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?

Knowing  your history

Video Game Consoles have been around since the 1970’s and since then we’ve seen 8 generations of them and within that a plethora of consoles — 43+ of all  colors, shapes and sizes. The Magnavox Odyssey known as the first “true” video game console birthed in 1972 actually looked pretty sleek  featuring a slim look accompanied with its white, black and burgundy finish — not bad! I guess graphics come and go but sexy is forever.

Defining Your Sexy

What goes into making a console sexy anyway?  Is it the shape? Is it the color? Size? Texture Material? Does the name make you view a console in a certain light? Meaning whether consciously or subconsciously if a console has a sexy name does a sexy looking console become even sexier? A combination of all the above?

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:

 

From left to right, top to bottom:

  • Magnavox Odyssey
  • Atari 2600
  • Colecovision
  • Atari 5200
  • Nintendo
  • Sega Master System
  • Sega Genesis
  • Super Nintendo
  • Turbo Graphx 16
  • Neo Geo
  • Atari Jaguar
  • Sega Saturn
  • Sony PlayStation
  • Nintendo 64
  • Sega Dreamcast
  • Sony PlayStation 2
  • Nintendo Gamecube
  • Microsoft Xbox
  • Nintendo Wii
  • Microsoft Xbox 360
  • Sony PlayStation 3
  • Nintendo Wii U
  • Microsoft Xbox One
  • Sony PlayStation 4

As I look upon these consoles Man! It’s Crazy that the last console to show itself, PS4 may be the best looking console ever made. I want to see it up close and personal but it  definitely could end up in my top 3 — if not #1. Actually aside from the first PlayStation Sony has done a pretty good job in the sexy category, the PS2 was a pretty good looking console and may be in my top 3 as well. That Atari 2600 is pretty sick too! With the woodgrain finish; unique in that area. Momma I can’t choose!

But I’m leaning more to the Sega Genesis, that console looked the part, it had a futuristic and sleek look that was definitely IMO the best of its time. I was proud to show off that console to friends and family. I love the placement of all the necessary buttons — probably one of the few if not the only console that had a dedicated volume button for your headphones! The color — (looks like you) can’t go wrong with black, just something about that console stands out to me more than the others and may just be the sexiest console ever made.

What do you think is the sexiest console ever made? CCU wants to hear from  you.

    Chrome Gamecube with an LCD screen and a DVD/CD player attached. It was beautiful. :’)

  6. Xbox One and the fat PS3 (all PS3’s after that become consecutively cheaper plastic toys).
    The Panasonic Q GC was indeed very sexy.
