How Game Consoles Evolved

Every day is a new day for game consoles and gamers like us. The advancement in games are in a very rapid phase, and the products being release today are fast becoming more advanced, more convenient, more interactive, and more entertaining.

Video games were with us decades ago, but the market is not is massive as it is today. To name two of the pioneers in the world of gaming, we have Atari and Nintendo. If not for these companies who have brought video games to our homes, I think that we will not be able to have Playstation, Xbox, and Wii today. These game consoles are considered as the most advanced and best consoles of all time.

Nintendo revolutionized the gaming world more than 20 years ago when they release a very powerful (back then) 16-bit console. This saved the industry from dying and it instantly became a part of everyone’s lives, together with the release of some of the legendary adventures like Super Mario and the Legend of Zelda.

PlayStation entered the gaming industry almost 10 years ago when we thought that gaming is once again in a dying state. Sony was in the right time and at the right place when they released Sony PlayStation because back then, consoles were using cartridges that are more expensive and more vulnerable to damages, compared to CDs which are relatively cheaper and more durable.

Up to the time of this writing, Sony continues to dominate the industry together with Nintendo and Microsoft. It is very hard to believe that from large boxes; we can already have our very own gaming system in our homes, and are able to play matches using the most advanced accessories like the eye camera peripheral and motion sensing controllers. How I wish to live longer to witness the matches that the next generation will be playing.
