Earlier this week Mark wrote up his thoughts on the Xbox One X, and the UI in particular. And that got me thinking: what console has had the best user experience - hardware aside - of all time?
A console's UI is obviously more important these days than, say, two decades ago. Hell, most consoles didn't really have much of a menu: you popped in a cartridge, and went from there. But with digital distribution, consoles' capacity as media centres, and other storage functions in general, the usability of a console OS has become more important.
Something that I was oddly always partial to was the Xbox 360 dashboard. It was a bit too ... large? But it was fairly straightforward, it was easy to find all the things you needed, and it was a relatively snappy experience.
For the record, I preferred the old 360 dashboard. Wasn't a fan of the new one at all.
Of late, the Switch experience has been pretty good. It's partially helped by the fact that there's a lot less data and inventory for the Switch to manage. There's no Netflix app. No separate area for movies or music. Not much required for online management. And let's not talk about the friend features. (Why, friend codes.)
But what about yourselves? As for the day to day experience, what consoles have you enjoyed living with the most?
