Here’s How the Xbox One Could Look in 26 Beautiful Colors

Yesterday we ran a little experiment, showing you how the PS4 could look in several different colors. Today it’s time to jump to the other side of the next generation console war, and turn the Xbox One from a black monolith into a much more colorful one.

After all Microsoft employees are receiving an absolutely lovely white unit, so there’s no reason to think that Microsoft can’t or won’t produce more colors down the line.

That’s why I picked up Photoshop, the official stock picture of the Xbox One, its Controllers and Kinect, and allowed my imagination to run semi-free, in order to see how it would look in several different and beautiful colors (including four metallic ones: silver, gold, gun metal and bronze).

For the different colors I followed strictly the color scheme used by Microsoft on the white unit, assuming that the Xbox One will be recolored in the same way in the future. That’s why Kinect is still mostly black (the only recolored part are the side vents), and the controller still features black parts. It looks a lot better like that anyway.

So, without further ado, I leave you with the colorful Xbox Ones, including a few theoretical special editions for Halo, Ryse: Son of Rome, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Forza Motorsport 5. Which one do you like the most? Or maybe you still prefer the classic black unit?

Disclaimer: Remember that none of the pictures displayed below is in any way official or officially endorsed by Microsoft. They’re just a simulation of what the Xbox One could look like painted in those colors.
