    Nice! I really enjoy these kinds of history of games articles. Good read.
  • Shnubby - December 3, 2012 12:40 p.m.

    How have you managed to make an article about redesigned consoles without mentioning a DS??
  • Redeater - December 3, 2012 12:59 p.m.

    I was going to say because it isn't a console yet they included the PSP in the article......strange.
  • wingsdjy - December 4, 2012 10:03 a.m.

    It was lumped in with the GBA discussion.
  • Redeater - December 3, 2012 1:01 p.m.

    I find it very strange that one of the most popular consoles of all time (PSX) has only had 2 redesigns. Good article though.
  • Fhiend - December 3, 2012 2:03 p.m.

    what about the Gameboy and Gameboy Advance redesigns? also the DS and 3DS? One more thing, is there anyway I can get high resolution versions of the pictures of the consoles that you used for the article? I would love to have them as the background for my phone or my computer or my PS Vita.

    What revamped console did I get the most use out of? Gameboy Advance SP. Then the micro.
  • jenovalife1 - December 3, 2012 3:26 p.m.

    you forgot the gameboy advance redesign with the SP and SP ultra that had better backlights and weirder colors

    There's one thing that can be said about the Wii it hardly changed from it's release date in the way of software and hardware until now with the unnecessary Wii mini.

    3ds and 3dsxl?
  • brickman409 - December 3, 2012 5:50 p.m.

    what about all the gameboy and DS redesigns?!?!?!

    Not to be a heckler, but the 360 didn't launch with Arcade and Elite models. It launched as Standard and Pro models, where the only difference was the harddrive (although, I want to say the controller for the Standard was wired.). The Elite came later, with a new color and massive harddrive, and while all three coexisted for some time, the Pro, with its hilarious 20GB, was eventually phased out and the standard was renamed the Arcade. The more 'ya know

    It was Core and Pro/Premium. The Core edition had a wired controller and no HDD. Pro/Premium had a wireless controller, 20GB HDD, and the disc tray was chrome plated. Sorry, couldn't resist.

    I think you missed a big opportunity covering the PC Engine / TurboGrafx-16. There's the PC Engine, TurboGrafx-16, Core Grafx, Core Grafx II, PC Engine Shuttle, PCE CD-ROM2, PCE Super CD-ROM2, SuperGrafx, PCE GT, TurboExpress, PCE LT, TurboDuo, PCE Duo, PCE Duo R, PCE Duo RX and oh my I can't stop send help.

    CD-I anyone? did they have like a hundred?
  • winner2 - December 4, 2012 11:19 a.m.

    I remember good memories of the genesis 2 and nomad. Played green dog, vector man, primal rage, nba jam, sonic and such on them. And I remember getting the original play station with spyro for christmas, that was a lot of fun.

    I actually really liked the Game Boy Micro. It was small enough to fit anywhere, it had decent battery life, and it was fairly inconspicuous, so you could play games really wherever you wanted.
  • Rowdie - December 5, 2012 9:08 a.m.

    How 'bout a CDX pic in the genesis frame?
  • dcobs123 - December 11, 2012 12:10 p.m.

    Looking back at the old ps3 reminds me, did the people behind Spiderman 3 ever try to sue Sony over the logo?
  • thochaos - December 12, 2012 1:14 a.m.

    Probably not. Sony console and Sony movie, it was probably all legit.
