Exactly how does the amount of money they have have to do with the choice of color? Is there a certain financial level needed to use certain colors? rolleyes.gif

Personally I see nothing wrong with the red color. It fits in fine with the blood red theme of the Resident Evil series...but I guess someone with some childish need to phrase it as "microshit" would never think of that.

I personally like the new rs5 360, but if the rol was red too, it would of been an awesome add-on.
The red 360 with a green rol looks..nasty. if they did made the rol red, maybe they could of made the error lights orange or something.
Also, a black dvd bezel would of been over the roof!

They should've went with a darker red. If this type of red is the same as their controller they're selling, then yeah, it's not going to look good cosmetically IMO.

They are just standing on the sales desk to make this picture, by 03.12.09 they'll be on the real sales shelf.

I have seen so many different pictures of this thing. Some have black bezel and memory card doors, some have chrome bezel with grey doors. Either way, isn't it clear M$ doesnt care what the consumer wants, and if they do, their test market is very small and unreliable according to this forum.

If you whine alittle louder, maybe M $ will make a pink one to match your pink controller.

I haven't heard anyone crying about them not releasing the light blue controllers in the states, lets start a petition! sleeping.gif

While they could have come up with a better design I don't think the solution would be to have RESIDENT EVIL 5 written all over it "gangsta kiddy style". It's an Xbox not a resident evil box. I think they should have done something closer to the Halo 3 system in design with some more detail in it perhaps make it look like rotting flesh (without going overboard). I just don't like it when a system is branded for a specific game, it feels cheap. Instead of being the Halo system it's the Halo 3 system which just seems silly.

Actually you are right, I heard they accidentally packed all the boxes with the pink Hello Kitty system by mistake! =p

The case may not look the greatest color, but the packaging looks nice.

It probably would've looked better if they'd kept it mostly black, with maybe some red highlights, like a red drive tray and card slots, maybe some minor red "splatter" on the top of the case.

don't like it, don't buy it.
instead of being yet another bandwagonner who has to feign coolness by using bs like "microshit"


as for those whining about chrome dvd bezels: if you really don't like it, just spray-paint the darn things to a colour you do like.
