Almost a year after the console’s unveiling, the retail box that the next-gen Xbox Series X will be shipped in has been revealed. Best Buy Canada’s Jon Scarr grabbed a photo of the cardboard container and tweeted it online.
As seen above, the box is constructed from cutting-edge heavy-duty paper products and features photorealistic images printed onto its frame. Compared to previous boxes that Xbox consoles shipped in, it’s also a more subdued design.
On the box, the Xbox Series X’s square design and the ventilated cover are shown off, while also reminding consumers that it has a 1TB solid-state drive and games can run at 120 FPS on it at a 4K resolution.
Compared to the original Xbox One retail box from 2014, which was very, very green, the design is far more subtle.
It still has a splash of green on the bottom of the box, which also contains a few paragraphs of fine text. The design is reminiscent of the Xbox One X and the original Xbox console retail boxes, which used cleaner graphic design to stand out on store shelves when they were released.
