You’ll start your journey with legendary consoles like the Magnavox Odyssey, Atari 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System, and the Commodore 64. The visual nostalgia trip continues with systems from the 1990s and 2000s, and ends on modern consoles like the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U. Throughout the book, you’ll also discover many consoles you never knew existed, and even find a rare peek at the hardware inside several of history’s most iconic video game systems. Review Featured in Wired and My Modern Met. "While services like PlayStation Now prove that streaming has the potential to increase access to older hardware-bound games, The Game Console posits that consoles themselves are important cultural objects that we shouldn’t forget." — Motherboard "Amos’ passion for gaming and photographic skills come together beautifully in The Game Console." — Kotaku "Photographed in intense, loving detail, the book quite literally unpacks 86 consoles and examines their innards." — Mashable "A perfect choice for gamers looking to build up their knowledge on video game history." — Android Central "The actual history lesson of the industry makes this more than a coffee table book." — Game Vortex About the Author Evan Amos is a passionate video game fan and photographer. His work has been featured in Game Informer, Kotaku, Wired, Retro Gamer, and other popular media outlets.
