Wii Warm Up: To Bedazzle or not to Bedazzle

Yesterday we showed you the major award given to a Smash Bros. tournament winner: a Wii covered in Swarovski crystals, which formed the images of Mario and Bowser. It was obviously worth a pile of money, and has value as a collectors' item on top of the value of all the crystals and the work put into it. But did it look good?

The comments on that post mostly tended toward calling it tacky, but we thought it would be worth blinging bringing it up in our daily discussion thread and officially soliciting your opinions. Can adding sparkly stuff to your console be an improvement? Is a crystal-covered system a conversation piece, or a ... behind-the-back conversation piece?
