    EDGE: Xbox 360 2nd best of the greatest gameboxes of the last 20 years.

    1. PlayStation 2
    2. Xbox 360
    3. PlayStation
    4. Nintendo 64
    6. DS Lite
    6. Gamecube [edit] oops..
    7. PlayStation 3
    8. Wii
    9. Xbox
    10. Dreamcast
    Xbox 360 has been the industry’s benchmark for eight years, and no console has ever burned so brightly for so long. In many ways it followed PlayStation’s lead, hitting every sweet spot required for success. It had its own social network, cross-game chat, new indie games every week, and the best version of just about every multiformat game. Ask any thirdparty console developer about their lead platform and they’d invariably give the same response: Xbox 360.


    In a generation with few thirdparty exclusives to separate them, 360 still places ahead of PS3. Killzone is no Halo and nowadays Gran Turismo is no Forza, but it’s not about the exclusives – there’s nothing to trump Naughty Dog’s PS3 output, after all. Rather, it’s about the choices Microsoft made back in the original Xbox’s lifetime.

    The PC-like architecture meant those early EA Sports titles ran at 60fps compared to only 30 on PS3, Xbox Live meant every dedicated player had an existing friends list, and Halo meant Microsoft had the killer next-generation exclusive. And when developers demo games on PC now they do it with a 360 pad – another industry benchmark, and a critical one.


    There were hardware problems, of course, but Microsoft spent a billion dollars repairing and replacing broken machines, escaped the PR disaster largely unscathed, and got almost every other decision and message right.

    Now, at the end of the generation, it seems to have lost its way thanks to distractions, but for eight years it’s been the best place to play the best games in arguably the best console generation ever.

    no shame in being second only to PS2. but 360 is easily the most used console i've ever owned.

    Nope.
    A hand full of bro-generic exclusives mean nothing to me
    I'd swap PS3 and 360, sounds more right.

    Games:
    Final Fantasy X
    Kingdom Hearts 1.5
    ICO x SToC
    Ratchet and Clank collection
    Jak and Daxter collection
    Sly Cooper collection
    inFamous
    LittleBigPlanet
    Gran Turismo
    Uncharted
    The last of us
    God of War
    MotorStorm
    WipEout
    Demon Souls
    Heavy Rain
    Journey
    Super Rub a Dub
    Super Stardust

    And so on, no wonder PS3 has outsold the 360 world wide. If you think the 360 deserves second place fair enough, but PS3 is king.

    No doubt, I agree with the article. That stance has changed over the past year though.

    It's a huge salute for Sony to have the PS2 on the top of that list, and I believe when this article is done in the next five years this list will be:

    1. PS2
    2. PS4
    3. PS1

    all that would happen then would be that PS4 would be 2nd and 360 would drop to 3rd if PS4 turns out to be good.

    that of course does not take account of how Wii U and Xbox perform over the next 5 years.

    Lol! PS3 is 7th!
    In terms of what the console has accomplished throughout it life span and the pure quality of content that get produced.
    I think the PS3 has proven to beable to stay very strong even in the last months of its life, well it's life in the top spot anyways.
    But I guess the PS2 definitely derves to be number one
    My list would be something like this:

    1) PS2
    2) PS3
    3) 360
    4) PS1
    5) SNES
    6) N64
    7) Wii
    8) Xbox
    9) Nintendo
    10) Dreamcast

    I'm sure everyone's list is different, but I feel this list is pretty accurate to how popular each system was, but still just my opinion.

    So what was the criteria for this list?

    Sounds like it was made from a devs point of view after reading the clip provided.

    First, your list is wrong.

    1. PlayStation 2
    2. Xbox 360
    3. PlayStation
    4. Nintendo 64
    6. DS Lite
    6. Gamecube
    7. PlayStation 3
    8. Wii
    9. Xbox
    10. Dreamcast

    Second, what is with referring to handhelds as "consoles"? They are entitled to their opinion, of course, but Gamecube over PS3? Uh....no. Meh.....opinions are opinions.

    Yeah that's a joke saying GC is better than PS3. It was a solid console but not One of the best. Should be hanging on for dear life at the bottom at best. Hell 64 was a much better system. Of course this is all opinion so, watchagonnado? Everyone's list will be different.

    I remember when a certain member on this forum was claiming that Edge was Sony biased. Putting GC over PS3 pretty well puts that conspiracy theory to rest. lol

    If it was as strong in the second half of the generation, I'd agree. Otherwise they relied on a few sequels and Kinect. PS3 was definitely stronger later on.

    Echoes my thoughts. 360 was the console to own early in the generation but they slowly kept dropping the ball IMO. They had a string product and too many different distractions kept them from dominating throughout. They gave Sony a lot of slack and they took it ran with it.

    Maybe if they stretched their limitations to include the NES that would be in first place?

    You know, I was going to rage at the list not having Super Nintendo on it. Then I realized that the SNES came out over 20 years ago. Now I just feel old.

    NES is 30 years ago. If it was "of all time" then yes it would be nearer or at the top.

    That's a load of BS lol. Come on. It's an amazing console and definitely deserves one of the top spots in the history but that statement is so far off, you need AFx16 to see it.

    Take EDGE with a grain of salt right guys (referring to the EDGE magazine cover of Choosing the PS4)? Surprised it beat out a Nintendo console.

    oh yea, it's also not the best console generation ever...this was a horrible generation. this was probably one of the worst I have witnessed. Maybe the last one was before Nintendo came out with a console aka gaming market crash. i'm just glad this generation is ending on a good note - GTAV. Thank you Rockstar, you rock dudes!

    True. I agree we got some great new IPs (Uncharted, TLOU, etc) it would be stretching it to say it was the best.

    Really the last 4 years were good...and the last 2 years were the best, right? It seems like we were hit with the worst economical drought since the deep depression. it makes sense.

    It's almost like PS3 was a wasteland for the first couple of years and the 360 was a wasteland the last couple of years. Overall PS3 still has more popular titles and it was utilized more. I mean, they're not that far apart honestly but they both should not be in the top 5...neither the generation should be.

    How much fun I had with the PS2, I can take 6 years out of that and compare that to the 4 years we had this generation and it's still not as good.
