Oh don’t mind me. I’m just somebody who will never touch such a thing nm play them. Quite simply the white banner looks too different compared to the past ones. It’s off putting. 

But what I'm saying is that the XBOX has had a green case with green bar (XBO, XSX), a green case with a black bar (OG) and a green case with a white bar (360), which is fine... whereas PlayStation has had a blue case with a blue bar (PS4, Vita), a blue case with a black bar (PS2), but it's apparently "ignoring their history" by having a blue case with a white bar... that's the part I don't understand and I'd like some sort of elaboration on, lol... how exactly is it ignoring their history if they're keeping the blue case, I'd have thought it'd be the other way around lol

Also did the white banner of the 360 games  look too different or offputting? Because I liked those too lol

The 360 banner still had the green which still is a far better standout out as a color. White doesn’t match their brand as i see it, there is no deeper thought process. Simply my first gut instinct. The blue aspect means nothing to me. The white banner just isn’t appealing to the eye imo.

Playstation's colour is generally blue, so the cases are blue. The PS5's colour scheme is primarily white, so the white header makes sense. 

What are you even talking about? What asinine point are you trying to make here? 

It's almost like he's forgetting the X360 was a white console, with games that had green cases and a white banner/header, lol... why should this be any different other than replacing green (The colour of XBOX) with blue (The colour of PlayStation)... weird o.O I just want to know his reasoning behind it...

Oh cmon it was their second console. They don’t have a locked brand identity yet, they were but just a teenager in 2005 ;)

They didn't originally;

I don't understand what you mean when you say white doesn't match their brand... their brand colour is blue, just like the XBOX is green, and Switch is red... the white is to match with the console, and it's not like they've never had a white console before, I'm literally looking at my white PS4 right now lol. Still wanting to know how they're ignoring their history, when the blue is right there... but then again you've said the blue means nothing to you, which kind of implies you don't actually know their history and how they're associated with the colour blue or something.



They are growing on me, but as mentioned by @BraLoD and @Leynos in the first few posts, I too, still would have definitely preferred a black or white case.

White banner to me is just a eyesore. And the part of the PS history, i guess you showed how little I actually knew of their game cover history. But admittedly I never gave the subject much thought. So if it helps to expedite this I’ll concede the history point.

Yeck. I might just stick to digital next gen. Guess it's not spiderman art's fault, I just really dislike the color scheme.

WTF people complaining about basically a PS4 case with a different header colour?


Literally any and all change will be met with SOME form of resistance. This is a universal truth. 

It just seems like people care because, on the internet, it's a whole lot easier for your voice to carry if you're being negative about something. Bad news always overshadows good news because people are much louder about sharing bad news and negative opinions than good news and positive opinions. The mature types who like a thing usually know better than to make a big deal out of it because someone will invariably step in to make them regret it. As a result, the silent majority (or just people who contentedly like a thing) have no desire to share their love. 

I, for instance, really loved The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, but holy hell I don't talk about it much because I always have someone tell me I'm wrong! 

On the flipside (And yes I admit the hypocrisy here), if someone says they liked the last season of Game of Thrones, I am HAPPY to rant for 12 hours about how wrong they are and how atrociously bad it was (Seriously, in the finale when I was watching it, it took me like 3 hours to get through it because I stopped and paused it every 30 seconds to rant for a minute about how stupid that particular line of dialogue was...in the finale of quite possibly my favourite show of all time!). I identify this poor behaviour in myself and yet still am subject to it. 

So yeah, people will bitch about it being white and blue instead of blue and blue. People love to bitch. That is a universal truth. 

Well what you say ain't wrong lol.

I find that for me if I keep myself so busy I don't have time to over think it.

I too enjoyed TLJ and TRoS. But i didn't go in thee with a critical mind. I take movies for what they are, a made up world and not real, so even if it has little annoyances that don't align with other movies in a series it really doesn't matter. Life too short to hang up on these things.

I think you will find most would agree about GoT. The reason it sucked so bad is because the rest of it was so damn good lol. They built up all the characters from basically nobodies to suddenly rush it all out.  Now image the original Star Wars Trilogy, they build up all this hype between Luke and Darth. Then image if that last scene instead was Darth being killed by an Ewok, that is how GoT felt after all that build up to that battle lol



 

 

I thought the case looks ok. It is in keeping with the colour scheme so they are being consistent (more so that their prev consoles) so good on em.
Ultimately it doesnt matter to me as I will be mostly physical game purchases for the PS5.
