GameZone lists the top 5 gaming consoles ever created.
Wii instead of PS3, what a joke
I agree, but the Nintendo disagree clan will be here in a moment to offset the agrees... Swap the PS3 in place of the Wii and it's a good list. NES changed my life, PS2 had amazing games... so 1&2 are good for me.
wait for itttt, waitt for itttt...sony defense force activation NOW
I would of put the original Xbox in there instead of the 360 personally but the lack of PS3 being in there anywhere speaks volumes about this article anyways.
I would have thought that the Ps1 would make it, not to mention the Super Nes, not the Xbox 360 or the Wii.
Xbox and no PS3? Blasphemy.
I was waiting for all of you to show up and disagree with my article. Surprisingly, no one is as negative as I would have imagined. I guess the biased fanboys took the day off today. =P In all seriousness, though, glad to read all of your opinions. And while not everyone will agree with my list, I'm certain each of you who commented have your own lists that the rest of the people here don't agree with. I own a PS3 and like it more than the 360 for the most part, but when it comes to overall impact, the PS3 didn't do anything spectacular. It has impressive exclusives, but the PS2 far outshines Sony's current console. As for the Wii's position on this list, let me remind you that Sony imitated the Wii not once, but twice. First with the original SIXAXIS, then with the Move. As for Kinect, we all know Microsoft wanted to get in on the motion gaming craze that the Wii introduced to this generation. As much as some of you may not want to admit it, the Wii is an influential console. Edit: Oh, and just letting you all know that I gave you each an "agree" for sharing your thoughts. Except for the goofball above me who didn't care to elaborate and instead delivered a weak two-word comment with absolutely no substance.
No SNES?! :O I suppose it makes sense considering the competition on that list. Every console in the top 5 either set some industry standard or just reached ungodly amounts of sales. I suppose I'd throw the SNES in over the Genesis or 360... but then over half the list would've been made up of Nintendo! Haha, choosing a top 5 must've been rough.
Believe me, it was. =P I considered making it a top 10 at one point, but I opted out of that because then it would be too big of a list.
The Wii was groundbreaking, but I'm still not a fan of it.
I pretty much agree with this list to some extent. The only games I ever play on my PS3 are the exclusives, whereas my 360 library is way bigger, though I definitely do play the PS3 way more than the Wii.
