Are the faceplates "custom" in the sense you can design your own or are we limited to the ones ms has?

paint and some creativity will allow you to create your own. There are already companies who plan to make replacements so it'll be easy to get ahold of one and expierement around with them

I think the face plates look pretty psychedelic...the ones that MS plan to release...

and I'm not too sure if the body is going to fit into the color scheme...

oh well...there are already pix in the xbox360.com website showcasing the customisable faceplates.

But I personally think that better designs can be had...

M$ should do what the skinning sites do and let you use a Photoshop template to make a custom design.

There was this G4 interview with J Allard and he said he's not gonna talk about it too much at this points and wants to keep it secret. Maybe we can design via "Marketplace" then the local company associated with M$ can print them out?!?! cool.gif

I can guarrantee you all that there will soon be a home kit that comes with a white faceplate, software, and printable stickers.

All you do is load the program, design your skin, print it on the large stickers, stick it on the face plate, apply face plate to console and you're done, like some iPod skin kits. And you'll be able to change them by just peeling off the sticker.

I am going to patent that right now.

Stickers will be the equivelent to skins... pure shit. Especially on a curved surface such ans the 360 faceplate. Imagine a home printed design (not rich in color) printed on a sticker that doesn't even cover the entire face (such as the current skins do) with a dark design with the white showing on the edges....... HIDEOUS I say... hideous. haha

I think that would be cool to be able to go online somehow and make your own. ..... Hmmmm maybe logitech might think of something like that... hey if they can do it for the PSP why not for the 360 laugh.gif
