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.

So many good games :O
those are some sexy cases
AWWWWWWWW ***, TIME TO BUST ME OUT SOME ZOO TYCOON!!!!!!!
These will look pretty damn sexy in my collection!
I like the design of the box. It's simple, clean, and nice. The only thing I don't like is how the green part see-through. Other than that, it's pretty good.
Those look like green blu-ray cases.
If I was getting one, it would be DR3 and Forza. Ryse looked like garbage in the trailers.
Forza 5 & BF4 to start
I thought Microsoft wanted to get away from the color green associated with their new system? I asked the same question when they showed a picture of what the box is going to look like when the system ships. I can safely assume they changed their mind on that (like everything else they announced back in May) but I just wanted clarification.
I know it's pretty superficial, but damn that strongly predominate green pretty much kills any good-looking cover art.
At least they don't have the whole top quarter of the box covered with their logo the way X360 does.
Not an appealing set of launch games.
It looks like they are not making the boxes look much different, let's hope the console itself will be much more different that the current console, only in a good way of course!
Even though I'm not buying an Xbox One I do like how they changed the disc cases. Much improved over the 360's
