Xbox One…No New Icon Logo For It?

A marketing problem can be seen with the upcoming Xbox One console: it has essentially the exact same logo for it as the Xbox 360.  Check out the 3 generations of Xbox’s and their logos:

1. original Xbox:

2. Xbox 360 (slightly changed text font, but logo is now a “360 degree” sphere):

3. Xbox One:

Anyone notice that IT”S THE SAME FUCKING LOGO AS THE 360?!? Same exact font (only switching the words “360” to “One”), and same icon except that the 360 sphere is a darker shade of grey.

I’m sure M$ wants to keep a unified look to play off the success of the Xbox 360, but it’s going to be harder for gamers to recognize both consoles and their games/peripherals etc. from each other (ie: in stores, magazines, on websites, and other media etc.). 

Look at the different PlayStation, Nintendo, and Sega consoles through the years, and each of their own consoles have very distinct logos from other.  Why not keep a default “xbox” logo (like PlayStation and Nintendo has) and use that logo alongside a unique logo for every console like every other major console maker does?

Oculus Rift beats Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in Game Critics E3 award

Virtual reality headset Oculus Rift has pipped both Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One to win the award for Best Hardware/Peripheral in the E3 2013 Game Critics Award.

While Microsoft and Sony were holding large press conferences for their latest consoles, E3 2013 also saw the first public demonstration of a 1080p version of Oculus Rift. The Razr Blade and Nvidia Shield were also nominated in the Best Hardware/Peripheral category.

OCULUS RIFT: The Future of Virtual Reality and Video Gaming!

Last fall I wrote the following:

"If somebody out there can make a completely amazing set of 3D virtual reality goggles for under $1000 that I can hook up to my Xbox 360 and play with Halo 4 etc. in 1080p I WILL TOTALLY BUY THEM! "

I’ve since been following the very possible realization of this dream of mine, an affordable set of 3D VR gaming goggles I can enjoy in the comfort of my home.  It’s name:  The Oculus Rift.

This technology has been hugely praised and supported by gaming design powerhouses like John Carmack, Gabe Newell, and Cliffy B.  The OR will very likely be supported by the Xbox One and PS4, as well as the PC of course.  IMO, the Oculus Rift is FAR more exciting than the new “been there, done that” next-gen consoles coming out, and will be there biggest revolution in video gaming since the Nintendo Wii controller.  One more small step towards the holodeck experience.  BELIEVE IT!
