LAN Party Special - This design is meant for ready mobility. With prominent handles on either side, it's can go at any moment. This is closest to the original Xbox console design, only with a smaller footprint.
Cronic Monophonic - Here I wanted to make something that hearkens back to art deco designs for radios. The style would be much more upscale than the previous Xbox, perhaps a mirrored stainless steel and glossy black veneer look. Essentially, I wanted this one to be very pretty, though thoroughly functional. Those concerned about ventilation need not worry, as a huge fan in back cools all inner workings. This time the handles are recessed and at the bottom.
Jellybean Jar - OK, this time I go for a bit more organic look. The profile may remind some of old Silicon Graphics O2 workstations, though it was really inspired by an In-Win design. The sliding drawer is replaced with a clamshell set at an angle on the leading edge. I imagine this version in many different colors, especially for the top piece.
Industrial Crate - Here we make the Xbox look exactly like it's namesake - a box with an X on it, from every angle. Once more, the sliding drawer is replaced, this time with a top loading mechanism. The sidemounted XBOX logos double as handles. Controller ports are aligned vertically on the front, while a single top button powers up the system and a push-click mechanism opens the drive bay.

Red Ronin's Xbox Controllers - The Xbox controllers are an excellent design, for both US and Japanese markets. I think they would be a bit more functional though if the buttons were arranged a little differently. So this is an example of how I would redesign them both.
