Whether it's improved performance, a space-saving refit, or lower prices, almost every major console has seen its lifespan enriched via redesign. Here's a look back at some of the machines that managed to win another season of our fickle favor, simply by dropping an SKU size or two (PS2, PS3, PSP, Retro, Wii, Xbox 360)
