The vita didn't have a 54.2% hardware failure rate and a horrid controller that requires alkaline batteries.

The 360's controllers could be powered by rechargeable batteries, so that's a silly thing to nitpick at.  The Vita, on the other, requires proprietary memory cards that cost 4x as much as the SDHC cards compatible with Vita's direct competitor, the Nintendo 3DS.

Sony Vita 8 GB card = $29.80,  3DS compatible SDHC 8 GB card = $7.74 

Sony Vita 16 GB card = $39.99,  3DS compatible SDHC 16 GB card = $9.99

Sony Vita 32 GB card =  $59.00,  3DS compatible SDHC 32 GB card = $12.99

I mean, are you kidding me with those price differences?

The RROD was a major issue for the 360, no doubt about it.  But I'll take the software library it compiled over its lifespan over a device whose own manufacturer rapidly ignored after release.

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

I have a 200 GB Micro SD in my Vita, your argument is invalid! =P

Homebrew is awesome.

Anyway, I kinda missed it, how often are you allowed to vote? I just assumed one time per day is ok, but since I'm posting shit right now, I figured I just ask to be sure.

You eliminate the Xbox which launched Halo, Forza - the industry leaders in their genres to this day, the groundwork for the best controller in the industry, the console that perfected online gaming we know of today, and eliminated silly memory cards? Yet you keep consoles you've never touched and know little about, and consoles that killed the company's hardware future? Huh?

Flawed thread is flawed. The Xbox deserves to be in the top 5 - at least. Today's consoles would be much different beasts had the Xbox not have existed. That makes it 'important' to say the least.
