Shades of grey.

Post by 3DO Experience » Tue May 10, 2011 12:22 am

I always thought the FZ-10 was black but then I had put my NEO-GEO down next to it and got a surprise.

Not so black after all.

Haha, no, it's definitely not black.. My Sega Saturn can vouch for that! ;)

Well... At least the plug of your 3DO joypad seems to compete
with the NeoGeo in matters of blackness. Maybe that's something. ;)

this thread reminds me of the time on Psych when this FBI agent shows up and Lassiter is all "what color is that suit" and the FBI guys replies "Black" and Lassiter, wearing a black suit says "Funny it looks blacker than black" and he is told by the FBI guy it is 'FBI Black'

The AES is the most attractive gaming console ever.. But yes, the "black" description many use for consoles is usually a variety of dark gray it would seem. That FZ-10 looks comfortable with the AES however. Im thinking of retiring my FZ-1 and run the FZ-10 instead for my 3DO fix.

When i saw this thread title i thought it was going to be about the horrible contrast ratio and total lack of black level on digital TVs and projectors, when compared to their still superior CRT counterparts....

Instead, i see one of the best home consoles made, sitting beside what is without question THE best home console ever made.... :D
