Whenever I begin playing a few games on my Xbox 360, I couldn’t help but wonder how it came to be. My parents tell me that video games were not exactly popular back in the days and that it was considered an concept of their future. With this in mind, I began to remember my early childhood memories when it comes to video games. And since I didn’t have anything great to do now, I decided to do a little research about the whole history of video game consoles. In my surprise, I recognized that the very first games I had back when I was a child wasn’t the”first game console”. I had this notion that my previous console was the first first created, so I guess it was really worth the time exploring about video game consoles.
In any case, let us start our blast before as I take you straight back in the humble beginnings of our treasured video game consoles.
The notion of playing games in the front of the television was considered absurd and also a matter of the long term. All except for a single Ralph Baer who conceived one absurd idea; the capability to interact with your tv, which includes playing games on it. It was in 1951 while constructing tv sets for Loral at Bronx, New York. In 1966, he successfully built a game called”Chase” in which two dots chased each other round the monitor. He showed the thought of his new manager, R&D owner Herbert Campman, that he was given some funding and his project was shot by the company as a formal one. A Couple of years after, Ralph Baer successfully created the”Brown Box”, which is considered as the Fantastic grandfather of all video game consoles
A few years after, Magnavox decided to invest on video games and made the very first video game console called the Magnavox Oddysey. It was really an innovation as it had been the first video game which may be linked to a television set. It was also the first when it comes to console peripherals since you’re able to purchase a light gun which you’re able to link to the console when playing games.
