Poll: SNES vs Genesis, or X360 vs PS3: which had stronger rivalry? (33 votes)

X360 vs PS3 39%
SNES vs Genesis 61%

SNES / Genesis era predates gamespot, but in terms of general gaming history knowledge, which pairing had the most rivalry? (i.e. SW rivalry like the one this forum is based on)

Does this thread belong in the Legacy Systems forum?

In my mind, the Nintendo vs Sega rivalry will never be topped.

Sega vs Nintendo was epic but at the end of the day, gamers were happy to play something they didn't have access too at a friend's.

During the PS3 vs 360 days it wasn't just the companies... the advent of the internet and forums such as these allowed gamers to become complete trash to one another. It was a truly disgusting era for gamer culture. Thus, I voted for this.

I remember all of us gathering at 1 house for the day and everyone bringing their systems. We'd play Street Fighter or Mario Kart on my SNES then switch to Keith's Genesis for some Xmen or PGA tour. Then we'd bust out Dalton's Turbografx 16 for some Splatterhouse and Bonk's Adventure. Nobody claimed their system was best or someone's system was trash. We just played games and enjoyed them. When we got bored of our own games, we switched systems for a few weeks for some variety.

The whole system wars mentality is for tools.

Sega Genesis Versus Super Nintendo is my favorite Rivalry. But Xbox 360 Versus Playstation 3 was closer and more intense.

Both of my favorite consoles won Super NES against Sega Genesis and just barely PS3 beat Xbox 360.

Best generations for console system wars.

I don't think the Sega vs. Nintendo war will ever be topped. While Sega and Microsoft are multi-industry conglomerates that have other industries to support them, Sega and Nintendo were pure video game companies that only had video games to support them. This meant there was far more at stake for both companies in the Sega vs. Nintendo war. It was an "all or nothing" battle of attrition, where both companies were fighting for their survival.
