What would be the cutoff considering older computers have cartridge ports and some consoles have add on keyboards. I feel the C64 is the most neglected "game console", some don't realize all the cart games available.

:shock: BOOKMARKED!


Double bookmarked! WOW, what a site and resource, will be invaluable. That is pretty much what I am looking for, information-wise, now to :D consolodate :D to a list. A 1-568 list that fits on like 7-8 pages, year/console/region/etc, etc. Do keep adding to the thread, and then I will post a poll to establish parameters that the majority feels will be most useful. Then garner all the info on here, that site, other sites and hopefully come up w/something refined and useful to the community.

I did not read through the entire thread, but in case no one mentioned it, I want to point out there are a ton of pong clones. I think there are over 50 of them, and they are all very much "video game consoles". Your quest to collect every system ever made is a daunting one. You could try to tract down the pong ones for years and never complete it, not to mention going for the mainstream systems. Neo Geo CD alone, comes in 3 flavors and the n64 came in several colors which could be considered separate systems to collect for a serious collector.

Glad everyone found our website interesting. It is still a work in progress, but we are knocking it out bit by bit.

I can't assist with the handheld time line since we are focused on consoles (at this point), but here is a pretty comprehensive list of every programmable system that has been released:

I still need to add this current gen systems along with some of the new oddballs (OnLive), but for the most part this is complete. Some clones are included, but to be honest I haven't kept up with them.

Looking forward to contributing to the community.

At least two?! To be honest, I've never heard of more than the blue/yellow color scheme.
