I'm just curious, because I think it looks like a VCR from the 1980s. Its flat all the way around, and square as a brick. Not a streamlined design at all. Its not even cool looking. Why would they spend hundreds of millions designing this thing to end up with a retro VCR design? This old VCR I got from 1988, I guarantee they didn't spend 100s of millions designing this thing.

That's what VCRs looked like in the 1980s

I like it, I think it looks nice, especially with the white light for the x symbol.

I've never really hated any design but the original wii, just because it was so annoying that the vertical stand was detached.

It's still not the prettiest device, but it's not as bad as seeing it for the first time during the reveal.

No, not that it is ugly, its just a box. Doesn't look great, but the white Xbox one is definitely better looking than the original black.

i dont like the way any of the big 3 look last gen or this gen. the shiny slim 360 was coolish..... but now that i think about it no console has really looked all that good. they follow the typical layout as most home electronics. flat, square/rectangle. like any dvdplayer/vcr/stereo/cable boxes etc.

Absotively posolutely this statement! Though I'm sure the VCR comments are made by the people who have never owned a VCR (I had a betamax... yeah, I suck), it wasn't love at first sight, but yeah, it works!

Yeah I like how it looks in the tv unit. It matches the look of other devices and doesn't look like a toy. It could probably be a bit smaller though.
