Check out this design inspired by Xbox fans across the globe. Detailed concept designed and created by Danny Haymond.
XBox 2 - in Black
Our first image here is a sleek concept of the Xbox 2 with a classic Xbox One controller. This is no mistake my friends as Microsoft has confirmed that all of your Xbox One games and accessories will indeed work on the new console. The design of the box is an evolution of what we've seen in the Xbox One S which brought down the size and cleaned up the look.
Here that designed is furthered with a sleek exterior and plenty of ventilation for the massive horsepower Microsoft is going to put inside this new box. Microsoft has learned their lesson when it comes to console that overheat (we won't mention the Red Ring debacle or anything), so as the hardware improves they are being more conscious of the ventilation they provide to ensure nothing overheats.
It's more than likely that the LED lights on the front will turn on when the system boots and then fade. This will add style without being distracting during gameplay. While this concept includes the classic controller, it's also safe to assume that the XBox 2 will receive its own controllers or an updated version of the elite customizable controllers.
Xbox 2 in White With Inputs Labeled
It's more than likely that Xbox 2 will come in more than one color. Once again, this is based on Microsoft's new options for both Xbox One S and the various models we've seen of the original Xbox One. As you can see, the system has four USB 3.0 slots for all of your accessories.
Further more, the back of the system has optical audio, high speed HDMI and auxillary ports. We know that the Xbox 2 will also support some sort of high-fidelity VR. We believe this will be the Oculus Rift VR headset. You'll alo notice the peculiar disc in the upper left corner. This is a concept of a Holographic Versatile Disc or HVD. Using a green laser for reading and writing, and a red laser for position and addressing, this type of future disc has a capacity of up to 6TB!
XBox 2 - in White With Matching Controller
The specs of the Xbox 2 are going to be massive. We're expecting an AMD Polaris solution with 6 TFLOPS of processing power, combined with up to 12GB of high speed RAM with a 320GB/s bandwidth. All of this is going to power both VR and 4K gaming experiences.
XBox 2 - With Classic White Controller
The Xbox 2 has a release date of holiday 2017. Microsoft is hoping that the arrival of this console will signal an end to traditional console cycles. They wish to keep everything compatible so you can move forward with your library of games and your accessories.
This will also allow them to start releases more iterations of their consoles throughout a lifespan, thereby improving upon the hardware and keeping up with the PC industry.

Here we have a nice and close view of the Xbox 2 concept. Carefully placed LED lights add to the console's visual appeal without distracting from the experience. What do you think of these designs? Are you going to purchase Xbox 2 when it releases? Let us know in the comments!
