The US version looks so bland and lifeless.
Opinions and all that, but the Wii is so plain as to have almost no design at all, and the PS4 to me cannot be sleek because it's so enormous, just a giant plain black rectangle.
That color scheme still lives on, and it's great.
I was specifically mentioning PS4 Slim, and I meant it. For all the power the Pro has, it loses out in sleek design. But would you really call the Slim enormous?Opinions and all that, but the Wii is so plain as to have almost no design at all, and the PS4 to me cannot be sleek because it's so enormous, just a giant plain black rectangle.
Neither are particularly offensive and at least the Wii is small, but both are just... nothing.
Yea, I don't get this either tbh. I don't want half of my face buttons inverted to the other half. If convex were preferable, then I would want all four face buttons to be that way. Having half-and-half just means two of the buttons will always feel worse by contrast, and you'd always have the alternative there to ensure you continue to notice.
That's a great pic. Also that cartridge shape is just better than the Japan/EU thing. Also also game title on top of cartridge, that's some great design.There's just something a US Super NES with uh ... Super Mario World inserted into its uh ... slot that's so damn ... uh ... sexy though.
Like the US SNES isn't a conventionally "sleek" piece of hardware but there's just something about this:
That screams "the mother of all Christmas presents", lol.
I mean, it is an ugly gray box but the idea was to distance it from video games which were still suffering from the crash and make it appear more like another consumer electronic the masses would be more comfortable with, the VHS player.
Aesthetics are nice but practicality wins for me any day. Not being able to tell at a glance what cart is what is a pain in the ass.
In complete agreement with you there.
