The very first retail Xbox One console off the production line

September 15, 2013 by Staff - Leave a comment


Wanna know the biggest news of the day? The retail box for the Xbox One console is green… and no we’re not kidding!

Major Nelson just tweeted a picture of the very first Xbox One retail console, fresh off the assembly line, in all it’s green glory and told everyone he’ll be taking it to the Tokyo Games Show.

At least now you know exactly what to look out for when November 22 rolls around… if someone tries to sell you a blue box – run away (unless it’s a PS4)! Just over two months to go now so not long.

[Pics] First Xbox One units shipping

September 4, 2013 by Staff - Leave a comment

We just told you that the Xbox One is arriving November 22 and now to get gamers that little much more excited Larry Hyrb (better known as Major Nelson / director of programming for Xbox Live) has revealed a few shots of final, retail-ready Xbox One consoles being shipped out.



Where the consoles are off to we’re not told, but presumably they’ll all be used for promotional purposes. So the good news is that you’re now more likely to see Xbox One kiosks around the place and maybe even get a chance to try the console out for yourself!

Also note the warning label on the boxes:


Actually, on second thoughts maybe they aren’t promotion units afterall…

Check out these PS4 display stands

Keep an eye out for these PS4 display units… later in the year.



Via Twitter, Sony released mock-up design pictures of what the actual Playstation 4 kiosks could look like when they hit retail stores before the end of the year (a release date for the PS4 is yet to be announced).

As you’d expect, and just like the PS4 Cheats website, blue features predominantly (maybe a little too predominantly). We still think the units are very slick though, and they will certainly whet gamer’s appetite even further for the PS4.
