It’s true that there are many video game systems out on the market, but did you know about some of these facts?
1. Nintendo was founded by Fusajiro Yamauchi in 1889 as a card company, and then evolved to become a toy manufacturer. In 1956, it became an independent company called Nintendo Co., Ltd.
2. Sega began importing slot machines from Japan to America in 1957 and continued until 1974 when they realized that they can make more money by making their own games instead of just importing them.
3. The Atari 2600 is credited with being the first popular home console game system because it sold 30 million units before its production ended in 1992!
4. The PlayStation, which is the most successful gaming console of all time, was released in 1994 and sold more than 100 million units by 200.

Video gaming consoles have been around since the 1970s. The Magnavox Odyssey, released in 1972, was one of the first ever games systems to be sold commercially.
Nintendo’s Game Boy wasn’t considered a game console because it played only cartridge based games and didn’t play anything from discs or tapes like other companies did at that time.
Atari 2600 is often called “The Granddaddy Of All Games Consoles” by many gamers who grew up during its heyday with over 30 million units being sold worldwide between 1977 and 1992
Sony has had some really huge successes when it comes to their PlayStation series which is now on its sixth generation – Playstation Vita! It offers cross device integration for the PS Vita console and a library of games for the PSP, which is Sony’s previous generation.
The Wii U was released in 2012 by Nintendo as their newest game system to date. It features an innovative controller that can be used on its own or with the TV screen
A release timeline diagram shows how gaming systems have evolved over time from 1972 to 2018. In this 66 year span there are six generations of consoles – if you were born before 1977 then you will remember using some ancient technology like Atari 2600!
– Other than these five we’re not sure what other facts about video gaming systems might surprise us? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below! We’d love to hear them!
Throughout history, video gaming has been a popular form of entertainment.
– In 1972 the first game console was introduced to society – it is known as Pong and required users to play games by using two control sticks that could be pressed like buttons or wiggled like joysticks
These early consoles were only able to display simple shapes in black and white on their screens. It wasn’t until 1983 when Atari released its most famous system called the ‘Atari 2600’ which had around 22k bytes of RAM and came with 15 games installed in ROM memory
But these are not all there is! Let’s take a look at five facts about your favorite video game systems you might not know before reading this article:
* The Wii system was Nintendo’s first home console to use motion-sensing controls, which allowed people to play games with minimal physical activity
* You may have heard of another gaming system called the ‘Xbox One,’ but did you know that it is Microsoft’s third attempt at a game console? I will not go into detail about why they released two systems before this one
* Sony has been making consoles for over thirty years and during its history many different versions of their popular PlayStation system were introduced. The latest version dubbed the PS Vita Slim came out in 2012
These are just some facts from now on when you think back to your favorite video game systems – don’t forget these five!
* Pong required users to play games by using a dial controller and a button
* Intellivision was the first company to introduce voice-controlled gaming, which allowed players to make their game selections by speaking into an attached microphone
* In 1985, Nintendo released the ‘Family Computer’ in Japan. It wasn’t until 1988 that it made its way around the world
* The Sega Genesis (known as Mega Drive outside of North America) had both cartridges and disks for storing games
* Unlike other video game systems like Atari or Vectrex who have disappeared from today’s market, Sony is still making consoles after all this time!
* Nintendo’s GameCube was the last console to use cartridges (rather than disks) as its primary storage medium. The company has since released newer consoles that rely exclusively on optical media for game distribution
* The Xbox 360 is the best-selling video game console of this generation, beating out its closest competitor by a sizable margin. It’s also home to some of the most popular games on any platform
The Nintendo Ds was the first handheld console to have a touchscreen.
Atari is pronounced as four syllables, not three. It’s ‘A T A R I’.
– The Sega Genesis had an attachment for reading comics on it because of the popularity at comic book conventions in America.
In 1993, Sony’s video game division declared bankruptcy after releasing only one product – their PlayStation system that they released two years prior, which sold more than 100 million units worldwide by July 2007! Now if that doesn’t tell you about how hard this industry is then nothing will..at least we can always rely on Japan for innovative technology every once and awhile with them coming out with things like VR headsets and smartphones without the physical buttons.
It’s worth noting that the Nintendo GameBoy was not actually named after the computer “gameboy” – it was originally called the ‘Game & Watch’. The name change came about because they were looking for a catchy pun to give off an idea of what this new console would be capable of doing, and so they dropped the space between ‘game’ and ‘watch’, which coincidentally happened to have been missing in their original logo!
