    Thumbs up A White Xbox One



    http://www.t3.com/news/white-xbox-one-pictured

    The console is an early devkit according to the person that posted the image on Reddit and several other confirmed developers.

    According to one confirmed developer, it is one of the many Xbox One development kits that Microsoft sent to game-makers.


    “The zebra ones were also earlier devkits. We’ve gone though several revisions since the original alpha kit (giant server case) and the current one we have looks like the launch version,” posted XboxOneDev on the site.

    Earlier models featured unique zebra-like stripes designed to deter developers from leaking images of the console ahead of its official unveiling in May.

    At the launch event in May, Microsoft said that it would only be producing the console in black.

    Microsoft has a long history of using different coloured shells to distinguish between development kits and retail models of its consoles.

    For example, the original Xbox was black, while its development kit was green. With the Xbox 360, the console was white while the development kit was black.


    Microsoft eventually released limited edition versions of retail models with those colours.

    The response to the white Xbox One was much more enthusiastic than the black one that will be released at retail later this year.

    The release of the image of the white Xbox One comes just hours after news leaked that Microsoft will confirm that independent developers will be allowed to self-publish games on the console.


    “Our vision is that every person can be a creator. That every Xbox One can be used for development,” the company said in a statement to Engadget. "That every game and experience can take advantage of all of the features of Xbox One and Xbox LIVE.


    “This means self-publishing. This means Kinect, the cloud, achievements. This means great discoverability on Xbox LIVE. We’ll have more details on the program and the timeline at Gamescom in August.”

    It also came with confirmation that every Xbox One has the ability to become a development console.
    Yes, I want!

    Damn, that is slick. But I've always like black xboxs so I might just keep with tradition...if I get one.

    The black ones hide the uglyness better.
    Can see the washboard effect on the top far easier with the white versions.

    They're both ugly in my opinion.

    The console (in my opinion) is as plain as it gets. There is no real design. Its just a black box, and in this case white.

    8 years and counting!

    It does look better than the black one to me. Still not don't really care for this case but the white does make it look much better. I'm still wondering why MS strayed from the white and moved back towards the black systems with the 360. I wonder if they will offer these in white and black shortly after launch or at launch.

    The white isn't doing anything for me. The black looks better. I would prefer a gritty, gun-metal gray though.

    I love white consoles but that looks like $#@! compared to the black.
