From a design perspective, why is the console so big? It's so big yet still has an external power brick too. I would understand the size if the specs were a bit beefier, but that's not even the case here, so what's taking up all that room, is it all the Kinect components?

Microsoft is taking every single measure they can to make sure the console runs as cool as possible.

Specs don't matter, but size does.

Its about the size of a DVR. Its meant to never be turned off, need that room and big fan to keep it cool.

According to what people who've been going to these events have been saying, it doesn't really look that big when you see it.

I would say this too. It probably will never overheat

I think it's mainly because of the cooling fan.
