YouTuber Swarki takes us on a trip back through the history of console gaming with a compilation of startup screens and sounds from video game systems from the last 40+ years. Along the way you’ll be treated to classics like the original PlayStation and Xbox, along with rarities like the Halcyon and the Video Challenger.
THE BEST Consoles
Love Hultén’s Pixel Vision 2.0 is a much smaller and thinner portable retro console than the original one he released back in 2015. Available in a one piece or clamshell design, it can store over 10,000 games and plays SNES, Megadrive, Game Boy games and more.
Analogue’s latest high-def retro console is for Sega fans. The Mega Sg uses FPGA tech, not software emulation, to play Genesis, Mega Drive and Master System cartridges. A separate adapter for the Game Gear and other consoles is also planned. Drops 4/2019 for $190.
The Atari VCS is a retro console inspired by the look of the Atari 2600. Aside from letting you play hundreds of classic Atari games, it will also be compatible with many modern games. It can also stream and play music and video and is compatible with external storage. Drops 2019.
Costing just as much as the standard Xbox One X, the console’s limited Project Scorpio Edition has a graphic pattern on the exterior and “Project Scorpio” printed on the console and the included controller. It also comes with an exclusive vertical stand.
The Xbox One S just came out, and modder Ed Zarick has already transformed the console into laptop form. The slimmer, lighter console makes for a more portable machine than ever. It’s got a 19″ display built in, and a 4K HDMI output. Enter on twitter for a chance to win one.
