t seem to clutter it up as much as this optimization notice.
