The new Xbox 360 Slim doesn't have replaceable faceplate, so whatever happened to those faceplate accessories that people bought to spice up their Xbox 360 and make it unique?
Our interview with Albert Penello in the latest issue of OXM's Five Years Of Xbox 360 feature includes a look back at the misjudged faceplate accessory.
"We don't ever create an accessory with the intent of having it fail", Penello says. "The idea wasn't bad... people used to put faceplates on their cell phones. Rewind five years, faceplates were what everybody wanted to do."
The Xbox 360 S, which was revealed at E3 this year, doesn't use faceplates and new official faceplates haven't been released for years. It "turned out nobody bought it. So [we stopped] making them. We killed that one pretty quickly".
Did you buy any faceplates?
