Imagine how glorious this is going to be for special editions.

So much space for the cool images and skins and you'll actually be able to see a bunch of it, unlike other special editions which generally you get to see the narrow strip that constitutes the faceplate once it is in your home theater setup.

Reminds me of the Mac Cube. Simple but with a big billboard space on all sides.

MS has come full circle with this. The Xbox finally morphed into a mini-PC just like how it started. If only it had the games of the Playstation, or Nintendo. And for the most part PC.

It's less about the hardware now for MS and more about selling gamepass subscriptions.

Because that wasn't one of the leaked images and because when you have this thing on your shelf you will never see that part of it.

Dunno what the problem is. I am looking at the black rectangle and slightly slanted black rectangle that are the XB1 and PS4 by my TV and this seems to be just as sufficent. I am not really expecting the PS5 to be a hovering, glowing sphere or anything either.

Yeah, consoles can look like anything. The Master System looks cool as hell, but when you really look at it, it looks odd. The Commodore 64 was just a damn keyboard. My first console, the Intellivision, looks super ugly, but I loved the thing when I was a kid!

So for me, the look of the thing is whatever, I have the equivalent of beer goggles with consoles. I get too pumped to see all the things they can do.

This is a bit of a throwback to the NEC PC-FX and I loved how that thing looked. And since we're talking about other systems, the Spice GameCube is my favorite odd looking console. The TG16 is my favorite normal looking console and is, for me, the gold standard for how a console should look.

I don't know... When the 3DO was released I thought to looked good. The Neo Geo CD wasn't awful to look at either.

That said, I'm completely indifferent on the looks of this prototype console. I don't care about how the console looks; I care about what it displays on my TV screen.

Me too! But it's ugly for sure. I will go all digital and stuff it away where I don't even have to look at it.

Do you guys not have computers?

Seriously though as someone who still has a massive black tower full of hardware on my desk this is not ugly to me in the slightest. I do have a preference for clean monolithic looking industrial design though.
