XMNR: The good and the bad of Microsoft's Tuesday reveal of the Xbox One have been covered and now it is time to dive into the ugly.
I wouldn't call it ugly per se, but it does lack pizazz.
I liked some of the tech they were showing - as a nerd, you'd be crazy to say it "sucked" - but as a GAMER, it certainly left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
I don't really mind the looks of it. It's not inspiring, but not that ugly either, IMO. What's really ugly is the inside of it: -Anti used games -24 hour offline play -Paid online (like it has been with the first two consoles) -Huge emphasis on TV and sports, something we already have been doing for decades long before video games even existed, and we certainly won't need yet another set-top box
Yeah, the console isn't great looking, but it's not horrible looking either. All the rest of that stuff, though...
I want to know what those exclusive are. Better yet what those 14 games are since one is definitely Halo. That game tied to profile thing is a no go. I'm sure Microsoft will have a better E3 showing.
I don't like the look of the xbox 1, it's just not good looking...but I am expecting Microsoft to launch a cheaper version of the 1 with out the added rif raf... maybe that 1 will look better...
Honestly i do care what it looks like. As is it's ok.
Crap. Ment to say i don't care what it looks like
I'm curious as to the what angled ridges on top serve for. Is it simply for looks? Is it a heat vent? Is it a wash board? And why is only half the console covered in it. I think Winry could have designed something more appealing to look at.
Yeah it's freaking ugly alright!
If built with good materials it will look simple and elegant and will fit all the other elertronic equipement under tv.
not really, it's a huge ass VCR. What's there to like? VCR is not simple & elegant. it is meant to be huge and hideous. I don't want that thing sitting anywhere near my tv or even in my house.
@Valentinus Judging by photos its like 4x size of its controller so how is that huge? I doubt new PS will be smaller. You have to fit all this hardware somewhere. And whats there to like? Simplistick design. Something for people with taste
"Something for people with taste" Yeah thats funny, if you like that VCR XBone thingy. Then my friend, you've got not taste at all.
It has definitely more taste then plastic toy X360 or inflated soap box PS3. Youll get it with age. Hopefully
I think it looks more like an HTPC case than a VCR. I have a Silverstone case that looks very similar but just a different color.
personally i think it looks cool. i wouldn't mind having a box like that sitting next to my launch model 60GB PS3. but i will be getting the PS4 over the XONE.
i wont be buying it i dont like it
