Xbox One designers don't talk about flaws in Xbox One

Promotional video discusses design features of new gaming console

With last week's Xbox One gaming console reveal still fresh in people's memories, the folks at Microsoft are continuing to churn out videos discussing the new gaming platform.

Unfortunately, we don't get any more details about pricing, availability or whether you'll be able to play used games. Instead, take this journey into the design of the new console, including why they chose "liquid black" as the main color (which reminds me of a great quote from "This is Spinal Tap"), and why the box is rectangular.

Interestingly, the YouTube video's comments are disabled, likely because they don't want anyone to ask questions about pricing, availability and the used games issue. But hey, at least the trigger buttons on the new controller conform to my fingers! Woot!

And also, "None more black."
