Designing the X-Box

"Carl Ledbetter led the team that designed Microsoft's latest games console. But how did he set out to create a games machine? And did he mean the new Kinect to look like a smiling face?"

Very few technical details, but still nice to skim.

That was a good read. I really enjoy reading game developer diaries as well. Did anyone else subscribe to Game Developer Magazine? I don't think they print anymore but it was always a fun read. Gamasutra.com is their web presence if anyone else is interested in similar tales.

So this is the guy responsible for designing the ugliest console to ever see the light of day? What did he look at a VCR from the early 80's and say make it just like that?
