The lights are on
Microsoft's official Xbox blogger has released a picture of
how Xbox One game boxes will look - using Forza 5 as an example.
The picture is above. It's a slightly sleeker look than the 360
game box. It's interesting that the trademark Xbox green - which is largely
absent from the Xbox One console itself - returns in the boxes.

It's kinda ugly, but at least the green is still there. It's the "Xbox One" logo itself that is the problem.
Looks like a game box alright. Haha.
Streamlined and sexy, love it
That's some beautiful cover art if I may say so myself.
This is a nice looking box. I appreciated the lighter green of the 360 boxes, but this darker green is a welcome change. It's a bit more laid back and relaxing, less "Hey! Look at me! I'm your game box!".
I'm surprised game boxes are still as thick as they are. I would think they would be trimmed be a few millimeters to save space and save on shipping and transport costs for both vendors and consumers. It could at least be a bit shorter in its height... Oh well. A box is still a box I guess...
Looks Icy I'm getting it.
I like it
Its not 'gamey' enough; suspect. Ms tryna turn Xbox professional hipster.
Not a fan. Simplicity can certainly lead to powerful modern design, but this just doesn't really achieve that.
It looks like a game box... good enough I suppose.
I was hoping they'd ditch the green box, myself, but no biggie
