T-shirt color matching the brand color. That's how you know Jeff is a professional.

What are the sticks like on this one? Really tempted by the Series S as a stopgap until I can afford a full PC rebuild. Hoping the sticks are a little closer to 360 feel - really didn't like how loose the Xbox one controller sticks were and how flimsy the controller felt.

Had two xbox one controllers break on me with light use - bumpers stopped working.

really wish these unboxings had jeff and brad's cam up at the same time, just think their innovative 2 unboxings at the same time would capitalize more from it

So is Xbox continuing with the accessible box design, ie easy pull tabs for one handed opening, similar from the packaging with the adaptive controller? Cool if they are, but I do also like the showiness of it.

Nice unboxings guys, thanks for the work.

Unfortunately for Brad, I don't think Joey is quite at the level of "That's not a knife. This is a knife" when compared to Jeff's butterfly knife from yesterday. I hope next unboxing starts with Jeff pulling out a machete or something.

Best box of 2020: vote now.

I'm voting for that box of hand sanitizer when things got really scary out there in March.

I really like the shape of this console compared to the PS5.

Unfortunately for me, the PS5 will probably have the exclusives I'll want to play.

The Series S is going to be really interesting to watch. I’m very curious how it is going to do during the lifespan of this generation performance-wise. I think the gap between the S and X is going to get bigger and bigger as the generation continues.

Watching Brad overthink opening the box gave me both a stupid silly grin and crippling anxiety.

I think I figured out why it feels like a fast food case, @brad

That Xbox Series S box looks EXACTLY like when you order catering from Panera. Like I half expected to see a bunch of bagged half sandwiches in there and a few cookies on the side. Anybody who works in an office in the US has probably seen that box at least once.

Their packaging design reminds me very much of MacBook packaging from over the years. I remember when I bought a Mac 10 years ago and the box was similar to what they did for these consoles.

That Series S is real tempting for someone like me still stuck on my original release PS4. As mentioned I do worry about the storage and cost of buying storage though.

Wow, the presentation in the packaging is really impressive.
