New Unofficial Xbox Branding Identity Is Crazy Enough To Work

FleshEatingZipper writes: You may not be familiar with Cory Schmitz, but he’s a designer who’s done plenty of work for the gaming industry, most recently with the PlayStation title Sound Shapes and the branding for Polygon. Well, after an “one-afternoon branding jam”, Cory came up with an interesting take on the next generation of Xbox branding, a wave that’s rumored to include tablets and smaller set top boxes. (Xbox, Xbox 360)

I wish MS would move away from that awful shade of green, I hide my Xbox games in a cupboard because I hate staring at that nauseating hue.

I like this branding though, the actual box representing the box in xbox is genius.

Although, the more I look at it the more I see the Playstation X and square lol.

I am personally not a fan of the Xbox box because it is a weird green and the big banner across the top. However, I feel this one (in the article) is too minimalistic and the Logo needs to be bigger but I do love that Xbox live logo. Very modern. I can see Microsoft doing something like this but I think the main Xbox logo needs to be bigger and placed somewhere else

The PS3 had a terrible one with a red PS3 logo square and a massive boarder with Playsation 3 on it. I am glad they changed this and went with a more modern PS3 logo it looks better. I feel they still needed to stay away from the see through boxes though. Black boxes suited the design.

I like the 230 case shade better than the original xbox's.

OT:The looks is... ehhh okay. Leaves more space for the boxart

An "X" and a box....hmm...
Where's the v=creativity & imagination in that? Looks a bit amateurish.
Don't like the color. Design looks uninspired...
