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.

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.

Xbox 360 is nice and simple. What was it they tried to hard on?

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.

Okay so then by your logic the Xbox should of looked like this:



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

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?
