The 4 Best Video Game Consoles of All Time
The bottom of all video gaming consoles, the Magnavox Odyssey was the thing from where home gaming all started. While the craze of video games had been established on vast PCs since the 1950s, it was the Odyssey that carried the experience into people’s living rooms. That time, the cost of this device was $100 which is equal to approx. £375 in today’s money. After that few more companies introduced new gaming consoles and now you can see there are dozens of gaming consoles available in the market to make your day more excited. We have listed the 4 most popular game consoles here in this article while we’ll also suggest you the one that will prove to be the best one for you.
Atari (Atari VCS/2600)
If the Odyssey was started the home console movement, the Atari VCS popularized the experience. It was one of the first consoles to run games on cartridges, opening the entrance to third-party groups creating titles for an array of hardware formats. Arcade hits like Pac-Man and Space Invaders gained console ports, converting the video game industry from a one-time craze into a billion-dollar industry. 2600 was a remarkable leap forward for the video game industry, both regarding its technology and in convincing children to disturb their parents for a new cartridge.
Sega Genesis/Mega Drive
This is also counted as the one from which I started playing video games at my home. In the early 90s, United Kingdom gamers sat down on two sides of a tense division: you were either a Nintendo fan, enthusiastically waiting to thumbs up on the colored buttons of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or you splashed out on one of these. The Mega Drive (Genesis) is the most traditional system Sega ever launched, but the reason it’s gained our favor isn’t due to their technical ability or commercial success. The Mega Drive was essential in that it was the only console to court an adult market aggressively.
The inception of the Sony era did not start with a whimper or a bang, but with an outstanding whir. If you talk about the Sega’s CD-wielding Saturn, the fight wasn’t the long enough because Sega finally conceded defeat in 1998, binning their black/gray box after losing out to the PlayStation in the great US market. Every aspect of the PlayStation was a victory, from the continuous improvement of its controller and design to the material quality of its 3D graphics, the faster game loading times to its quality first and third-party games. It was the very first console to top the 100 million marks, a number which saw Sony carry on to make games for this little gray box until as late as 2006. Sony PlayStation is still growing in its field. You can buy PS4 Games and accessories from anywhere in the world. GameStop is the official authentic online store from where you can purchase everything related to video games. You can even take advantage of GameStop promotions and coupons to save more on your purchase.
There is no any doubt that Sony’s PlayStation embarrassed the Xbox 360. That’s why it is placed at the last number of this list. The PlayStation would be top of the pile, beating Microsoft’s rival system almost two-to-one. But where Sony carried more of the same, Microsoft ventured everything by putting online at the core of its console vision — and it worked. A PC in cover, the 360 supported online multiplayer experience, and the now-standard digital media distribution. Even the subtle add-on of its game achievement award system had just blown up the new life into titles; it gave the gamers a new incentive to replay their games. The controller was significantly improved, while the Kinect is still counted as the fastest-selling ‘electronics device’ in history. All in all, a more important, more influential console than the better selling PlayStation 2.
