We received a lot of information about Xbox Series X during its deep dive last week, and here's something else we found out - exactly why the console resembles a fridge. Ultimately, it was created in such a strange shape due to how the internal components fit together in a "really unique way".
This was shared by Xbox Series X principal designer Chris Kujawski during Austin Evans hands-on with the system, where he commented it was built that way for a good reason:
"I mean, you put the box together, you can see how all of those big components kind of fit together in this really unique way, and it's all driven by pulling air through the system with this big axial fan on the top."
Kujawski also commented on the design potentially causing problems in terms of fitting on shelves and under TVs, noting that the console can be used vertically or sideways, and that it has a "really small footprint". Microsoft hasn't been shy about commenting on the fridge-like design of the system either - in fact, it's been making jokes about it.
