We’d like extra colourful consoles like this pink Nintendo Change Lite
Nintendo introduced this week a brand new shade for the Nintendo Change Lite, the primary for the reason that handheld launched, and it’s a beautiful shade of coral-pink. Whereas I had no intention of getting a brand new Change that I don’t want, I admit this one shade is making me query my very own shade preferences, but additionally why we don’t have extra brightly coloured consoles on the market.

Nintendo revealed the brand new shade could be launched along side the brand new Animal Crossing recreation, New Horizons. Nintendo can be releasing an AC-branded Switch Classic in pleasant inexperienced and blue. However nonetheless, that pink although.
The pink Change is the primary shade of the console I’ve truly preferred in its complete lifespan — and I’m together with each variations of the console in that. I’m not eager on any of the Pleasure-Con colours, and whereas the turquoise Change Lite is alright, the pink one is the primary one which’s triggered the necessity in my little magpie mind.
Okay, possibly this craving isn’t totally with out precedent. I owned the pink Recreation Boy Advance, and was so enamored with the colour that, after I purchased the ever-present worm gentle, I hunted for ages for a pink one as a result of it had to match. I additionally owned a crimson Nintendo 3DS, each of which, whereas not in common use, occupy locations of honor on my console show. And so they stand out, as a result of the opposite seven gadgets on the cabinets are both SNES grey or a shade of black.
There’s nothing mistaken with the Change I’ve acquired. It’s a day one Change Traditional. It’s strong, reliable, and has the long-lasting crimson/blue Pleasure-Con the corporate confirmed off within the months main as much as launch (the one different possibility on the time was the one with two grey Pleasure-Con and… no). It’s my ride-or-die, and I’m frankly astonished we’ve been collectively for nearly three years now. Time flies. However rattling it, it’s simply by no means fairly had the je ne sais quoi of the opposite Nintendo handhelds I’ve owned.
This gleeful response to the pink Change Lite makes me marvel why such nice colours are a curiosity, and fundamental black is the norm. Consoles are speculated to be devices of enjoyable, and black plastic actually doesn’t look as techno-chic because it used to. Whereas now we have but to see the PlayStation 5, now we have seen that the Xbox Collection X is yet one more black field, and I’ve no motive to consider the PS5 shall be any completely different.
Come on, console makers, would it not kill you to offer us some shade choices? Give me a PS5 in royal blue or an XSX in neon inexperienced and I’ll purchase 5 yesterday. In any case, I don’t have room for a pink Change Lite particularly as a result of I’m leaving room for the next-gen choices.
