TechRadar was recently treated to another up-close preview of the next gen, after managing to get hold of an actual – albeit non-functional – Xbox One console.
better than major's unboxing. Nice job guys @s8anicslayer following me now? I am flattered.
Gotta say it looks BIGGER than in the Mj Nelson vid. I thought it initially was not as big as I imagined - but watching this it is just so big. They seem to have purposely not shown the brick. So it is not really an unboxing is it? We need to see a video of PS4 and XB1 together - please! .ps This is much larger than my Tivo box under the TV. It would not fit in the slots we have. Shame it can't be stood up. Maybe the slim version...
Nice vid. I always thought some folks were being over dramatic about the size of the X1 its smaller than the ps3 phat and yet I never saw much about the ps3 being an issue, really these aren't mobile devices like cell phones, these are home consoles so its irrevelant. Seems they thought the console itself looks fine, along with Kinect and really liked the look and feel of the controller. Personally I think overall its a really classy looking console, the liquid black and grill design is sweet. Can't wait to feel that controller for myself.
@JOY - Actually it's wider than a PS3 Phat, and most importantly, the PS3 Phat had an INTERNAL PSU, and no brick. So it was bound to be bigger, a good comparison now is between PS4 and Xbone, and considering the PS4 is more powerful, and has an internal PSU, it shouldn't be smaller than the Xbone, but it is. On topic - I've got my PS3 stood up, I actually had my 360 stood up for a long time, until I knocked it over once, and then thought, better put it horizontally. Size-wise, it does look very big in the video for some reason. Only way it would fit in my main room would be with the TV stood on top of it, thus the entire weight of the TV will be on it. Don't like the fact that there are grills literally everywhere, these will let dust in like crazy and will probably need to be vacuumed regularly. Kinect again looks massive, it's almost as wide as a 360. Mystery port looks like USB B, the port that most printers use. Strange to see that there, I wonder what it's for.
gaffyh but overall dimensions its smaller, still we are talking very small amounts in either particular measurement, so essentially if a ps3 phat was fine for your setup X1 wont be a problem unless you had a small custom made entertainment center or something. Also I haven't seen the powerbrick for my 360 in years, thankfully everybody setup isnt as small as yours.
Actually it's not hard to find you cause your always first to comment on these stories. It warms my heart to know I can bestow flattery upon you.
GASP! Imagine that, Xbox One fans FOLLOWING Xbox One news. What're the odds?!
@Gman - It's sarcasm genius.
FYI theres a kinda xbox one-xbox 360 size comparison at 7:20
Awesome video can't wait to unbox my xb1.
Why did you get disagrees hahaha oh yeah people making themselfs feel better because they can not afford one maybe?
Although I agree that the disagrees don't make sense I'd just like to let you know that I can afford an xbox one but have decided to buy a PS4 instead. Remember there is competition out there. Therefore... http://xaxor.com/wp-content...
The shoulder buttons have been criticised a bit. One of the chaps here says its too clicky, but someone from ign (iirc) said that it was kind of awkward to press it? Hmm...I'll have to find out at Gamescom.
felt the controller myself, luckily about a month ago, and this was in fact my only gripe with the controller. I did not like the pull-back on the triggers in comparison to the 360, other than that, solid controller
You mean how the triggers went back to the original position? I'm worried about the motors in the triggers wearing out.
Ah thanks for your reply below. Hmm...that has me worried. I thought the pull-back was brilliant. If anything, I would hope for slightly more pull-back resistance. Ah well, I need to get a hands-on to make up my mind.
did they manage to scratch the kinect?
Yeah in the top left corner right? I noticed that too.
@septic, in response to your question to me, yes basically the amount of resistance when you pull the trigger, it appeared to be too light for me in comparison to the 360 controller. If this can be adjusted in settings, then no problem here I doubt it would wear out though.
That thing is huge wow.
That's what she said Lol couldn't resist sorry! But yea, both system are pretty big. Over time it may get smaller. Look at the original PS3 compared to the latest one out, the slim.
Too Boku, Too Boku! @ VENOMACR Yeah lol the Xbone is on a Steroids and Viagra combo!
In comparison the PS4 is sleek and much thinner. My missus would not allow anything that looks as bulky as that unless I hid it in a cupboard. If you are single or if you have a large space it will not matter at all. Its just those fussy partners..
Jaysus put it away lads I have just eaten!
Good unbiased video, Good point on the fact it doesn't really matter how big/what it looks like since it's most likely just going to sit under the tv

I don't like how they keep saying "oh the size, well that's not a big deal" It's a huge deal for someone like me. I have my TV in my bedroom and it is only on a small cabinet. Since the xbox one is so huge and cannot stand vertically (another major point) then that means I have nowhere to put it. This doesn't necessarily affect directly myself though as I will be getting the PS4 instead but surely there are some xbox fans that are having this problem.
It's not much bigger than XB360. And my satellite receiver is bigger than the XB One. I don't have a problem with it's size. It should look great next to my surround sound receiver and satellite receiver. And compared to my 65" TV it won't be too big.
