Video Game Consoles

January 12th, 2010

There has been a battle waged between video game consoles and PCs for many, many years. The first console that in my opinion was really very competitive on the market was Nintendo NES. After Nintendo NES, came Super Nintendo, and after that, many consoles emerged as well. The current generation consoles are Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. It is the seventh generation of consoles, and those are consoles released since 2004 by Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. These consoles offer superior graphics compared to its predecessors, and stunning visual effects. However, some gamers are asking the question whether graphics are the most important thing in games. Experienced gamers are looking more for innovative ideas, rather than simply improved graphics. They are interested in original games which are quite challenging. On the other hand, most gamers, especially younger ones, seem to decide which games to buy based on graphics. Some argue that this is why consoles appear to be gaining an upper hand in many countries, including Germany where recently PC game sales dropped, while the sales of games for console and mobile devices rapidly. Is this trend going to continue? It is hard for analysts to say, but they predict that the sale of games for mobile devices will definitely keep growing.
