When you purchase a console do you prefer lighter or darker consoles? Perhaps you have a certain colour you like the most or you might just always hold out for some limited edition before making the purchase?

I like darker consoles personally. A black console seems to fare better over time than a white one in my experience. I do like to get limited editions where I can though as the fancy designs often entice me.
 
I've never really thought about it. Most of my consoles have been black or consoles that never had varients.

I do really like the purple and orange Gamecube though and I did for a little while have an R2D2 Xbox 360.

I guess overall I prefer darker colours though,ightrr colours on expensive tech can often look tacky.

I prefer light coloured ones especially the fluorescent coloured ones.
Because I find them more attractive than the black ones.

I usually go with darker color ones, though there are some exceptions. But for the most part I usually go with the darker schemes.

There has only been one time when I had a choice in colour of console. That was the PS4 Slim I bought. I chose the white one. I just have a thing for white consoles. I really like them.

All the rest I have bought over the years had zero variations when I bought them or in the case of the WiiU, the high end SKU was only black. Nintendo made the low end SKU only white. I didn't have an external HDD at the time to use so I had to get the high end SKU black.

I don't really give color any thought. I always think about price and condition since I always buy them second hand. Though if I had a choice, I always go with the black ones; white isn't for me.

All my consoles including my PC are black thought the PC can change its lighting colour to what I want.

I find black and white go with any colour scheme really.

I don't really care for the most part. I just get whatever the default color is in order to get the handheld/console. Though if given the choice I would go for darker colors (red, black, etc).
