Abstract:

From Atari to Sega, from Apple to Nintendo DS, this full colour book takes not a regional, or European, but a global view on 33 years of onscreen fun and interaction and presents hardware from Japan, USA, UK, France, Germany and Korea, along with classic software in its authentic, pixellated glory.

This greatly enhanced and revised edition provides a time journey across the video game era: from the 4-bit beginnings to the broadband future.
