The Xbox One Design Team Dodges The Question Of Why It Looks Like A VCR

By: Zach Walton - May 30, 2013

Why does the Xbox One look like a VCR? Let the folks at Microsoft tell you:

So, what have we learned? Apparently, the Xbox One’s design reflects the power of the machine as well as the history of the Xbox brand. It’s also meant to reflect the rectangular design of the Xbox One UI. It still doesn’t really explain why it looks like a VCR, but maybe the team at Microsoft just doesn’t realize that themselves.

Looking on the bright side, the Xbox One controller doesn’t look like a VCR. It also got rid of that annoying battery bump that was on the back of the Xbox 360 controller. At least Microsoft’s design team gets points for that.

    I don’t like how they are handling used games, and that the kinect has to always be connected. Not sure if I’m going to buy this version. If sony doesn’t have the same restrictions, they can probably mop up.
