I have 3 faceplates...One of them is one of the many given away at the zero hour event that i got off ebay...they made a wall of faceplates and Mark Ecko and crew done a grafftti tag over them so every faceplate is different

I do love collecting gameing stuff here and there, and am particularly fond of collecting faceplates. Have a bunch of cool and rare ones, including the bioshock one and E3 05 one(thank you ebay). Getting one of the eternal sonata ones next week when I pick up the game. Also got the Full Auto, The outfit, Madden 07, and Saints Row faceplates.

Also like collecting the things you get from pre ordering games. Things like free tshirts, demo disks, bonus disks, action figures etc.

I don't like collecting them because they cost too much for a piece of cheap plastic.

Other gaming stuff...yes. Faceplates...hell no.

I think it looks a little odd if the front of your 360 is black with pictures on with the rest of it white. (Unless of course you got the elite). Don't really see much point but if it looks good, do it.

I would collect faceplates but I already spend enough on games. :P

Already a big enough hole in my pocket!

Gotta admit, the BioShock faceplate is pretty cool. I like the UK launch team faceplate aswell. Here's a pic of it:

there anyone tried making there own face plates, you can buy kits from most stores but i dont know what u do or how it will turn out ??

09-13-2007, 06:01 PM
I have millions...kinda. I have one of those Neko design your own faceplate things...the only thing that looks good on that is the flames on black that comes with the thing. I don't use it. I also have a Mass Effect faceplate that comes with two skins for the left and right (or top and bottom) of the console. and one of those all red ones with the little green lettering between the USB ports and power button.

There is another that I would like though I'll never get it...a Bioshock faceplate that was sent to the manager of my local Gamestop...came in a nice little box and everything. Wish I could find a pic...

SkillfulMmd
09-13-2007, 07:18 PM
i can buy it now but theres 2 reasons why i wont

num 1 your looking at paying around $130 on ebay just for 1 face plate thats about 70 in the uk so thats out the window
num 2 with halo 3 a creed and naruto comming out i dont have the money so its either a game or f plate

oh 1 more thing does any one have any of the 9 PDZ glyphs cause i wanna know what would happen if you put em together

09-13-2007, 09:01 PM

I came home today and had a package waiting for me from one of my SG buds. I figured it was a game since we trade games quite a bit, but it was actually a faceplate that he made for me using model paint. It has the SG logo and my GT. Looks good on my Elite (except for my smudged up tray..lol )

I would like one of those Hot Rod faceplates...the blue with white Tribal stripes around the power button...

Wanted one of those ever since I got my 360.

No, I don't collect face plates but I think that's pretty cool if you do. I personally want the blue dragon face plate but it shows up as 40 some odd bucks on ebay which is a little pricey for my taste. The only reason I don't collect face plates it's because they're expensive. Very expensive in my opinion for a piece of plastic.

Why spend 15 dollars on a faceplate when you could be putting it twords a game

I got my red faceplate brand new at GameStop for three dollars. Now...wouldn't you spend ten bucks on a brnad new faceplate?

09-15-2007, 08:52 AM
ive got a blue tribal face plate and they go for 4.00 on ebay which would only be about $9.00 i think so there not that expensive and besides nearly all my face plates have come free with a game.

I'm not a collector of Faceplates, but it would seem that way because I have so many of them.

I have 2 Carbon Fiber faceplates. One belongs on my Elite and the other belongs on one of my Premiums.

I also forked out $40+ for a Blue Dragon faceplate. I placed that one on my NTSC-J L.E. Blue Dragon Core. Since it was a Core and not a Premium, it didn't include the B.D. faceplate.:(

Other than that, I have the stock Black Elite faceplate along with a bunch of stock White ones.

Why spend 15 dollars on a faceplate when you could be putting it twords a game

Word to that. My opinion is they are just another way for Microsoft to coin more money out of the punters.

Remember, you can't polish a turd.

if you can get a face plate then why noy in my opion there a great way to customize ur 360 and surport microsoft

09-18-2007, 09:44 PM
and surport microsoft

You gotta be shitting me??

I would rather they spend the money and time in developing the console hardware and games, and getting this right before boshing out cheap and tacky "face plates" Sure I got no problem if people buy them, but I myself find the designs a tad shit. Maybe I'm just getting to old :)

09-18-2007, 10:23 PM
ive had my 360 since they first come out and looking at a white thing all the time aint pretty so in come face plates and i just start buying em the elite was a big help much more sleek and better to look at

this is my point when you buy a car and you want it to look better you buy a body kit when you want ur 360 to look better you buy a face plate if ur a true gamer and want to make your 360 look better face plates are just one of the ways to go

ur a true gamer and want to make your 360 look better face plates are just one of the ways to go
Being a "true gamer" and wanting to make your 360 look better have nothing to do with eachother. Some people change faceplates to match their room's setup. Other change them because they like the way they look.

But in response to the main question, here are some of my faceplates.
