Best Consoles Of The 2000s

Best Consoles Of The 2000s

PlayStation 2 (2000) and 4 (2013) 

Manufactured by sonny and still progressing. PS2 pushed more than 127 million units worldwide. The PS2 has secured exclusive rights to big franchise sequels, including Final Fantasy X, Grand Theft Auto III, Metal Gear Solid 2, SOCOM and Gran Turismo 3. The PlayStation 4 Pro is capable of outputting games in 4K resolution. PlayStation 4 is exclusive, has higher power than Xbox. 


This newer, slimmer PS1 was released a few months before the PS2. The only differences were the size (duh), interface and the extra protection against modding the console. In addition, it was easier to run the games, so we did not have to play the PSone upside down anymore.


Microsoft’s first entry into the console market was by manufacturing it. After many delays, the Xbox was released against Nintendo’s GameCube and not only improved upon online play but came with a built-in hard drive. It included gems like Knights of the Old Republic and Ninja Gaiden. 

Xbox 360 

It had the 360’s library size, wireless and easy fit, making it award-winning peripherals since the ’90s. People’s Xbox 360s would illuminate three red rings signalling that your console is bricked. The Xbox 360 was the platform for games like Call of Duty 2, Gears of War and Forza Horizon.


Released against the Xbox, the GameCube was Nintendo’s attempt to recapture the market lost by their last console, the N64. This was partly attributed to Nintendo’s focus on family-friendly games, poor online support, and little third-party support. 

GameBoy Advance

The GBA was insanely popular and technologically superior to the GameBoy Color in battery life to color palette. AFTER ITS DISCOVERY, the GBA (and GBA SP) have sold just over 81 million copies. It was also popular due to the amount of old school love, including the Super Mario Advance series, Metroid Fusion, Castlevania and many Mega Mans.

Nintendo Wii 

It is a console for unique motion controls; it has less power than the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Nintendo Wii supports games such as Mario Kart Wii, Wii Sports, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Donkey Kong Country Returns, and WarioWare: Smooth Moves.
