Think the Xbox One Is Big? Its Power Supply is External Again… and it’s Massive

When I first laid eyes on Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One console, I thought to myself two things. First, “ohhh shiny, that’s sexy” and then “damn, where am I going to fit that thing, it’s humungous!” Although I had my reservations, I remained optimistic that it may very well mean that the engineers at Xbox HQ may have finally figured out a way to tuck away that unsightly external power supply from the Xbox 360 that has haunted the space behind TV stands throughout the world.

And boy was I wrong.

Today, Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb posted up the first (and official) Xbox One unboxing video, giving us all a preview of what to expect when popping open a day one console bundle. And while most of the add-ons are nice, the massive power supply is a reminder that this is very much an Xbox.

Now, it’s all I can see.

If you’ll excuse me, I have to figure out where I’m going to hide that monstrosity. Check out the full Xbox One unboxing video here.
