Thanks for the link Samwise. It looks like a green ice cream sandwich!

LOL! http://www.xboxaddict.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Well, I actually don't mind the design too much. Except for the green plastic perhaps. http://www.xboxaddict.com/ubb/wink.gif

But I do think it will look quite a bit like this - if it's supposed to look like a VCR / DVD-player. Those things do look a bit like that, you know? At least I think it looks more real than the first bogus pictures. http://www.xboxaddict.com/ubb/smile.gif

The point of the DR article was that they confirmed the pic was a fake...

<font color=green>Daily Retard seldom has any point to make.

It is still considerable irresponsible journalism, to propogate bogus pics on the net. It does not matter if they then try to say this will more than likely not be it.


The pic was released 1 week ago. A simple statement by them would have been enough, they lead with it, in an attempt to get click-throughs.</font>

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>We contacted Microsoft and asked them to confirm or deny whether this was in fact the Xbox. Carrie Cowan, the PR manager for the Microsoft Games Division, made it plain when she told us, "this is definitely not the Xbox."
This will naturally come as a relief to Xbox fans, as the bogus image is pretty darn ugly

That picture was out on other fan sites before DR ran the story, and from this quote it seems pretty obvious they weren't telling anyone this was the real machine.

Somebody, however in the MS PR department sent me this wonderful version. http://www.xboxaddict.com/ubb/wink.gif

Man, I hope so... http://www.xboxaddict.com/ubb/smile.gif

Boots AND a light up Bill Gates? Makes me weak at the knees just thinking of it

<font color=green> Again, you do not responsibly run the story as a "teaser" lead.
