The Xbox Sequence X is ugly. I do know some are charmed by its brutalist slab design, however a factor will be ugly and charming on the similar time, and it is form of cute how un-designed the brand new Xbox is in comparison with the PS5’s curvy chassis. Nonetheless, a factor can be ugly and never charming in any respect, however merely grotesque, which I would argue is the case for this Xbox Sequence X-shaped fridge.
Microsoft is leaning into jokes in regards to the Sequence X’s fridge-like design with this giveaway, however what I take pleasure in in regards to the advertising and marketing gag is that the Xbox Sequence X does not even look good as a fridge. It appears to be like like a horrible fridge, and one I would solely need to personal it if I had no different fridge choices. If that is the case for the one that wins it, I am pleased for them, however unhappy for them, too, as a result of now they’ve to take a look at this Xbox fridge.
It does not assist that, as a part of the gag, Microsoft lit the fridge inside with the sickly Xbox hue, presenting the meals within the least appetizing doable gentle. It additionally stocked the fridge with donuts, which do not go within the fridge. Who’s consuming chilled donuts? Inform them to cease.

We’re watching this yr’s new console launches from the sidelines, in fact, though they don’t seem to be completely inconsequential to PC players. Microsoft just lately recommitted to releasing all first-party Xbox exclusives on PC, for example, and maybe PC case designers will take notes from what Microsoft and Sony have been as much as.
I hope not, as a result of Sony’s effort does not do a lot for me, both. The Xbox Sequence X could appear to be an unpleasant fridge (and in addition be ugly as a fridge), however the PlayStation 5 appears to be like like an beginner idea render of a next-gen console that may’ve hit the highest of Reddit circa 2010. In the intervening time, my style is leaning extra within the course of Noctua CPU coolers than shiny white sci-fi armor.
