I think it looks really cool lol and at the same time stupid because of the size
With current fabrication tech it could be possible to shrink that beasty down by more than half. 2000 - 2020, it may be a cue of what is coming for the 20th anniversary ;)
Cool, but bulky
it's the xbox DNA. did you forget how big the original xbox and launch xbone were?
That was such a cool prototype. It was too bulky for a retail product, but it looks awesome. That would be sweet for a custom PC build.
I still remember the announcement, and definitely haven't forgot what this monster looked like! Still, though bulky, it is a cool prototype and wonderful piece of gaming history.
Maybe not practical but i would have brought it like that liked that prototype would sit nice next to my panasonic gamecube now tbh :).
Woah, what a wacky looking machine. I'd never heard of it! Does it play PAL?
Doesn't really look much smaller than OC Xbox. *snicker*
Wow it was actually an X. The prototype looks real heavy.
Became a formidable competitor to ps2 🤣🤣 that’s hilarious ps2 sold 155 million meanwhile Xbox and GameCube barely sold 25 million each.
Ps2 was a great system in many ways but I hated how EVERY single game looked so grainy. Like a permanent grain filter was applied to everything. Even Gamecube was sharper. Loved how the ps2 was a dvd player too tho
Yup, even the Dreamcast looked sharper because of the VGA output
This would be awesome to just have in your gaming room... Imagine what something of that size could do with today's tech, lol.
I always thought it was cool to see this prototype in the original Ninja Gaiden on the OG XBOX
Did any gamer manage to get one somehow?
So much nicer than the fugly xbox. So pleased they did better on the 360 and xbone
I remember hearing about the Xbox so many years ago before it got released... This is cool! :)
looks like a table stand. LOL!
That would be awesome to behold at my house.
Cool coffee table stand.
Maybe they could resurrect the design for the next Xbox, but make it way slimmer.
