from looking at it, ofcourse its half of the controller symbols. (triangle) (Circle) (X) (Square), with "welcome change" under them with the number 3 on the letter E in change. gonna be interesting is all i can say.

I cant wait to see the design. I still dont think they will top the design of the PS2 and "Two" though.

yeah the ps2 and pstwo were both really slick. sony lately has been putting out some very sexy/sleek designs (including the psp), hopefully they continue to do so.

and pray that the ps3 is not pink white and red like that billboard :p

Love that they brought back the red "e", That was the best slogan ever...

I personally did not like the ps2 design nor the xbox design or the gamecube design. I thought that neither of the 3 were very forward looking. The xbox360 design is rather interesting to say the least. I'm hoping that sony goes with the less living room entertainment center piece look and more with the forward looking space age aerodynamic look. A mini stealth bomber on steriods would be nice.

why would a console need to be aerodynamic? :X

The same reason a bottle of ketchup needs to be aerodynamic...

It doesn't, but it looks and feels better than a square bottle you put in your fridge sideways and stack things on.

I hope they don't go slick and shiny looking, I want it to blend in with the rest of my stuff on the entertainment unit. Thats one thing that really pisses me off about the Xbox 360, its going to look out of place and really stick out, the only thing it matches is my walls... my floor is brown and all my furniture is wood...

i dunno about that, i thought the ps2 and pstwo designs were pretty dang nice. a aerodynamic console just seems/sounds like wasted space to me.

it would probally still stick out like a sore thumb being that the rest of the console would STILL be white.

You say space age and didnt like the PS2's? Wow, They reaked space age to me. They look as if they were modeld from some SkyScrapers out of the future. My PS2, Dell LCD and Lian Li case are probably the the best looking equipment I have ever owned and I have alot.

To me the ps2 reminded me of a car stereo amp, an older earthquake to be exact.

Are you sure about that? I was under the impression that you could also get a skin for the rest of the Xbox 360 and not just the faceplate.

Wow, that makes me a lil excited. Can't wait to see the actual console in all its glory, plus some in game action!

From what I read it was only the faceplate since MS wouldn't want everyone taking apart the system and getting access to all the components inside...

Why would you have to open up the system to stick a skin on it?

How many people would want to put a sticker on there system? Also it looks like it has many small holes on top for air so a skin might be bad idea. I have no problems with the color but it should have been a more universal color. It has a great design but black with silver accents I think would have made it look better. Like egbtmagus the only think it really matches is my wall. :p

Still... I don't understand all the hate for the Xbox 360's color. The Xbox 360 is not the only system to be a color other than black. Hell, its not even the first to be white! Where was all the Dreamcast bashing for it being white? Same for the PS One.

Difference is the Dreamcast actually looked nice, it was just nice and simple, where here it seems like they tried way to hard at something.

They tried to make it to flashy in a way with the pearl white, the green button, and the curves it just doesn't look right.

Well one things for sure, it certainly would not be consider to "flashy". :rolleyes:

If only lian-li was to design the xbox case, then perhaps it would look nice, if you know what I mean. And maybe it's just me but the eject button doesn't look right of the new Xbox. Seriously I don't know what it is but the new Xbox doesn't look quite right, a bit way too thin, and other stuff. I don't understand why I can't like the way the new Xbox looks?

Yes but the XBox360 is not really just a gaming console like the DC. MS really is pushing the idea of it being a entertainment medium but it really doesnt match most peoples entertainment equipment or atleast mine.

That being said I just realized many new parts like Satellite boxes and new DVD players are coming only in a silver gray color so it may work. The trend it seems is moving away from black as being the choice color for entertainment equipment so MS might have thought about that color scheme more than we think.

Also these pics really do show off the color better so it may look better in person.
