Packaging of Xbox One’s Controller, Headset And Play and Charge Kit Revealed, it’s Very Green

Today GAME Employees from all over the UK scrambled to tweet pictures of the new dummy PS4 units they received for display purposes, but the picture tweeted by an employee of the Basildon storeย is quite different.

It still shows the dummy PS4, but what is surrounding it is even more interesting (at least considering that we saw plenty dummy PS4s for today). Not only we see a pile of Xbox One boxes, but also the packaging for the Xbox One controller, the chat headset, the play and charge kit and the bundle with the controller and the play and charge kit in the same box.

As you probably imagined, there’s a whole lot of green involved. You can check out the full picture below.

    That ps4 is there to hold the weight of the entire wall. Lol. Just like my ps3 holds my windows in the summer. At least is good for something. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Lmfao . Amazing how that ugly piece of plastic ps3.5 make trolls act. Lol

    • Bristow9091

      My PS3 weighs less than my 360, and the PS4 weighs less than the One… what are you trying to say here? I don’ get it o.O

  • Sheldon Prescott

    This isn’t a big deal, but I thought the X1 box was black. What happened to that? I liked it.

    • Ed

      the “day one edition” boxes are supposed to be black.

  • RealityCheck2013

    It’s soooooooooooooo SAD that Microsoft can’t even put the words ‘Microsoft’ on the Xbox ONE(& 360 to) boxes. They must know that word = CR*P LoL:D

    • RealityDiscountDoubleCheck2013

      ha ha, ha ha. See, now that you spewed your Microsoft hate, your goth/emo girlfriend might actually give you some.

      Wait until you grow up and leave the nest. Microsoft rules the business world with their products, whether you like it or not.

      Go back to Subway and stay there. Dream about your PS4 and all the games you won’t play because you’re too busy trying to support the PS4 in comments sections.

    • Looks at Reality Checks avatar…. doesn’t take the bait.

    The packaging is awful. The Dreamcast (in the UK) had awful packaging, but this is even worse. But I suppose it’s all down to what’s in the box. I wouldn’t turn down an Xbox One, even if a came in a pink box or no box.

    • Mildra

      out of curiousity, any images of said UK packaging for the dreamcast? (for comparison’s sake)

      • PatcherStation

        Google European Dreamcast, then click on images. Or Google European Dreamcast box.

    • I quite liked the dreamcast packaging? I dont like the x1 boxes though, ive never really liked the greens theyve used for the xbox brand, and this looks even more garish.

    • Stryfe880

      there was a game called Shenmue on dreamcast that I loved,part 2 was on the first Xbox, I beat them both and then there was supposed to be a 3rd one where you fight the main bad guy and the series got shelved!!

  • HalfBlackCanadian

    Compared to the PS4 packaging this is ugly as hell. I have nothing against purely recyclable packaging, but these just don’t look appealing.

    Glad I’ve pre-ordered a Day One edition…

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      yeah, the day one packaging looks a hell of a lot better. No doubt.

    • Rocco

      I Agree, though what’s inside the packaging is what counts.

    • I too have the beautiful Day One edition ordered. It’s like having a lightsaber over a blaster.

    • Stryfe880

      me too!!…and you get the cool black box!!

    • Garth McGillicuddy

      I agree that the packaging isn’t great, and i too have the day one coming to me..but who really cares. While sure the packaging of either console could attract/detract buyers once on the shelf, im sure each company did their research. I know that as far as im concerned, they could wrap it in just about anything and i would not care one bit (as long as it isn’t made from puppy skin). My point here is that the aesthetics of the boxes and even the consoles themselves shouldn’t mean much to anyone. The xbox one might be bigger or squarer but who cares? under a TV it likely won’t look half bad, and who’s really paying attention anyway

  • Abort Mission

    Aww, it looks like an Xbox fanboy is thumbing down people’s comments for simply NOT LIKING THE DESIGN OF A BOX Lmfao.

    It’s probably Zohak the crybaby Xbot Lol

  • Larry Skells

    Adbox One is a POS console!

