3D, Blu Ray, 1:1 motion control and a bucket load of exclusives will keep me happy for years to come! I love evolution in my gaming.

That's one thing I miss from the old days, there wasn't as many fanbois.

I've been a gamer for 25 years myself...every since 5 years of age. And I must say it is amazing how far gaming has come. Keep it coming!

Yeah we have come a long way...I love today's systems, just wish I had more time for them.

Not to sound old here: enjoy it while you're young as real life gets in the way later.

The original Odyssey and Odyssey 2 and 2600 were not 8 bit machines as the article claims.

What, no Turbo Grafx 16, Jaguar, or Lynx?

The 6507 used in the 2600 is an 8-bit microprocessor from MOS Technology, Inc.

I remember playing the Turbo Grafx 16 at a cousins house a long time ago. I loved it. It had a cool game called China Warrior on it similar to Kung Fu on the NES.

Don't forget there was also the Neo Geo, Neo Geo pocket and the 3DO system.

kramun2908d ago (Edited 2908d ago )

I wanted a Neo Geo when it came out because it was so powerful at the time, but God it was expensive. The games cost nearly as much as a snes.

teedogg802908d ago

I also wanted one badly. Speaking of the SNES, do you remember when games cost $70-$80 when it first came out?

OpenGL2908d ago (Edited 2908d ago )

Yeah, most Neo Geo games were way more expensive than SNES games because they were made in more limited numbers, and they held a lot more space than any SNES cartridge ever did. The last official Neo Geo game to release was Samurai Shodown V Special in 2004 which was a 708Megabit(88.5Megabyte) cartridge, and sold for roughly $360. In comparison the largest SNES game was only 48Megabit(6Megabytes).

Well I'm from the uk, but I think they were about £50 over here, so they were quite pricey.
