So the holidays are coming. And don't we all hate black equipment? That's so 1980's! To go all white, what's the wisest thing to do?
The worst website ever created by a human?
you call TheMart a human?? interesting... :)
In fact the ALL WHITE equipment sounds great, it will look more high tech, more modern, it stands out more and looks great in my white and seafoam green living room.
They all go piss yellow with age. Saying that I still love my Dreamcast even if it looks like its pissed its pants ;)
Remember when everyone wanted things to be all oak colored, then all blonde oak colored then all black colored, well now it's a white colored.
It's called a wash cloth? you know you use it to clean house sometimes. A broom and mop works to, for the other parts of your house.
White is simply ok.
Black electronics look like 1970's stereos, nondescript and outdated. White electronics look like a colour chosen *other* than the default, it shows that a choice was made. It stands out as unique.
Lame: (1 hour ago) xboxkings = biased simple and obvious ... Lame: (3 hours ago) racist conotations? ... Lame: (6 hours ago) XBOX Kings is a joke of a site lol Reported by: Bigmac573 .. Other: (6 hours ago) Im reporting this simply because its will end up as no more than fanboy bait. Look at all the abuse of the reporting system. How sad. The SDF doesnt like it, so they try and bury it.
So I agree so far. But the new black is Piano black. Its just annoying keeping it clean looking. wageslave, 70's electronics was mostly made with chrome and Wood. That look was about again in a mimiced fashion about 5 years ago. The black thing is the mid 80's to mid 90's period. But there is a big difference now, shiny and rounded compared to matt and square of the 80's and 90's. My Shiny black PS3 And Shiny Black Samsung TV Look great sat on my pure white living room wall. The only problem is i've developed a compulsive disorder. I am constantly wiping them down with a lint free cloth (that came free with the TV). The slightest marks show up like a beacon. As I said above, the problem with White is that after a few years (no matter how hard you try to keep them out of the sun and smoke free) White plastic yellows. I've tried all sorts of things to bring my beautiful Dreamcast back to its original colour, and nothing works (not even soaking the casing overnight in mild bleach as alot of people suggested from the days back with PC Engine). It depends on the plastic quality overall, but generally internal heat will make that sexy white thing look a bit old and mukky eventually.
"racist connotations?" lol, that's exactly what I was thinking. The writer's use of words does seem like a big indicator that the comments are a bit racist. Whether or not this true or if this was not deliberate is debatable.
That title goes to Sony Defense force...but this may come in a close second
i havnt been on that website, but i do know that Xboxkings is a good place to hang out, even if you just want to chat, or even challenge someone to a match on a game.
This message is probably endorsed by your local chapter of the KKK.
Whit is just terrible for a console. Have you seen the white ps3 and ps2? They are hideos! Black is the only color to choose.
Seriously, no joke.
...and kind of fond of the new white looks. Can't wait to get my Singstar bundle. No racial connotation intended.
I'm sorry, but how does this even qualify as "news"? It's just some stupid waste of bandwidth that some no name with nothing else to do typed up so MART can have another excuse to pimp his website. You fail at any sort of a chance at objectivity ever since I laid eyes on that "IT'S SONY BASHING TIME" banner ad. Seriously. Edit: Hey Marty, what happens when someone buys an Elite, eh? You stick your foot in your mouth, that's what you do!
Indeed, don't like the black Elite also. Although the black from the PS3 is too shiny, when you put a finger on it, your fingerprint is so visable. That's not the fact on an Elite. But I say to anyone who asks what to buy: get a white 360 Premium. For those that otherwise would bought a PS3 just because of the colour black, now have the option to get the best gaming device also in black with the 360 Elite. Everyone else should buy a white Premium. And then get the white PS3 @ Christmas 2008 like is even stated in the article. What's the problem? Even promoting the PS2 white edition to buy this Christmas. It's not news. It's an article. Read dude, read.
White is the new black for slimmer consoles like PS2 and Wii, and 360 looks better in white with it's hourglass appearance. The PS3 however looks ridiculous in white. No matter how much PS3 tries to suck in it's gut and cover up it's weird bar-b-que grille shape, it just doesn't work. PS3 must be black or at least a very dark shade of blue.
However I suddest that sony change it's color to pea soup green, that's a great new ps3 color. And a well deserved one too.
Yeah, and the 360 looks good in black and white... Blackened plastic from a 360 melting down from the inside! See what I did there, troll?
You mean like Halo 360 edition? Edit to XGamer: Are u stupid? Did u even read what i wrote? Daytona said ps3 should be in pea green, then i asked him if he meant green like 360 Halo edition. Read and reflect on what you have read before you write you artard...
When you just say stupid things for spike, what your doing is dhiarhea of the mouth, the more you talk the more sh1t comes out. If your going to counter someone, try using some inteligence and not a your momma so fat joke, M'Kay?
God MART, i really hate you. Just wanted you to know. I hate you so much that i hope your xbox gives you a terminal illness and you die. seriously though you are a real coksucker. just go back to your xbox site and leave PS3 owners alone. You know ul buy one. You know your gonna want one. So just shut your face.
Calm down a bit, eh? I know the internet is serious business and all, but jeez...
yeah the guy under you is right, you should calm down. firstly xboxkings is a legit site, they review games etc and therefor news it able to be posted on n4g and to be linked to xboxkings. second of all this is NOT a PS3 site, its called news4gamers which obviously included the xbox 360 however much you dont want it to. so deal with it.
Lmao! I agree with you, this guy jacks off to Bill everynight
Wish there was a age limit on this site.
