Card Lebetter who is the Industrial Designer of Xbox and is also the man behind designing Xbox One has shared his thoughts about how he and his team went about developing Microsoft's next gen console.
"Xbox One Designer: Xbox One Is 'One of Those Products That Don’t Happen Very Often'" He's right, the last time we saw products like this was back in the 80's http://www.tvfilmprops.co.u... That's a joke before people call the trolling police. Jokes are still allowed, right? To balance it out, the PS4 looks like one of those parallelogram erasers lol.
Sorry Lukas, must turn you in, I am able to track you down with my X1 and Kinect.... :)
^^^ You'll never take me alive! *Slits neck with sharp PS4 edges*
Haha! I saw that one coming. Kind of funny/tragic how Microsoft recently have been trying to do the same thing as Sony did with Mark Cerny and PS4, but every time they do, they're shot down instantly.
yeah ,xbox one is ugly as hell and it's all your fault
"one of those Products that don't happen very often" Yes and there is a very good reason why.
I disagree I prefer the look of the xbox one over the PS4 and WiiU. yes it is big but I don't think it looks that bad and in my tv cabinet it goes with my Sony surround sound amp and media server I have in there better than the WiiU dose or the PS4 will when I pick one up.
My friend owns and Xbox one and I own a ps4. I took it round to his house and he prefers the look of my ps4 and I preferred the look of the Xbox one.
Its just each to there own. I don't like the look of the Iphone's or Samsung Galaxy phones but love the HTC One and Lumia 925. We have choice for a reason as we all like different things. For me I don't buy technology because it looks good I buy it because it dose what I want it too. I never liked the look of the fat ps3 but I wanted one so I got it. I did not like the look of the original DS but I wanted one so I got it.
Come on guys , show a bit of love for the ugly sister.
Don't let the internals fool ya, it's not even a long distant cousin!
Yeah a console with Elephantitis
edit: Oh it's about the actual design lol. nvm.
I think overall the Xbox One is a fairly decent console but it annoys me sometimes when I put the game in and it starts playing at the end because I forgot to rewind it
You had me in tears with that one lmao nice work def a funny bubble
Not defending the box but he talks about the whole "design" internals hardware, cooling, layout and exterior - not only about the look of the brick And sorry to say that but its not a very high achievement compared to the much slimmer powerbrickless 220volt lownoise and still higher corespeeds ps4 - wich even looks better (in my point of view)
Couldn't agree more
OK. You were fine until you talked about the low noise of the PS4... I have both side by side on top of a table in open space for free air flow. The X1 is only very slightly noisier when both machines are idol. But the PS4 fan really kicks in when the machine starts any sort of significant workload on Blu-ray playback or gaming. The X1 fan never kicks in for Blu-ray playback and only once and a while kicks in for gaming. At first I set both machines up under my desk in a slightly enclosed area. The PS4 had its fan full speed 80% of the time. It was so annoying that I moved both to the table top.
had that problem too its a faulty ps4 - happens :( if your unit makes loud fan noises get a replacement
Well it will let me play the M$ exclusives that I want to play, so there's that... but lets face it, sitting next to the PS4 - this thing isn't going to be winning any design awards. Going to have to win people over with impressive software/features and games because the hardware just feels/looks rushed imo
It's also one of those products that doesn't sell very often. Zing lol jk
Technically, he's right. They don't make too many VCR's nowadays.
Ha this gave me a laugh but still your design was VCR bro why?
I agree. Like New Coke, Microsoft WebTV, Apple Newton, Crystal Pepsi. That 32mb's of ESRAM was one of the most baffling design decisions ever. It would be like giving a muscle car a 0.3 Liter engine. Actually something less then a muscle car, but still supposed to be sort of fast.
What do they mean? An xbox that won't break every 6-12 months ;) I'll wait for the cheaper slim line, yeah I can wait 2/3 years, Microsoft can do one, once I've finished with my 360 ;)
