Wheres the fucking color?
I can't be the only person left in the world whose bugged by consoles being dominated by black and grey shells. Even the original Xbox had a nice splash of color with the green circle, and psx was a nice standout grey and logo, ps2 had a lesser blue logo even.
Now the only colors in the game market I can think of is the 3DS (Even though those are usually half black) and switch controllers (While the buttons and screen are black).
Can't remember the last time I saw something like a colored cartridge, think it might've been pokemon emerald on the gameboy. That shit I really miss, when a game had a non standard color you knew you were in for a time.

Why the fuck did this happen?

I just want some decorations. Everything nowadays is black by default and its depressing. Because oh boy my black console looks great next to my black cable box, black frame TV, black computer tower, and black VHS player.
Vita I honestly forgot existed, but ps4 I got tricked by a lot of the images I found being 'What if's. Though I'm noticing now most the ones I can find for sale either look like a bit of a clusterfuck or dirty like that.
These two are about the most appealing ones I can find, but fucking props for them going more creative with the colors.

Consoles are mainly marketed to young (or not so young, 30 or so) adults. They have to be grey or black and blend in the furniture, so that customers will not be reminded they are buying toys.

Well its related if anything to the consoles, but to an extent the presentation. Sort of like how a tasty slop isn't exactly as good as a well presented meal, just not quite as potent.
Like I said when you had a colored cartridge you knew you were in for a time, especially if it wasn't pokemon.
Like I remember my system as a kid was:
Grey means its good, but gonna be a bit dry
Black means its gonna be unique or have a twist
Crystal means its a fucking wild card

I remember the 00s being the white generation because it was the popular thing for machines to be white with roundish edges aside from Nintendo's more colorful cube consoles up until the wii. 10s was the black generation where it's the popular thing for machines to be black and angular.

I remember that being a late 90's thing. In the early 00's, it was about black with sharp angles. Not going to post a pic of NGC, because obviously cubes have sharp angles. PSOne did come out in 00, but I think it was purposely rounded to give it a more 90's look to visually reinforce that it was a last-gen console.

To note: The Xbox 360's design was concave specifically to get away from the "Box" and hard angle asthetic, and to make it look slimmer since one of the major complaints about the Xbox was that it was just a huge ugly black brick.

Ethan Cruz
Ethan Cruz

It had to do with the trend of making electronics sleeker and more "adult." Video games were no longer marketed exclusively towards kids/teens and apparently being colorful was "kiddie." It's even in graphic design, look at how everything is becoming retardedly simplistic. Nothing has style anymore. Because smooth and shiny is how you appeal to the largest amount of people. And to a lesser extent, it also has to do with color theory and how black goes with everything. Sometimes an oddly shaped box can look ugly and stick out if it doesn't match the color/theme of where ever you've placed it. And to be fair, both the NES and SNES came in a boring gray, but I guess you could argue against that saying they at least had splashes of color in places. Color honestly doesn't matter a whole lot to me.

Those are all teenager bait.

The RGB meme can look interesting if it's not just exuding rainbow vomit.

We've had LED strips for a long time and before LED strips there were cathodes. LED fans have been around for ages too. RGB is just a means to make the LEDs whatever the fuck color you want instead of being limited to a handful of choices. Before there were a few LED colors that were popular enough to be used in large quantities and anyone investing in purple for instance would be losing money since more fags were buying the standard red or blue.

Who new PCfags would want to have settings for LEDs that didn't amount to "Graphics: ON/OFF"? People like to rag on RGB but case lighting has been around for ages and at least RGB gives more than the shitty handful of options there were in the past.

Transparent consoles only look good if they're passively cooled, or if they're never used. Otherwise, they're a fucking mess to keep clean and well maintenanced to maintain that look. Most console manufacturers don't want the headache of fielding a shit-ton of support calls from idiots who opened up their systems to clean them and broke something - nor do they want cumsumers to get the idea that opening up their systems and tinkering is an acceptable activity.

And yeah, I agree with - transparent consoles look gaudy and unaesthetic as fuck anyhow.
