Unboxing Live 128: Exclusive! White Xbox One “I Made This” edition

We give you an exclusive look at the white Xbox One! Microsoft built about 3,000 of these unique "I Made This" edition of the Xbox One, and gave them out to employees who worked on the Xbox One prior to launch as a thank you gift. In the box is the white Xbox One, black Kinect, black standard controller, Day One edition achievement, and all the other stuff you'd expect. In addition, Microsoft gave a custom white "I Made This" controller for the Xbox One as well, which features a soft-touch feel rather than the solid matte black plastic feel of the controller.

Of course, we already gave you a look at the standard black Xbox One console as well.

You can pick up the Xbox One now from the following retailers:

Wii U unboxing

Nintendo's next big home console, the Wii U, is set to launch here in the US in a week-and-a-half on November 18. That's typically when we'd expect to see unboxing videos start appearing online, but Nintendo president Satoru Iwata took advantage of his position, getting the jump on everyone with a nice head start. We've got the video below, after the break, of Iwata unboxing the Wii U Deluxe Edition console, showing off the system hardware, GamePad, and all the packed-in accessories. Check it out, and let us know in the comments if you plan on picking up a Wii U for yourself!

Unboxing Live 070: OnLive Game System

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Video Games, Videocasts

In this episode we open up the OnLive Game System. If you are unfamiliar, OnLive offers streaming gaming, similar to the way Netflix offers streaming movies. You fire up the OnLive service on your PC, Mac, or on the Microconsole (featured in this video), choose a game you want to play, and it works on demand. The library of titles availabie is absolutely huge, and you can pretty much play them all for one fee. We give you a look at the OnLive Microconsole, as well as their wireless controller in this episode of Unboxing Live with Andru Edwards.

Unboxing Live 067: Astro Mixamp 5.8 and A30 headphones

In this episode we give you a look at the Astro Mixamp 5.8, the company's new accessory that allows up to four users to enjoy wireless 7.1 surround sound from their gaming console or PC. The cool thing about the Mixamp is that since it uses 5.8 GHz technology (rather than the overcrowded 2.4 GHz space,) you get nice, clear sound. This means that even late at night, you can mute your surround sound system and just have all the sound sent to the headphones - and it'll even do both game sounds as well as chat. Nice stuff!

Kinect sensor unboxing gallery

We got our hands on the Kinect sensor for Xbox 360 a day before launch, and we've been putting the motion gaming peripheral through its paces for the past five days now in preparation for our Kinect review. It'll be up later today, but in the meantime, we figured we'd share some unboxing shots of the Kinect unit. It's deceptively larger than it appears to be in product shots--it's a substantial piece of technology. It matches up perfectly with the redesigned Xbox 360 S model that was introduced back at E3 as well. Get a look at all the shots in our Kinect unboxing gallery.

Unboxing Live 059: Xbox 360 S

Microsoft announced the new Xbox 360 S last week at , and we were able to get our hands on one soon after to give you a look at all the goodness. As a refresher, the newly redesigned Xbox 360 is 35% thinner than the original, and features a glossy black exterior. It ships with a 250GB hard drive that’s been redesigned to fit into the new shape of the console, and it drops the memory card slots. Even better, it comes with built-in 802.11g/n Wi-Fi, so there is no need for any sort of external dongle accessory anymore. Hit the video for all the rest, but just know that you can pick up the new Xbox 360 now for $299.
