Whilst one console sports a design that’s reminiscent of the style and flair of an Apple product, the other resembles a shiny matt black George Foreman grill, but how do the game cases compare for each competing console?
Well the PlayStation 3 game casing made its début via online gaming publication IGN yesterday, and truth be told didn’t initially impress. Coming across as a hybrid, encompassing design flair from both the PSP and the PlayStation 2 the game casing looked, well, rather cheap with an obvious plastic feel to it – not really the show-piece you want for a console costing in excess of four hundred pounds.
Now to the other extreme we have the Nintendo Wii game casing, something that’s sure to turn the heads of the more image concious consumer out there. Taking design cues from Steve Jobs himself, the Wii game casing looks as though it was a direct fusion of Nintendo’s unabashed love for Apple, and it’s overall love for simplicity, therefore creating what many will see as a break through for game-case design.
