Real shame that as they progressed I think they got less awesome, although the PS3 original startup sound was amazing imo but Jez the PSVITA and PS4 are just .... wow. lets not bother guys.
I haven't said anything cause I will obviously be the odd one out to say that I prefer the PS4 which basically as good as not having anything.
I'm not against you too much on a nice fast startup, the Switch comes to mind for me because I very very rarely see the systems start up, 95% of the time I'm putting the system into sleep or else waking it so the startup screen is me pressing A to get back into my game immediately, the vita and ps4 both have the simple design... but then also have the seizure warning before the home menu so it kinda has the EULA warning as a part of the systems startup which makes it less video games fun and more... HERE'S THE BUSINESS SIDE OF THINGS IN YOUR FACE BEFORE YOU CAN PLAY.
