Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One today and you might be surprised by what it looks like. Considering the bulky, unique original Xbox and the thin, sleek Xbox 360, the Xbox One is, well, a black block. Judging from the fact that Microsoft wants their Xbox One to be as much of a set-top box for televisions as a gaming console, the design is intentional. Simple, elegant, something that fits in every entertainment center.
We're not talking about just the console, however. We've also got a next-gen controller to look at as well as the next-gen Kinect. Both are said to have received outstanding improvements. While those improvements aren't really clear beyond, "better," it's evident from their design that Microsoft isn't going to shove them in your face. The Kinect and controller art simply... practical. They do their job. They're not system sellers.
So here's high quality images of the Xbox One, the Kinect 2.0 and the new controller. See if you can spot the upgrades and look forward to more... firm details when they break.
