Least liked console from each of the big 3 and why

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Least liked console from each of the big 3 and why

Nintendo - Wii. Wasnt a fan of motion controls outside of wii sports. Terrible graphics compared to other 2007 consoles.

Microsoft - Xbox One. Huge,slow and has zero game that interest me, exclusives look average when compared to sony/nintendo

PSX/1 - PS3 - didnt particularly mind this console i thought it was pretty good esp the later models but i think 360 was just a little better. Just shows that sony make great consoles.



Around the Network

Xbox One: The redundant console.

PS4: Very few games that interest me and aren't available elsewhere.

N64: The bulk of its high quality games belong to genres that don't interest me.



PS3, 360 and Wii.
Yeah, last gen was the worse.

Oh I have to say why.

PS3: too expensive, massive reduction of good RPGs.

360: was never too interested on MS but the OG XB at least looked cool and XBO doesn't give people the constant fear of gettng broken.

Wii: massive bail from Nintendo to focus on casuals, completely filled with shovelware.

Im not sure how up-to-date that is, or if its got every title listed.... but theres gotta be like 500-800 games there, in some form of exclusivity.
Theres really nothing that intrests you? Plus alot of them, arnt just small indie or shovelware like titles.

Sony: PS3. It's just a total mess to me
Microsoft: I'll go with the OG Xbox. Xbox never interested me as a PC gamer, but that one made Microsofts focus switch away from PC
Nintendo: The N64. Those early 3D graphics looked horrible back then and look even more horrible now. And a distinct lack of great games to play if you remove the handful of really good ones.



Around the Network

Nintendo: 1st. WiiU, 2nd. Wii
Sony: 1st Vita, 2nd PS3.
Microsoft: 1st Xbox One, 2nd Xbox.

WiiU is just... ugh. Gamepad was always out of battery whenever you came back to the console and it lacked games.

Wii: woefully underpowered and motion controls should be an option not the main philosophy behind a console. It lacked good third party support and some 1st party franchises took missteps on the Wii. (Paper Mario, Mario Party).

Vita: Honestly if this thing had actually sold it would have been great, unfortunately it's support disappeared after a couple of years. I like the Vita, it just didn't get the support.

PS3: It's ok, but it was a chore to use as it approached the end of it's life in my opinion. It just felt so outdated and slow, especially on the OS trying to load the trophy list, or the PlayStation Store that got slower and slower with every update. The PS4 now doesn't feel nearly as dated and terrible to use as the PS3 did in 2012.

Xbox One: The OS is really unintuitive imo, I think it's changed a few times I used it in 2018. It was really annoying to find your way around the system. The games are ok but as a console it's the weakest of the three and considering I can play all it's games on PC I have little use for it. I essentially bought one as a stopgap until I could get a new GPU and upgrade my brothers PC so we could play Forza Horizon.

Xbox: Had some problems for a first attempt. Duke controller was massive and not good to use, S controller was fine to use but the wires always seemed to come loose inside over time and intermittently disconnect when you moved them. The box itself was also massive. It had some good exclusive console titles though, like Kotor, Blinx, Quantum Redshift, Phantom Crash. It's interesting library, 4 controller ports and generally superior third party versions made it a good console.



LTD Sales Predictions: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m
2019 Sales : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m
2020 Sales: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

ps3: expensive, slow and PSN in particular was awful

Wii U: Nintendo's weakest software lineup and the Gamepad was just plain old stupid

Xbox One: Just god awful exclusive lineup, very disappointing. Only console I have ever sold mid generation, and I have owned 15+ consoles

I am a bit shocked at how many are listing the Wii. I get the motion controls were strange. But between Metroid Prime Trilogy, Galaxy 1 & 2, Xenoblade, Skyward, Twilight and a few others.. I thought the Wii was pretty awesome. Very good games. Pikmin was way better with motion controls.

For Sony, PS4, hands down. Low powered CPU, recycled last gen games, and just overall bad performance, (hence PS4 pro)
For Microsoft, Xbox One. Always on, always watching kinect. The fact they tried it.
For Nintendo, N64. I didn't grow up with Nintendo consoles. I don't like the Gamecube or N64 controllers, but the graphics on the N64 are worse than Gamecube. Also, cartridges, which meant worse sound than the PS1.

Really no different than both the Xbox One and the Switch. Right?! I'm also confused as to the overall bad performance. How was the vanilla PS4 performing poorly?

Nintendo: Wii U. Actually a close call between this and (please don't hurt me) the Gamecube, as both systems had an 18-month spell with tons of great games, and then absolutely nothing. However, the Gamecube was at least a well-designed system that was never going to have any prayer of competing against the juggernaut that was the PS2; by contrast, from a pure hardware design standpoint the Wii U may well be the worst console ever produced by a major manufacturer. (I won't deny that the Wii was weak for the era and had a major shovelware problem, but I just have too many fond memories of playing it with friends and family to rank it below the Wii U or GC)

Sony: PS3. Too expensive, lacked decent exclusives until near the end of its lifespan, and too many of its multi-platform releases looked and/or ran worse than their 360 counterparts. That said, my least favourite Sony gaming system overall would actually be the Vita, as there were just so many bone-headed decisions that completely squandered the system's potential.

Microsoft: Xbox OG. A solid first effort from the company, but in retrospect its library was kinda undistinguished outside of Halo 1 & 2 and a few other games, and far too many of its multiplats were just minimally-upgraded PS2 ports (though to be fair, the Gamecube had the same problem). Xbox One could have been a LOT better, but it had a few things that came along later (including back-compatibility and the Game Pass) and put it above the original.
