    I just ran across their site, and their price for a US/Japan switch mod is pretty good (better than NCS); it's even lower if I decide to get a paintjob for my Gamecube.
    They look legit, and the idea of a metallic blue/black two-tone Gamecube with blue LEDs is enticing. They do PS2 (and other) color mods too.

    I never heard of it before but it seems kind of cool. I don't think I'll be changing the color of any my consoles anytime soon but the other mods seems pretty cool as well.

    Is there really much of a market for coloring your console? Think I can send them my TV? I've always thought a blue Wega would be cool. [​IMG]

    umm no. Spray painting a console is not a good idea IMO. However, if the original manufacturers were to make a few metalic versions instead of that crappy clear colored plastic mess Nintendo tries to pull off, I would go for it.

    Spray painting consoles a no-no? Do you guys even know the sizable community obsessed with modding their $2000 computer's cases? A little paint and lacquer goes a long ways.

    Well, to each their own no doubt. A computer case is not proprietary. It chips, gets scratched, or rubs off, just buy a new case. Not so with a console. When the finish starts to wear, you are stuck with it.

    Not to mention killing the warranty of an expensive component. Ahh well, again to each their own. I see no point in modding PC cases either.

    The money they charge is pretty nuts when you can do it yourself. That was my point. I can't see them staying in business long.
    BTW, my PC is fully pimped out. [​IMG]

    They paint them? I was at a game shop a few years ago and they had new coloured bodies for PS and DC for sale and you changed the internals yourself.

    IGNCube did a write-up on it, read it here.
    Looks like I'm gonna be doing a paint/region/led mod in a couple weeks. I'll post my feedback then.
