the face plates that i got when i purchased my 360 were just a peice of paper sandwitched between two peices of plastic.

it would be nice if they were printed, they would be better then

The only one I've seen that I liked was that chrome one. I really like the look of it attached to a 360 with the Black Knight case.

Why is it that the Japense market always get the better stuff? I mean have you seen some of the Jap. (no disrepect) faceplates. I mean wow. Not I gotta shell out 30+ for a peice of plastic. sad.gif sad.gif

I guess M$ dry.gif has another sucker, me.

All the ms faceplates are just plain bad in my opinion, the only faceplate I have seen and liked so far was the chrome one witch i bought for 35 cad. Money-wise good and looks EXCELLENT!

Yes, I must say.. the XCM chrome faceplates are absolutely gorgeous.. I love mine smile.gif

I personally like the translucent Xtender ones as well (So far I've had a red, a blue, and a green on mine).. They look a lot better in person than they do from pictures and while they might not suit everyone's taste, I personally like em. I haven't seen any m$ or other 3rd party faceplates that catch my fancy (other than the few specialty ones tehy made...), though I definitely need to get a custom airbrushed one made up at some point.

In any event, I like the idea of being able to change the whole identity of my console by just swapping out the faceplate. Granted, it is only the front.. but that's also the only part I ever see. Just my 2 biggrin.gif

I think they're okay, I guess. I've got a few faceplates from Zero Hour, and they're cool. I wouldn't buy a retail faceplate; it's only the limited faceplates that are worth having. Although, those chrome ones look shiny and neat.

Most of the face plates suck. Chrome looks good, but it isn't very imaginative. I'd expect these faceplates to get pretty crazy eventually.

I bet someone will find a way to make a face plate light up nicely with different color superbright LEDs. Even that isn't too imaginative but it takes a lot more work than making a mold and slapping a color or pattern on it.

Faceplates blow. If you're gonna make something your own you wanna make it full blown LED's cathodes and other cool shit. Fuck a faceplate. I'd rather get myself a custom printed skin.

I don't see the point of changing just the front of the console. I'd rather just keep the whole thing white.
