On this page I aim to document as precisely as I can the colors used on a selection of video game consoles. To insure accuracy:
- The color must be identified using a physical color deck (and never a computer screen!) of a standard color matching system such as RAL or Pantone.
- Identification is performed under daylight.
Warning: All information provided on this page comes without warranty of any kind, expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.

Body grayClose match:
Pantone 421 C
D-Pad grayClose match:
Pantone 425 C
Button zone grayClose match:
Pantone 424 C
Note: I found the grays very difficult to match. The pantone colors I give seem very close, but I am not entirely satisfied and therefore label them as close matches
I have the following tools and references:
- RAL classc K5 color deck
- Pantone plus series, formula guide, coated.
