THE GAME CONSOLE: A PHOTOGRAPHIC HISTORY FROM ATARI TO XBOX

Evan Amos



 

The Game Console is a tour through the evolution of video game hardware, with gorgeous full-color photos of 86 consoles. You'll start your journey with legendary consoles like the Magnavox Odyssey, Atari 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System, and the Commodore 64. The visual nostalgia trip continues with systems from the 1990s and 2000s, and ends on modern consoles like the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U.


Throughout the book, you'll also discover many consoles you never knew existed, and even find a rare peek at the hardware inside several of history's most iconic video game systems.


A revised and expanded second edition was released in 2021, containing brand new content, with coverage of 50 more consoles, variants, and accessories.
