Images of Early Xbox One Prototype Tell a Grim Zebra Story

By   /   Apr 6, 2015

The Xbox One is currently available in a sleek black or white finish that runs across the whole design. However, at one point Microsoft was planning to go for a black and white combination for its console.

A couple of images that have popped online showcase an early prototype of the Xbox One, with zebra stripes that are said to be randomly generated. Thus, giving each console a unique key, in a manner of saying.

The idea however was canned, and for good reason. The thing looks hideous, even for an early prototype. I personally have always found it bizarre for people to be taking shots at the Xbox One’s design. Putting aside the bulky element, I still find the sleek finish an attractive feature.

We’re not sure about the authenticity of the images. The aspect of a randomly generated design does have merit. Who wouldn’t want their purchase to be unique. However, one issue with such is the impossibility of carrying it over for other designs.
