    What console out of the 6th and 7th generation do you believe to be the least cool looking, if not the down right ugliest? This excludes handhelds and minor/third-party consoles (with the exception of OnLive) and of course we are going by the original design of the console, as opposed to redesigns that may or may not have made the console look more sleek.

    Xbox 360


    Wii


    PlayStation 3


    OnLive


    GameCube


    Dreamcast


    PlayStation 2


    Xbox

    I voted the original Xbox, as the thing looks like a freaking PC, not a console. And the controller, dear god, the controller! Though, I will admit that Dreamcast controller was much worse, and almost voted that due to the controller. The console itself isn't good, but it isn't bad either, so I went with Xbox, as previously stated.

    WTF? The OP states "no redesigns" and posts pics of redesigns.

    SERIOUSLY.



    this is the original PS2. This fat boxy thing.




    My vote goes to Dreamcast, because 1. Never heard of it and 2. WTF is that supposed to be a controller?

    I think we can all agree that the PS3 slim is the most thoroughly shaggable console ever..

    And the gamecube is a hideous console. ITS A BOX.
    but then again so is the dreamcast. and the original xbox.

    I guess I was the only one who liked the Sega Dreamcast. It was the first console that I bought.

    Either the original Xbox or the PS2 could be the worst. The Xbox is larger than a Video player, and it breaks after about a year. The pictures don't really show how big each console is compared to each other. The PS2 looks like some kind of radiator.

    I demand the OP be updated with my pictures.

    Also as a side note, I believe the question is, which is the ugliest, not worst performing.

    I voted Xbox, because while the GameCube is also a box, the Xbox is a HUGE box, with that ugly green colour.

    Also, I'm a bit surprised so many people dislike the Dreamcast. It doesn't look so bad to me. :/

    I voted for the Dreamcast, because of that horribly looking control.

    I'm undecided. The GameCube, Wii and original Xbox are all pretty ugly.

    Edit: Just notied the OnLive. What is this thing ? Wiki tells me something about cloud computing and that it's been already released in the USA. Are there any games ? What was the reception so far ?

    My only problem with the current gen is the weakness to overheating. Most commonly the 360 and it's three red lights, but the PS3 and Wii both do it as well. (I think this is the real reason behind the PS3's rounded top, to stop people like me from stacking Xboxes on top of it.)

    The weakness to overheating doesnt allow for concealing clunky messes of wires inside of a wall unit, as airflow around the systems is preferable. Now, wireless controllers have helped a lot with it, for sure, but you're still stuck with an inefficient use of space if you keep your systems in the open as suggested by their manufacturers.
