With all the rumour and conjecture going around the traps concerning the next generation of videogame consoles, we here at Stevivor.com thought it might be a good idea to take a peek into the past. Home consoles have been around since the 1970s and there are a number of clear generations, so what has gone down over the years?
Stick with us over the next few weeks as we cover off the difference between previous console generations—we’ll take a look at what’s changed and what hasn’t from a general perspective, as well as what was going down in the market at the time. Hopefully this will provide some insight into where we are at currently. That said, some of what was happening in the larger electronic entertainment market may well apply, but don’t be TOO despondent if we only gloss over something you’re really interested in.
