You should cherish your anniversary gift, or at least pretend to :) Don't exchange it.

A happy life is a happy wife. Think about it.

Don't be an asshole plus the white one is a long ways off.

@jamin724 Wait. When's your anniversary? Today?

Mine's today. Happy Anniversary.

Keep it.

What? No.

I couldn't care less what color my PS4 is (well, maybe if it'd be shiny-bright pink...), but different strokes for different folks, of course. Still, though, that bundle is months away from now and at least to me that would seem a bit of a dick-ish thing to do.

It's just a color, stick with what you got given to you

#8 Posted by Corvak (1192 posts) -

unless the entire tech industry is going to switch to white, i'd stick with black. I like my things to match.

#9 Posted by MannyMAR (572 posts) -

Why wait, when you got one right now.

Ps. Don't be racist.

Pps. I'm just joking about the racist thing.

I voted yes just to be a dick.....don't be a dick like me.

#11 Posted by believer258 (12593 posts) -

That sounds like a dick move for a simple color change. Don't do that to your spouse.

#12 Posted by OldManLight (1070 posts) -

be thankful you have a wife who would spend $400 on a game console for you as a gift. Don't exchange it. It would be a dick move even if she tells you it isn't.

Is a white one really going to make a difference? With every console I've ever owned, I stopped caring about how it looked after about a week. It's a machine that plays video games, I couldn't care less what colour it was and you shouldn't either. Will it being white make you play games betterr? No. If you want to return it and get the money back sure, but your wife might feel hurt. She probably thought you'd really like it and was willing to spend that much to make you happy. I get crappy gifts for Christmas and Birthdays all the time - stuff I don't want, but stuff that's also super expensive. My mother got a ludicrously overpriced leather briefcase for me once - I had no need for it, it cost almost 600 dollars and it was too heavy and bulky for me to take to the hospital every day. I still kept it, because she thought I'd like it and I didn't want her to feel bad (although I later tactfully and gently suggested that in the future she should actually consult with me as to what I needed rather than just assume I had a need for big, overpriced leather briefcases).

Keep your PS4. There are other games you might play on it. A white one is not gonna play your games any better and I guarantee you that in a week or two you won't even notice the colour, because the colour simply doesn't matter. It's not like you're gonna take your PS4 out in public and hold it aloft for all to see. My PS4 could be bright freaking hot pink for all I care, but I'd gladly take it if it was free.

Yo dawg hold on to the one you got.

#15 Edited by wallee321 (126 posts) -

Dude, it was a gift, say thank you and be grateful. I imagine it would be pretty hard to buy someone a nice, gift only to have them return it. The only notable exceptions are white elephant gifts and clothing (wrong size or just something you would never wear).

#16 Posted by Veektarius (5237 posts) -

Only crazy people object to a black console. If you're crazy, then get yourself institutionalized.

#17 Edited by pekoe212 (477 posts) -

But that's 3 months of waiting to play PS4 games you will never get back. Most importantly though...that is an awesome anniversary present! Don't hurt their feelings. Spray paint it or decal it or something if it means that much.....

#18 Posted by Hunkulese (2968 posts) -

How is a white one going to get any dirtier than a black one? It's not a t-shirt.

#20 Posted by Jesus_Phish (1513 posts) -

You can buy decals for your PS4, including basic white. I don't think the colour of your PS4 actually matters though. It's not like it makes it run faster.

Well, that depends. How do you feel about sleeping on the couch?

#24 Posted by Vuud (2054 posts) -

Not just white, but GLACIER WHITE. That's heavy, man.

#25 Posted by ConfusedOwl (1011 posts) -

I WISH someone would give me a PS4 as a gift. Returning it because it's not the colour you want seems foolish and a bit mean.

#27 Posted by enkind (2913 posts) -

No. I mean, she got it for you as a gift? That would instantly feel like a slap in my face.

#28 Posted by jiggajoe14 (972 posts) -

Yes. She'll understand (with a new enclave or ring of course).

#29 Posted by Dixego (403 posts) -

No, that's the most awesome anniversary gift. You must cherish it.

#30 Posted by TheHBK (5657 posts) -

I would not return it. especially if your wife is black. That would be awkward.

#31 Posted by Enuff (47 posts) -

The white one looks like crap anyway. It's an awesome gift, don't give it away!

#32 Posted by impartialgecko (1742 posts) -

The fuck? Who returns an anniversary gift?? Even it's a crap anniversary gift, it's your goddamned anniversary gift!

#33 Posted by Illuminosopher (348 posts) -

Go buy $5 worth of paint and make a day of it.

#34 Posted by mrcraggle (2035 posts) -

I like to go against popular opinion so I voted yes.

#35 Posted by Bedouin (63 posts) -

How long have you been married, because you should probably know the answer to this by now.


#36 Posted by Tyrrael (294 posts) -

*eats pure sarcasmium*

Everyone knows the white PS4 is going to have a faster CPU, faster GPU, more RAM, and the new GDDR72 memory. Of course, you should exchange it. You'd be stupid not to, and it's totally not a dick move.

*the sarcasmium appears to have worn off*

But seriously, don't exchange it. It plays the same games the same way, and the Jet Black still looks nice. What, does it not match your décor or something? FFS, I can't believe this is actually a question.

#37 Posted by Solh0und (1941 posts) -

Once you go black, you never go back..wow even I found that to be in bad taste.

Serious answer: No

Going by your username, you seem to know about legal matters. Who would keep the gifts in the case of a divorce?

Just asking for a friend.

Really? That thing will be under your TV/in your cabinet. It doesn't matter what it looks like.

#40 Edited by EarlessShrimp (1776 posts) -

No. no. nononononononononononononononononononononononono


I think I've made my point.

#41 Posted by Zornack (228 posts) -


#42 Posted by hollitz (1944 posts) -

Be grateful.

#43 Posted by Village_Guy (2743 posts) -

No. That would be dumb.

Besides (in my opinion) the white PS4 is... well, ugly. But I generally don't like white consoles anyway. Except for the white Xbox One, that one is pretty good, but I still like the black one better.

#44 Posted by Corevi (6795 posts) -

That's a dumb idea, it's the same console. If she got you a Xbox One and you wanted a PS4 sure but IT'S THE EXACT SAME.

The white PS4 doesn't come out till September 17th either.

@marcsman: I think that goes the other way. No, actually it is the other way around. Happy wife, happy life.

I see you like to go against correct grammar so who's the real hipster here?

EXACTLY! If you want to dress it up go to DecalGirl and look at all the PS4 skins they have on offer. Or you cna make your own custom decal. The PS4 is amazing for decals because the broad flat surfaces and angles really are great for images.

#49 Posted by syz (257 posts) -

Just go get Destiny and a white controller. Almost the same thing.

#50 Edited by GERALTITUDE (4089 posts) -

It's not often everyone here is so united.

Don't exchange it.
