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.
