ColorWare ‘NES’ Joy Con, Colored Switch And Wolfenstein Consoles

Maybe I am not all into all things colored, but when the maestro of coloring gadgets posted a tweet of a Formula Red and Steel version of Nintendo’s latest game console, Switch, I am immediately sold.

It is ridiculously stylish, but of course, red and steel combo may not be everyone’s cuppa and that’s really not a problem if you just want to get away from the predominantly black unit. I mean, it is ColorWare that we are talking about and therefore, myriad of color options is at your disposal if you are willing to drop the right amount of money for it.
