It's special because it's RED or GOLD!

Do you feel the same? A new console is announced and for some reason it always seems more special if the colors "RED" or "GOLD" are involved. Why is that? It is a little bit of a mystery why we pay so much extra attention to these colors.

 

Often red or gold consoles are very sort after, especially in the collecting world and it has become obvious that manufacurers wait especially long in a consoles lifecycle before releasing a red or a gold variation. We can't know if these colors are actually sold more than others, but what we can definitely agree on is that many collectors tend to seek these colors more than others. Especially if a console was released in many colors at the same time it is usaually the RED or the GOLD variation that is sold out first or becomes the hardest to collect in the future.

 

Maybe it is because RED symbolizes very strong emotions like love and passion but also anger and agression. Or we love shiny GOLD so much because we feel like it is something more precious like a treasure. But maybe they just catch our eye more...

 

We are not sure, but in the following week we want to highlight RED and GOLD consoles that had a particular high impact on fans upon their release or importance in the collecting world. Maybe you will see one worth owning!

 

We start today with 2 eye-catching RED consoles from Sony. They are true beauties!

The Xbox One Prototype

Nope, we don`t have this one on the site, This happened in 2013

..

25-year-old Jia Li ordered himself a new laptop on the Microsoft Store way back in March 2013, only to receive a top secret prototype for the as-then unannounced Xbox One.

 

When the package did eventually show up at his door, it had security tape all over it and contained the secretive box.

The Xbox One wasn’t officially unveiled until May 2013, and Li says the version he received had a zebra print pattern – apparently common practice in the console prototype business to make them harder to photograph. It’s also to stop them from being eaten by Lions in the wild.
