There seriously needs to be an X1 slim already.

#1 Posted by PS4hasNOgames (1768 posts) -

There is no reason for it to be so enormous, when I had my X1 it was an eyesore to look at. I am hoping they make a slim version sooner than they did last gen.

Cool opinion.

And you just reached 500 posts. Congrats, you can now make threads in system wars.

Lol, I know you from the PlayStation forum so I will not call you a troller, but you're treading on a very fine line here. It's been only what 7-8 months, and you want a slim model even right after they committed to a price drop? Come on mate...

By the way I like the Xbox One look, it has definitely grown on me. Yes it's big and bulky compared to my PS4 but to say it's an eyesore? I think it looks nice, it has a nice sleek look to it.

Yea its way too soon. When sales start to slow down maybe. Isnt the reason to make a "slim" model because manufacturing becomes cheaper and better tech allows them to make it smaller/cheaper? It seems too soon for that. I heard they made it that big for coolong. they wanted to avoid the rrod disaster by all costs.

Pretty much nailed it. It's simply too soon in the systems life for this kind of thing. Give it about two years, at least. I'm glad they made it so big off the bat, it keeps it from running into overheating issues. I don't mind it really, the OG Xbox was a hulking beast as well, and it was one of my favorite game systems.

Really, I think it just fine, no bigger than my dish DVR, in fact they looks really nice together.

lol, Sorry everything can't be as small as your phone that struggles to play candy crush

yea it is pretty soon for a slim, but at least use harder plastic, the X1 scratches sooooooo easily. A soft diaper can scratch the damn thing.

I would expect three to four years down the line we would see a Xbox One Slim.

I have no problem with the size of the Xbox One.

It hasn't even been a year and you're already rooting for a slim down version....fuck off bro

@k2theswiss: did it propose to your DVR?

There needs to be an Xbox White first, in my opinion because, you know, White is better...

#18 Posted by daviddiorio (31 posts) -

Lol I don't know why people are complaining about the size so much. Put your Xbox 360 up next to it and you'll see they are virtually the same size the Xbox One's just more box like.

I didn't mind the original controller to be honest. Wasn't that bad I thought.

I could care less what the system itself looks like as long as it functions correctly and lets me play my games!

I'm mainly thankful for being quiet. I'm guessing the size is for the cooling: keeping it nice and quiet.

@sukraj:

The only thing I did not like with the original Xbox pad was the black and white buttons, they were too out of the way at the top of the pad. In fairness I feel the Xbox 360 pad nailed it in terms of layout and weight/design etc. The Xbox One pad is pretty good as well although I feel the user interface buttons (i.e. the snap and menu buttons) could have been labelled as start and select and maybe have a separate button for snap.

I totally agree regarding the original xbox pad.

R u going to get metro redux?

@sukraj:

I will see, probably not straight away but if there is nothing else out then perhaps I will to have something to give the Xbox a bit of a run out.

In terms of the topic, it would be nice to see a slim line model but I honestly think its too soon given the machine has not even been out a year.

It was definitely a little too big, but it was a lot more comfortable than say the PS2/PS3 controller for me.
