Turn your Xbox One into a fireplace, snowy forest or beach front for the festive season

If you fire up your Xbox One right about now you should be seeing an icon on the dashboard to turn your console into a roaring fireplace for the festive season. Or a snowy forest. Or a beach front with rippling water. Microsoft has added the trio of ambient themes to the console for you to use at your leisure. Or if you don't have a real fireplace.

It's not the first and only place Microsoft has done this either. The Bing homepage can also be turned into a flickering fire to brighten up your seasonal searching.

Happy holidays!
