What is the best console design of all time and why it is the Gamecube?
>>
I don't like the handle
>>
it's very iconic. I think the Ouya was Yves' attempt at redesigning the gamecube.
The controller is optimized too. I wonder if there's anything that could add to it to make it better? Maybe voluntary motion controls similar to the Wii U? I wouldn't mind gently steering that controller with Star fox assault
>>
>>266638506
i dont like your handle
>>
>>266638175
Yeah, I probably would give that to the Gamecube. It's a solid design.

The controller could be a lot better though.
>>
>>266638696
I love the controller only thing it needs is an extra shoulder button
>>
>>266638175
A fucking square box is your idea of the best console design? Yeah, I bet their artists spent years hard at work visualising that one.

>Compact design
>Built sturdy
>Even has a damn handle on it
>Awesome library of games
>4 players right out of the box, no multitap needed
>Not quite as powerful as an Xbox, but better than the PS2.

The only big issue with it is not being able to handle DVDs. And even then, the smaller discs allowed for fasted loading times, so it's not even that much of an issue.

It's simple. Why bother making it more complicated than it needs to be?
>>
>>266638872
I would have liked equal sized/shaped face buttons, virtual console games that don't use only A and B are a bitch to play and Megaman Anniversary Collection would be playable with that
>>
gotta love the attachments fit just right with the GC.
My favorite would be probably the NES

I never had a neogeo but the design is pretty sleek too.
>>
>>266638175

In terms of style? I love the way the Genesis looks. Doesn't hurt that the Genesis has a pretty stellar library of action titles/shmups. Definitely not the BEST console overall, but the Genesis easily fits in the top 5 for me.

>I will never have enough disposable income to afford an AES system.

Shit sucks. I guess building a MAME cabinet someday will ease the pain.

Looks like a toaster or a gimmicky waffle maker.

>>266640513

I wouldn't say the WiiU has a shitty design. It's not MASSIVE, it's a pretty simple shape to deal with when making a spot for it on the entertainment system. It's not eye catching like a Genesis or a Gamecube, but it's not repulsive.

Ugly baby's first console

because it fits in your hand perfectly. all the buttons just work. GOAT console and plus cmon the cube design was amazing.

>>266641104
>shape of N64 cartridge

>>266641309
There was an Iwata's Ask about. Keeping the Wii U gamepad the focus point, while the actual hardware is kept in the background. The focus shift from the game box to the controller.

>>266641353
This is true. Except I never owned a PlayStation of any sort. It doesn't stop it from being sleek as fuck.

Ok guys now do me. This is my first vidya in the pic. incoming keks.

>It's a game machine AND it's furniture

10/10 anon. I someday wish to be making the money to put one of those babies in my future basement/bar/game room.

>>266641949
You can make one of this on your own with a very small budget.
>>
I always thought the JP/EU SNES was the best looking console.

The US SNES looked awful and cheap meanwhile, though ironically ended up being the most universal system.
