Upon first glance, the console does not look like a console, but a speaker, or maybe a washing machine, among other things...

But let’s not just judge the way it looks. That’s so superficial! There are many more important things, like how much it costs.

Some folks even had design ideas to improve the little Xbox’s design.

I think these fan-made designs are way better. (You listenin’, Microsoft?)

The Xbox Series S will be released on November 10 at a reasonable $299. That price is terrific! Its looks? Less so, in my opinion. But at that price, who cares!

Microsoft looked at how hard they gimped the original Xbox One and though “can we gimp the next console even harder?”, lol.
