Remember the Xbox 360 Faceplates? Yeah, Microsoft confesses..

That they were a total failure.

Turns out OXM has our backs, asking Microsoft global marketing director Albert Penello about that very topic.

"The idea wasn't bad ... people used to put faceplates on their cell phones. Rewind five years, faceplates were what everybody wanted to do," he said. "Turned out nobody bought it. So [we stopped] making them. We killed that one pretty quickly."

Well, thanks for telling us now, Albert. We suppose you'll be explaining this to our stockholders?

That's a bummer. I kind of wish I had gotten more, now that I know that. But if I have to get a new 360 any time soon, it won't work on the new ones anyway, so I guess it's ok. :D

BV, Spartan, Mastermario, and I got some free faceplates at Best Buy's Starcraft II release last July. I don't have a 360 so ended up giving it to DeathMonkey for his console.
