    I dont understand this new RGB Lighting phase. I guess its personal preference, but rather than have light projected onto your desk for aesthetic reasons only, why not implement some kind of "ambi-light"-esque tech? Much more immersive experience when the screen to wall (behind monitor) transition isn't as sharp. Particularly with the new thinner bezel monitors.

    This might actually help to improve the playing experience rather than be purely a design choice.

    Philips own the patent on ambient light tech
