Evolution of the Game Console

Evolution of the Game Console infographic

The Evolution of the Game Console infographic from OnBuy.com remembers our childhood with a timeline of the last 18 major game consoles.

Bound to bring back fond childhood memories, (for most of us!) our infographic takes you through the fascinating evolution of the home games console. Dating back to 1972 when the Magnavox Odyssey was released, our infographic will guide you through the technological advancements of the last 45 years, right up to Microsoft’s 4K-ready Project Scorpio, set to launch in December 2017.

Intrigued? We bet! Now, kick back, relax and enjoy the wonderful world of gaming.

As much as I like the content and remembering playing on the consoles, this timeline is not well designed. It's not that hard to actually line up the consoles with the correct years instead of just showing them in pairs no matter what the dates are. Why even bother putting them into chronological order if you're not going to line them up correctly?

For businesses, a timeline history of their industry is a great topic idea for an infographic.

en verdad me encanta mucho el tema de consol game porque es una cosa que hoy en dia esta dando mucho por habalar, hoy en dia si no jugarmos o no vemos un juego sera muy y muy difil en el dia de que salieron los juegos la cosa se ha cambiado un monto y ahora todo el mundo quiere jugar sea en su movil o en pc o en play da igual donde lo mas imortante es que ya quiere solo jugar.
