Computer accessory manufacturer NZXT is plans to produce a limited edition version of its Phantom computer case — in pink.
This began as an April fools joke when NZXT put out a press release where the Marketing Manager of the firm, Victoria Chiang, argued that “Gamer Guys should embrace the bright pink craze knowing that the women in their life will be so much more accepting of marathon gaming sessions if they have a fabulous rig to play on”.
Chiang continued, stating that “Only a real man is manly enough to have a computer case that matches his salmon pastel shirt!”
The response to this joke was so positive that NZXT decided that the demand was there to make their Phantom case line pretty in pink, if only for a limited run. They brought along a sample to Computex, but there is no details yet on pricing or availability.
