How old does it have to be? Do you consider the previous generation retro? What is retro to you?
I define it as a system which is out of the current generation and no longer receiving mainstream developer support.

Never really thought of any console as retro. Not a big fan of the name, sort of a little too hipster for me. There are of course classics. The 2600, Colecovision, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Genesis, PS, and the PS2. It's too soon to call the 360 and the PS3 classic since they are still being sold. One day they will probably be considered classics though.
On Nintendo it would start with the Wii, on Sony, it would start with the PS2, and MS would start with the XBox and everything from the other companies no longer in the console market imo. Once a system no longer gets support, it is retro to me. 360 and PS3 still get new AAA games so I don't consider them retro.
