I've always kind of felt there are people out there who just want their game to be "different". If it came with black trim, they would want it to be chrome. If it came with chrome, they would want it to be colored. I don't mind some of these though. As long as the color is coordinating with the artwork, I rarely have a negative reaction towards it. Having said that, with all the ways to spend money in this hobby, I've never seen an example where I thought it was money well spent.
