Here’s how the actual Xbox One game cases look like

Looks like they have used recycled Mountain Dew bottles.



Why so transparent?

Because there is no reason to have opaque plastic when it is covered by a piece of paper?

Also, I like the translucent plastic as it lets you see alternate cover art without having to pull it out of the case.

Some of them can be helpful! However it's mostly about collecting things for me, hehe. Just feels more complete.

Looks like Microsoft decided to have an empty space on top otherwise it'll look way to similar to the PS4 cases. I hope they'll forego the banner on the actual cover sheet because that's some stupid redundancy there on the placeholder cases:



Wonder how the "Platinum Hits' one will look like.

I think it'll depend on the developer, but you're right that a complete manual that's more than 2 pages are a dying breed. It's been like that the last couple of years, and I don't think that'll change going into the next gen (especially when digital media becomes more prominent and there's less of a focus on disc based media), which is a bit disappointing.

Agreed. Plus, usually only RPG's and GOTY editions have manuals.

Are manuals really that important? I can't remember the last time I used one.

I'll use on occasionally, but only if I return to a game and forget how to play.
I like how the GTAV one you can download onto iOS and android (I think), using the latest tech to their advantage.

OMG OMG OMG OMG that looks awesome! I like it much better than the bright green case that we were originally being shown (I'm assuming that was a doctored photo using the case from The Incredible Hulk.

The darker green doesn't bother me or make me excited in a perverted sexual way. Though that sexy polypropylene smell will when I sensuously tear off the plastic wrap with my teeth and slowly crack open those cases for that virgin day one disc smell ...

Sorry, what were we talking about?

---

As for manuals, I'd much rather see game publishers make Windows 8 apps that integrate with the game you're playing like the Machinima App we've seen. SNAP the manual app and it downloads the manual. That way, whether you buy the game digitally or physically, you can get access to the manual.

Looking good, now all we have to do is wait for the Sony fanboys to come over and say we copied the PS3 design.

Also the fact someone is selling one on eBay has me a little confused

Stupidly the One boxes will be the same colour as the new green on our dashboards, not sure why Microsoft decided to make the 360 dashboard use the colours of the One though.

As for manuals, they really need to be kept, or if not have an online version that is available during gameplay.

GTA V has those useless popup messages in the top left of the screen written in fonts that people who sit the normal distance from their TVs have problems reading. If GTA V had a decent manual I might not have wasted so long wondering how to do certian things in the game.

the ones on the ebay pictures look better than the ones OP put. they look more similar to xbox 360s, unless its just the camera, and why is there so many pictures of it!?

i suppose people will buy it, print off their cover art, stick it in and be like
"OMFG LOOK WHAT I GOT EARLY!!!"

No more need for 2 page manuals - they can just print them on the reverse side of the cover art!
