Black an armor color?

My Spartan is colored steel:

My friend says his is also, but look how much darker it is compared to mine:

We've both confirmed that we selected the darkest gray color in the upper left corner of the color selection. But his is darker for some reason.

What gives?

I'm thinking because black armor could hide in dark places and wouldn't need camo......I guess.

Would have been nice to have it though.

One looks like a different render of the character with more detail put on it.

Armor kits potentially? TV settings? Kind of strange though.

This is viewed from my PC monitor with no settings changed. Can you see the difference?

yes hit b 6 times in main menu (one with the rain), left (d-pad), right, left, left, left, up, down, right, left, left, right, up, then exit to main menu and go to armory, you should see the flashing star there indicating you have unlocked the 'elite' set of extra armor colors
