You and me both sister!   I like a more clean look like that, especially since it matches the system. I sorta feel like the neon colors were an after thought since they didnt offer systems in those colors. Tried at the last min to make their system pop and appeal to the splatoon loving/younger crowd.

I went with grey, mostly because the blue and red pre-order allotment was already filled by the time I got around to ordering one.

I like the gray the best. Going with the Neon option makes it seem like they are targeting the cliche 4 person family with 1 boy and 1 girl.

Gray/Gray for me, I like things to be matching and symmetrical lol, the two different colors bother me.

I'll go with grey/grey as coloured controllers scream cheap aftermarket that will crumble in my hands when the game pisses me off.

Grey/grey (I usually type gray) for me. They look so sleek against the tablet and the red and blue clash too much.

Also, in before "neither! I'm not paying scalpers or evil Nintendo's prices!" Or "neither, I don't play modern games".

I went with grey/grey just because I like neutral colors for consoles (generally). But if they ever come out with orange spice joycon I'll buy em!

This. If I end up buying more joycons down the line, I'll probably get a pair of red and/or a pair of blue. I don't like having two different colors for left and right though, and as a portable device it looks weird as red/gray-black console/blue.

I always go with colors when presented with the option. Plain gray or black is boring.

Same boat here. I don't mind the colors of the red neon and blue neon, in pairs of the same color, but the mismatched joycons is not to my liking. Honestly my first impression of the red/blue neon Switch is that I could put it on top of my car and pretend to be a police car.

I'm going grey because I've become more simple in my old age.

I could probably get into the red, if the entire system was that color.

Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

Do most people type Gray? I guess i should of went with that since it says Gray on the box. I feel like this is a topic for a whole nother poll!

I gotta say, i thought there would be a little more diversity here. Laughed when i saw 20 for Grey and 1 for the mix

I really don't like the bright colors, especially since the console itself is that sleek looking grey. It looks really tacky with bright colors.

Well I got the gray/gray switch but preordered the blue/blue joycons. I can't stand the lack of symmetry having two different colors on either side of the switch.

Dang, I'm the only one who voted so far for blue/blue?! I thought they might be more popular than that!

Edit: If they had a gray translucent like the charging grip I would probably say that, that would look pretty sharp.

Grey/Grey I don t like controllers with a lot of color or worse alternating colors/ bright colors. I am easily distracted.
