Wow, the Xbox One's Power Brick Is Massive

By Sam Gibbs on at

The Xbox One isn't exactly huge, which is good considering it's meant to fit in with a home cinema set-up and all, but Microsoft's seemingly achieved that by jettisoning all the power gubbins out of the main box and into one humungous power brick. Oh, and here's everything else you get in the box, courtesy of Xbox Live's boss, Larry Hryb.

To be fair, the Xbox 360's power block was equally massive, weighed a tonne, and got scorchingly hot, which is something Sony's PS3 never suffered from. Why Microsoft always insists on utilising such a huge PSU externally, I have no idea. I guess it's not really an issue, given it'll probably be hidden behind everything, but if you're tight on space, you might struggle to hide the hideous mass. [YouTube via TechRadar]
