Aww I had a Sega Saturn. I remember when I wanted a Dreamcast really bad when it was first coming out. D: PS1 has been my favorite console because of the games (well, you can include PS2 also since it can play both 1 and 2 games). Good times...

"i got a 360 for the online multiplayer, literally nobody i know has a ps3 but the wii is popular"

But under different circumstances, figuratively nobody had a PS3?

Oh I`m mocking your poor grasp of vocabulary.

"No PC games?
Seriously? "

What do you expect from someone who keeps mispronouncing Sega as "See-ga" Accents aside, nearly all of the sega games created pronounced the company`s name at power-on.
Nice video but incomplete. Left out a few other consoles that wanted your money also, such as 3D0 for example.

Short visual history of video games which left out all of PC Gaming which bridged many of the gaps between console generations and is pretty much a console in its own right. Pretty big omission, even in a quick recap. Should be called the visual history of console gaming.

I was thinking about getting the 360 but thought the PS3 was probably a better investment. I mean, the Xbox is blatantly better at the moment (apart from having to pay monthly for live), but give it a year and I reckon the playstation will have taken over. It`s ridiculously powerful.

I have a Wii and 360 seeing as very few games are exclusive to PS3 and most are for 360 and PS3, plus Xbox Live is amazing and none of my friends have the PS3. I pretty much still have my Wii only for Zelda, for without it I probably would have never bought it. But Zelda is so amazing and Zelda games are so incredible I always have to buy Nintendo`s latest console for Zelda and the Mario RPG.

I`ve got all three. They all have their merits.

Wii for the kids, and mindless fun.

360 for games online and off.

PS3 for.... Blu-Ray. ;)

Pretty good. Pretty amazing when you think about how far video games have come in just a little over 30 years. Think where they`ll be in another 30 years. Unfathomable.

As a sidenote, this video is awesome if you turn down the volume and have The Final Countdown by Europe playing instead.

ummmm... this is pretty much videogame 101 for casual and non-gamers. I didn`t enjoy it unfortunately.

I can`t help but feel a small amount of anger for this video totally dissing the best console of the 128 bit generation. The Dreamcast had but a blurb on the video, but yet it had the best games and the best ideas of the generation. Don`t say Xbox was better, because all it is, is a Microsoft financed Sega system. That`s why Xbox and 360 rule now. ;)
