Is white the new black? Again…

1 min read


When the Xbox 360 and Wii were announced we were in the midst of a white design phase with every electronic device worth it’s salt being available in white and I distinctly recall seeing some white HD TV’s which was something that thankfully never took off.

However the love of white has been dropping over recent years and now Nintendo has started releasing a black Wii and the new Xbox 360 is only available in black.

But it’s entirely possible that Nintendo and Microsoft have missed the boat again with Apple announcing it will be selling a white iPhone 4 and now Sony have released a white PS3 Slim.

Personally I really don’t care what colour the consoles come in but I guess if you are one of those people who really care about their gadgets matching then maybe getting a white iPhone and PS3 is just the thing you have been waiting for.

Oh and did I forget to mention that Sony have decided to 1up Microsoft once again by now releasing a 320Gb version of the PS3 slim?

    According to Kotaku one will be able to change the colors of the controller and the shells of the console. Not sure how it will affect us though?

    But will cost you a pretty penny!

    Will probably get this when my 60gb dies. I love white, I have a white DS3, and I skinned my PS3, so it has some white in it.

    320gb’s make sense in a PS3, not so much in a Xbox though. I just hope it’s gonna retail at the price of the current 250gb’s.

    White consoles will look really weird in my living room. The wife insists on earthy browns, orange and red, so a white PS3 or xbox 360 will stick out like a sore thumb, and I’d probably be relegated to the tiny, damp and cold spare room for my gaming needs. 🙁 Have a heart Sony.. think of poor Bobby Kotick (aka James Lenoir)…

    320 gb is a bit much, I mean the multimedia interface is not that great in the PS3 as you have to scroll through all of your content to find the picture, song, or video you want to see and if you have hundreds videos and pics and music. good luck finding the right one.

    And I know there are playlist that you can make but it’s besides the point. If song can make an update to have thumbnails like lists then that would be great for lots of media.
