The US is uglier than the European console, but it had the better games
Honestly I am going to assume anyone voting for the American version uses light theme.
That looks like some sort of evil robot face and the controller looks like it is covered in Parma Violets.
I know this is the Mini, but the design's still the same. Over the years I've seen people mock this design for being somehow uglier than the European SNES, and I really don't understand how this nking like this is possible, the EU one isn't bad, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't have a fraction of the attitude the American SNES has.
The strong purple color, concave buttons, the blocky look of it... it's a fantastic console in terms of aesthetics imo. The EU SNES on the other hand kinda lacks charm. The 4 colors are no doubt iconic, but it just doesn't scream "console" to me and as good looking as the controller is the lack of concave buttons is just worse. What do you think, Era?
Aside from the then-novelty of being able to position it vertically, I always kind of hated the PS2's design.
Or Twinbee: Rainbow Bell Adventures, or Parodius! I'm still salty.
Yeah it really does look kinda industrial now that you mention it. And if it's aged to the point of yellowing, that matches up with the off-white color of industrial machines as well.