    • TheScienceEnthusiast1130


  • JS100

    All you people arguing about which console is better sound like idiotic babies. I plan to get both when I can afford to, because I am a gamer, not a fanboy. That being said, The reason I wanted to post was because I was thinking the packaging (the poin t of the article, in case no one noticed) looks more like dummy boxes. surely they wouldnt be that poorly designed for real? Thoughts (On the article subject)?

    • Bristow9091

      Am I allowed to say I think the PS4 will be better because most of my favourite IP’s are owned by Sony and I’d rather play them than most Microsoft IP’s?

      I mean sure, I’m getting both since there’s games I’d love to play like Dead Rising 3 (HUGE Dead Rising fan), and Ryse could be interesting after a price drop… but I still think the PS4 will be better (for me personally)… ๐Ÿ˜›

      Also, that IS the real packaging design, pretty boring, but I usually throw the box away once I open it up and take what’s inside anyways, except the console box… got to keep that!

      • JS100

        Opinions are opinions and everyones entitled to them. I prefer 360 over PS3, and Im getting the X1 first. But I wont know which I like better until I get a PS4 next year. But there are games i am dying for on both systems.

        I agree about the packaging. I will tear my items out and throw them out either way. They may as well come in a thin plastic bag like mixed lollies ๐Ÿ˜›

  • The-Master

    Is the PS4 supposed to act as an Xbox One display demo or something?

    • Bristow9091

      Did you see how Microsoft were advertising PS4 games as One games? (They put Killzone Shadowfall down as a One exclusive)… well yeah, Microsoft have bad marketing people who don’t know the difference between the consoles as well as the games ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Daniel Lawson

        Sony has show Xbox games at their E3 press conference before… it happens

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    Green has always been Microsoft’s signature color. Don’t see that changing anytime soon unless whatever new CEO replaces Steve Ballmer alters that for later gens, if and when the Xbox brand is surely still around by then.

    • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

      Recognize the color of the “Luigi” emblem?


      • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

        Yeah I know. Hey u changed ur pic again. Now it’s Wario.

    • PatcherStation

      The colour of the boxes, it looks like they’re selling garden products like grass seed or slug killer.

      • You are flat out wrong

        Certainly a fitting association with the Xbone. ๐Ÿ˜ก

        • TheScienceEnthusiast1130


  • DOOM

    Looks awesome!!!

  • Ritsujun

    Teh gross green.

  • phillip

    • You are flat out wrong

      Those will be what the Xbone will be sitting on for the next seven years! Xbone has no games! ^_^

  • You are flat out wrong

    All that puke green. Anyone walking in to get it will take one glance and move swiftly to the PS4s.

  • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

    IT IS “Green”!!!!
    Like “Luigi”!!!!

  • dirkradke

    So does the PS4 in the photo secretly want to be an X-Box One or is it just slumming?

  • watzcoc

    the PS4 looks like a plastic cheap toy lol

  • Steven

    Last chance to wake up and realize buying consoles is the most
    stupidest thing you can do. PC > all ffs. At very least, you can play flash
    games to chill out :S for example like
    me having fun with scary maze game at
    lol. Anyway, Consoles suck. All you need is a new VGA in every 7-8 year, like
    letโ€™s say you get – i7 Ivy Bridge CPU; 16GB RAM; 256GB SSD / 1TB HDD and GTX
    780. All you have to upgrade in 5-6 years is a VGA.

    • themuIe

      PC has no games. End of discussion.

      • Steven

        GTA V late for PC, what else? name a console name that you cannot play on PC?

        • themuIe

          Every single Sony Worldwide Studios game and hundreds of Japanese games including all Nintendo games.

  • xXSoulEater10Xx

    What happened to the box that Major Nelson did an unboxing for? It was black and it looked better.

    • You are flat out wrong

      It was all a lie. That’s what Larry is good at.

    • Langkasuka

      I think black colour is the Day One launch edition box. I don’t mind the box colour that much, but I remember some news how people who queued for hours at stores to get a Wii U launch or new iPhone off-the-shelf and got robbed at knifepoint on their way home. I just thought the green is very bright.
