Microsoft and Sony announced their new generation consoles this year and we only knew about their internal specifications so far. They are only a year away from shipping to consumers but we had no idea how they’d look like.
A console design is one of the most recognizable things about it. The Xbox One looked like a huge VCR while the PS4 had a trapezoidal design. Well today, Microsoft unveiled how the next generation Xbox would look like, and it is…ummm…interesting.

The next gen Xbox will be called the Xbox Series X and from the press renders, it is even boxier than before. Messy naming scheme aside, it looks like a mini-fridge or a tower PC and that seems to the general sentiment when Microsoft launched the device.
As a refresher, the new Xbox Series X will be one powerful console. It will feature a custom AMD Zen 2 processor that is claimed to be 4 times powerful than the custom AMD processor on the Xbox One X. It also supports 8K resolutions, ray tracing, upto 120fps gameplay and that sweet but fast GDDR6 memory. It is slated for a Holiday 2020 release and Microsoft is turning up the hype on this console.
Of course Twitter had to comment on the Xbox Series X design and they are properly trolling the new console.
