Not sure about the look of the system. Very square.

The new Xbox is called Xbox One

It's rather big.... and boxey... Like a Volvo.

Still, fairly impressed so far. The name was a bit if a surprise, but kinda makes sense with the approach to home entertainment they are taking.

I want to see Occulus Rift support!!

Largely underwhelmed by the look of the console, but I'm sure I'll get more excited when more information on specs, games and suchlike gets revealed over the coming months before its release in the autumn.

To steal a phrase from the Highlander films;

Watching the reveal now and looking very promising.
Peace through superior firepower.

It has a disk drive! Firstly, thank goodness they didn't go with their 'downloads only' plan, and secondly, does this mean that the door is open for backwards-compatability?

The names alright, I guess but Infinity sounded better to me.

It looks very good. Stylish, functional design not unlike the first Xbox. A little more sleek than that though. It is certainly a better 'looker' than the competition, though who really cares about the looks? It's all about the games and the functionality!

As long as it doesn't melt itself, I'll be happy.

I like the name. Calling it Xbox One makes it sound fresh compared to Sony's PS4, which just sounds like an updated version of an older model. I wasn't too fussed about what it was going to look like, it's what's inside it that counts. Having said that, I do actually like the look of it. Was hoping for a price estimation, but suppose we can't have everything all at once.
