The Evolution of Games Consoles That Nobody Bought

In these days where Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft have an iron grip on the gaming market, its hard to remember when any company with a little bit of money and a dream could try it’s hand in the video game market. Every true fan can trace the family tree and evolution of their favourite game consoles. Whether it’s Nintendo’s long and distinguished line, the mid 90s Sega upstart or the rise of the modern day giants of Playstation and Xbox.

However, history may be written by the winners but don't forget that it has the occasional loser too. Regretfully the history of the games console led to the road of console progression being littered with the broken plastic husks of many less popular systems. Atari Jaguar, Amstrad GFX, Nokia N-gage, Nintendo Virtual boy, all of these names have been consigned to the waste bin of history. Used as both laughing stocks as well as commercial warnings.

But then there are other systems, the Sega Saturn and Dreamcast, Neo Geo, Phillips CD-I and Panasonic 3do. These consoles show that even well designed, powerful and even well known machines can fail. History may be written by the victors, but the losers are important to. Here we look at the evolution of games consoles that nobody bought.
