Also check out these faces which those in the UK can vote for. I starting to thing this was a great idea by MS and now we know why they chose the color they did...so we would buy faces for it. Aluminum gets my vote.:cool:

Wow, thought it would be a bit larger than the original XBOX. I don't really care for the whole faceplate deal myself. Almost any color wouldn't match with the white XBOX console.

i actually like the faceplate idea, but i dont like that its only avaliable for the front of the xbox. so if you get like a multi-colored faceplate that looks nice or whatever, the rest of the console is still white :x

It's an XBOX not an IMAC Microsoft! What's next, "Yum." billboards?

I went with Midnight Blue. Aluminum is too close to what the console comes with stock.

360 dimensions...
The Xbоx 360 weights 7.7 pounds (3.5 kg) and is:
309 mm wide x 83 mm high x 258 mm deep
12.15 in wide x 3.27 in high x 10.15 in deep


The Xbоx weight 8.8 pounds (4 kg) and is:
320 mm wide x 101 mm high x 260 mm deep
12.6 in wide x 4 in high x 10.2 in deep
biggest difference seems to be the weight, the size is pretty much the same minus a few cm.

no black?
Hopefully they'll eventually provide it in black. White is going to stick out like sore thumb considering all my other stuff is black/charcoal grey.

Edit: Maybe the aluminium wouldn't look too bad though.

but even if they have a black face plate, the rest of the console is still white!

if i i get a 360 i just might have to mod it up :P i think it would look pretty pimp being all black, silver cd tray, and a modded blue power button :p

I'm 100% sure that other companies besides Microsoft will make faceplates

I don't think Microsoft plans to make huge profit off these. They have this idea to sell more consoles. So if other companies can come out with plates that are popular and sell well, then Microsoft will allow it for sure
