The Best Games Consoles Ever Made

With the release of the new PS4 and Xbox One consoles only a couple of weeks away in the UK, I thought perhaps it might be time to write an article that provides a rundown of some of the best gaming machines ever made. Although you might think I’d start with the Commodore 64 or one of the earlier models, in truth, these products were pretty basic, and with game loading times of over half an hour, they weren’t really that impressive.

Don’t get me wrong, tape games were definitely the catalyst that helped to start the revolution we’ve seen in the quality of graphics and playability, but in my own personal opinion, the first models truly worthy of praise didn’t come until a few years later. Still, you might disagree, and if you do, feel free to comment and let me know.
