For me I enjoyed the rich smell my 360 had. Microsoft have done an excellent job with the smell of all their hardware the past few years. Although I'll admit the PS3's box had a wonderful woodland smell that outshone the plasticy 360 box and packaging.

Actually it was my 3DO...but that could be because the EB store I bought it from was right next to an Auntie Annie's pretzel place.

Thanks, this confirms im not so much of a nerd I used to think :)
Tho id say new hardware generally smells good.

360 very plastic, must have been those green bags that caused it (with all the cables in).
And that reminds me of the little image on those bags with a kid choking on them... such a horrible picture. I threw them away

Threw it away? Such a gripping emotion evoking image? I framed mine, it's a great talking piece at my fondue parties.

Wouldn't it have been easier to just take the bags from them?

Children don't belong in the trash. :(

Well... most of them don't.

TV plays the console, especially if you get one of those gamepads that has a game built in. Or you play games through the tv.

^ How is this thread crapping? Of all the consoles I've owned and sniffed, this was the best smelling. Or do you not consider it a console? I can't tell if you're serious, Crainger. You're like the boy that cried wolf.

Anyway, Teh Pony is flying 1st class, so you're still ****ed. And who the hell is this Doc?

My friend had a game gear. I found the smell rather repulsive. I must say, if you found it pleasant, you're taste is very... eccentric to say the least. But I respect your opinion none the less.

SNES

Ah fine choice. The SNES a nice clean modern smell compared to the dirtier smell of the Genesis/Mega Drive.

i think my best gameplay was on the SNES te very frist time i lay hands on it it was something about it it is a moment i wonīt forget
i guess on the other hand the real deal was the PS2 when we bougth it it was something about it as well but as for PC hardware wise the 360 all was more like stuf to be had.

but the Snes/mega drive period and the PS2 is the ones iīll remember most but the 360 is by far the best console i played on donīt know about the PS3 but i canīt see more difference than some graphical perhaps and it canīt be too much.
In Full HD perhaps but still too little difference to make me buy one

What did that have to do with the smell ASUSEN?

I just realised I put Our instead of Out in the thread title. ::o:

I've got a DreamCast (a very under-rated console) but I don't think i've ever given it a good sniffing. It's quite old now, do ya think it'll still smell the same. If so i'll have a sniff tonight and report back.

not maybe so much the smell of the consoles as the time in my life and playing these for the first time made an impression on me but the N64 if i canīt remeber wrong had a pleasent smell not that i sniff my consoles as much as i appreciate them if theyīre any good

but the N64 might have had a smell to it and some games it had

It was the blast processing fumes.
