There were no video game consoles created at this time.
Games were mainly played on mainframe computers.

1967: First video game console was created by Ralph H. Baer (a.k.a "The Father of Video games)
It was called the "Brown Box" because it was a wooden, bulky, rectangular box.
It also had two gaming controllers and was able top be connected to a TV.
Other Companies "Hop on the Bandwagon"
1972: Magnavox released their first home console called the Odyssey.
The FIRST Console
Only six games for the console: ping-pong, tennis, handball, volleyball, chase games and a light gun game.
1973: Atari released the Atari Pong Arcade Machine, which became really popular.
Because of its popularity, two year later (1975) Atari marketed the game as a home console.
Nintendo also created a console in 1978 called Nintendo Game and Watch but it was not as popular.
The Rise of Nintendo and Sega
1983: Sega release the SG-1000. It was not well-known since it was never launched in the U.S.
The SG-1000 was the foundation for their more popular game console the Sega Master System launched in 1985.
1983: Nintendo released the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).
The NES was the best-selling console of the generation and made Nintendo a company that was easily identified with gaming.

Decline of Atari
Between 1982-1993, Atari released several other consoles (ex. Atari 5200, Atari 7800, Atari Lynx and the Atari Jaguar)
These consoles could not compete with the popularity of Nintendo and Sega.
The Switch from Cartridges to Discs
First company to make a disc (CD) compatible console was Phillips.
1991: Phillips released their CD-i console. (Considered a failure for poor games and controllers.)
This opened tha capability of switching from 2-D graphics to 3-D graphics since discs contained more storage space.
(**Looks kinda like a VCR (tape) player.**)
Sony vs Sega vs Nintendo
1994: Sony launches the Playstation.
Playstation was very popular when released.
Sega had to wake up and create a new console since they were in "a daze" from the success of their MegaDrive Genesis System.
Sega expanded on their genesis console and made it into a trilogy releasing the Genesis 2 in (1994) and the Genesis 3 in (1997).
Nintendo lagged behind inthe "competition" with their Nintendo 64 console that still used a cartridge system.
Sega Genesis Trilogy
Sony Playstation
Nintendo 64
Consoles of Our Generation
2001: Sony creates Playstation 2.
2001: Nintendo finally switches over to CD based console with the release of the Nintendo Gamecube.
2001: Microsoft enters the gaming industry with the first XBox.
Sega phases out of the video game console industry. (No new releases of consoles.)

Nintendo Gamecube
Microsoft XBox
Recent Consoles
2005: XBox 360 released.
2006: Playstation 3 released.
2006: Nintendo Wii released.
2009: Wii Motion Plus released.
2010: Kinect for XBox 360 released.

After the releases of these last consoles, Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony began to just add add-ons (motion controls) to the controls of the consoles.
