This console gen could use some more color.

Nintendo had set a precedent of having an extensive array of assorted colors available for its console and controllers starting with the N64. The GCN continued this tradition but with slightly less colors, and the Wii did the same but it took a long time for it to finally release more colors especially in the west, and even then they were few and far between. Piano/Matte black and Glossy white are cool, but right now I'd really love more options for Wii U and really even PS4/Xbox One I'd love to see more color introduced again. (Or at least sooner) Just check this out and tell me it doesn't make you crave one of your favorite colors.

But TC, aren't colors just entirely aesthetic and serve no real purpose you may ask? Sure, but everytime you look over at that console you can be happy and have that you got that extra bit of preference in your console. To borrow a quote from a similar idea applied for underwater fast food, "Pretty Patties rule!"

whats wrong with black consoles?
it matches your vcr, dvd player, tv, that black car on your street, that one dress your lady friend never wears anymore, that chocolate donut you forgot you ate, and batman.

/i dislike the lack of color too.

I'd kill for a red wii u controller. The vita and 3ds are getting awesome colors too.

I was expecting it from Nintendo instead of Sony:

It'd be nice to have more options, but I'm not going to buy a second gamepad whenever they go on sale. Pro controller color options perhaps?