I know its called news for gamers. i think youv missed the point. I was pointing out that MART always seems to have something to say about PS3 and tries to bring bad news to the table. Its got nothing to do with what the website is. All im saying is why does'nt he go post his anti-sony comments to his xbox friends on an xbox site, because nobody wants to hear it
well if you actually read the article that TheMART posted, you will find it says this "So what about the PS3? Save that one to buy at Christmas 2008. When the white PS3 will be available all around the world. When the white controller in the package has rumble. When Home is out of beta and implemented finally. When it'll cost between 200 and 300 Euro/Dollar, when the 65nm chip is integrated, when the games are here... (GT5, MGS4, FFXIII, KZ2 and we guess God of War 3)" in there you will find it says to get one Christmas 2008 as there should be enough decent games out (named above) also it says NOT to get an Xbox 360 Elite so to be honest i think this article is pretty well even towards both sides.
i hope for a white christmas every year if you know what i mean.
Hell, why not "MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!".
That was kinda sick, but funny =) As to expect from cartman...
It might be the hottest thing ever, i have a piano black 42 samsung tv, piano black avanti surround system and the black beast standing next to it. It looks amazing, but it´s a real bit*h to keep it clean. Ps: I have my 360 hidden because it doesnt match, but as soon as they release a piano black i will sell it and buy that one instead. If it doesnt happen i have to buy the ordinary black, but i want it to shine. I could maybe get a black and replace the front with some piano black.
yeah its a great color for gadgets and stuff like that
with the tile i was sorta expecting some good journalism, which would have stayed away from the actual fanboyishness. but when you set the theme for a story as the colours of the systems, stick to the colours of the systems instead of trying to bash the ps3 and the games it has...somehow that didnt fit with the "news". i dont care if your site's name is xboxkings, but maybe if you removed your fanboy veils for a second you may be able to write an article with some sense. note to the authors. write a story and then judge the title..dont put your opinion first and then try to justify it because then you would end up with this...non-newsworthy articles
Oh i just had to reply to this, Hey Mart your a big idiot, I think MS thinks red and white are the new Black, what with all those RRODS, Lmao Enjoy your crapped out lasts for 5 hours 360 pal, Ill keep to the shiny sleek black. Black never goes out fashion.
some guy named joe.
Matches everything in my house for my Home Theatre System.. If my home stereo was white that would be to much..maybe gay people like white but us real guys like black.
I think the PS3 should've been some shiny dark blue, a shiny red the shiny black.... but above all.... SILVER!!!! one of these days imma take my PS3 apart and get my friend to spray paint it that sexy chromeish silverish what ever.... and paint the already silver part black =D
any dual owner will tell you. Go to amazon. Apple doesn't use white anymore in ads, the black ds is shown first on ads, every hdtv is sexy black. White is apple 2001-2005. It's played out. Basically if it is to be taken seriously it's black. The reason of this article is because white is confusing the mart, not matching anything on 2007 store shelves. Wack!
stupid site: " In short: buy a white 360 Premium, white PS2 and white Samsung 32 inch HDTV this Christmas. Leave all black equipment to catch dust on the shelves! " I wonder, why u hate PS3!!! Is gates paying u money or something??
Have you even read it? The article stated to get the white PS3 model with white rumble Christmas 2008, not the black one know. The subject also is to get an all white gaming setup. Do you rabbid Sony fangirls even get that idea?
So EVERY xbox 360 is gonna look like piss within the next year or two max since the 360's run so damn hot. That's gonna look soooo good isn't it!
My Shiny Black PS3 next to my Shiny black HDTV is great. And when im back at home i will have a white 360 to go with however it just wouldn't match. I Need to get a shiny Black faceplate for it and some black controllers. Shiny Black Equipement > White equipment imo. A large white TV will just look tacky to me and over time will go yellow(ish), plus all the dirt shows up on it
And that is a legit reason to own a black PS3, or a black Elite whatever you want. The article is based around getting an ultimate white gaming setup. But some of the people above just don't get that. They say it's sh!t because the PS3 is black. Isn't a white PS3 coming also, but probably not untill 2008 in Europe/USA. So why is Sony bringing the new white PS2 this Christmas? WHy are they bringing the new white PS3 in Japan/Korea now and the rest of the world in 2008??? BECAUSE WHITE IS HOT. Although I can perfectly understand why you would like a black setup, or buy a black console to match your current TV or HiFi system.
White, black or yellow with little purple dot. PS3 is a very good console ;) buy now and enjoy.
one big mistake they made was saying home finally being out of beta 2008 christmas? its suppose to be final in spring not christmas. And the white PS3 to the US isnt 100% sure yet.
Check the latest news. Home will be in Japan in Spring. It's not certain if USA/Europe will get Home (non beta) then also. But even then, combined with MGS4 (2nd quarter done they say, but pretty sure it'll release in fall/winter for better sales), as GT5, FFXIII, KZ2 etc. will also release 2nd half of 2008. Plus the price that will drop just before Christmas 2008 for sure between 200 and 300 Euro/Dollar, a rumble controller included and be sure Europe/USA will get the white PS3. Even the silver PS3 will be probably here in 2008. Have you seen the announcement of the PS3? Already then they showed that three colours (black, silver, white).
TheMART, are you looking for PS3 ? we can contributed to help you ;) come with us to the light side of the Force ;)
Colors are just a matter of preference. The article was dumb, and people arguing about this are also dumb. :/
haha what a homo... the Mart is so jealous!!! I love it!
