I have never owned all those consoles so can't really say, but it is good to see two Sony consoles in the top 5.

Is the SNES out of date for the list.

Anyway, good to see two Nintendo consoles in the Top 5! The X360 is way overrated!!!

I've owned all those. Nice to see the DC in there but I think the GC is too high...

The only other main players that didn't make the cut would be Saturn, PSP, Vita, 3DS and Gizmondo, though, I think...

Yes. Maths not your strong point? 20 years would mean anything from 1993 onwards...

As Edge is so far up its own backside I wouldn't even trust it to pronounce on their own kidneys, let alone anything else.

Regards

It's not a bad list. I don't think Xbox should be there at all. The Xbox 360 should be at No. 10 rather than No. 2.

The Nintendo consoles could be higher, but there are 4 of them; which is nice!

I would move the PS3 and Wii above the Gamecube and DS Lite and I have never owned the original Xbox, so don't know about that. Apart from that, not too bad a list.

The Dreamcast to consoles is what Colin Baker was to Dr Who.
Never got a fair chance.

No Atari 2600 or Sega Saturn For a console released in 1977 to produce graphics like this the Atari was amazing machine

The Xbox 360 and PS2 had terrible build quality issues to be considered "Great" consoles IMO.

Disagree big time the Super Nintendo by far for me.

I agree with PS2 being at number one. Awesome console, even though it destroyed my beloved Dreamcast, it was (almost) worth it.

Generally agree although PS3 should be higher. Free console multiplayer and it helped get the bluray market going just as the PS2 helped the DVD market.

Original Xbox should be there. It introduced Xbox Live which revolutionised console online connectivity.

I agree with the list mostly but if you are going to rate PS2 as the best and PS1 at 3, then surely the real number one should the launch model PS3 as that had a PS1/2 and 3 built into one box

PS3 should at least be in the PS1 slot as it still plays PS1 and 3 games

The Dreamcast had online play even though it was through a 33.6k modem

Personally, I'd juggle things around a little bit.

10. Dreamcast
9. GameCube
8. DS lite
7. Xbox
6. Wii
5. Xbox 360
4. PlayStation 3
3. Nintendo 64
2. PlayStation
1. PlayStation 2

Although, I could perhaps be persuaded to swap the PS3 and 360 around.

I'd have put the Dreamcast above the Xbox, but yeah.

The intro for the PS1 to was amazing, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekqYhP8PhMg

Great memories, I'd love to see it on PS4 just like that.

But it was 'released' before 1993. Clue is in the title, as it were...

Looks about exactly right. In particular, the top three choices should be indisputable. The only real problem is that Gamecube is perhaps a bit too high.

PsOne #1 for me, it was revolutionary. Having it behind xbox 360 is nooby.

Bah. I dont think many of them are as good as the Super NES.

The past 20 years havent been great for consoles. If I was to take one I really loved, it would be the original Playstation.

It's very subjective really, for me it would be:

5. Playstation 2
4. Xbox 360
3. Nintendo 64
2. Playstation 3
1. PlayStation

If I could have the SNES would be number 1 as that was my favourite.
