I’ve never particularly liked the industrial design of the Xbox One, or the PS4 for that matter. They’re not awful, they’re just meh.
Both consoles were designed for utility and cost effectiveness first, aesthetics last. For example the size of the new consoles are apparently due to the demand that they be able to be on all the time while being nearly silent. The cheapest way to achieve that goal is to make them giant boxes with big fans inside.
But now someone has posted a white XBONE on Reddit and omg, it beautiful! It’s amazing how simply a better color choice can add so much style to the console. I hope that MS realizes how much better XBONE looks in “Storm Trooper White” and releases a version for the public.
