Just was browsing some wholesale sites and have found Chinese wholesalers selling replacement casing for Xbox One



http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/12...ent_Shell.html



http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/12..._Xbox_One.html

How real are these likely to be? Are they the actual casings that are leaking out of the factories or are they going to be replica's based upon designs that are knocking around?

Hrm...probably knockoffs, yeah?

If not, can I pull a Radar O'Reilly and just make an XBox One?

Knockoffs or not it's surprising these are already hitting the market.

Also, at least they made the power brick stylish. lol

They might be "ghost shift" parts, often made by the same manufacturers, but paid under the table to produce pseudo-knockoffs with cheaper materials and/or slightly modified designs.

Were the size specs for the power brick ever released? I'm assuming that picture isn't to scale

I think it's this

So likely made to a lot of the same specs but with cheaper parts

Let me know if a Xbox one motherboard goes up for sale because that would be truly interesting

The box for this one looks like it says 130 watts DC, which fits with what we've heard so far.

You can judge the size from that IEC socket. It's freaking huge.

Pics of the shell look way nicer than other shots I've seen of the unit.

How long until someone starts assembling these and selling them on eBay as prerelease units?

It's about the same size as the power supply for the 360 S, which is 135W.

It's easier to manufacturer the console unit when the PSU is external.

It also means they can upgrade/refine the PSU in future shipping without redesigning any aspect of the console itself

They are very similar in overall size from the look of it, I wonder if the internals are the same?

Power supply is fake, the real one has the Xbox logo on it. That's not to say it isn't made to the same design and spec, though.

Oh, crazy. I was confused by the second picture showing a slope at the top front of the unit until I realized it was upside down.

I had no idea the bottom portion slanted inward. I just thought it was a big vcr brick.
