    Seen this on Gaf and decided to try it out here.

    Had a hard-time deciding on a console but the Game Boy Micro is a winner for me.

    Oh and the Gamecube looked okay on the outside but the PCB, oh my god!

    The Wii because it is the exact shape of an SD card

    N64 looked pretty cool

    The DSi XL because it's bigger than God

    Jaguar CD cause it looks like a toilet

    IMO by far!!!

    As a close second I would say the Super Famicom (SNES PAL).

    Nothing speaks "console" to me more than the Dreamcast and the PS2 (both the FAT and the SLIM editions). I mean, look at them. The Dreamcast was the pinnacle of the "Old" era - grey boxes you put infront of the TV, simplistic in design but pretty at the same time. Concrete and to the point, without any fireworks. The PS2 on the otherhand was like the monolith from "The Space Odyssey", a sign of what's to come - futuristic style looking almost like a big black radiator, the mix of blue and black... gorgeous.

    My uncle has one and it's not that sexy. It looks like a cheap CD player or something.

    I forgot to mention handhelds... and I have a few favourites in that department.

    [​IMG]
    Say what you will - the original GBA was way more awesome than the SP, despite the lack of a backlight that caused the console to be hard to play on even when sitting on the face of the sun... but at the end of the day, it re-defined the way we play nowadays, making a clear statement - "landscape is cooler than portrait".

    [​IMG]
    GBC... My first Gameboy... Perhaps the "Pocket" was prettier, but this one was COLOUR, plus it fitted nicely in your hands... a real classic beast.

    [​IMG]
    Ooooh, the classic N-Gage... look at the carbon-like finish, look at that poetry of a d-pad... The orange backlight looked uber awesome aswell. It felt as if it was sculped to fit in your hands and it featured all the gadgets you could imagine, well, minus the camera but those weren't popular back then. And, it was a phone! How cool is that? If only it had a landscape screen, if only the "A" and "B" buttons weren't like standard phone ones but like GameBoy ones, if only the games weren't on MMC cards but rather on a dedicated cartridge... this could've been big. Such a shame... Even more of a shame since someone stole mine when I was traveling with a few of my friends back in the day. I loved this phone so much... I need a new one.

    Agreed.
    My very first handheld was an Atomic Purple GBC (Along with Pokémon Yellow.)
    Nowadays, I don't have either of them anymore.
    But I don't mind, because I have a Gameboy Pocket with Pokémon Red and Green.
    Honestly, I prefer playing them on a Gameboy Pocket than on a Gameboy Color.
    (And I think Red/Green/Blue are better than Yellow.)

    The screen on the Gameboy Pocket is bigger, and color doesn't matter much to me since all I got is Pokémon Red and Green.
    If I want to play them in color, I got my GBA SP, which I think looks (and functions) better than the original GBA.
    Though I totally agree about the landscape part.

    Also, the second version of the Pocket is better than the first version.
    This is because the fist version doesn't have a power LED.

    If I were to pick the best out of all pockets then I'd probably choose the Japan-Exclusive Game Boy Light. Go backlights, playing under the covers as a kid must've been priceless for all those lucky japanese kids... I envy them.

    Oh mai gawd that Micro. Despite the fact that the revision seemed silly and unnecessary at the time, and to me, it kind of still is, the little handheld is undeniably a sexy machine. Nothing comes to mind when I try to think of a sleeker, better looking, game console than the GB Micro. I wish it had been more popular so that I would have an easier time getting my hands on one today.

    None of these are "sexy" aside from the Gameboy Micro.

    That GBM is pretty sweet, but I still prefer my good ol' Aqua Blue 3DS. ;)

    That's the "bondage" kind of sexy.

    GB micro, by far.

    Though I do like the look of the fat PS2s.

    It looks real sturdy but looks can deceive since it's as light as a NES.
    Atleast mine is without a HDD in it lol.
