Game Consoles

Video game consoles or more commonly game consoles or simply consoles stem from the early 1970s. Back then, Atari launched the PONG, an arcade machine that became massively popular and allowed the company to launch the 2600, Video Pinball, and Stunt Cycle. Towards the end of the 1980s, Atari launched the 7600, which competed with the Sega's Mega Drive / Genesis and Master System II, and the Super Nintendo. In 1994, Sony came to the market with the PlayStation, followed in 1996 by the Nintendo 64, and in 1998 by the Sega Dreamcast. In 2000, Sony launched the PlayStation 2 while in 2001 Microsoft joined the battle with the first-generation Xbox. Today, the market is dominated by PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo. Traditionally, a video game console is a computer device that produces a video signal or a visual image to display video game that can be played by one or more people. A video game console shouldn't be confused with an arcade machine or a home computer.
