Do you like the next gen Box art?

PS5 is better 19 33.33%
 
XSX is better 16 28.07%
 
Both are meh.. 22 38.60%
 
Total:57

I still the PS5 box design is lazy and uninspired. But damn the Xbox version is just confusing. Can people buy that game and stick it in their Xbox One? Will publishers ship specific skus just for last gen Xbox One versions of games? It seems like a marketing nightmare.

Voted for both are meh. Blue and white on PS5 doesn't look good at all, while Xbox basically just reused their current cases and slapped an obnoxious gigantic "Optimized for Series X" badge on it. What a lazy offering from both. I wanted something like these:

At least the Xbox Series one will be decent once the cross-gen period ends and they can stop using the "Optimized for Series X" badge. PS5 one is always going to be ugly to me.

This book/manga look is much better than what both tried.

Why did Xbox keep the 360 logo all these years? If they are then I wish the box would look like PS4's but green to be similar to the 360. 360 pre redesign had the best boxes ever IMO.

They didn't. This is the 360 logo:

At the beginning of the gen they changed it to this, which has a whiter circle and slightly altered green "X":

Then recently they ditched green altogether (except on these cases for some reason), and changed to black and white:

I like the ps5 one for now cause the xbox one has too much going on.

Xbox
Xbox Series X . Xbox One X - 4k - HDR - Smart Delivery
Optimized for
Series X

It's a lot of info which is good for the consumer but it makes it look less clean compared to Ps5 which is essentially like. Ps5, take it or leave it. It reminds me of cars with a ton of bumper stickers.

I agree.  I find it funny how Sony's Playstation console names are very straight forward while Xbox can be a bit much for consumers, but yet Sony's mobile Xperia names are some of the most confusing product names in history.  I can imagine the upgraded PS5 to be called the PS5 II lol

And does the Xbox next gen box art looks exactly the same but all they did was took off the word 'one' from the green banner at the top?

The Xbox series X is going to confuse a lot of people.
MIcrosoft was lazy to change anything and will cause confusion. Sony changed something but it looks ugly.
Seems like the Switch will have the best box coming in the next few years.

I don't get some of you who says the Xbox case looks way better. It looks almost exactly the same as the Xbox One case. If PS5 had the exact case as the PS4, we would see some heavy critiques here to put it mildly.

I'm not trying to rag on the Xbox case, but it certainly doesn't look WAY better at all. I know tho....opinions and preferences.

I chose meh for both. But the white banner for the PS5 is just sooooo bad. Like very bad. Sony should have kept a different shade of blue if they are sticking with the sane blue case. In Xbox situation theres nothing ugly about it in terms of the use of colour. They effectively used both black and green nicely. Its just the confusion to the consumers is the bad thing about it.

That's like saying Apple Ditched the Apple logo or PlayStation ditched the PS logo when they didn't. Just recolored them. It's still the same logo. 360 is 360 degrees which goes around a sphere. 360. So yes they kep the 360 logo as the X is going around a sphere 360 degrees.



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Dont like the blue on the ps5 box art. It should be black and the xbox box art just look like the xb1 box art to me. Both are meh.



I like the Xbox one better, it is cleaner and more professional looking.
