The lights are on
In the world of video game roll-outs, one of the last things to show up is the actual retail box. While game publishers often have decided on and publicized the art for the game box some months earlier, those final boxes only show up in the weeks before release.
That’s why this brief glimpse from the Twitter feeds of @Xbox FR and its community manager @Mister_Moreau, are so tantalizing. We see a number of the final Xbox One boxes stacked together, ready to be played.
Xbox One and its launch games are out on November 22nd. If you’re picking up one of these new Microsoft systems, which launch games are you considering?
Our TakeStacked game boxes aren’t exactly world-shaking news, but these images do show off how close we are to the long-awaited system launch, and offer a potent picture of what Microsoft considers its top tier of launch products. As lineups go, Ryse, Dead Rising 3, and Forza should all show off the console’s new technology with aplomb.

Nothing too fancy I may not be getting an Xbox One but I like it.
ugh, enough with the tease, I'm getting forza 5 as my launch game, and that picture isn't helping out the wait. *closes eyes*
TITANFALL!!! Oh wait, it's not in the image? Drat. Still excited though.
Better than the 360 boxes that's for sure.
Getting Forza Five, Dead Rising 3, Ryse, Battlefield 4. That is all I can afford.
It always seems I'm stuck with racing games for every single console launch I have had. Forza and BF4 can sustain me however until Destiny and after that I don't know but I haven't payed attention to releases beyond what is coming at launch and shortly after.
Always end up racing and some times flying games every launch...
I definitely like the green coating, almost more than the 360 boxes. These also look a little skinnier, too.
Why are they see-through? Ugh. I'm also not a fan of the edges. They look a little thinner, too.
I think Ryse looks cool, but the multi -platform games are more my speed at the moment.
I like having more of the focus on the covers than obscuring them with words. A step in the right direction if you ask me.
like the simplistic design, glad they kept the green tint
