      Sounds like all that stuff that pops up on the PS4 when you accidentally press down instead of X to launch a game.

      “With this feature, you’ll be able to access great content for the games you’ve played recently from a Game Hub without ever having to leave the action. Mini Game Hubs provide an easy way to see friends who are currently playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more.”

        The Xbox already has game hubs, so these will simply condense that information even further into just the most relevant information.
