Personally Ive never liked different face plates so my favourite is plain old white one with the chrome tray.

Aemeath

Same here, I prefer the default-white one as well. I always thought it would look kinda stupid if you're faceplate is all colourfull and everything else stays white.

I was about to finally change it like 2 weeks ago when the Soul Calibur 4 faceplate arrived that I had won. But then again saw the body of the 360 still being all white and that really looked stupid. So I'll just collect faceplates because some of them really look awesome.

I don't have any other face plates because of the same reason Aemeath said. So I like the white one the best :)

I prefer the default face plate, I agree that a coloured front with a stark white body would look (in my opinion) stupid. Also, they are expensive for no reason! Why spend money on things like faceplates and skins that dont affect play when I could get MS points instead, or more Live time?

Plus, how many people really come over to look at and compliment you on your xboxs appearance?

I also prefer the stock faceplate.. A sexy black Elite faceplate
I do have a Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 faceplate that i used for a while, but i prefer just my black one

I just have a skin for my 360 the one that i won as a prize on this site, the blue dragon one, but for some reason the skin for the face plate was to small so i have like a blue lightning skin for my face plate, I love it lol, and it goes really well, Ive got a picture in my albums on my profile, if you wanna look go ahead.:)

I actually have two I painted them both I will upload the one. I don't have a pic of the other one. The one I really want is the Gears of War announcement faceplate it the one they were giving away when you played the demo of Gears of War at E3.

The one I'm using right now is the Universe At War faceplate they gave away for those who pre-ordered the game. The game is rubbish, but the faceplate looks really good if you have your system sitting horizontally. I also have all the Eternal Sonata faceplates.

Although i hate putting faceplates on my console i love having them, my favorites are the RSV2 and COD4 ones. There both designed wonderfully and look great off the box.

I was going to buy one from Hayden but then decided not to since i wouldn't use it, i was just buying it for it's looks, kind of like a Prostitute :p

I like my cousin's Canadian Maple Leaf faceplate but don't care about any of them enough to dish out $20 for one. If I got one free, sure, but I'd probably still just use the default.

09-04-2008, 05:33 PM

My manager was contemplating selling it on ebay, but the higher up's said if they found out you were selling employee incentives online, you could lose your job.

I bought a couple of these faceplates the morning it came out in Shinjuku...good thing I did because they were very limited and sold out the first day. I sold the other one for a good amount of money on ebay. Don't mind the veggie friends on the 360.

Personally, I want one of those interesting custom ones you see on ebay. There are some really talented people making custom faceplates!

My manager is the exact same way and then he displays it when we all hang out... he also has one of the E3 Gears of War announcment faceplates that I told him I was going to murder him in his sleep for lol

when i bought my first 360 i had the entire thing airbrushed in a halo2 theme, but sadly....yes i know.... it got the redrings.... i have the faceplate somewhere and will put a pic up when i find it but i dont use it for 2 reasons, 1 the whole 360 was airbrushed and the faceplate was just part of its pasterpiece and 2 i have the halo3 edition now so putting a faceplate on would be against me :D

Those are really nice. I want one a faceplate or a custom faceplate that matches the green light of the xbox. I've seen the one that looks like a circles that expand out, but I don't like that one.

I have the Halo 3 faceplate. Its darker than it looks in the picture

http://www.xbox360france.com/upload/Gallery/43663.28JUILLET2006_HALO3FACEPLATE_01.jpgI saw it on for like.. $10 so i bought it.

I also have two of the plain white faceplates, one of which i'm going to get custom painted by my buddy Elric. Unfortunately hes colour blind though, so i'll have to get him to just do a solid black design. I was thinking a solid black octopus wrapping its tentacles around the faceplate (with the area for the button being its main body, and the tentacles going in the direction of the disc drive)

I also have the MASS EFFECT faceplate. It was $4.99 at eb games the other day so i bought it
