This first design calls to mind the original Xbox, although this looks far more sleek. The large vents here would go a long way towards ensuring that the no doubt powerful hardware within is kept at an optimal temperature. In keeping with Microsoft's simplistic and all-inclusive naming styles (Xbox One meaning an all-in-one device) the logo here features the Xbox text with a superscript number two.

Everything about this design screams a streamlined and focused approach, which is exactly the kind of mindset Microsoft should be in when they unveil the next generation console.

Next up we have the same concept with a darker background, which lets the neon green lights pop a lot more. Notice the light bars on the controllers. This concept is already in effect on the PS4, but it's more subtle here. The stylistic aspect of it with the halved "X" shaped lights really make the controllers stand out.

When the Xbox 360 released, face plates were an option to customize the system. While they didn't take off, this concept introduces alternate cases with different colored lights. For the Call of Duty and Battlefield fans out there, the digital camouflage (right) is a must.

Here we have a more detailed look at the controller concept. High precision options are more in demand than ever as competitive gaming is on the rise. Even Microsoft has seen fit to release an elite controller for the Xbox One that is designed specifically to be as precise and customizable as possible.

Speaking of customizable controllers, these digital camouflage options with blue light bars are an excellent alternative to the standard black design. Old school Xbox gamers will appreciate the retro color scheme on the standard controllers, but the new generation will certainly enjoy the other color options.

Our final concept here is a close inspection of the controller. Notice the length of the triggers on the back. This is a deliberate design choice as it provides a far more accurate measurement of the pressure being placed on them. For shooters, this type of control over the triggers is an absolute must.

Notice the triggers down on the handles of the controller. A great use for buttons like these would be for intense moments in a game, like sprinting. Instead of clicking the stick, you can focus your adrenaline and grip the controller, thus pressing the buttons on the grip, to run. Another great examples is during a cut scene if you need to exert force, instead of mashing a button like we're used to, press both those triggers in and hold the controller tight.

The controllers are too much like the ps4 controllers, leave the analog stick where they are now.

Controller layout

Don't change it to that if anything changes it back to the 360 controller the way the analog sticks are I wouldn't even think of buying the console that's why I won't touch Playstation disgusting controller layout

Don't like those controller's?

I agree with Jorge that they look like PS4 design. I really like the one concept controller's by the guy from India with the touch controller's but would add the analog joy stick without the buttons on the controller. Everything else would be touch screen base. The console should be some how likeness of NEC console "the switch " Where you can have the optional to either finish playing with your console or switch to Windows platform. Or even make the digital copy go everywhere you go and play from pc or tablet and phones IOS,ANDRIOD and the same for the new tablets. Play other players on any one platform like console,ps4,nec and pc platforms. It gives gamers the choice to play with or from any device they feel comfortable at. Make the controller's compatible with your choices. And make full windows were we can download right from the xbox2/project Scorpio to the hard drive or SD card,External hard drive so we can place our own wallpaper or Screensaver. I like using my own pictures. We should be able to via remote sync to the console from anywhere on whatever we are using at the time and play were we lifted off on the console. Just make it unlimited to what gamers expected in a universal console with no limit. And keep it from being hacked and would recommend it report back to Xbox whomsoever is performed a illegal activities. This is some of gamers and myself idea in the creation of your new PC/CONSOLE give it some consideration. I know you can't please everyone but Microsoft and Xbox always come through for its consumers. Thank you for your time?




The bottom 2 triggers look like they would snap in half...
