Video gaming has been around for quite some time now. So have been video game consoles that have given us all those good times and brilliant characters. But in all three 3 decades if their existence, it’s not that always good that has come out of it. With every good console that hit the market and was acclaimed, there were half a dozen that probably still rot in the sewage drain outside of your home. Now, only Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are considered i the race of consoles. But it’s hard to forget the days when Atari, Sega and a bunch of others had their way and were vying for the best places in the market with teeth to teeth competition.

Now those times bring good memories. But they bring the horror of the time too. Consoles that just didn’t have, consoles which were unlucky and consoles which were etched in our memories forever to haunt us till eternity. Consoles whose burning was too vile to even witness. We are here to revisit those days and refresh the memories because every generation must learn what the last went through to come to what it has now. Many of us were fortunate enough to be not birthed during the worst of times. What better a way to tell the legend to them?

PlayStation 3

Ps 3? It’s a damn good console, eh? Well, let’s start with the less painful of the lot. The Ps3 became a very successful console but it wasn’t really the case when Sony rolled out with this one in the market. The console carried on the legacy of the Ps 2 quite like a king turned destitute. It came with jarring price tag of $600.

That would have been compensated for with other things if only those other things existed. The console’s games line-up was insipid and drab. Considering that it was succeeding the legacy that the Playstation 2 had created in the years prior, it was a technological faux pas. But Sony amended its ways. And we’ve seen a lot worse.

    I remember going to Toys R Us in 1995 for a SGEN Game Genie (I still have it) thye same week the Saturn came out. $400. I wasn’t interested. I at least thought it had cool looking and feeling controllers. I’ll take the Saturn controllers any day over the Dreamcast ones!
