Since the Mad Box seems to be a real thing now, we might as well resign ourselves to getting news about it on a persistent basis. While we have had a look at some concept renders for what the final console might look like when it launches a few years from now, now we apparently know what the final design will be like when it launches, thanks to Slightly Mad Studios’ CEO Ian Bell sharing some pictures on Twitter.
It looks… interesting. It basically looks like a Razer PC, but there are some interesting ideas on there, such as the display screen that shows you what game you are currently playing (this is information you need, because you wouldn’t know otherwise), as well as any current notifications. Look, I said the ideas are interesting, not that they are good.
That aside, apparently the console can be placed in a vertical and a horizontal position, can be wall mounted, and can be customized in a multitude of ways. As I said, assuming it’s real, I’m sure there will be a lot of takers for some of its more unique ideas.
The public have spoken and we’ve listened. This is the design we’re going with. It might be slightly amended over time… Thanks all for your responses which have helped to guide us. pic.twitter.com/3dadUkz4Ue
