    Honestly... I like the way it looks, it looks funky in a fun way, I was interested in this console when I first heard about it because of what it can do with VR, and I know Rich is right in terms of why not just get a P.C. but there is just something about consoles that I love... anyway, I like the design and would get the one with the pink neon lighting. I am going to keep an eye out for this console and if all goes well, I will be purchasing one. Thanks for reading guys 👍🏻

    It actually looks cool. Looks just a pc tower. He's only bashing it and saying exactly what other gamers said already. Everytime he puts out a review he copies exactly what everyone else is saying. He can't think for him self he just jocks others content...

    Why you so mean to the Mad Box, give it a chance people. I mean this may inspire other companies to make consoles, so that the console market isn't an oligopoly anymore.

  • Jayme Thysell

    I like it. If it wasn't ugly and didn't have a terrible name, I wouldn't even notice it in the market. I say make it as ridiculous and gaudy as possible.

    I would be more concern about what the console is capable of.. Instead of worrying about how ugly it is or how stupid the name is! I mean isn’t that what most gamers want? Like who buys consoles just to put it next to their TV and impress friends anyways? Idk about you but I bought mine to play games with!

    I think it looks pretty cool, it resembles a custom PC build. If it performs like an expensive PC, I'm fine with it.

    I dont like the m curves but I like the idea of the neon and different colors. If this is a powerful Steam box I'll def get one.

    I like the glow around the front but the 'legs' / stand looks goofy personally either go with a square like shape or slightly curved without the legs / stand or offer the stand as an attachment kinda like old school PS2 & PS3s did with the vertical stand mount or whatever it was called. But the name must go

    What a stupid looking design. Those wide legs take up desk space unnecessarily. It sits like al bundy with its legs spread open.

    The design is bad, but it not targetting 40yrs gamers. It's for the kids watching Ninja who are becoming the new markettng target.

    Lmao change the neon color to yellow and we got the future of McDonalds. But all seriousness that’s how u grab attention when you’re doing something new. It doesn’t look anything like the others. And they are trying to run computer specs so it’s shaped like a tower. This is what makes a console different. The shape. Looks cool to me tho.

    I know they want to have the word MAD in it because of the studio name but it just doesn't fit with anything and you can't design anything cool with it either. Just get rid of it! Only Nintendo has their actual name on the console but it's a cool name from the start.

  • eye776
    eye776 10 days ago

    The name madbox sounds as silly as Xbox did in 2001.
    The games will make or break it. Also it looks like just a branded PC which is a lot worse than the name.

    Omg ive been click bated. He said that there is a playstatin 5 and an xbox 2. BUT THERE ISNT. Also you cant get that many fps, as the human eye can only see 60 fps at max, and that is if you have glasses. And peeple saying that it is a computer are realy dumb. It is a console. Thos pc plebs dont deserve fame for the great creation that microsof and sony brot to us. Nobody even needs a pc. All the good games can be made on a console NO PROBLEM.

    Competition in the console market is welcome, but these guys can barely make Project Cars work (still buggy & laggy on AMD in 2019). I wouldn't hold my breath about them making a console, frankly.

  • tech3475
    tech3475 11 days ago

    They need some kind of USP, besides being potentially fugly.
    I’ve even bought ‘inferior’ consoles in the past because they had other features which made them useful eg. PS3 super slim and Xbone S because of their BD/UHD media capabilities.

    Honestly - I'd be lying if I said my initial reaction wasn't "aww I kinda want one". Its one of those "it's so ugly its cute" kinda things - only I don't find it to be as ugly as I'm sure some do xD Like I appreciate the odd look and the not overbearing RBG lighting and I love the little... dog? monster? thing that's on the side of it xD I would legitimately not hate this as like a small desktop case. It'd give my desk some extra pizazz xD

    The PS5 will probably look like a Wrigley's 5 peppermint cobalt gum box and it'll still look better than the mad box.
