Amazon customers have voted the PlayStation 2 as the best console of all time. The Polling took place from August 18 to October 5. The PS2 beat the Wii U in the first round, the PS3 in the second round, the Nintendo 64 in the semifinals and the PSOne in the finals.
The PlayStation 4 lost to the PSOne in the second round. However, it did receive more votes than all Sega consoles combined. The PC was just nine votes shy of making it into the knock-out stages. The Atari 2600 was the oldest console to make it to the knock-out round.
The PlayStation 2 is also the bestselling console of all time with 157.68 million units sold during its lifetime. That is ahead of the DS and original Game Boy, which sold 154.88 million and 118.69 million units, respectively. The PSOne is the second bestselling console with 104.25 million units sold.
