    why are all console female?
    Really, I mean we say LA NES, LA SNES, LA Nintendo 64, LA Gamecube, LA Wii, LA WII U, LA Switch, LA Playstation, LA Xbox, why?

    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.
