PONG AND GLOBALIZATION: THE ECONOMIC HISTORY OF CONSOLES - 1976-1980

William Audureau



 

Why hasn't there been a French-developed console for 30 years? Why is Nintendo's very first machine, the little-known Color TV-Game 6, so important? What was the role of British players in the explosion in the "parlor" Pong fad in 1977, and its long-term consequences for the various European industries? So many questions rarely raised, but whose answers profoundly set the stage for the 80s, the decade of economic globalization and the emergence of the Japanese video game empire.


With a database of more than 1,400 vintage models and numerous graphics, Pong and globalization revisits the history of the console market in its beginnings, the period 1976 to 1980, to understand both its beginnings, its logics, and its different forms from one territory to another.
