A video game console generation is a time era in which certain consoles were released. The video game generations are used to classify consoles.

Classification Standards

The following is a list slightly altered from Wikipedia:Category:History_of_computer_and_video_games Wikipedia showing each console and the generation it belongs in. The alterations include:

  • All-in-one consoles (such as the CDX/Multi-Mega) are not included, as they did not require a new format of media.
  • While most consoles are released relatively closed to each other in terms of time frames, systems that toe the line between two generations, such as the Jaguar will be sorted based on how and when the system was marketed.
  • Home computer systems, despite having a huge market in the video game industry, are not counted as consoles, so devices like the MSX and Commodore 64 will not be seen in these lists.

Second Generation Consoles
