25 greatest consoles IGN

http://gear.ign.com/dor/articles/101...15_090209.html

the PS3 comes in at 15 and the Xbox not the 360 but the original Xbox is number 11. how does that happen? i mean the PS3 is clearly better than Xbox but if you look at it i guess the Xbox did give us new stuff but to put the Xbox on there for Halo is LAME to the max PS3 gave us Uncharted lol

10. Wii
9. N64
8. Dreamcast
7. Playstation
6. Xbox 360
5. Sega Genisis
4. Super Nintendo
3. Playstation 2
2.Atari 2600
1. NES (to be suspected)

they dont have 5-1 out yet so we will have to wait but im sure the PS2 is on there with the NES and the Atari 2600. maybe the SNES? then idk what else it would be but those are my guesses

Based on their description I can honestly understand the PS3 and 360 being low but they only put the PS3 low. Give me a break. For one if your doing it by impact per generation, PS3 has alot more impact this generation, while its not as big of an impact as most consoles, what exactly is the 360 doing to have a history impact?

That and they put Xbox 1 o nther. While its impact as MS enter the console wars, it did absolutely nothing else, if anything it shouldnt be on the list at all. The only other thing it did was bring subscription based online gaming...at which no other company wants to rip off its consumers so its extinct elsewhere. It did nothing. It had a terrible lineup of games, fanboy or not, it ripped off things from the Dreamcast and PS2, and it had nothing new but hard drive support that Ms decided to drop anyways. Then you say "ps2 was in the same era" and how is it even considered?

Xbox 360 at number 6 is just astonishingly stupid. Number one better be PS2, it had the greatest impact of all time even with Sega and Nintendo past times. It will be PS2 as N64 is already been placed.

yeah i was thinking that the NES or SNES would be number one and the PS2 would be 2 or 3 but they had Xbox original on their mainly for Xbox Live which really is a good thing i mean with out that we would not have the PSN that we have today garunteed. i agree what did the 360 i mean the PS3 is better with games and innovation

EDIT:

it seems like their only reasoning behind the 360 is that it was out before the PS3 because they say it was the first for HD gaming and to come with a wireless controller out of the box and Xbox Live again so basically because ti was first this gen is why

So the 360 is above the PSX which is the reason why devs actually moved to CD based format? This list is BS and the DC should also be above the 360 because it is the console that brought online play to consoles and the Genesis had a download service for games back int he day.Yes the 360 was the first HD console on the market,but it still uses DVD9 discs and it's controllers don't even use ion batteries and the hardware failure rate is high.

yeah i totally agree with you Darth i mean hey are still using DVD and everything about PS3 is new and advanced and the 360 just uses tech that was found in the last generation of consoles just made wireless built in to the console instead of needing an adapter for it

There list is wrong then. Technicly speaking the PS2 was the first into the HD era, if you use component cables on the PS2 it will output to 720p which is HD. If you want to say 1080 then thats wrong too, MS didnt push 1080 until the PS3 came out fully supporting it with their games. You know Halo 3 isnt even 720... If you need proof then read interviews about the God of War collection, he clearly states it was already developed for HD formats, just held back to 720, so it was easy to port it to PS3. Let alone God of War 2 and Gran Turisom along with so many others were in 720.

I also think Sega Genesis, N64, and NES did a ton all of them should be in the top 5. Dreamcast, while it failed, should be on there too, but in the top 10? It friggin failed for crying out loud.

I can understand why, the 360 has nearly double the install base in america and was firing
on all cylinders (and RROD'ing) while the PS3 was just launching.

I wouldnt take the list to heart though, they rated the PS3 the best winner of 2008
in terms of games.

I think the ranking of the Dreamcast alone destroys any credibility the author had at all for this list. Do I think PS3 should be in top ten? no, but they miss fired so many consoles then put Dreamcast in top 10? Its like they were in the office and just said "25 consoles off the top of your head...GO!"

Genesis PS2 and NES all in top 5 and well deserving. I guess if you have failing consoles like the Atari and Dreamcast makes you amazing...lol

bull**** list, PS3 and the 360 should be together,IMO ps3 should be higher, I agree with NES in first,IMO Sega Megadrive should be in second with the psone in third.
