Xbox One box art confirmed

Microsoft reveals cover designs sticking with green hue for next-generation games.

Microsoft has confirmed the official Xbox One box art design.

The company provided an image of the box art for Xbox One launch title Forza Motorsport 5 over Twitter and through the Turn 10 Studios Facebook page.

The box art matches up with the designs that appeared on the Battlefield 4 website earlier this week. Microsoft is sticking with the green hue found on current Xbox 360 games.

The Xbox One launches later this year, though pricing information and specific launch timing have not been divulged. According to comments from GameStop management, the Xbox One will launch at a lower price point than the Xbox 360 did in 2005.

Are you people seriously arguing about a box?

There's a game in it, you know, you don't actually play with the box.

Either the gamers are getting really picky, or there are very few gamers left out there.

Dear Microsoft,

Please concentrate more on gaming rather than making it look pretty.

                   Sincerely,

                             Gamers who care about the games

Reasoning: Microsoft still has a few million Xbox 360 cases lying around and want to use them up.

Never been a fan of the green myself so this is disappointing.  Still box art matters so little in the long run.

Every disc I own ends up in a heavily customized book of disc sleeves anyway :P

I'm sorry but what the hell is that.

I'm trying to be objective here, but I really hope Sony isn't going this way when it comes down to boxart: there's a thin line between stylish simplicity and... well, this.

Hope the plastic game cases are shorter, the way PS3 game and Blu-ray cases are.

Those tall 360 cases don't fit on a shelf as well, and it feels like a waste of plastic when the disc is circular and there's a lot of empty space in the case, and since games usually don't have paper manuals anymore.

Lame boxart. It's the same as the x360... I prefer ps3's boxart, same as my bluray movies.

Gee, the art and design department at MS really went crazy with that one! :-P
I'm just picturing a bunch of hipster marketing types with roll-necked skivvies and goatee beards, siting around a table, drinking latte's. Someone pipes up - "Hey, how about a GREEN stripe along the top of the box?"

"Wow, that's just CRAZY, man, where do you get these wild ideas!!?"

These big boxes are environmental waste. they should make the plastic just big enough to encircle the Disc and that's it, it will look good, save retail space and also space in our homes. Manuals should be on pdf , ecopy or as an iphone/android app.

bluray cases don't deserve absolute crap like that in them

@Spartan_418  

Ps3 cases look so stupid on a shelf with DVDs and PC games, why they decided to make them a different height to almost every other disk case on the planet is beyond me. They look so out of place on a shelf when everything else lines up perfectly

@sonyfreak456 IMO, the box size of PS3 should be combined with the box art of Wii U or Gamecube. I loved the upside down arch more than that ugly green or grey block.

@ddoggbritt16 It's probably a good thing they don't have them. Means you can learn anything you need to in-game. 

Then again, some games still have thick manuals. Though it's a year-old, FFXIII-2's manual could be considered massive.

@zombiewarrior07 That's not MS dolt. Turn 10 designed the case.

@sladakrobot no it will be on pc, just because the xbox will fail doesn't mean forza disappears forever

@Lazy_Marine Careful what you wish for. Everything is going digital, music is already there and movies are almost. I predict the generation after this won't even have a disc drive and the reasons you stated will be the reasons they give but it's really to save on manufacturing costs. How long before money is no longer printed? Something to think about...

@Overlord93 @Spartan_418 You are the 21th century version of the dumb guy who would complain about CD cases being too tall and thin compared to cassette cases. Congratulations.

@obsequies  Keep dreaming. No Forza entry left the console yet.
And the X1 will surely not fail,that is only a wish of haters and fanboys. The console will do fine and the E3 will prove it.

@Bellum_Sacrum  

That's an awful analogy, CDs are completely different to cassettes, whilst blu-rays and DVDs are identical in shape.

@obsequies You should grow up and stop posting 30 (hate) comments in every X1 related news.
Ok this news has low numbers but you know what i mean.
