    Whenever my grandfather passes away, I`ll be getting a Colecovision and an Atari 5200.

    It really is a shame that the Gamecube was undersold. Even at its release, games for it looked soooo pretty compared to PS2 games.

    Take a look at FFX and Star Fox Adventures.
    Star Fox Adventures was a crap game, story and gameplay wise, but it looked beautiful, and was only released one year after FFX.

    I had a PONG game console. Then I was in the Marine Corps and skipped over all the others. By the time I got out it was all on PC.

    You can tell this was made by some kid jumping around Wikipedia. The Turbografx 16 didn`t use discs, the games were still cartridges, but they were really small for the time. About 1/8 thick, and around the size of a playing card. I have fond memories of playing Slaughterhouse for the first time on that system.

    I`ve still got somewhere the Grandstand Adman 2000 pong machine my dad got us in the 70s. I say `us` because I distinctly remember him telling my mum that it was for the family *before* he got it but after he`d got it he treated it like it was best china, something only to be brought out when the good friends came over. I was probably about 5 when he got it and within another 5 years things had progressed to the zx spectrum home computer days.

    Mostly accurate, but quickly done and not always factual.

    Typo: ufnits (ps2)
    PS3: Has 256 megs of video RAM and 256 megs of general purpose RAM, not 256 Video and 512 general.

    That`s without looking and fact-checking, just perusing the page. Also, the fact there`s no info on the PS4/One makes that infographic a little bit dated.

    I remember first seeing Atari VCS. I was about 5 and couldn`t really articulate it but, I thought: "This is different. Something is changing."

    I have a boxed and unused ColecoVision in my loft.
