This is a thread where we will be looking at the evolution of all the different gaming consoles like PlayStation, Xbox and all the Nintendo things!
Now, the website I’m using doesn’t seem to include the PSvita or the PSP and I’m unsure where they would fit into the timeline personally but for anyone wondering, those are the handheld consoles they released!
It’s also worth mentioning that this list isn’t exactly Chronological, if you want to read more here is my source. The source has far more information than I will be giving so please read those!
