We’re more than halfway through our Geek Madness: Console Wars competition and have arrived to the much-anticipated Elite Eight round.
There are some excellent matchups in store this week that will require your votes below, but first, let’s quickly recap the last round:
NES — 85%; Intellivision — 15%
No contest here, as the uber-popular NES absolutely demolished the 16-bit Intellivision console.
Atari 2600 — 79%; Atari 5200 — 21%
In a battle of Atari’s, the classic 2600 outlasted its successor and moves on to face the NES in the Elite Eight.
Xbox 360 — 53%; Nintendo Wii — 47%
Really tight battle here between two of the most popular modern consoles, but it was Microsoft’s 360 squeaking out a victory over Nintendo’s Wii.
Playstation 2 — 57%; Nintendo DS — 43%
Another tight battle on the Modern Gen side of the bracket, with the PS2 ultimately outlasting Nintendo’s popular handheld device.
Now for this week’s matchups. A big thanks to Geek Madness: Console Wars sponsor Nytec for helping to make this feature possible.
