Years ago, the Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis, or just about every other old console really only allowed people to play video games. Over time, consoles became more sophisticated, allowing folks to pop a CD into a console to listen to music or throw a DVD into the device to watch a movie. But other than that, most consoles throughout history have been focused on gaming.
With the new generation of consoles, the Nintendo Wii, Sony PlayStation 3, and Microsoft Xbox 360, all that has changed. Gaming is just one part of the experience of using those devices. And thanks to continued updates, it’s clear now that all a person really needs in their living room to be entertained is a game console.
