I noticed that a pink Xbox 360 controller costs around 42euro, while the normal ones cost around 53 euro at gamestop. I was tempted buying the pink one since I could save money, but I dislike pink with a passion.

Then it got me thinking about other pink concole gear. Does it really sell or is it just a silly try to get more girls organized in games?

What do the mass of people think about the pink'ized console stuff?

How did the pink PSP do?

How do you as a male/female react to the pink?

When they make thinks pink, they really go super candy neon PINK. What about other fun colours as orange and purple? D:

i love orange (i had a orange cube) and a bigger aray of colours would be lovely for any console. but they always wait with doing that until the console isnt selling like hotcakes no more. so its time for the PS3 to do something about it ^.-

Amazing that a pink controller is cheaper, and wonder what the reason is:
- are they overstocked and therefore want to sell more
- do they want to expand their customers targeting at female gamers
- or is pink paint cheaper to produce and therefore the end-user price cheaper

For me it depends on the season if I like pink or not, same like white, as both are typical summer colors to me. But pink for a console no thanks! Although a lot of younger girls like pink products and there’s nothing wrong with that and of course the producers react on that market with pink stuff, and guess what? It works, otherwise they would have stopped producing pink game consoles / gear (by the way, have you seen the cover of that eye blinding pink “hello kitty daily” game for the DS?). I haven’t seen the pink PSP yet, so cannot comment on that but in general I find it good that consoles come in all types of colors and should be from the launch. Remember the Wii before launch in all those colors? I was already checking out which one I would buy based on which would be the most appropriate with the rest of my design in the living room, and what colors do we get at launch? Only white …. Which perfectly matches with the white xbox 360 so no color hassle about that hahaha

the answer is simple i think. it was the same with other pink things. even not all girls love pink or even find it to girlish. and now they have a huge overstock

They wouldn't make a controller cheaper if they sold as good as the white ones. Which means that they actually made it cheaper cause they had a huge overstock of them.

So when do the cheaper and colored PS3's and even Wii's are going to be released. Is it time for another color change for these consoles? It's been 2 years ago that the colored wii's were presented!

If there's a pink PS3 coming out and super cheaper than the rest... Why shouldn't I abuse the pinkness, I'm a girl afterall. *automatically forgiven by the mass of gamers*

Life would be easier if they didn't release the consoles in different colours though. Humanity is getting picky! Maybe changing-colours-with-your-mood is the next in thing. :D
