A hardware company designs better hardware than a software company? You don't say.


You mean a company that has built consoles, phones, and tablets. They had this figured out with the original Xbox but apparently forgot how to do it with the 360 and Xbone?

MS's hardware philosophy is similar to 'let's assembling a PC, get all the parts and make them work together'. It doesn't have to be pretty, as long as it works.

Sony is a consumer electronics company, when they design a hardware, functionality often isn't the only requirement.

If you truly believe Microsoft doesn't care about aesthetics you are both high and drunk. I'm surprised at all the people claiming that Microsoft doesn't care about aesthetics & design.

If you think there's any aesthetics in Xbone you have a very poor taste

Lack of a good product does not indicate lack of trying. Trust me, there too much money riding on the Xbone for Microsoft to not try on the design/aesthetics department. They just did a very poor job.

There will most definitely be a refresh next year. Hopefully then they'll learn how to get the PSU in the box.

It's not called a power brick when it's inside the unit like it's supposed to be.

"Why does the Xbone has a power brick" (Lol read that again).

Why does it have one? Simple, because MS wanted to keep it away from the system. Is that the answer you're looking for?
