From the PlayStation 3 and the Game Boy Advance to the Super Nintendo and the Xbox 360, 411's Justin Weinblatt counts down the most successful video game consoles of all time!
If they're just looking at levels of overall success, then why is the PS1 so far down? it should be right behind the PS2.
hahah I liked the end
Why is the image an Xbox 360, when it should be a Playstation 2..
Because Trollmask posted it.
Did a 15-year-old write this article? The iPhone is #1? Nice fakeout, but the 360 and PS3 are on the list? The Game Boy SP, not the original Game Boy is there? Gimme a break...
WTF where the hell is Virtual Boy? And nice pictures at the end.
Virtual Boy 4evaaaaa! I think it sold hundreds of trillions.
Quote from the article 'First of all, the PS3 is in last place, in terms of units of hardware. In particular, the PS3 has not fared well in America, which is currently the most important market in gaming. Because of this, Sony also lags in software sales. Modern Warfare 2 has sold 11.5 million copies for the X-Box 360, and only 8.5 million copies for PS3' Someone tell the author that gamers play games not sales @HydraFFX according to the author "What makes a system successful? A combination of factors. A list of the top selling consoles would be boring, so I'm also going to factor in quality of software, impact on the industry, and a healthy dose of my own opinion. For this list, I'm only counting consoles released post Nintendo" Bluray had the biggest impact on the industry this gen, and PS3 has many AAA exclusives and better game variety.
Read the title of the article, it doesn't matter what gamers play, this is about the sales. EDIT: That quote you just gave, is the exact reason why the author had to explain himself in saying why the PS3 made the 8th spot. Also while Bluray had a good impact on gaming this gen, the number impact would easily have been XBL, online gaming really kicked off this gen, look at what PSN has become because of XBL.
Read the article, the guy isn't basing this article on sales at all otherwise the PSP and NES would be right next to eachother. Just another top 10 crap opinion article.
Ipod up there? What a joke.............
Looks like someone closed the article as soon as they saw that. Nearly did that myself. Epic plot twist.
I probably would have killed someone if the Ipod was actually #1. Seriously, there would be blood.
where is the Genesis? horrible article is horrible. made no sense.
and the N64.
ill like too no why the iPhone is on that list
For the most part the list was fine but if you want to rank it by sales it would look like this: 10. Xbox 360 9. SNES 8. PSP 7. NES 6. Wii 5. Gameboy Advance 4. Playstation 3. Gameboy 2. Nintendo DS 1. PS2
Cool. As soon as the ps3 passes the 360 all sony's consoles will be in the top 10. Assuming it manages this feat before the 3ds comes out.
This is joke, right? PSX on the ninth place!
yeah what a joke i dont mein for sales but the original playstation should been #1 the first system ever to reach 100 million sold and PS2 is up there as the greatest system ever made
I regret giving this site a hit
PS1 #9? How can the Wii and 360 be ahead of PS1? If it wasn't for the PS1 we wouldn't have great franchises like Tekken, Resident Evil, GTA, GT, MGS, and so on. I respect others opinions but come on now; PS1 deserves to be in the top 5.
1st the 360, ps3 and wii hawe not made as much of a mark on the gaming industry than ten other consoles, so its stupid to put them on thelist at all 2nd why are the iphone and the ds on the list, is this guy seriously considering those 2 misurable pieches of sh** as good consoles 3rd the list should look something like this: 1. ps1(the first console targeted at mature gamers it brought m rated games a true gaming controler, adwanced, cinemetics, extended voice acting, detailed music, plus it gawe birth to game series you still play today like grand turismo, medal of honor, siphon filter, resident ewil, gta, metal gear solid, etc and who could forget games like final fantasy 7...) 2. the ps2(it continiued with bringing adwanced infra red media for use of games, free online play, games looked incredible on the emotion engine and spawned game series like rachet and clark, god of war, devil may cry, siren, as well as hawing 5 games from the best 10 games of all time list: metal gear solid3, final fantasy10, god of war2, shadow of the colosis, and gta san andreas) 3. the nes(the great 8bit pioner of the gaming industry, it reviwed the home gaming industry from atary, games: super mario bros2, legend of zelda, caslovenia, punch out, 4. the nintendo 46(adwanced 3d shapes benefited games like mariokart46, super mario46, legend of zelda: oot,... only its poor medium is holding it back from the 2nd place) 5. sega genisis 6.... ... . se an amater like me did a better(unfinished)list xD
The PS2 was not number 1. What the heck?!?
Uh, yes it was. Keep reading.
