Display specialist MMD revealed something rather unique today, launching the Philips Momentum, the world’s first designed for Xbox Gaming Monitor.

Xbox Gamers can look forward to a new option when it comes to gaming. Instead of picking up displays designed for their PC counterparts, like the Strix XG43UQ, or booting Netflix enthusiasts off-air to get into Gears of War, Xbox owners can now pick up something designed specifically for them. The new Philips Momentum is coming soon for eager adventurers to bathe in 55 inches of glorious 4k next-gen graphics. While this brand new monitor from the team at MMD might work with other platforms, the input of Xbox has this screen tuned to bring out the most from the new Xbox Series X|S systems.

“At Xbox, we’re always looking to give our fans’ choice in how, what and where they play their favourite games. Today, we’re excited to announce our partnership with Philips monitors to deliver the first Designed for Xbox monitors, giving fans a unique display with technology and features that provide the ultimate console gaming experience for Xbox Series X|S.” – Matt Kesselring, Director of Xbox Hardware Partnerships
