JFo Posted May 27, 2005 Report Share Posted May 27, 2005 E3 has come and gone, and we now know what the next generation is going to look like. Or at the very least, we know what it's going to look like sitting on our equipment racks. The designs for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Revolution have all been revealed, and with them a multitude of opinions on the designs of the systems themselves. Some like the way these new consoles look, but many more it seems think that the consoles are poorly designed or flat out ugly. My question is why? Why does it seem like the first reaction people have to seeing these designs is a negative one? I remember similar reactions to the PS2, Xbox, and GameCube when they were first unvieled, and it strikes me as odd that many hate the sleek designs of the new consoles. I guess I've always considered video game consoles to be ugly, so I'm happy when I see the sleekness of the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the simple, minimalist design of the Revolution. In my opinion, they're certainly an improvement over past designs because they look more sophisticated than the machines of old. My question is, what do you look for in a game console's looks? What colors do you like? What kind of shape? Do you like it to be rack mountable? How big should it be? What color lights should it have on the front? Not only that, but which consoles from the past do you think looked hot from a design standpoint? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
