  • Popularity of Pong influenced the creation of Magnavox Odyssey II(Odyssey 200) in 1975


2 nd generation

2ND Generation

  • Fairchild released the Fairchild Video Entertainment System (VES) in 1976.

  • The VES contained a programmable microprocessor so its cartridges only needed a single ROM chip to store microprocessor instructions.

  • Atari dominated the console market in the early 1980s.

  • Atari released a conversion of the arcade hit Space Invaders in 1980 on Atari 2600


3 rd generation

3rd Generation

  • In 1983, Nintendo released the Family Computer (or Famicom) in Japan.

  • Like Space Invaders for the 2600, Nintendo found its breakout hit game in Super Mario Bros.

  • Famicom supported high-resolution sprites and tiled backgrounds, but with more colors.

  • Famicom used a front-loading cartridge port similar to a VCR.

  • Sega's Master System was intended to compete with the NES, but never gained any significant market share in the US and was barely profitable.

  • Mega Drive then became truly successful with the 1991 Sonic the Hedgehog.

  • Nintendo also released Super Nintendo Entertainment System(SNES)

  • Sega extended the Mega Drive with the Mega CD/Sega CD

  • Other Consoles are NEC's TurboGrafx-16 and SNK Playmore's Neo Geo.

5th Generation

  • The first fifth generation consoles were the Atari Jaguar and the 3DO.

  • It was not until Sega's Saturn, Sony's PlayStation, and the Nintendo 64 were released that fifth generation consoles started to become popular.

  • PlayStation spawned a whole lineup of consoles from generation to generation and has earned Sony great respect as a video game company, becoming the first video game system to sell over 100 million consoles.

  • CDs were used by PlayStation as Storage Medium while Nintendo 64 still used Cartridges.


6 th generation

6th Generation

  • PC-like architectures and DVD’s were the major improvement in this generation

  • PlayStation 2, Dreamcast and Gamecube were the main consoles of 6th Generation

  • 140 million PlayStation 2 units have been sold until now which makes it the best selling console of all time.

  • Microsoft also entered the console market 1st time with Xbox in 2001


7 th generation

7th Generation

  • This generation introduced motion as input, and IR tracking as well as Blu-Ray as a new storage media

  • Nintendo introduced Wii, while Sony and Microsoft released PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360

  • Unlike the previous two generations there was no dominant platform this generation and both Xbox 360 and PS3 continue to sell equally well.
