Default XBox and XBox360 side-by-side & UK faceplates


http://www.joystiq.com/entry/1234000900045546

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.

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...
Quote:
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.

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
