The Top 7… Things we'll always associate with the seventh console generation

GamesRadar - With the launch of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only weeks away, it's strange to think that the days of the PS3 and 360 are coming to a close. We've had those machines on our entertainment stand for years, y'know? And while games will continue to release on both platforms for a while yet, they'll be but a distant blip in our memories a few years down the road.

We owe a lot to the PS3 and 360. They ushered in an era of HD visuals, mass online gaming, and the transformation of dedicated gaming machines into multimedia hubs. Though the full transition to their next-gen counterparts will inevitably cut off life support for current-gen platforms, it won't sully our memories of the longest-lasting console cycle in gaming's history. A decade from now, halfway through the lifespan of the PS4 and Xbox One, these are the things we'll most vividly recall about the seventh console generation. (Culture, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)
