Default A brief history of video game consoles

I stumbled upon this a minute ago, I thought some of the gamers of the forum would like to see what video game consoles used to look like. P.S...I'm old enough to remember most of them....LOL

loving it...
I used to have an atari 2600,
I've still got a mega drive /genesis
I had a sega saturn as well until I sold it on ebay last year

I've also still got an old console that's not listed on that site, one called a BBC Grandstand, it's a bit like the super pong I guess, where you have the paddle controllers with dials to control what's going on on the screen

The oldest ones I remember are the Atari systems, I never had one but my friend did and I played it all the time. I still have an NES and a Sega Genesis in my closet. I used to have a Super Nintendo but I sold that on ebay a long time ago for quite a nice chunk of money considering I got it for free.

Seriously I didn't even know they made video game consoles way back in 1970 so I definitely learned something.
