Have you ever wondered how it is today advanced game consoles got up? Are you curious about their trip and a little nostalgic on yesterday’s consoles?
The first game console developed was Magnavox’s Odyssey, and although it was revolutionary at the time, its design and feature set were very limited.
It allowed players to control only the flash on their TV. Gaming consoles really only began to develop when Home Pong was introduced in 1976 and a year later, the Atari 2600 with its killer application: Space Invaders.
Finally, in 1983, the Japanese company Nintendo introduced the family computer, or Famicom for short, which ushered in an era when the video game console really began to have an identity.
Now big companies like Sega, Sony and Microsoft have been fighting over who can provide the best overall experience, which includes the best gaming console.
What does this mean for the evolution of the game console? What game consoles were developed later as a result of this race? Which of them were considered the best? What new and expanded features did they have and which are the best today’s game consoles? We answer all these questions in our video.
