Ugliest console - 6th and 7th generation

Post by Lightning » Thu Aug 05, 2010 4:21 am

What console out of the 6th and 7th generation do you believe to be the least cool looking, if not the down right ugliest? This excludes handhelds and minor/third-party consoles (with the exception of OnLive) and of course we are going by the original design of the console, as opposed to redesigns that may or may not have made the console look more sleek.

Xbox by a country mile.

The M2, for the record, is the most beautiful console ever created ever.

As much as I like the original XBOX, it wasn't exactly a beauty to behold, ha.

PS, what the hell is "OnLive"?

The original Xbox is such a big bulky eyesore.
Most wanted - Eye of Typhoon, 3DO Magazines issues #14 & #15, Pro Stadium, Defcon 5

I just noticed that the M2 isn't that gigantic computer thing in the background, it's the small thing that is hardly noticeable in the picture, lol.


And yeah, I think it's pretty obvious that Xbox won this by a longshot.


@Austin
You haven't heard of OnLive? It's a startup company that is releasing their first console this upcoming Winter. It's only available in the USA.

It's doing something that has never been done before. They stream games from their headquarters to your PC, which then connects to their console via a connection cord, and then you can play them on your TV. I'm a beta tester of the service myself, it's kind of stupid, since they only got like 7 games, but one of them is sort of fun (not really) Unreal Tournament 3. Once they add Dragon Age: Origins and Metro 2033, like they claim they are going to do, then it should get interesting. The price for the service is outrageous though. Since you have to pay a monthly fee for the service and you have to pay money to rent the games (not buy), and they remove their games after 3 years (or atleast claim they will)

I'm not even sure where my 360 is, but the fact that it's in the box actually improves things in its favor.

A little OT, but OnLive sounds like it's going to be an epic failure.
