    If you liked Namco Museum (1995-1998) and hoped there was a book with just that sort of information out there, here it is. This title shows a myriad of gaming consoles, their evolution, and the juicy innards that we all crave to gaze upon --the circuit boards. It's a beautiful, enjoyable book that is just a little above your standard coffee table reading material.

    There is a linear style to it as it progresses forward to contemporary systems like the Nintendo Switch. You can follow the trail of system to system changes and borrowing or look at the way controllers have adapted and swapped over the years.

    Overall, a great pictorial look at the history of game consoles. The pictures and exploded diagrams/photos were great. It would have been nice to see the summary charts be more consistent (the same information in each to do an apples to apples comparison between systems), but otherwise a really good book.

    An enjoyable coffee-table book. You come to this book for its stellar photography, especially its 3-D breakdowns of many of the console's interiors. The text frames the photos, but don't read this book expecting deep new insights into each console.

    Ik dacht dat ik heel wat game consoles kende, maar in dit boek staan veel (voor mij) onbekende apparaten. De foto’s zijn mooi, maar wat waren sommige consoles toch lelijk!

    This is a great book for video game enthusiasts, in particular those who are interested in the consoles. This book covers every major console dating back from the very beginning and going all the way to the Nintendo Switch. The book focuses on the hardware rather than the software and often shows the inside of what the systems look like. There were many of these that I hadn't heard of. This was a quick but very fascinating read.
