why do companies nolonger make clear versions of their products?
It's ugly. It used to be cool because no one else was doing it, but now everyone realizes how stupid it is. No one wants to see the internal workings of their machine. Nowadays, sleek black/white/grey is what's in. It's also why we don't have as many colored consoles and handhelds anymore, compared to back then when there were like half a dozen colors for the Gameboy and N64.
>But you gaylords probably think the inside of any computer is ugly too
No, that's nice to look at on occasion because you respect the effort put into it. When you see it all the time it loses its luster and becomes awful to look at and looks like it was only half way finished.
I don't know OP, that shit was cool as fuck.
>you'll never have a transparent Wii U
>It's a 2ds so it's shit and doesn't count
There's a clear PS4 controller as well if I'm not mistaken.
The clear versions were the best. Then they started making clear colored versions like atomic purple and jungle green, which were a little different but still neat. Then only solid colors. I even bought a clear shell swap for my ipod back in the day when those were a thing.
