Different Prices for Different Colors

Have you ever wondered why items have a different price for different colors and finishes but yet it’s the same product?

I have thought about this probably more than I should but I’m a sucker for colorful things. Mobile phones, tablets, PCs, electronics and yes, that lime green apple peeler. When the choice is there, I prefer to go for the colorful options. But choosing the colorful items means there will always be a higher price to pay. In fact the price goes wayyyyy up.

Why? Is it because they need “special” dye or whatever to make it? Supply and demand?

I’m just tired of paying more money for a colorful color. Since I’m now fed up with crazy color prices, I began to question it. What’s the real answer here? I decided to do some research but I didn’t really find the answer I was looking for.

It seems to be that businesses use different colors as a weapon against consumers. They know that certain colors will always be popular, so they can bring them out whenever they want to make more money. Sad sad sad sad. Maybe it takes different materials and time to make something more special with a color but does it really cost that much more to make that? I don’t know, I don’t really think so but this sure is a nice tool they get to use to their advantage.

Guess I won’t be getting that lime green apple peeler. Oh wait… who am I kidding – of course I will! 🙂

Gaming Controller Customizations – Build Your Own

If you’re into customizing, it’s time to take your game controllers to the next level. Gamers have plenty of choices to choose from when their controllers get involved.  There are some pretty good websites out there that have so many color options and designs to choose from. Not only that, some websites have options to turn not just your current age controllers but also your old school controllers into stunning artsy material.

Imagine being able to customize every color and detail on your controller, exactly how you want it. That’s where your journey begins. Color, buttons, LEDs, thumbsticks. Again – if you are into customization you will probably find this pretty sweet. Some people might ask why you would want to waste money on that? Well, for one thing, personality; it shows a little bit about you. Some people like combining colors and quotes together and it just makes people happy. So, if the offer is there, why not? You’re the only person who gets to decide what you want.

What is the cost of customization? It’s pricy, starting at $84.99 and up depending what goodies you decide to add on. Not everyone can afford these luxury things, so setting small amounts of money aside could help to achieve this expensive goal.

What websites would I recommend for playing controller dress up?

Xbox Design Lab: It’s so easy and it’s extremely fun, the choices are endless. Every component on the controller can be changed to the color of your choice.

Controller Chaos: They take ALL of your controller needs seriously. Since 2008, gaming is serious business to them. These guys have been dealing with controllers for a long time. Their customer service is also outstanding, according to the great reviews at Trust Pilot.

Take a look here at the Controller Chaos campus. This is pretty cool.

Is it worth it? If you have your controller in your hand more than 30 hours a week, and are into luxury controllers, then yes. It is very expensive, but they do make perfect gifts.

What’s there not to love about this one? In the end it looks great – why not have an impressive controller in your hands that you can officially call your own? I think customizations are wonderful ways to add to your gear.
