From Green Light to Boot-Up: Behind the Scenes of Xbox One’s Development

"If you have any voices in your head," Xbox general manager Leonardo del Castillo told us as we approached Microsoft's anechoic chamber, "you'll hear them in there." The room achieves outer-space-like absolute silence, and is one of the many places where the Xbox One evolved.

We spent three days in Redmond learning not only what the Xbox One looks like and what it can do, but how it became a reality. Every part of designing a console — from hardware engineering to industrial design — is a huge undertaking, and spending so much time behind the curtain drives that home. Whether designing hardware components in-house, 3D-printing dozens of controller mockups, or just making sure the final product delivers as promised, the Interactive Business Division spent nearly two years getting everything just right. And since were were already there, we thought some photography might be in order. Enjoy. (Dev, Microsoft, Tech, Xbox One)

Kids...gather around gather around. Here you have a troll in its most natural of habitats.

Kid "Trolls live under bridges"
Instructor laughs "They have evolved and now live on the interwebz and click on articles they have no reason to be in. When you get older, it may be worse. We call this one Perry Caravello."

It was an anti-consumer policy. If you disagree, state why and provide a factual response.

Don't just say the word 'troll' as if you've accomplished something lol. You haven't stated why you disagree, why it's wrong... anything really.

That's fine. Think of something next time.

at least their no gpu or cpu under the Blu-ray drive it should be a should piece of hardware. I cant wait to see how Sony is cooling their unit..
kenmid  +   795d ago
Its pretty cool to see the system come together.
falviousuk  +   795d ago
hopefully we will see more of the games running on actual xbox one hardware at gamescom. They should have finalised it by then ready for production.
coolasj  +   795d ago
Not like it really matters but, why do Xbox's always look so empty? Their so much empty space in their boxes and it's like they could make them tons smaller. I opened my PS3 once and it was packed to the rim with just metal and innards.
jeffgoldwin  +   794d ago
It's kind of a trade off. More space gives you better cooling, but doesn't look as compact and ultra high-tech.

Multiplats were running on PCs as already stated because they hadn't even had the alpha process of optimizing for consoles, it was the same with Sony. Lococycle being the exception as they just switched their tech to the new platform 6 months ago. All the X1 exclusives were running on dev kits.
