I have a boxed and unused ColecoVision in my loft.

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."

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'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.

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.
