Forums - Sony Discussion - Best looking PS console (Design)

I think the best is...

PS1 14 17.95%
 
PS2 14 17.95%
 
PS3 17 21.79%
 
PS4 18 23.08%
 
PS5 15 19.23%

How can someone like the PS3 Slim design better than the original?
It's a worse/cheaper version of the same format.
The OG PS3 is the best looking home console ever, but I still like the PSOne simplistic design a bit better, it's so cute.

"In video game terms, RPGs are games that involve a form of separate battles taking place with a specialized battle system and the use of a system that increases your power through a form of points.

Sure, what you say is the definition, but the connotation of RPGs is what they are in video games." - dtewi

I like the original better too, but I think they each have their strengths depending on how they're positioned.  The slim wins when placed horizontally but the original is way more eye pleasing when standing up.  The Super Slim looks bad either way though.

I disagree, I have the Super Slim and anyway it sits it looks good.

It looks good looking from top, perfectly horinzontally and vertically too.

I think it looks a lot better than the Slim, actually.

The OG is the best by a good margin, tho.

The Slim is the worst, it wants so much to be the OG but looks lifeless compared to it and the Super Slim is a completely different system that stands well on its own.



The original PS4 takes the first place, followed by the original PS2. After those, everything is more or less meh or worse, potentially with some redeeming features.

PS2 Slim.

I also liked the fat PS3 a lot. Everything else not so much.

I hate how the Super Slim looks standing up but I'll grant you that it doesn't look too terrible when laying flat.  Just really cheap looking.

It's still the worst Sony system to me aesthetically... until the PS5 handily takes that "honor" when it releases.

Launch PS4 > PS3 Slim > PS1 Slim (or was it called PSOne?) > PS2 Slim. Otherwise I find the others rather ugly.

I never expected these results and varieties of opinions on this one, it's interesting.



Second place for me has to go with the PSOne, the mini version of the original Playstation, it's just so gosh darn cute.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
