    Not too impressed with the current available colors but hoping some cool custom plates start popping up soon!

    Are you implying that Nintendo invented cover plates? I'm pretty sure you can thank Nokia for that.

    miss the old 360 faceplates. They were amazing. The PS4 faceplates are so damn bland.

    Away from this shithole
    This ad is awful.

    3DS faceplates work because it's a handheld. The thing is always in your pocket or in your hands and it's nice to see whatever color or skin you want them to be. It gives energy, just like any Nintendo handheld ad that was around the Gameboy/DS/3DS colors.
    Sony was able to catch the vibe of Nintendo's energetic new colors. Except... It's a damn HOME console. You don't have to watch your home console all the time. That's the controller. This is why there are more custom controllers than their home consoles.

    If you could switch out the whole console casing then maybe, but, no thanks.
