    Because we say "une console".
    Some people says for exemple "Le GameBoy" but it hurst my ear.
    i think we use to say "Le CD-i Philips", "le Videopac", "le MegaCD", "le MultiMega" for the few male one.

    In my opinion, these sound better with "la" instead of "le".
    I clearly remember hearing "la CD-i" or "la Mega CD" before.
