Techno-Time Machine: Top 7 Oldest Video Game Consoles – Do You Remember Your Beginnings?

While today’s video gaming is a continually growing industry that offers everyone to play even online sex games on almost every cell phone that can be bought, we should remember that the first video game console went on sale almost 50 years ago.

7. Nintendo 64 – 1996 – Nintendo

It is Nintendo’s third console, and it got its name from the fact that it had a 64-bit processor. Time magazine called Nintendo 64, the “Machine of the Year”, and Super Mario 64 became an instant classic. The color and sound were revolutionary, and they brought video games to life in a completely different way than was the case until then.

6. PlayStation – 1994 – Sony

One of the most popular video game consoles today, the Sony Playstation debuted 26 years ago. It broke the ice for many of its successors, competing against the significantly cheaper competition. Still, despite the higher price, it broke to the top, with more than 100 million consoles sold. In a world ruled by Nintendo and Sega, the PlayStation was a breath of fresh air back in 1994.

5. Sega Genesis – 1988 – Sega

Sega Genesis was a modern console of this Asian company, as BDSM porn games for real fans are today in sex games. It had a 16-bit chip, and could even “drive” 3D graphics. Genesis came supplemented with several video games, but users could, of course, add them themselves.

4. Atari 7800 – 1986 – Atari

The Atari 7800 was like an apology to fans after the Atari 5200 console (which was more of a computer, so we don’t include it in this list). When the 7800 model was released, fans were much more excited. It is fully compatible with the older version of the Atari 2600 and had 59 video games available. The most popular game on this console is, of course, Donkey Kong.

3. Color TV-Game – 1977 – Nintendo

Color-Game had the best-selling first-generation video game console. It was sold only in Japan, but it represented Nintendo’s entry into the market. The video games on this console were straightforward but considered revolutionary because they could be played with two people or a computer.

2. Atari Pong – November 1972 – Atari

Atari Pong is often referred to as the first home video game console and consisted of a ping-pong-style game. Atari mostly made arcade games, but people just “went crazy” for Pong. Although the console served a single purpose, it was nonetheless more than famous.

1. Magnavox Odyssey – September 1972 – Magnavox

The Magnavox Odyssey is only two months older than the Atari Pong, but that’s enough to be the world’s first home video game console. It was straightforward and had no sound. The three dots displayed on the screen, which change depending on the game being played, were all you get. Despite this, the Magnavox Odyssey has sold about 350,000 copies.
