The lights are on
The PS3s design (Thick and Thin) was sleak and original. I always prefer "feeding" the console the disk as opposed to placing the disk in a case or the PSone, Dreamcast, and GameCube becuase doing it other than feeding increases the risk of scratches. No previous console curved the way the PS3 does. There's a lot more to design than just the outward appearance.
I agree. The GameCube was a great console in design, features, and performance. I loved the GameCube and PS2. Both designs were well done in my opinion.
