The video game console history infographic

Earlier in the week, Microsoft revealed the new Xbox One and with the next generation of consoles ready to launch, Kijiji takes a look back at the evolution of the gaming console.

Since 1976, there have been great battles over which gaming console is the most superior. Until 1982, Fairchild Channel F, Atari 2600, Magnavox Odyssey, intellivison, and the Atari 5200 all vied to become the gaming console of choice.  Back then, gaming consoles cost between $200 and $300.  Many considered the Atari 2600 to be the system to own with over 30 million units in sold, though who could forget Pac-Man (over 7 million copies sold).

With the announcement of the Xbox One, the next generation of the gaming console wars is about to begin. Sony strategically released an out-of-focus video clip of the new Playstation days before the Xbox One announcement.

The Xbox and Playstation have been fighting for video game supremacy over the years and have sparked many arguments over which console is better. Which next generation console will you be purchasing?

Do you have a ColecoVision or an Atari 2600 lying around the house? The ColecoVision retailed for $199 USD in 1982 and is now being sold for as much as $350 on Kijiji.
