Would you like to see different coloured Series X or S consoles?

Recommended Posts

Something I have often pondered is what if the Xbox Series X or S was released in different colors rather than just the standard white and black colour that it is? What if you could choose the colour you wanted? What colour would you go for? I personally would go for a purple colour if the option was there as I feel that would be cool and unique. I know this is never going to happen but it is something that I had been thinking about, seemed an interesting topic.

There is inevitably going to be Xbox Series consoles that are limited editions with special decals inspired by a certain game or sponsorships, especially it its a completion prize r something. Here is one I just found;

There cool and all, but it's not something I'd say is strictly necessary for me. I do actually have a Star Wars themed PS4 Pro, but that's only because my PS4 waved a little white flag and died and that was the best I could find as a replacement.

 

EDIT: I just realised this "Celtic Console" isn't actually a console, it's removable decals, but still.

I think there's been a few special edition releases of the Xbox Series X. I think most consoles come out with limited/special edition consoles, with differing designs. I think Halo Infinite had a special console, way before the game was even released. I believe there's a Forza themed one, and I don't recall, but maybe a Gears themed one. Not sure though, as I don't remember if we got a new Gears on the new Xbox yet. 

But yeah, most consoles release special edition consoles. I don't know if Microsoft will release one for all colors of the rainbow, but I'm sure we'll see some branded designs based off of their popular games.

Pope on Twitter does a lot of cool mock-ups of different color schemes for consoles & controllers. I would love to see the Series X & S consoles be put in the design lab and customiziable like the Elite Series 2 controllers are now. A custom console to go with your custom elite controller? That'd be awesome! I would imagine it'd be very, very expensive though.

Definitely, the more options the merrier. 🙂 

I agree. At the moment you only have the black for the Series X and the white for the Series S but having different colors would be awesome to see. I would imagine it is possible for Microsoft and Xbox to do it but would be quite time consuming which is probably why it hasn't been chosen as an option.

I wish video game consoles released translucent consoles & peripherals again. I miss the days of the see through consoles and handhelds. Now days I don't feel like they make an attempt to make consoles different like this anymore. The skins and styles I see for the most part don't really do anything fun with the design. idk, maybe it's just me, but I think most new consoles and devices get lazy with the creative design and look.

Yes! I remember seeing consoles like this and it's something I miss. You never see it anymore which is a shame. It was something that was different compared to what we see now. It's a shame they don't take the time to design consoles or handhelds like this now, I can only imagine how popular they would be if they were still available. They seem to put so much effort now into what is in the console that the design of the outside just ends up being basic.

It's sad not seeing consoles or other devices like that again. But I guess the main thing about it was that it wasn't adult friendly if that makes sense. I think it's because it looks too kid friendly, or childish, that adults didn't have any interest in it back then, while us kids loved the hell out of those translucent consoles. 

I think it's the aesthetic of it, in that adults aren't interested in having a colorful console sitting next to their VHS player back in the day, or looking like some giant popsicle on ones entertainment center. 

Now days I think nostalgia has set in, and people are taking interest in these old style designs again. I wonder if one day we'll see a resurgence of translucent cases/devices.
