Top Ten Worst Consoles

"Since the early days of gaming, there's been quite a few bad consoles that have come and gone, straight to console heaven. But which consoles were the lamest? Take a look at this countdown, as we check out which ones were the worst of the worst."

Link over at Max Console



What do you guys think? I totally agree with the countdown. Think they got it spot on! =D

I remember reading about the Phantom in a magazine a few years back.

It was like 'Whoa. This is some awesome stuff'. And then it never happened. Surprise, surprise.

I remember getting the virtual boy for both of my kids when they first came out. Major eye strain....

yay the mega drive (or genesis )

EDIT: Virtual boy looks like one of the weakest offerings there. What a terrible concept

Sega was my favourite ! Great sound and great games ! Rest of them I haven't really tried.

The Virtual Boy concept was brilliant until accountants and health and safety got a hold. I'm pretty sure the plan was for PS1 level hardware and a head mounted display but it got scaled back to the monochrome, barely better than gameboy level visuals and due to safety concerns about people walking round with it on, turned into a table top peep show.

I think the N-Gage should have been number 1. It sucked as a console and a phone (apparently), cant get any lower imo.
