What is the sexiest console ever made?

Fresh off E3 2013: All the next generation consoles are now finally revealed — physically, Sony being the last remaining (PS4) as gamers anxiously waited to see what the console that will grace their living rooms looked like. But after all the jokes about the “ugliness” and size of the Xbox One, revealed just 3 weeks earlier inspired me to write this article, What is the sexiest video game console ever made?

Here’s a collage showcasing the history of consoles to jog your memory visually, note that all consoles ever made are not present, I focused on the popular or consoles that had their place in history good or bad. I also did not include the “slim” versions either, something to consider:

PS3 "Fatty" BC editions
she had the curves, the brains, and that ohh so sexy chrome on black ebony shine that made you just want to pick up a DS3 and push her buttons all day long.

Dreamcast <3 , ps1, and Sega Saturn

Sorry I liked them thin, but now I'm married, I don't know anymore. Yea other consoles are thin but I don't believe in makeovers, original is my thing.....

What are we talking about again?

N64 just looked so high teck when it came out

AliTheSnake11194d ago

The original Playstation 2. Definitely .

ps2 thin for me.. so dang sexy

pixelsword1194d ago

I don't equivocate "console" with "sexy"; but the best looking console is probably the "fat" PS3, then the Neo-Geo to me.

But you can stick your.... In a NES

ScubbaSteve1194d ago (Edited 1194d ago )

You'd have to blow the NES first, before sticking your erm, games in.

JoGam1194d ago

The Vita is the sexist console ever made.

eclectified1194d ago

@tracyllrkn: Handheld what? I'm not gonna click disagree, but IMO, a handheld console is still a console.

As for the OT, the sexiest console ever made was the original NES. The cartridges fit inside the console behind a nice door, as opposed to sticking out of the top like the SNES, Genesis and N64 that followed.

The shape wasn't perfectly rectangle, so it was interesting to look at, but not so interesting that it looked like it didn't belong(I'm looking at you Game Cube!)

Of course, it wasn't all sex appeal. The NES had the least sexy controller of all time. See: Nintendo thumb

I personally like the PS4 design. Hated it at first but really grew on me. At first I thought the original PS3 looked like a refrigerator when standing up.

Boody-Bandit1194d ago (Edited 1194d ago )

I agree with one exception.
I liked the PS4 design the second the camera panned around it.

My runner up would be the N64.
I loved the way that looked the first time I saw it. Very sleek and ahead of it's time.

3rd would be the original PS3 fatty. Simply schmexy.

We have come a long way since Atari.
Anyone remember what those looked like?

I sure do and own a 2600, a 5200 and a 7800. I am a young gamer that admires history of my favorite hobby.

Have you ever noticed when the Wii has edges the ps3 & xbox360 has curves and when wiiU has curves ps4 and xbox one have edges?

GreenRanger1194d ago

PS3 Slim, Xbox 360 Slim, 3DS XL and PS Vita.

RiPPn1194d ago

I second the Vita. Beautiful piece of hardware!

LOL_WUT1194d ago

The ps3 slim looked really bad IMO ;)

The 60 GB ps3 holds the top spot

SpideySpeakz1194d ago (Edited 1194d ago )

I'm sorry, but the RetroN 5 sexy there is - still haven't come out yet.

EDIT: Look at her, she's beautiful. http://operationrainfall.co...

ChozenWoan1194d ago

that does look sexy, and it's got the best of 80's & 90's gaming all in one... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

tristanwerbe1194d ago

Probably the Halo 4 Xbox 360 those are really really cool looking and sleek

Starbucks_Fan1194d ago

My Star Wars 360> yours.

R2D2 sound FTW

NegativeCreepWA1194d ago

I was actually hoping my 360 would break to have an excuse too buy one.

nukeitall1194d ago

4. Commodore 64

6. Xbox
7. Sega Master system
8. Phillips CDI
9. SNES-Super famicom
10. Virtual Boy

Unhonorable Mention: Sega CD, Turbo Graphics 16, Goldstar 3DO, PS4, PS1, PS3 Slim,

tristanwerbe1194d ago

That is pretty much how I feel

hollabox1193d ago (Edited 1193d ago )

Ah the disagrees, well I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think my ugliest consoles are spot on with Atari consoles taking the top spot followed by Apple Pippin and the Commodore 64.

NES and Xbox are just one giant box, Sega Masters system looks like a ugly slim DVD player. Phillips CDI is plain,the SNES-Super Famicom, and Virtual Boy both look like robot heads from the movie Short Circuit.

Unhonorable mentions, the first Sega CD addon looked bad, Turbo Graphics 16 = Slim generic DVD player, Goldstar 3DO is much like the Xbox and NES, just an giant box. The PS4 looks similar to the Wii console with two tone blacks and a split down the middle breaking up the design. I like the side view, but the front view is hideous with the split and two tone black.

PS1 looked too cheap and 80's Japanese for my taste. PS3 Slim looks pretty dam ugly on my TV stand, sticks out like an sore thumb. The PS3 Slim probably belongs in my top 10 ugliest but I don't know which console to take out.

gamerben1193d ago

The PC Engine and Turbo Duo actually looked really good.

The original Turbo Grafx 16 on the other hand looked like a mess.

hollabox1193d ago (Edited 1193d ago )

My bad, 3. should be PC Engine and PCFX. The PC Engine Duo is not bad looking after checking my links. Here's the one I meant to be number 3: http://www.pcenginefx.com/P...
