ps4 xbox one box -

The next generation war is currently being fought over DRM – it seems the games have taken a back seat for now – but what if your only criteria for picking up a new console was how much you liked the box design?

Sony's PS4 box is bright blue and white, and features a shot of the console and DualShock 4 controller on the right, with the PS4 logo on the left. The Xbox One box is black, putting imagery of the console, controller and Kinect to the left, with the logo appearing on the right.

Let us know which you prefer.

From the box, as the description asks us to judge, I'd say the Xbox One takes the cake. It's chic and black and white like a AMEX Centurion Card advertisement which is all about luxury and being the "it" card. As for system wise meh idk. I spend most of my time on CoD so it's kind of depressing that Xbox One is getting *****ty 720p graphics (just for COD) while PS4 is going to get 1080p. But Xbox hasn't let me down before so I'm probably getting the one because of my prior experiences with Microsoft/Xbox even though I know my CoD experience is going to be pathetic compared to a PS4.

i'd give Microsoft a 4/10 because it reminds me of my old VHS/DVD player, but for the PS4 8/10 because its got that irritating slope that for someone that don't like things out of place it my wreak havoc on there mind. xD

I think I know who designed the Xbox One packaging...

The packaging could end up selling more units than any convention show or advertisement. Happens all the time. That said, I think that while the PS4 attracts the eyes, the Xbox One looks sleeker and more modern. Packaging only, of course. I dont know, they both are lacking honestly.

PS4 box wins hands down, it looks more fun and is more descriptive, even telling consumers it's a 500GB model. Plus it shows the whole console. And consumers can see straight away it's the next model on from the PS3. You also know straight away it's a games console.

XBox One box is dark and gloomy, and doesn't show the whole product, probably for a good reason as it's not exactly attractive. It could also cause a lot of confusion like "Why are there two of them on the front?" and "Why should I buy an older generation XBox when my son/brother/grandson already has the newest version?" The only clue that it's a games console is the iconic image of the XBox controller, otherwise it could be anything.

xbone box has an elegance and premium/luxury look for what it's worth. at least it looks the part of being more expensive... i don't doubt that it might move some units actually.

Xbone by a mile because they didn't try and show the whole console. It should just be a partial view, from whatever angle makes it look better. I really do like the background, though, which is difficult to get right.

Some Commenters below me cannot grasp how important and divisive the issue of the packaging is.
