Is there a 'console intro' that you are partial to?


Recommended Posts

I forgot the Switch did that, and I don't recall the LITE doing it either when we just set that up for my kid a couple weeks back.  Maybe they don't do it on there or removed it.


For me the two that come to mind already were hit, the distinct visual/audio mix of Gamecube and Dreamcast really outshine the rest mostly, though the PS2 jingle and swirling of stars/gasses looking thing into that menu isn't bad either.  I think Gamecube edges them out, not just for face value but the hidden second easter egg boot as well with the squeaky toys sounds and the laughing.  Hold Z and fire up the Gamecube to get this...


Also there is a very obscure 3rd one, needs 4 controllers still again holding Z button on all 4 of them.

Is it kinda neat that now with the PSIO I can for the first time see the proper PS1 intro and the original colorful memory card menu. 🙂 

And I always thought that opera intro when you turn on the PS3 was a nice touch.  It goes with the sexy shiny black Cadillac look of the original PS3.

The original Playstation.  

I had a modded one, and when it got to that second sound with the "SCEA" screen you knew your burned disc would work.

This is the only answer to me.  That intro/chime is up there with the iconic THX intro they use to play in theaters.  I still get goose bumps when it's pumped through a serious audio system.  I think it's the only console boot-up process that I actually wish was longer.

To be honest, there are no bad console startups (maybe Tiger).  But watching this just confirms for me that the PS1 was the best, with the US model 2 Sega CD and GameCube near the top as well.

I was referring to watching this: (I forgot to post the link)
