- For me, it’s tied between GameCube and PS1
If I stick to the picture, PS1 indeed! That retro futuristic sound was out of this world. It was always hyping to hear it before playing some TekkenID: hhwq0zs
Simply epic.ID: hhwxdry
I remember playing Tekken at Blockbuster, Free Arcade, it was great.ID: hhx02z0
I remember syphon filter 1 and the first tomb raider being the first realistic shooting games i played and I would get excited hearing the start up sound knowing I had the next 2 days to just binge play with my brother taking turns.ID: hhx7gjw
Technically on the PlayStation, you got 2 for 1 when playing a PS game. You got the Sony boot sound and the PlayStation black screen sound.
Playstation 1 was so satisfying to listen to
Kinda have a sweet spot for the original PS-soundID: hhwqo90
The BEOWWWWWW of the Sony logo was so foreboding. Either you’d get to play and you’d get the SCHWIIING of the PS logo, or you’d get the boot menu and it meant your little brother had been flinging your copy of the new demo disc that had an entire playable level of Rosco McQueen Firefighter Extreme around the house and scratched the shit out of itID: hhwtr6x
That startup screen would leave you hanging for an eternity before that “everything is ok” schwing.ID: hhwwuk0
Unless you were alive when PS1 came out you will never really appreciate how epic the start up sound was in comparison to the systems that came before it. When you turned it on for the first time it made you think "wow this a premium entertainment system" instead of just a toy. That ended up being true for me in a way since at that age I also used it to play my music CDsID: hhwqgf8
especially when followed up with the mgs konami jingle
Edit: Here’s the best version of the boot upID: hhw0ikp
Ah, it sounds just like I remember...ID: hhwbqna
Came here for this sound effectID: hhwtrh4
The Jason Derulo/DJ Khaled of OG start upsID: hhwfe9q
Always felt like a bit of a justified flex. Hearing human voices on consoles was kinda rare at that time so for me that was just awesome.ID: hhwcaqz
Came for this.ID: hhwmys7
Most Sega games didn’t have that sound though. It was mainly used for Sonic games.ID: hhwjj1n
About the only thing I remember about Sega was that startup sound and just how cool it was.ID: hhw0hlj
The best commercials ever made. "The Bully"ID: hhw0wgv
In italian sega means the action of "jerk off" for males lmao
Ps one, all the way!
Why isn't GameCube on that picture it was obviously the bestID: hhvozy1
Showing the Z button alternative to friend who didn't find out yet was the ultimate flexID: hhw41gi
Don't forget the super secret 4 controllers plugged in holding Z startupID: hhw9w4x
I remember I found out that one by accident.ID: hhvowk0
I definitely won't forget the good old sound of that gemID: hhvptnq
I mean, it has Nintendo up there.
The true answer is the ps2
GBA was really refreshing, and is tied so hard with golden sun for me
The PlayStation 2 sound for me.ID: hhx452m
Yeah, if you weren’t awake yet, that start up sound will get you there lol.
...Nothing comes closeID: hhvzmaz
ITS SPHERICAL! SPHERICAL!!!
Ps1 all the way
Idk about best, but I'm least likely to forget the Sega sound.
Xbox 360 for me
Original Xbox. So much nostalgia to that start up. Booting the console way to early in the morning, trying to turn the TV down to avoid waking anyone up.ID: hhvwj8o
Blub blub blub blub. Aaaraaarrrrwoooooaaaar!
SEGA, but only the games that actually audibly said it. Sonics are the only ones I know that did it, but there may be others.
NES & SNES. Didn't waste my time with start up sound, just straight to the game.
The EU Sega Saturn sound.
Ps1 or Sega for me, hands down.
