True but looks do make a difference when in a nice cabinet. I have my Wii on a nice tv cabinet under my nice tv. My tv is black, my PS3 is black, my 360 Elite is black, so I thought I would change my Wii case into a black one so it blended in better.
I think a lot of people mod their consoles just because they can, that way they don't all have the same as everyone else.
Have you seen the crazy mods people have done to their 360 consoles and PC cases. I am one of the ones with a crazy PC case mod.
