What are your favorite console/game boot screens?

We've talked about many a thing here on the Polygon/The Verge forums but today I'd like to pay tribute to our old friend - the boot sequence.

I've posted a YouTube video below which showcases the various iterations of the PlayStation console boot sequence across all three generations of their home console to start things of.

Boy, do I wish they hadn't changed the PlayStation 3 from its original version as I feel it was a more elegant sequence than the current one Sony employs. Thoughts?

What about you folks? What console/game boot screens do you love the most?

Post an image with your YouTube links below (to keep it from looking like a dull list of links) and share your favorite memories with your Polynauts and Vergetarians (do they have a designation?)
