The V shaped thing makes more sense, imo.
Theres a style & design choice around it, while still being heavily focused on cooling.
Basically Xbox series X design is around a gigantic Cooling Fan.
This is true of course, I was joking from an esthetical perspective though.
The V-shaped thing is a DEV-KIT, why can't people understand what that implies?
A Dev-kit does NOT need to look sexy or good, it's a professional piece of hardware for people to work on. Looks are irrelevant in that context.
Yet people lose their minds on the internet, and go: "OMG if that's what the final product is going to look like, it's the end of the world..."
No lady, no sir, when is a Dev-kit ever the same as the final product? It never is, obviously. So why are people talking about a working piece of hardware as if it were the actual retail thing?
I know the V-shape is a devkit. You can relax.
