This is mainly about consoles, not portable systems.
Yes, to a point. It has to be structurally sound and have a good design for airflow. Other than that, not too much. It's not like I'm looking at it constantly.
It really comes down to space in my opinion - I don't have a particularly large area to place entertainment products, including my TV, so something like a PS3 is just out of the question.
I can easily overlook a bad-looking console, just because it's not what I'll be looking at, and will be, for the most part, out of view, but something that is good eye-candy is definitely appreciated.
No, I don't really mind if it's ugly, if it looks good then it's just another plus.
The more compact, the better. Big bulky systems aren't that great to look at, but it's mostly a space issue.
As long it's not big and bulky, I'm fine with it.
When it comes to actual gaming consoles that are hooked up to a TV and such, aesthetics have a certain degree of motivation for me: for functional purposes, though. Examples include maybe airflow with the new 360: it has vents every which way on it, therefore reducing overheating and RROD. Also, aesthetics can include part size, such as how the new PS3 slim is able to run on less electricity.
All in all, yes - to a certain degree.
the only time I care about look if it's just a giant oddly coloured box, a uncomfortable, or weird controller [old school ps3 boomerang comes to mind], or if it's a hand held then I think about appearances.
No, I dont care much as long as i dont have a shit with a disc slot connected to my tv.
I care if it works and isn't an Xbox personally.
As long as it isn't like horrible looking or clash too much with most of my systems. I am fine with it.
Not at all, as long as the general shape is rectangular so it will fit into shelves. The Gamecube was the only console that I had to stow away every time.
the most important thing to me is that it matches my entertainment center. white systems look ugly all the systems should be dark colors and other then that i dont care how big or what the shape of the system is.
I dont care much either but if it looks cool, then its better but not a big deal.
Unless if its like a butt shape and you insert the disc on the crack.
I don't really care, but I would prefer if more consoles were flat so you could stack another on top. (Although that doesn't sound like a good idea with all the heat they put out these days/
I don't really but don't want them to be huge. Stacking consoles on top of each other is not so good for the system It causes heat issues.
I don't really mind what the system itself looks like, as long as it isn't a pain in the arse to find space for it under my TV. some consoles with particularly ridiculous designs (the PS3 and original Xbox come to mind) are hard to fit underneath my TV, usually if I have any other consoles under there, too.
I don't care, but it would be easy if all consoles where the same size, would be easier to stack them under the TV
I don't really mind how the console looks like, more on the controllers for some reason
As long as it's not an eyesore in my room it can stay.
