White Xbox One development kit spotted online

Shot of a white Xbox One development kit surfaces online, and anonymous Xbox One developer says current Xbox One development kits look like the retail units.

by

A picture of an alleged white Xbox One development kit has been posted online.

The top-down view of the hardware, posted on Reddit, shows a machine that looks reminiscent of the Xbox One retail model.

Anonymous Reddit poster XboxOneDev, who has been verified by site moderators as an Xbox One developer, added that previously spotted shots of a zebra-patterned unit were for old iterations of the hardware. "The zebra ones were also earlier devkits. We've gone through several revisions since the original alpha kit (giant server case) and the current one we have looks like the launch version."

In June, Xbox creative director Carl Ledbetter showcased dozens of original prototypes for the Xbox One at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference 2013.

"We wanted to make [the Xbox One design] simple and elegant, and we wanted it to be crafted and tailored, so it's all about quality," said Ledbetter at the time. "Using those principles, we started to design."

Xbox One will launch in 21 territories this November for $499/€499/£425.

Assuming I ever buy an Xbox (I won't) I'd rather it be in white.  With a black system you need to do a great deal of sanding and priming before you can give it a custom look to take away from the crappy out of the box style that they sell you.  With a white system though, you sand less, use less primer, and less paint as well.

That doesn't look bad. It reminds me of iRobot, though.

That's even uglier than the black one... Dude what the heck. I'm scared to see the "slim" version when it releases. Or is the cool thing now to release a bigger version later on?

Lies. If this was a dev kit there'd be coffee stains on the case and chip crumbs in the vents.

Yall dumb as shyt if yall think this is ugly. PS4 would stand out in my living room with that old ass 90's look.  I liked ps3 though. The look was ahead of its time.

i don't get it people their the same, exactly the same. Inside their the same except the sony one is slanted. why does everyone continually rag on xbox one. because to me it seems to be more future proof their ideas are looking at the futue of entertainment gaming and a multitude of other things.

question: if sony's console is black 

then why isn't the X1 white? are they trying to mimic the PS4? 

or they just want to charge more for the white edition?

@lonesamurai1 

People rag on the X1 for S&G. 

  Actually PS4 looks a lot better in comparison and is small enough to fit inside the X1.    You gotta admit that's one BIG Ugly Effer there.........

@quickshooterMk2 @DSCesq  "gamers" are people who play games. They can criticize about the consoles, what they like/hate about it, but "gamers" in the end of it all only care about games, regardless of the console.
