Dreamcast. PS3 in close second.

Can you hear it bouncing when you see it? :D

Mine would have to either by the GC because I spent so many years playing on that system or else the Neo Geo Pocket Color because as a handheld it just sounded so happy and bouncy on startup, really gets you in the mood for some Sonic Pocket Adventure, great little handheld if ye never had the pleasure.

I love the GameCube one. It's just too iconic.



I've not ever thought much about this. I'll have to kick it around some. Off the top of my head, I'm thinking it might be Sega Saturn.

Though I don't think I'd vote for any XBox in the OP's poll, I do think its worth noting that I've always really liked the XB green color. When I fire up an Xbox and see that logo and the bright green color, my gaming senses get rolling, and my game mode turns on automatically.

all 3 of them are iconic from my days of smash, the Samurai one being that time you got 3 mates around to all hold your Z buttons before a good session of smash is going down.

The OG Xbox logo and startup made the system seem more powerful than the rivals in my mind, it seemed more heavy duty (and not just because the console doubled as a doorstop) but the deep rumbling green heart inside the Xbox logo to be greeted by that menu which sounded like the ocean along with a HDD full of named ripped CD tracks on it. Felt like a cool mix between consoles and a PC which it pretty much was at the time.

That Gamecube startup though ...

Are startups just practically dead now? Lol



PS2. It's got the best balance overall as far as I'm concerned. Not too flashy but not too basic and boring. The sounds though I find unbelievably unique and catchy for whatever reason. The OG 360 startup I would say is my second fav, with GCN being third.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

PS1 or the second Xbox 360 start up.

The Xbox One X start up sequence is also really good.
