Still smirk at the thought of this sometimes.

I still can't work out why the game isn't bundled with it. The claim that they want people to be able to choose between the vanilla game, the special edition and legendary edition doesn't ring true to me. I suspect that a bundled game deosn't count in software sales, and they want it to be TEH BIGEST GAEM EVAR!

I may be wrong though.

Nah; late '70s consoles, or the US redesign of the SNES.

Yes, even though the buttons where purple.

Yeah, it has to be to do with sales figures. I was seriously considering getting one (at a guess, now that there has been the general price cut, it would cost me at most £180 + my current console and a couple of other bits and bobs I have to trade in) but I'm rethinking it now. Not because of how it looks - I'm pretty okay with it in a Halo geek kind of way - but it's still another five or six games that I could buy instead.

What about that special edition N64 that had it's side hideously distended in the shape of Pikachu? Fecking horrid, that was.

The H3 360 is pretty bad, but to be fair the 360 wasn't the prettiest lump of plastic to start with...

I think that Halo console looks good!

There were Master Chief and Arbiter pad pictures going around though weren't there? They were awful.

Halo 3 360 is the hands down winner of ugliest console, taking a decent looking console then throwing up over it and certain people are desperate to get their hands on it.

Mentions no names *cough*Lutz*cough*

Those pads are for 6 years olds aren't they?! Jesus Christ...

It's just a painted up 360, not that bad. I have to agree with Retroid, it really is the US SNES.

American SNES by a mile, which was a shame as the Super Famicom is, IMO, the prettiest

Yup, US Snes, followed by the PS3.

I'm not sure, I think it has quite a monolithic aesthetic to it. I wouldn't call it pretty, but I don't find it hideous

The PS2 is monolithic. The Xbox is fanheaterific.

PS3 is by far the 'sexiest' of them all (handhelds not included).

The Saturn, as much as I love the machine, wasn't exactly lovly. Espeically the "grey buttons" version.

And the Halo 3 360 is lover-lee!

As great a time as I've had with my old Fat PS2, it's a freak of nature, looks wise.

I think the first "proper" console I owned takes some beating...

The Acetronic MPU 1000

Dig that crazy 8-track style cartridge system, baby!

Bah, they're just ripping off the 2600 carts with that design. Speaking of which, I reckon the 2600 is uglier, either the original or the Jr version (I can't decide which of those is the worst).

My first console was this thing - well, if you can count it seeing as it didn't take carts.
