I'm hoping that this image is not of the console but of something else that connects to the console. I mean that looks really tacky so far. I was hoping for white console with a nice smooth look to it. This system looks like one of those cheap cellphones. I don't know what possessed them to make a grey console.



Lets all hope the system looks better than this cause its making me worried.

From that shot I can't really envisage the final design? Presumably the shot was taken upright, and if so it looks like the top of a PC tower case.

Not really got anything against it being grey-silver.

I think that's actually been confirmed as J Allard's lunch box

Well thank God SPONG had it CONFIRMED with their "inside sources."

Oh wait, they didn't. They just stated the obvious.

It's the attached hardrive on the side of the 360.
So what your looking at is the view from top down. (keep in mind the xbox is an upright console)

Well, although the one in the link you were sent doesn't match the one SPOnG has as "official", remember a few things:

1. We were told customisation was part of 360's marketing. Surely, multiple colours of console could be amongst this?
2. That is definately Mr Allard. I had it zoomed in and could identify him from his HAND. He's very distinctive, somehow. So the pic you linked is definately real.
3. It was a dev meeting. The machine in your pic could be a dev housing, and not a fully finished design.

It reminds me of the Panasonic Toughbook notebook PC, and I actually quite like that. Looks portable too, so they're going to encourage more LANage...

Thankfully this console looks like it might have the DS plastic-like looks.

I am still hoping Microsoft flops this generation. Sorry for the blatent anti-Microsoft comments, but I really can't stand the thought that that particular company could be in control of gaming from next gen.
No longer frequenting SPOnG. It's been nice knowing you guys :).

Agreed, however, I believe that Microsoft is doing what it has done in the past. Apple was the first to create a true interactive interface WAY back when (mouse to icon control etc). Microsoft then proceeded to utilize this primarily for their interface. Why not steal a good idea, rather than come up with your own. What is the relation to this. Aside from encasing the dev kits in a G5 case, it seems like they're stealing the sleek Apple-esque design sceme to capitalize on aethetic appeal. The depth of the gaming industry used to be ideal for swimming, now you can barely get your feet wet. Except of course if you dare to wade into Nintendo's end of the pool.
