Reasons To Ditch The Xbox 360 #4: It ain’t pretty


Let’s face it: the Xbox 360 isn’t the best looking console on the block. Whether you go for the original vanilla iteration or its premium matt black sibling, it’s a bit of a stone cold minger — and that’s before you take the brick-sized power supply unit into account. As the centerpiece of a home theatre system, it looks kind of laughable.

By contrast, the Sony PlayStation 3 is a marvel of modern engineering (George Foreman Grill comparisons be damned). While the original model was, shall we say, ‘generously proportioned’, its successor is every bit as lithe as its Xbox 360 rival — and a whole lot sexier to boot. If you care about the aesthetics in your lounge room, go for the PS3 Slim.
