    Grey, the red/blue just look bad attached to the joycon grip and make no color sense

    Grey, as the red/blue joycons don't complement each other well (in my opinion).

    actually north korea. please send help
    Grey because having mismatching Joycons is weird imo.

    But if there was a console that came with green Joycons, that's what I'd get.

    I get your point, but we're referring to the joy-cons that come with the system,not the additional ones.

    Gray. The red and blue ones look hideous.

    How can people actually like the mismatch. Not even just the console, but the Joys themselves. Let alone the colors. I may have gone for a matching neon blue, but I prefer if it was darker blue.

    Pre ordered the grey as the neon Switch was not up on Amazon UK at the time for some reason.

    Grey. Will likely take paint or dyes better and not have red or blue bleed through.

    Alternatively make my own cases.

    Though more likely none at all as I am not feeling pointlessly flush and like my consoles to have games before I take the plunge.

    Red and Blue.

    When I saw these I finally saw something to get excited about. The endlessly boring dark greys / fake silver trim / thin-coated metallic paint & blacks that most people are conditioned on are stupid, I reckon. I've also never understood this need to have colours match. Flowers don't match the leaves. Teeth don't match our gums. Eyes don't match our hair. Give it a splash of colour. The Switch looks soooooo boring in its current boxy grey / black state. I'd love to see PSVITA slim colours reach the Switch one day (assuming it survives...).

    RED AND BLUE for the win.
    Long after the early adopter taxes disappear, of course.
    And assuming this is the actual colour of the plastics when moulded, not coated paint. If it's coated paint, forget the Switch entirely. Yes, that's how much I hate thin coatings of paint (that always wears away) on large areas of plastic.
